Roland VR-700 Combo Organ
The Roland V-Combo VR-700 combo organ is a multifunction keyboard that covers every base onstage without being a big, bulky rig. The V-Combo offers powerful realtime performance capabilities and a simple user interface. With a legendary Virtual Tone Wheel organ and dedicated harmonic bars onboard, plus a first-class array of essential ensemble sounds (grand piano, EP, strings, brass, synth leads, and more), the V-Combo melds an entire rig into one convenient instrument for easy transport and fast setup. Backing-track functionality, built-in rhythms, great effects, and a comfortable waterfall-style keyboard round out the feature set on the Roland VR-700 organ, making this multifaceted keyboard a godsend for gigging musicians.Virtual Tone Wheel Technology Roland's acclaimed Virtual Wheel technology is central to the V-Combo organ, complete with four-wheel types, nine dedicated harmonic bars, percussion settings, a rotary-speaker simulator, and amp simulators that reproduce the characteristics of speaker cabinets and tube circuits. With five amp types onboard, and with adjustable gain, you can transform the tone on your Roland organ from warm and smooth to full-impact overdrive.Expressive Organ Performance The 76-note, velocity-sensitive waterfall keyboard provides fast action and comfort—great for glissando and quick, repetitive strokes. The dedicated harmonic bars let you modify the organ sound naturally in real time, while the D Beam can be used for wheel brakes, ring modulation, spring shock, pitch, filter, and volume.

The Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Keyboard is an affordable, full-featured mono synth with a 100% analog audio path. The Mopho Keyboard offers 32 full-sized, semi-weighted keys with velocity and aftertouch in a package about the same size as most 25-note controller keyboards.

In addition, it also includes an arpeggiator, a gated 16 x 4 step sequencer (with 1 sequence per program), feedback, the ability to process external audio, and an extensive modulation matrix. Hit the Tap Tempo button to beat match or sync the arpeggiator, sequencer, and match LFOs to MIDI clock.You can integrate and automate the Mopho Keyboard with your computer and other hardware using standard MIDI jacks or with a direct USB connection. The eagle-eyed musician may find it odd that a monophonic synth has a unison on/off parameter, but when paired with a Dave Smith Instruments' Tetra (sold separately), the Mopho Keyboard makes an incredibly compact, extremely powerful 5-voice poly synth. So for a ridiculously compact analog poly synth, use the Poly Chain output along with the Dave Smith Instruments' Tetra (sold separately) to expand the Dave Smith Mopho Keyboard's polyphony.
