SuperNATURAL is a Roland-exclusive technology that
captures the vivid, realistic sound changes and unique playing
characteristics inherent in acoustic and electric musical instruments. Responding
to a player's delicate, emotional performance techniques, SuperNATURAL provides
natural, organic expression that has not been possible until now, pushing the
creative powers of electronic musical instruments into a new dimension.
The GS Format is a Roland specification that defines the manner in which
multitimbral sound sources respond to MIDI messages. The GS Format
includes specifications of sounds, functions available for Tone editing,
effects (chorus and reverb), and additional standardized parameters. Any sound
source that carries the GS Format logo is compatible with any GS Music Data (music
data created under the GS Format).

the VR-09 Editor, and Air Recorder, visit

The D-BEAM Controller uses an infrared beam of light to send
various controller changes depending on the function selected.
GM2 (General MIDI System Level 2) is a set of standards for editing
voices not covered by GM1. GM2 also defines the operation
specifications of effects and other elements in detail, and enables more
sophisticated performance expression and greater compatibility by expanding the
range of voices.

Perform On Stage with No Boundaries!
Inspiration at the Speed of Live
With the V-Combo VR-09, our aim was to develop an advanced stage instrument
where the underlying technology is completely transparent to the user,
allowing all keyboardists to create their own unique sounds simply, without any
special knowledge. To this end, we've created an intuitive, free-flowing interface
that lets players easily edit tones, apply effects, and store and recall the state of the
instrument instantly, all while performing live.
Combining top-level Roland sounds and powerful real-time controls
with an ultra-intuitive user interface, the V-Combo VR-09
makes it simple to deliver your best while performing live.
In addition, we've incorporated state-of-the-art DSP and sound module technologies, as well as Roland's
extensive sound libraries, into the V-Combo VR-09. More importantly, the passion and ideas of Roland's
engineers and the know-how of many professional musicians have gone into its development. Every part of
the V-Combo VR-09―from tones to effects to usability―has been honed to create a full-spec, performance-ready
keyboard that will bring a new level of expression to players everywhere.
The satisfaction you feel with a musical instrument is measured by how you're inspired by playing it, touching
it, and experimenting with it. When you play the V-Combo VR-09, we hope you discover new sounds and new
ways of performing that our development team never dreamed of.
A Message from the V-Combo VR-09 Development Team
Instant Access to Inspiring Tones
and Live Expression
World-Class Organs
Pro Acoustic and Electric Pianos
Vintage and Modern Synth Tones
Dynamic Performance Tools
Roland’s renowned SuperNATURAL technology powers the V-Combo VR-09’s classic tone
wheel organs, while nine harmonic bars provide authentic real-time performance control.
A newly developed transistor-type organ is also included, offering the unique sound of
combo instruments from the 1960s. The 61-note keyboard has an
extremely fast response, perfect for essential organ techniques such
as trill, sputter, glissando, and percussive hits.
Piano is a cornerstone sound for live playing, and the V-Combo VR-09 is filled with
a wide selection for covering all musical styles. The gorgeous acoustic grand piano
features 88-note stereo multi-sampling, delivering pro-level tone that rivals Roland’s
dedicated stage pianos. Many popular vintage E. Piano sounds are onboard as well,
along with complimentary effects such as vintage phaser and tremolo.
The V-Combo VR-09 is packed with a ton
of ready-to-play synthesizer sounds, from
vintage analog classics like JUNO strings
and ‘80s synth brass to textured, modern-era
digital tones and beyond.
WAV, MP3, and SMF songs can be played directly from
convenient USB flash memory, giving you a full-band
sound for working solo or with small combos. A wide
array of onboard rhythms offer backing for practice and
performing.
Intuitive Operation for Expressive Stage Performance
Instant Access to Piano, Organ, and Synth Sounds
Quick Save and Recall
Looper Function
The V-Combo VR-09 was designed from the ground up with the needs of live players in mind. An
intuitive front-panel layout and clear LCD screen offers quick access to Roland’s top piano, organ, and
synth sound engines, along with plenty of real-time controls for expressive tone manipulation. 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.
An intuitive front-panel layout and clear LCD screen offers
quick access to Roland’s top piano, organ, and synth sound
engines. In addition, the smart interface makes it simple to
set up splits and layers on the fly.
Store your favorite keyboard settings
in user memory locations for instant
recall on stage.
The onboard looper allows you to record and
overdub tracks on the fly and build amazingly
rich ensemble sounds in seconds using the
V-Combo VR-09’s large selection of tones.
