The 61-key VR-09 offers a streamlined appearance and rugged design that will stand up to years of gigging in town and on the road. The control panel's matte finish hides fingerprints for a clean look, and also eliminates harsh reflections from stage lighting that can reduce visibility. The VR-09 is packed with a ton of ready-to-play synths, from Roland analog classics like JUNO strings and JUPITER pads to textured, modern-era digital tones and beyond.

Drawbars give analog touch and detailed control over classic rock organs (tone wheel, transistor) and pipe organs. Modulation and pitch bend are easy and accessible via combo control. Seven simultaneous effects include rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and customizable MFX, with dedicated knobs that tweak multiple parameters with a single twist for powerful sound shaping with minimal effort. It's easy to set up splits and layers on the fly, and to save all your keyboard settings in user memory locations for instant recall on stage.

The most surprising features are the D-Beam, which functions almost like a theremin, allowing sounds, effects and controls to be triggered by motion gestures, and the iPad editor. The free editor for iPad gives powerful, intuitive control of the organ and synth sound engines via your tablet touchscreen interface. (Quickly edit organ sounds and customize vintage tonewheel characteristics such as leakage, click noise, and rotary speed, and easily access synth sounds to build custom tones and layers.) Convenient, cable-free communication between the V-Combo VR-09 and iPad is simple to set up with Roland Wireless Connect, or link up with a USB cable via Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.

Thing is light as a feather; soft case included. Weighs 12 pounds, and can run on batteries for busking or noodling in the tour bus with a small external speaker.
