Roland Announces C-380 Organ

Roland is proud to introduce the new C-380 Classic Organ, featuring an authentic, reverberant organ sound and outstanding playability. With two 61-note manual keyboards with tracker action, and a 30-note concave pedalboard, the C-380 gives organists the experience of playing a real pipe organ, while still being compact, lightweight, and space-saving.

Equipped with high quality sounds from the Rodgers and Roland digital organ repertoire, each speaking stop of the C-380 controls three alternative voices (Voice Palettes). A wide range of taste and styles are covered, from the Baroque era to the large romantic organs of the 19th and 20th Centuries. The C-380 contains USER Coupler functions, which combine sounds from a palette of organ and orchestral instruments with the C-380’s own stops. This allows players to create hundreds of different sound combinations and then store them on the organ’s memory pistons.

The C-380 includes Roland Sound Space ambience technology, enabling organists to choose a virtual room size, wall type, and reverb depth to create the authentic acoustic space of a cathedral, church, or concert hall. Also included are two satellite speakers which, when installed on a wall or ceiling, create the natural soundscape of a real pipe organ.

Organists can also practice on the C-380 by playing along with preset songs that are built into the organ, or with a pre-recorded performance. Also, Divisions (MAN I/MAN II/ Pedal) can be muted or played back with softer volume. And with the headphone output and built-in metronome, players can practice any time, day or night.

The cabinet is finished in luxurious dark oak, includes a roll top, and is designed to be lightweight and compact. As a result, it can be used in a wide variety of locations, from churches and theatres to homes.
