The Roland VK-8 Combo Organ puts the enhanced 'VirtualToneWheel' sound of the flagship VK-77 in an attractively priced single-manual design with a cool new 'waterfall' style keyboard. But it doesn't stop there: The VK-8 also sports rotary speaker modelling based on COSM® technology, new other tones and a D-Beam controller-making it the new leader in combo organs.
With two MIDI inputs, you can connect an external MIDI keyboard or an optional PK-7 pedalboard, which allows you to “kick” bass while playing chords and leads. And when paired up with the KC-1000 Stereo Mixing Keyboard Amplifier, you’ll get powerful, rich output—thanks to a 310-watt, 7-speaker system with unique RSS® ambient effects, split-frequency compression and ultra-realistic tone cabinet reverberation.
''The Roland VK-8M Organ Sound Module puts Roland's acclaimed VirtualToneWheelorgan sound in a convenient desktop unit with nine harmonic bars and retro-style wood panels. COSM Amplifier and Rotary Speaker Modelling further complement these authentic sounds, while an audio input and Active Expression feature let players fade in an external tone with a pedal. The VK-8M makes adding distinctive organ sounds to any setup easy.''
