Organ Sounds and Beyond
From the sound of stately classical and theater organs of the silent-movie era to up-tempo jazz and rock organs, MUSIC ATELIER provides organ sounds from around the world, letting you play any genre convincingly. You can even layer authentic Orchestral Voices with the organ sounds, creating sounds and textures that were never possible with conventional organs.
Harmonic Bar Enables Intuitive, Expressive Playing
The new physical Harmonic Bars provide authentic, hands-on control for expressive organ playing. Under the control of the Bars is a Virtual Tone Wheel voice engine derived from Roland’s acclaimed VK combo-organ series. Furthermore, an individual solo bar is provided for the onboard Orchestral Voice, allowing organ sounds to be combined with Orchestral Voices for incredible textures.
With new “Articulation Voice” sound set realized by SuperNATURAL technology onboard, the AT-series breathes unprecedented life into Violin, Trombone, Cello, and Tenor Sax voices. Experience the most subtle and expressive characteristics of these classic instruments, including lifelike vibrato, pizzicato, portamento and other authentic nuances.
Convenience & Realtime Playability
With its simple panel layout, MUSIC ATELIER has been designed with priority given to the real-time needs of playing. Buttons are color coded according to function. Selection of sounds, voice layering and balance changes — its design enables complete freedom of expression, with all settings quickly changeable in real time.
Swing, country, bossa nova — with MUSIC ATELIER you can play along with rhythms from all over the world. The built-in patterns feature the ultra-realistic groove and feel of professional drummers. By playing simple chords on the lower keyboard, the arranger function (Auto Accompaniment) automatically adds accompaniment, letting you play with a virtual backing band of world-class musicians.
To make operations easy, all models feature a large color touch-panel LCD with a quick-start guide built in. The newly expanded screen enables often-used menu icons to be always shown on the monitor.
D BEAM Expression
An incredible feature that must be seen to be believed — MUSIC ATELIER organs let you “touch the air” above the keys to control an invisible infrared D BEAM. Waving your hand over the beam allows you to alter the sound. Amaze your audience!
Instant Storage & Recall
Your favorite voice and rhythm selections, as well as other panel settings, can be instantly recalled from internal memory. In addition, to save and retrieve your precious data externally, simply plug in a USB memory key — the global external-storage standard.
Expand your musical universe by incorporating musical content from around the world. If you connect a USB memory key or USB CD drive, for example, you can play along with audio CDs ormusic stored in other formats. You can even connect devices such as the powerful SA-1000 stage amp, mics, and large screen TVs and displays. Excellent, of course, for playing on your own, but also great for home karaoke and stage performances. Use the supplied remote control to selectsongs and play, return, and stop, or to adjust the tempo and key. Whatever the situation, MUSIC ATELIER is sure to be at the heart of the fun.
