Roland’s gorgeous new Atelier SL-Series captures the qualities
of the finest traditional organs. Experience the ultimate in
musical expression and fun!
Designed around the same basic concept as all Atelier organs —
fabulous traditional organ sound, exciting real-time performance options,
and effortless compatibility with all other AT-Series models — the new
upgraded AT-SL Series is a true landmark from Roland.
This new series boasts an impressive array of improvements and
software upgrades. Its jazz organ, classical organ, and theater organ
sounds are better than ever, and its sound set has been expanded
with new voice variations and new tones, such as strings, accordion,
and choir. There are more internal rhythms too — all recorded by
professional drummers — plus a new Rhythm Customize function.
And the sound is delivered with powerful, spine-tingling reverb and
cathedral-like ambience.
There are also more real-time performance possibilities with the
upgraded Active Expression feature, Manual Percussion, fun new
Quick Registrations, improved Music Assistant, simplified screen
layout with new color scheme, and much more.
As always, the floppy disk drive lets you exchange data with any
AT-Series organ for perfect compatibility with all other Atelier models.
The luxurious design, with graceful lines and impeccably crafted
wood finish, adds a dignified presence to any room you place these
models in, while the elegantly simple console, with the same basic
design and panel layout as other AT-Series organs, ensures that the
instruments are intuitive and easy to play.
Whether you are new to the organ or an advanced player,
the AT-SL Series will bring you the most stunning, dramatic, and
luxurious organ-playing experience imaginable.
Expressive Rhythms and Auto-Accompaniment
Superb Voices and Sound Features
An Amazing Array of Rhythm Effects to Vastly
Increase Your Real-Time Performance Possibilities
Fabulous Organ Sound and Expanded Performance Options
Exquisite Traditional Organ Sounds
The AT-SL Series offers a rich variety of stunning
jazz organ, pipe organ, and especially theater organ
sounds that are better and more powerful than ever.
There is also a footage sound source feature* that
lets you change the “pipe footage” right on the console. Use the Digital Harmonic Bar function on the
touch screen to freely adjust the drawbar levels and
volume of each footage, for an expanded number of
sound combinations. In addition, you can choose
from a range of highly
customizable organ
effects such as Reverb,
Rotary, Sustain, and
more. This is the way
an organ should sound!
*Available on AT-90SL and
with Flute option on AT-80SL.
Hundreds of Voices for World Music
In addition to fabulous organ sound, the AT-SL Series
also offers hundreds of high-quality, realistic instrument voices from around the world and across the
centuries. There are many more strings, accordion,
and choir variations, as well as exciting new traditional
instrument sounds, such as Chinese Er Hu, to expand
your musical expression. Of course, you can combine
these voices with organ sounds to create an almost
limitless repertoire of performance options.
More Active Expression Tones
The upgraded Active Expression function now has
even more instrument voices to add a rich, expressive
touch to your performance. You can increase the volume while adding a varied selection of instrument
sounds to your playing — such as the unique textures
of brass, the mood and movement of strings, or the
subtle harmonies of layered organ sounds. Get ready
for rousing organ-playing fun!
Enhanced Manual Percussion
Manual Percussion allows you to play percussion
effects on the lowest 15 notes of the lower manual.
These 15 notes let you accent or fill in percussive patterns in real time during your performance, while to
the right of these notes the lower manual plays using
normal registrations. There are 14 percussion sets to
choose from (the AT-60SL has 7 percussion sets).
Outstanding Piano Performance
Each model in the AT-SL Series
has an extended 76-note lower
manual and incredible stereosampled grand piano sounds, for
authentic piano performance.
There is also a damper pedal that
provides the same effect and expression as an
acoustic piano. The lower manual has a Split function too, in case you want to add different instrument sounds to your piano playing.
Expanded Realistic Rhythm Section
Convenient Rhythm Search Function
One of the greatest features on the AT-SL Series is the
wide range of rhythms* and musical genres it puts at
your fingertips. The greatly expanded built-in rhythm
section is sorted into categories, and provides numerous rhythms for each genre or style. Best of all, the
rhythms incorporate actual drum and percussion
phrases recorded by professional drummers, so the
nuance, timing and stress
are all astonishingly alive
and real.
With the Rhythm Search
function, finding the right
rhythm is a breeze. You
can search using your
choice of name, beat,
tempo, genre or group to
quickly select the ideal
rhythm for the style of music you are playing.
*There are 252 rhythms on the AT-90SL, 222 rhythms on the
AT-80SL, and 182 rhythms on the AT-60SL.
The Harmony Intelligence feature creates gorgeous
harmony based on the chords you play on the lower
manual. Choose from a wide array of harmony
types, including Strings, Hymn, Harp, Jazz Scat, Big
Band, and more. Ensemble-type performances have
never sounded this great!
Instant Expressiveness:
Style Orchestrator
The Style Orchestrator buttons let you instantly change
the style of the automatic accompaniment to one of four
arrangement variations. From simple to elaborate, these
arrangements add an exciting
new level of real-time expression to your performance.
Powerful Speakers and Sound System
All AT-SL Series sounds are delivered with awesome power and resonance through multiple fullrange speakers. A mighty 30 cm woofer* gives you
truly thunderous bass. Models with a woofer also
feature the RSS (Roland Sound Space) Reverb audio
enhancement system, which produces a room-filling,
cathedral-like ambience.
*Woofer speaker and RSS Reverb available on AT-90SL and AT-80SL.
Edit the Rhythm
with Rhythm Customize
The new Rhythm Customize feature lets you edit
many of the internal rhythm patterns. You can change
the drum voice, add a cymbal to the beat, adjust the
timing, and make other
edits to create your own
unique rhythm patterns.
Use the onboard floppy
disk drive to save your
original pattern for use
on any Atelier organ.
Harmony Intelligence
Music Assistant with Search Feature
The new and enhanced
Music Assistant, now
with an easy-to-use
search feature, puts more
performance options in
your hands. From a vast
collection of the world’s
best-loved songs, simply select the keyword that
most closely suggests the character of the song you
want to play — the Music Assistant instantly selects
the optimum rhythm pattern, voice for the melody,
and other panel settings. With hundreds and hundreds of Music Assistant presets*, you’ll never run
out of things to play.
*The AT-90SL offers 2,000 Music Assistant settings; the AT-80SL
offers 1,600 settings; the AT-60SL offers 1,200 settings.

