    Features

    The Soul of the Popular VK-8
    Since its introduction, Roland's VK-8 Combo Organ has made quite an impact with die-hard organ fans - praised for its natural and authentic sound. Now Roland makes these Virtual ToneWheel organ sounds available to any musician with the desktop VK-8M. With its new COSM Amp Modelling, nine harmonic bars and simple knob-based controls, the VK-8M delivers outstanding organ sounds with easy front-panel editing. Players can also dive into more detailed sound parameters like leakage level and rotary woofer speed.

    Onboard COSM Amp Modelling
    The VK-8M's amazing organ sounds are further improved with COSM Amp Modelling. Four different amp types are available for creating everything from clean gospel organs to the gritty overdriven sounds of a rock organ. The newly developed COSM Amp Type IV stands out in particular for its killer gain and crunchy distortion effect. The VK-8M takes organ modelling to a whole new level of realism, with intuitive editing of every parameter.

    Unique Active Expression Feature
    Performers will appreciate the VK-8M's Line input and Active Expression feature. Using an optional EV-7 Expression Pedal, players can gradually fade in a sound from an external source, such as a synthesizer or MIDI module. By slowly fading in a pad sound, for example, players can bring out a section of a song, or create energy by fading in a sharper tone like brass. These features open up an entirely new level of expression.

    An Exceptional Performer
    With its D Beam Controller, the VK-8M offers performers a world of expression. Using an infrared beam of light with an LED that changes colour as your hand changes distance, players can control such functions as rotary speed (Slow/Fast) or tone wheel motor stops. And with 36 memory locations, you can store custom settings with a simple one-touch procedure and recall your sounds using the Bank Select and six Registration buttons.
