This clinic showcased the technology of 3 of Roland's newest keyboards.

The Virtual Piano - V-Piano with "From grand piano classics to never before heard futuristic hybrids." Members were able to hear the difference between for example, a Steinway and Boesendorfer.

The Phantom G-7 workstation keyboard with its "Advanced sound engine with double wave capacity."

The VP-770 Vocal and Ensemble Keyboard which "allows a single musician to create realistic backing parts that range from futuristic electronic vocal textures to incredible emulations of large-scale gospel choirs and beyond." This was demonstrated by a master musician, how even a non-musician DJ can create music. It looked very easy.

Plus an introduction to Cakewake V-Studio with Sonar - recording software. This was made to look easy as well.

All in all, we had a great time!
