Roland Announces C-200 Classic Organ

Roland is proud to announce the C-200 Classic Organ, a new addition to the Roland Classic instrument family. Designed for trained classical musicians, students, and anyone who loves keyboards from the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the Roland Classic series is inspired by the instruments used to create the masterworks of classical music by history’s finest composers.

The successor to the popular C-190, the C-200 is for traditional organists who want great sounds and features in a portable instrument. It’s equipped with authentic classical organ sounds and orchestral voices, plus Harpsichord, Fortepiano, Piano, and Celesta sounds for accompaniment in Baroque ensembles. The user interface is extremely simple and intuitive, with dedicated buttons for sound selection and choosing among four Baroque pitches and five different temperaments.

The C-200 features a 76-note virtual dual-manual keyboard with individually defined upper and lower sections, allowing users to achieve true dual-manual performance from a compact instrument. It also provides a wide key range for playing piano sounds. Support for an optional PK-series pedalboard (PK-5A, PK-7A, or PK-25A) is included as well.

Superb sound is provided with the built-in stereo speaker system, and pleasant ambience effects emulate the rich sound experience of playing in a large hall or cathedral. Also onboard is an easy-to-use recorder for music practice.

With its compact design and traditional sounds, the C-200 is perfect for gigging classical musicians and students alike. It’s also well-suited for use with choirs and gospel groups, and makes a great portable instrument for church use in chapels and cathedrals.
