Roland’s unrivaled accordion tone generator gives you incredibly realistic expression
No one does digital accordions like Roland. Inside the FR-1x is Roland’s most advanced V-Accordion technology to date, giving you the kind of bellows response and realistic sound nuances you’d never expect outside of an acoustic accordion. When you play a Roland FR-1x, the only thing you’re missing from the real accordion playing experience is the backache.
Diverse sound library lets you play with more than just great accordion sounds
Beyond its 14 amazing accordion sound sets (each with its own selection of bass and treble tones) the Roland FR-1x lets you use the versatile dynamics of the accordion to play a wide range of other instrument sounds. Choose from a huge selection of organs, woodwinds, brass instruments, and more – all rendered in exquisite detail. In addition to its onboard sounds, the FR-1x lets you connect to your computer or keyboard via MIDI, giving you access to limitless additional sounds.
The accordion to have when you’re on the go
Lugging around an acoustic accordion can be a real pain, but the FR-1x’s lightweight design isn’t the only thing that makes it a wonderfully portable instrument. When you simply want to play along with your favorite tunes, the FR-1x’s onboard USB thumb drive MP3/WAV file player is an excellent convenience to have. Roland also gave the FR-1x a built-in headphone jack – perfect when you want to practice in the middle of the night. There’s even an onboard speaker, so you never have to hunt for a PA when you want to play.
