HISTORY
THE TECHNOLOGY
PBM (Physical Behaviour Modelling)
At the heart of the V-Accordion is Roland’s new, proprietary
PBM sound engine and modelling technology. Physical
Behaviour Modelling uses complex algorithms to accurately
recreate an acoustic accordion’s sound characteristics. The
result is a faithful simulation of the actual physical behaviour
and expressive nuances of an acoustic instrument.

in the Marche region. This
factory in Italy belongs to the
Roland Corporation group,
whose headquarters
is located in Japan.
The production of
V-Accordions is quite a
long, accurate and precisely
arranged working process
resulting from a strong
passion to create high-quality
and appealing products.
VOLUME
After several years of
research, in 2004 the dream
of Roland’s founder,
Mr. Ikutaro Kakehashi, came
true: Roland developed the
V-Accordion, the first digital
accordion based on a new
technology called “Physical
Behaviour Modelling”.
The V-Accordion models
are made in Italy, by Roland
Europe in Acquaviva Picena,
Bellows Movement Modelling
PVA (Pressure Variant Amplifier)
This function controls the dynamics of each reed sound, based
on the high-resolution bellows pressure sensor. Starting and
stopping, hysteresis threshold, inertia, expression curve, and
volume are all individually programmed to reproduce a true
free-reed sound.

The tone colour of each reed sound is also shaped in

The pitch of each simulated reed is varied individually.
As the bellows is pushed

Based on extensive research of the different tuning types
used throughout the world the V-Accordion’s note-by-note

reproduce many different accordion types for various genres
of music.

Sergio Scappini
Sergio Scappini teaches accordion at the “Giuseppe Verdi”
music academy in Milan.
He won a lot of national and international competitions,
among them the XXIV “Trophée Mondial de la C.M.A.”
(Confédération Mondiale de l’Accordéon).
Roland Europe invited him to collaborate with its V-Accordion
project, the first digital accordion in the world, which he
later showcased in Italy, Germany, Japan, China, South Korea,
Switzerland, Canada, Usa, Croatia, Australia and Spain.
He’s currently actively involved in the promotional activities
of Roland’s V-Accordion instruments aimed at unconditionally
spreading the value of the accordion instrument worldwide.
On November 2010 he received the “HAMAMATSU
ELECTRONIC ARTS AWARD” which is certainly one of the
most fascinating awards received from the corporation.

Super Realistic Accordion Simulations
The FR-7x has 41 keys (with velocity and aftertouch), 120
velocity-sensitive bass buttons (6 bass & chord modes and 5 free
bass modes to suit your playing style) and can simulate up to 80
different accordion instruments each including 14 treble registers,
26 orchestral sounds, 7 bass & chord registers, 7 free bass
registers, 7 orchestral free bass, 7 orchestral bass registers, and
7 orchestral chord registers.Thanks to the Bass to Treble mode
the FR-7x can be used like a “Bassoon Accordion”.
In this mode the bass part is played with the right hand (the bass
and chord buttons are inactive). Moreover the programmable
Drum function allows you to play percussion sounds with the
Bass & Chord buttons.There’s even a unique Bellows Resistance
Regulator that can be set to match the player’s strength or
preference. Increasing or decreasing the bellow’s inertia is simply
a matter of selecting one of four positions on a conveniently
located wheel.
…and organ simulations
Thanks to the Virtual Tone Wheel sound engine, the FR-7x
allows you to play amazing organ sounds, by using Treble (upper),
Chord/Free Bass (lower) and Bass (pedal) sections.
Virtual Tone Wheel controls will allow you to personalize your
organ sounds to satisfy every musical genre.

Ludovic Beier
Born in 1978, Ludovic Beier learned the accordion from his
father and benefits from being part of a musical family. He
was brought up in the French tradition of the instrument and
turned to jazz a few years ago. At only 25 years old, he was
playing on the French, European and American scene with
some of the top players of the Jazz style including Angelo
Debarre, Paquito D’Rivera, James Carter and even Toots
Thielemans at Carnegie Hall in New York City. He also had
the great chance to play at top festivals and places around the
world such as: Birdland (NYC), Olympia, Salle Pleyel (Paris),
Blue Note (Milano), Festival de Jazz de Montreal (Canada), San
Francisco Jazz Festival (US), Phoenix Hall (Osaka) etc. At 33
years old, he certainly is giving the accordion a new name as his
fingers go across the keys in an almost unbelievable way, both
swinging and amazingly creative in his improvisation. Along with
his virtuoso playing, he’s a creative rewarded composer and
arranger in many different fields: Roland V-Accordion Festivals
in Roma since 2008, TV, Movies and talented artist’s projects.
He recorded several albums with his own name. “Pop, Swing
and Fire”, the last one was released in May 2011.
In 2004 he joined Roland family as a testimonial in the
promotional activities of Roland’s V-Accordion instruments,
bringing the FR7x to some famous stages sharing notes with
well known artists.

Roland is pleased to introduce another milestone in digital
musical instrument history – the FR-18 diatonic.
It is a dream for accordionists seeking a world-class diatonic
instrument that can do it all. With the same sound quality as
Roland’s acclaimed V-Accordion line-up and with dedicated
new samples, the FR-18 digital diatonic will satisfy traditional
folk-based musicians. Available in black and red, the FR-18 fits
into a variety of playing environments, preserving elegance and
respecting tradition. Traditional diatonic acoustic accordions
have only one tonal key, but the FR-18 has no limits because
musicians can create their own instrument in real time. The
introduction of orchestral and percussion sounds as well as
virtual tone wheel organs means that the FR-18 can adapt
to any kind of musical genre. The FR-18 has no internal
speakers so it’s extraordinarily light. A pair of inner-earphones
is also included so the musician can play diatonic accordion
immediately after opening the box. As a silent diatonic
accordion, the FR-18 is perfect for practising in the evening and
in small apartments. A long battery life means the FR-18 can be
used in all types of situations, indoors and outdoors.

landmark in music history. Dallapé’s historical models like the
“1871”, “Liturgica” and many others, that are displayed at the
Accordion Museum in Stradella, can now be played again by all
accordionists and lovers of such epoch-making instruments.
The Alpine expansion contains sounds of German folk
acoustic accordion and typical Oberkrainer orchestral
instruments.
How can this be possible? A smart package with USB memory
has been released by Roland containing the sounds of these
historical acoustic accordions, that were obtained by means of
a sophisticated and refined sampling process.
The Dallapé sound library is now available as a sound
expansion package dedicated to all Roland V-Accordion
models belonging to the “x” series.
V-Accordion | 32
These sounds are dedicated to Oberkrainer music, the typical
music genre of some areas in the world like Slovenia, Austria,
Germany.
This sound expansion contains special samples of
characteristic instruments for this kind of music, like Bariton,
Clarinet, Guitar, Trumpet and Bass Tuba.
Dedicated Sets will help users to play Oberkrainer music
without any pre-programming work.