navigate! The panel design — the result of consultation with professional players from around the
world — also helps ensure that operation is simple
for beginners to learn and remember.
Large Color LCD Touch Screen

screen makes playing the organ more effortless and
enjoyable than ever before. The simpler screen layout and new color scheme let you perform the same

With the AT-SL Series, you can use music files that carry any of these marks:
General MIDI
GS Format
General MIDI is a set of recommendations which seeks to provide a way to go beyond the limitations of proprietary designs, and standardize the MIDI capabilities of sound generating devices. Sound generating devices and music files that meet the General MIDI standard bear
the General MIDI logo. Music files bearing the General MIDI logo can be played back using any General MIDI sound generating unit to produce
essentially the same musical performance.
General MIDI 2
The upwardly compatible General MIDI 2 recommendations pick up where the original General MIDI left off, offering enhanced expressive capabilities, and even greater compatibility. Issues that were not covered by the original General MIDI recommendations, such as how sounds
are to be edited, and how effects should be handled, have now been precisely defined. Moreover, the available sounds have been expanded. General
MIDI 2 compliant sound generators are capable of reliably playing back music files that carry either the General MIDI or General MIDI 2 logo. In some
cases, the conventional form of General MIDI, which does not include the new enhancements, is referred to as ‘‘General MIDI 1’’ as a way of distinguishing it from General MIDI 2.
SMF with Lyrics
The GS Format is Roland’s set of specifications for standardizing the performance of sound-generating devices. In addition to including support for everything defined by General MIDI, the highly compatible GS Format additionally offers an expanded number of sounds, provides for the
editing of sounds, and spells out many details for a wide range of extra features, including effects such as reverb and chorus. Designed with the
future in mind, the GS Format can readily include new sounds and support new hardware features when they arrive. Since it is upwardly compatible
with General MIDI, Roland’s GS Format is capable of reliably playing back GM Scores equally as well as it performs GS music files (music files that
have been created with the GS Format in mind). This product supports both the General MIDI 2 and the GS Format, and can be used to play back
music data carrying either of these logos.
XG lite
XG is a tone generator format of YAMAHA Corporation that defines the ways in which voices are expanded or edited and the structure and
type of effects, in addition to the General MIDI 1 specification. XGlite is a simplified version of XG tone generation format. You can play back any XG
music files using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in mind that some music files may play back differently compared to the original files, due
to the reduced set of control parameters and effects.
‘‘SMF with Lyrics’’ refers to SMFs (Standard MIDI Files) that contains lyrics. When Music Files carrying the ‘‘SMF with Lyrics’’ logo are played
back on a compatible device (one bearing the same logo), the lyrics will appear in its display.
