When we first heard Roland’s VR-09 at the 2013 Winter NAMM, we were quite impressed with its sound. Designed to be a live performance keyboard that includes all the meat and potatoes for nearly any gig situation, the VR-09 does quite a good job at delivering the goods.
this keyboard right here is just about all you will need. I'm am a motif fan but this VR-09 has been my baby now..(not taking all away from the mo) but it's easy to use, the setup is simple, the sounds are great. Ex. I can take a finger bass and change it up to been like a lead...awesome!!!
This is my third Roland instrument purchase. The VR-09 exceeds my expectations largely because of its organ. The depth of its sound extends from brand new organ to an aged model with all the nuances of clicks belt wear on the Leslie speaker!
I bought the Roland VR-09 to replace a Korg triton 88 and a Korg CX-3. Total weight about 150lbs... Wow, I have more useful sounds available with the Roland, @12 lbs. My back thanks you!!
I got this board to fulfill a few different roles in the cover band and original band I play with, and it does the job admirably. Nitpicks: There are some minor nitpicks of mine that detract from a 5 star rating, but objectively, it's a great board that I wouldn't hesitate recommending.
I needed a light weight portable keyboard with versatile organ sounds (in addition to all the other piano and synth sounds) and was on a budget of $1000. Viola, there's the VR-09 which fit all my needs (and then some) perfectly.
I orderd the VR 09 last year from Sweetwater. Everything arrived in excellent condition, thanks Alan Carter. I have learned to love this keyboard. The keys are a little bit shorter than the keys on my other keyboards, that took just a little getting used to, but for organ work it's excellent.
I link my Vr 09 up with a studiologic 73 note acuna weighted keyboard (Controller) playing the second of the split sounds ,mostly piano and this leaves the Vr09 used for bass or organ.
Half star removed for build quality. The chassis feels fine despite the light weight, but the buttons and especially the drawbar faders are fairly wiggly. The knobs wiggle but less so. It would have been nice if they could have been chassis mounted instead of PCB mounted.
Love the VR09. Purchased strictly for home use. We have made a nice and sturdy black wood stand with a music holder. Hope to spend many hours getting acquainted with it. Harold Sublett, Hohenwald, Tn.
I would echo what everyone else here has said. It's a great live board and super light. The B3 organ & Leslie section is stellar. My only critique is that I wish the acoustic piano sounds were a little better. They're not terrible, but a little harmonically stale.
