Excerpt: A keyboard that sings? Well, not exactly, but almost. Roland’s new VP-550 Vocal Designer Keyboard is an intriguing entry into the pro-level keyboard world that focuses on one thing: the human voice. And not just any human voice. Your voice.
Excerpt: Roland has been busy updating some of its classic synths over the last year. The SH-201 and Juno-G proved to be worthy successors to their predecessors, and now the VP-330, released way back in 1979, is to get a similar overhaul. In truth, the new VP-550 is a complete redesign that utilises far more complex technology, but the link with a classic model helps to maintain a sense of continuity.
