With a focus on vintage electric pianos that drove many legendary pop, rock, country, and R&B songs from the late 1960s through the 1980s, the new electric piano sounds include waveforms taken from the highly regarded SRX-12 Classic EP expansion board, the original VR-760 combo and the current RD-800 stage piano.
In addition, the update adds 15 synth sounds from the popular Synth Legends collection first created for the JUPITER-80/-50. The 15 sounds feature detailed SuperNATURAL-powered reproductions of tones from historic Roland synths, including the JUPITER-8, JUPITER-6, JUNO Series and the D-50.
The Roland V-Combo VR-09 keyboard is an affordable, easy-to-transport rig (weighing just 5 kg) for gigging keyboard players, with dedicated piano, organ, and synth engines containing essential tones for live use.
