Roland VK8.
Organ digital drawbars.
Specifications for I will not go into the wholesale details:
9 drawbars
Touch waterfall
Digital Leslie
4 amp simulations
4 Reverb
Chorus / Vibrato
Percussion complte
Leackage and simulation of 3 types of tonewheels
DBEAM / others tones

Connection complte:
Phone / line out jacks stro size
11-pin socket for external leslie.
Jack for second keyboard / crankset / expression pedal.

Walnut coating, color keyboard "cream".

The look is flavou appearance between the vintage and modern.
I note the cow Because at that price they could 1500/1800 euros imprativement include flycase Roland especially as this type of keyboard is especially apprci for stage and avoid carrying around a Hammond right left, so damage, instead it has a nice cardboard box basic, but good as beautiful guitars are sold in tui, keyboards have missed the boat!


Good for use while we facade and all the knobs are progressive and easy to understand, but all functions are paramtrables and we tend to open the manual:

Internal equalizer
Length of the reverb
Volume of percussion and key click
Leslie entirely wrong paramtrable / rotor / acceleration speeds dsacclration ...
Assigning a pedal controls the expression etc.

Possibility to memorize 64 prrgles sounds.
Still other functions in stock which I will not dwell ...


The keyboard although everything digital is excellent:
The amp models are particularly well Russias and the knob of Tone trsractif.
The overdrive is trsralistes.
The waterfall touch is very pleasant, although the organ was in hand.
Reverb and Chorus Vibrato more than correct, impeccable percussion, short keyboard is very good!
Many possibilities of possible atmospheres ... it has a character quite rock / hard rock but we can make do.

The only weak point is the leslie, nothing can replace a real cabin, but it is still good drinking in u mix quickly what!


I use it since 2006 and I am very satisfied, I find it very effective and complete, I plan to buy a real leslie cab for a more realistic.
