Roland C 190
76-key portable classic Organ

euro 1.300 circa

A compact 76-key organ for classical music with a two-manual-cum-pedal mode .
Thanks to its intuitive user interface and organ sounds, the C-190 caters to a large group of customers: from music schools to churches.
It is also an instrument for home musicians who cannot afford a console organ or simply do not have the required space.

76 Keys for Two-Manual Performances
The 76-note keyboard allows players to use as an upper and a lower section by activating the Split function. Another application is the use of the extended range when “Swell to Great” is selected.

New 128-voice Polyphonic Sound Engine
128-voice polyphony and countless newly sampled organ and orchestral waves are at the heart of a sound source that allows for various sound combinations, and dynamic voice assignment for the manual pedal parts.

Combination of Sounds
- Swell-to-Great Emulation
The player can use the entire 76-key range for single-part performances and use a classic organ with Swell-to-great coupler. All sounds the player selects can be layered .

- Simulates Two Manuals
The Great section can be assigned to the left half, and the Swell manual function to the right to simulate a two manual organ. When you add the Bass part, the keys at the far left of the lower section even play the selected bass notes.

- Two Manuals Plus Bass Pedals
By connecting an optional pedalboard like the PK-5A or PK-25, you can turn the C-190 into a full-console organ akin to a real pipe organ in churches.

- Orchestral Sounds for More Variation
In addition to organ sounds, players can play orchestral sounds via each manual and even the pedals.

Sound and Combinations
The C-190 comes with 43 organ sounds based on the Roland/Rodgers wave library, which includes samples of historic church organs from central Europe. 13 of them can be recalled in realtime via the front panel 13 tilt tabs, while the remaining sounds can be assigned to the desired tilt tabs for instant access.

Windchest Panning
The C-190 comes with a unique feature called “Windchest Panning” that recreates the sound field of a church environment by simulating the physical pipe location for each note you play. With this new feature, you can change the setting of the pipe system by pressing a few buttons and then save your favorite stereo image setting.
