Why We Love This Product!

Synthaxeification!

The Roland VG-99 guitar modeling synth builds on the legacy of the VG-8, allowing your guitar to play at an entirely new level. The VG-99 has three intense new processors at its core, plus expressive performance controls such as Ribbon Controller and D BEAM. Flexible digital and analog out options allow for simple implementation for stage and studio jobs, and highlights such as an built-in guitar-to-MIDI converter and on-screen editor let you take your 6-string capabilities to new heights with the Roland VG-99.

Roland VG-99 at a Glance:
    • Simple alternate tunings
    • Control switching between virtual guitars and/or amps by foot controllers, buttons/knobs, or your picking dynamics
    • Wide range of COSM-modeled guitars and amplifiers
    • Designed for really simple control onstage
    • Guitar-to-MIDI converter and other user-requested features

Multi Modeling
The VG-99 contains an incredible range of COSM-modeled guitars and amps including new electric, acoustic and bass guitar models, a new GR-300 synth wave, and much more. It even models two signal paths at once. Complete dual processing of guitar modeling on the VG-99 lets you play two different guitar sounds at once. For example, one virtual guitar could be a Telecaster in a classic Tweed amp with full effects and the other a nylon-string guitar with just a hint of reverb.

Dynamic Control
Both modeled guitar and amp paths can be active at the same time, or they can be dynamically switched or blended. You can control the switching behavior between virtual guitars and/or amps by foot controllers, buttons/knobs on the unit, or according to your picking dynamics. Imagine, for example, playing softly for an acoustic-guitar sound, and transitioning to a full metal blast simply by picking more aggressively. Furthermore, each modeled guitar can be separately assigned to individual guitar-strings. For example, you could have a 12-string guitar on 1st to 4th string and Synth-bass for 5th and 6th.

Alternate Tunings
The VG-99 can produce custom tunings - anything the player desires on any virtual guitar. A virtual Les Paul, for example, could be tuned down four or five steps for a heavy sound, while a nylon string could be tuned as a 12-string, and also tuned down four or five steps at the same time. Open and drop tunings are also supported plus user defined custom tunings and can be applied to any COSM guitar, so the player can switch instantly between tuning setups without physically switching guitars or having to manually retune.

Guitar Performance in Higher Dimension
With its new performance based design, the VG-99 can be placed within a player's simple reach on stage by using an optional PDS-10 stand. This new style setup allows various new performance possibilities such as D BEAM, Ribbon Controller and more. In combination with the versatile new foot controller FC-300, the VG-99 takes your guitar performance onstage to a whole new dimension.

Most Wanted
You asked for it, now Roland delivers the most-requested new features in the VG-99, including an built-in guitar-to-MIDI converter for direct connection to keyboards, sound modules, soft synths, etc. Audio out via USB or S/PDIF digital out, and optional RAD-99 rackmount adapter further enhance your music production environment. Made in stereo XLR and 1/4" outputs are ideal for live stage performances and touring. The striking new on-screen editor makes programming the VG-99 super really simple and fun.

Earl, you're an inspiration to everyone who says they never win anything! (Except the Crew here at GearNuts, because we're not ALLOWED to win any of our contests. Sigh.)
