Roland VP-550 Vocal Designer Keyboard

MusicPlayers.com
15 March 2013
  • 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.

"It would be nice with more effects" - JimboSpins

Audiofanzine
9 December 2012
  • Excerpt: This keyboards specs and features make it worth the money. Only thing that I would change if I could would be to add more effects and let the user go way deep into the effects processing to get the effects the exact way that we want them. But we can always do that once it is recorded or tracked out.

  • Excerpt: It is used for about 6 months, found opportunities in the region, and a very reasonable price. A tour de force of Roland, there was a worthy successor to the VP-330! Obtain such choirs with a keyboard is incredible, it's bluffing the public every time with this. Tip damage: no implementation, good I do not care but ...

  • Excerpt: I have been using prs a year and tried a lot of vocoder DIFFERENT, but not high end, it is true. What I like most: ease of use, quality sound what I like least: the mini-breaks on certain consonants only mode vocoder (voice + external instrument)

VP-550

Music Tech Magazine
15 March 2007
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: On l'utilise depuis environ 6 mois, trouvé d'occase dans la région, et à un prix très raisonnable. Un tour de force de Roland, on a là le digne successeur du VP-330 ! Obtenir de tels choeurs avec un clavier c'est incroyable, on bluffe le public à tous les coups avec ça. Truc dommage : pas de transposition, bon moi je m'...

  • Excerpt: Je l'utilise depuis près d'un an et ai essayé pas mal de vocoder différents, mais pas de haut de gamme, il est vrai. Ce que j'aime le plus : la facilité d'utilisation, la qualité des sons ce que j'aime le moins : les mini-coupures sur certaines consonnes en mode vocoder seulement (voix + instrument externe)
