Truly Portable Performance Plus Sweetwater-exclusive Sounds!

Gig out in style with an ultra-portable Roland V-Combo VR-09 61-key performance keyboard. From the lavish concert halls of New York to the bustling busking scene of Seattle's streets, Chicago's oldest jazz clubs to Austin's latest honky-tonk joints, you'll feel right at home with your VR-09. Sporting three integrated instrument configurations in one, an organ, a piano, and a versatile synthesizer, the VR-09 covers the bases from gospel to dubstep. Best of all, we've included a Sweetwater Exclusive sound library expansion created by Daniel Fisher, so you get twice as many sounds to start with compared to a stock VR-09!

Three top-level sound engines cover all the bases

Combining Roland's acclaimed SuperNATURAL-powered Virtual Tone Wheel organ engine with their orchestral sound engine and classic synth sounds, the V-Combo VR-09 will never leave you high and dry on tones. Whether you need a whirling organ (complete with leakage and click noise), a glossy EP, or an old-school SH-2 analog synth, you've got it all! What's more, there's a whole host of cool effects onboard the VR-09 to flesh out your tones, such as overdrive, amp emulators, phasers, and rotary cabinet emulators, including a cool Twin-Rotary effect.

Packed with the performance options you need

Whether you're rocking one of the V-Combo VR-09's classic synths or putting its Virtual Tone Wheel organ through its paces, you'll be delighted by the sheer usefulness of its front panel controls. A set of nine harmonic tone bars gives you all of the organ control you could ask for, and there are dedicated control sections for the VR-09's piano, synth, effects, and other sections, all bolstered by a large LCD screen. Then there's the D-BEAM optical controller, the onboard looper, and a 61-note keybed that's fast and responsive enough for any serious organ player.

Gig anywhere with this ultra-portable keyboard

How much would you expect a feature-packed keyboard like the Roland V-Combo VR-09 to weigh? Twenty pounds? Thirty pounds? Not even close! Despite all of its cool gizmos and nifty gadgets, Roland managed to get the VR-09 down to a mere 12 lbs. 3 oz. But that's not all - the VR-09 can also run entirely on batteries for the ultimate portable playing experience.

Roland V-Combo VR-09 Performance Keyboard Features:
  • A super-portable 61-note keyboard that comes packed with Roland's top organ, piano, and synthesizer sounds
  • Includes Roland's SuperNATURAL Virtual Tone Wheel organ engine, orchestral sound engine, full-wave piano sounds, and classic synth emulator

The right keyboard for small church organist

I orderd the VR 09 last year from Sweetwater. Everything arrived in excellent condition, thanks Alan Carter. I have learned to love this keyboard. The keys are a little bit shorter than the keys on my other keyboards, that took just a little getting used to, but for organ work it's excellent. The drawbars respond in a very accurate way. I change drawbar movements while playing for expression, to get that church sound. I grew up playing a real Hammond B3 so I know how the drawbars should behave. I do lamant the discontinuance of the Roland PK 9 20 note pedal keyboard, which I understand was the perfect pedal companion for the VR 09. But Hammond has come out with a twenty note pedal keyboard that makes a good substitute. But it cost more than the VR 09 does. I've found the electric pianos to be excellent and very useful in worship services. The strings sound very authintic and respond well weather marcoto or legoto. The drum machine works good with the pianos or any sound not using the volume pedal. It's pretty much useless for regular organ playing, because the volume is strictly global, so when you drop the volume back for expression in organ playing, the volume on the drum machine drops as well. I like the fact that this keyboard is so light. It makes it easy to carry from location to location. I was worried that it being so light that it would slide around on the stand, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that Roland somehow addressed that issue, and my keyboard stays put, even with the light weight of it and while playing organ smears across the keyboard. I use a Space Station V3 amplifier, which sounds excellent with every instrument sound in the keyboard, so that's likely the best companion amplifier for this keyboard to get the best stereo desperssion, especially with the Leslie spin. That is another thing that this keyboard does well, is the electronic Leslie. I also like the drawbar leakage setting. The Chorus/Vibrato, and the selections of speaker cabinets. I like the Ring Modular best with the Rock organ. The FX are useful all around, but layering up causes some cacophonies that are not always useful, so you have to tweek your way through that to get the right sound, nothing you want to do on the fly. The D Beam works very well, and is quite useful. It is wonderful with the FX setting (I like the downward wind chimes). I guess the best thing about this keyboard is that you get so much bang for your buck. If your an organist at heart with a small bank account, I will tell you that the VR 09 does not disapoint, weather considering the electronic Leslie, the EPs or synth sounds. For accustic piano the keyboard jsut doesn't feel rioght, and the sixty one note limit is hard to live with. But if you use a two tier stand, you'll likely have a piano keyboard and a MIDI cable connecting the two keyboards together, it makes beautiful music.

Outstanding stage rig! Versatile and easy to navigate during performance. The patches are high quality, nothing Rinky-dink about this sound! Studio quality patches and clarity in a feature packed keyboard. The organ function is awesome - lots of control over your sound parameters gives convincing B3/ Leslie feel. Wurly sounds like the real deal. A joy to play... Love it!

Love the VR09. Purchased strictly for home use. We have made a nice and sturdy black wood stand with a music holder. Hope to spend many hours getting acquainted with it. Harold Sublett, Hohenwald, Tn.

VR 09

The Roland VR 09 is a light weight versatile keyboard that is easy to use. It has very nice Organ, Piano and Synth sounds that can be modified while playing. I am delighted with how the Looper feature functions and how easy it is to use. Since it can be powered by batteries, it is a take anywhere instrument.

Great Keyboard

I'm not really a keyboard player but this board is great for string, horn & organ fills. I also use it for a duo using sequences. I have been wanting one of these since they first came out. I am not disappointed.
