Description



Focused on performing musicians, The Roland V-Combo VR730 provides fantastic organ, electric piano and other classic keyboard sounds in a compact 73-note waterfall keyboard with the design focused on performing musicians.

With hands-on control and a range of features designed to enhance both solo and ensemble performances, the VR730 is the perfect instrument for the stage. Including 9 drawbars for organ control, a large array of knobs for controlling tone and effect parameters, an on-board loop station, rhythm patterns and an in-depth synth engine, the VR730 provides enormous power in a light-weight, portable design.

73-note Waterfall Keyboard with Vintage Look and Feel

The V-Combo VR730 delivers top-quality organ, electric piano, acoustic piano, and synth sounds in a travel-ready instrument with a 73-note waterfall keyboard. You don’t need to carry around that heavy vintage combo organ, rotary speaker, and traditional EP anymore—the VR730 gives you the essential sounds and authentic playability you need while saving your back. The onboard organs faithfully respond to classic techniques, while the historic electric pianos—which include a selection from the acclaimed RD-2000 Stage Piano—offer impeccable tone and touch. And with the smart user interface and direct access controls, you can focus on playing without being bothered with fussy adjustments and complicated settings. The V-Combo VR730 is the perfect instrument for pro performers on the move, providing versatile, gig-ready sounds in a highly mobile package.

Classic Waterfall Keyboard for Authentic Vintage Organ and Piano Performances

The VR730 is equipped with a 73-note waterfall keyboard with semi-weighted action, ideal for playing traditional organ techniques like trill, sputter, glissando, and percussive hits. As soon as you put your hands on the keys, you’ll feel right at home with the smooth touch that has just the right amount of resistance. The quick response thanks to Quick Firing feature makes it easy and comfortable to play fast passages, percussive attack expressions, and soft glissandos. The waterfall shape also provides a friendly feel for piano players, and the extra octave is a welcome addition for those used to 61-note keyboards, offering extended playing range and bigger zones for splits.

Gig-Ready and Easy to Carry

Vintage gear is great, but it’s not very practical for the average working keyboard player who needs to travel light. A combo organ, rotary speaker, and electric piano can add up to several hundred pounds, and are very bulky and difficult for one person to move. The VR730 includes all these sounds and more in an instrument that weighs just 21 lb. 14 oz./9.9 kg, so it’s a breeze to transport and even easier to set up. And with support for battery operation, the VR730 delivers the ultimate mobile convenience for street gigs, weddings, and various on-the-go events.

Hassle-Free Operation for Expressive Freedom On Stage

The VR730 was designed from the ground up with the needs of live players in mind. Its smart, nicely organized front-panel layout features a clear LCD screen and dedicated organ, piano, and synth sound sections. This gives you direct access to all the essential sounds you need, plus lots of real-time controls for expressive tone manipulation. Seven simultaneous effects include rotary, delay, reverb, tone, overdrive, compressor, and MFX, and the dedicated knobs tweak multiple parameters for powerful sound shaping with minimal effort. It’s also simple to set up splits and layers on the fly, and to save all your settings in user memory locations for instant recall on stage.

Authentic Combo Organs with Virtual Tone Wheel Tech

With the VR730, you’re able to deliver authentic organ performances with all the tonal characteristics of revered vintage combo organs. Roland’s latest Virtual Tone Wheel Organ engine faithfully emulates the sound-generating process of a real tone wheel organ in every way, while nine harmonic bars provide classic hands-on tone control. Rotary effects are vital to the combo organ sound, and the VR730’s three genre-oriented types make it simple to call up the right rotary tone for any style, from gospel and pop to jazz and rock. You can also deepen the sound further with the Twin Rotary effect, add some grit with tube-style overdrive, or call up the ring modulator for a more aggressive sound.

Anchor Your Music with Essential Electric and Acoustic Pianos

Piano is a cornerstone sound for live playing, and the VR730 provides a wide selection for covering all musical styles. Many historic electric piano are on board, including a selection derived from the RD-2000. You can also spice up your EPs with vintage effects like phaser, tremolo, touch wah, and tape delay. The gorgeous acoustic grand piano features 88-note stereo multi-sampling, delivering pro-level tone that rivals Roland’s dedicated stage pianos. The VR730’s easy-access compressor effect works great with the piano sounds, ensuring that your playing always cuts through when performing with loud bands and big ensembles.

SuperNATURAL Synth Sounds from Vintage to Modern

The VR730 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. There are lots of fat, analog-style lead and bass tones to choose from as well, plus organic ‘80s-era synth sounds from Roland’s famous D50. The 200-plus sounds cover a wide range of styles and genres, and are organized into dedicated one-touch categories like Lead, Bass, Pad, Strings, and more for fast access.

Classic Combo Design, Ready for the Stage

The VR730 offers a classic streamlined appearance with real wood side panels, delivering the authentic vibe of a vintage combo organ. The control panel’s matte finish hides fingerprints for a clean and tidy look, and also eliminates harsh reflections from stage lighting that can reduce visibility.

Roland’s Axial site is the official tone library home for downloading new sounds for Roland keyboards. Specially designed by top programmers, “The Cover Band Collection” for the VR730 provides dozens of patches inspired by popular songs, giving you lots of ready-to-play sounds for all types of gigs.

Dedicated iPad Editor for Organs and Synths

The free VR09 Editor app for iPad gives you powerful, intuitive control of the VR730’s organ and synth sound engines via your tablet’s full-color touchscreen interface. Quickly edit organ sounds and customize vintage tone wheel characteristics such as leakage, click noise, and rotary speed, and easily access synth sounds to build custom tones and layers. After tweaking sounds at home, you can take your iPad to the gig and use the app for extra real-time control on stage.
