At the Winter NAMM show, Roland announced the VR-760 Performance Keyboard. This first-of-its-kind instrument features sounds for the modern keyboard player, such as Roland's acclaimed "Virtual ToneWheel" organs, FP- and RD-Series pianos, all-new electric pianos with COSM Amp Modeling, and SRXpandable synth sounds. A 76-note waterfall keyboard and expressive new controllers--including a D Beam, Active Expression and V-LINK--make the VR-760 a powerful choice for first-class keyboard sounds.

The VR-760 is designed to give keyboard players convenient access to the best organ, piano and synthesizer sounds. The organ sounds are derived from Roland's VK-Series Combo Organs, praised for their authenticity and detail. Onboard COSM Amp and Rotary Speaker Modeling complements the organ sounds, while the VR-760's waterfall keyboard captures the feel of a vintage organ--great for glissandos.

For pianos, the VR-760 takes its lead from Roland's popular FP- and RD-Series instruments. Everything from expressive acoustic grand pianos to bright pop pianos can be found--bolstered by COSM Mic Modeling for improved ambience and tone. The VR-760 even sports a new selection of electric pianos--complete with COSM Amp Modeling--to give players those classic "suitcase" and "stage" sounds. These are, quite simply, the best electric piano sounds Roland has ever offered.

The VR-760's synthesizer section boasts some of Roland's finest sounds ever, with a maximum of 128-voice polyphony. Sounds are set up into easy Tone categories and can be directly edited via front-panel knobs. Two SRX expansion slots make it easy to customize the VR-760 with sounds for any musical genre.

The VR-760 also incorporates a variety of expressive controllers for even more exhilarating performances. With the D Beam, players can adjust functions like rotary speed, octave or glide using an infrared light beam. Active Expression makes it possible to slowly fade in a layered sound using an optional expression pedal. And with V-LINK, musicians can trigger video clips from the keyboard when used with the Edirol DV-7PR Digital Video Workstation (sold separately).

Connections to the VR-760 include stereo 1/4-inch outputs, stereo XLR outputs, Control Pedal and Expression Pedal inputs, a Hold Pedal jack, stereo Headphone jack, and MIDI In/Out/Pedal In jacks.
