V-Accordions have revolutionized the music world, and Roland has dedicated itself to the ongoing development of these amazing instruments. The FR-1x series is the newest addition to the famous V-Accordion family. These compact, lightweight models offer the same flexibility and portability as their popular FR-1 predecessors, but add significant features, including USB functionality and advanced bellows-pressure circuitry for enhanced sensitivity and precision. With new-generation speakers onboard and an expanded 7-segment/3-character display, the FR-1x piano-type and FR-1xb button-type set a powerful standard for a small lightweight accordion.

Perfect for Students and Pros

Light and small, the FR-1x is perfect for young players, music studios, and schools. They are the most compact of all V-Accordions, but cut no corners in sound quality. It's also a perfect instrument for the professional accordionist and live performer. The FR-1x's battery power and onboard speakers make it ideal for the strolling accordionist. The FR-1x is great instrument for musicians who perform musical styles such as folk, rock, roots-rock, blues, zydeco, and more.

Play Anytime, Anywhere

Enjoy instant, high-quality sound from the onboard speakers or play privately with ear buds or headphones (sold separately). The FR-1x is also the perfect instrument to travel with. Because of its compact size, it fits in the overhead storage compartment on most commercial airplanes.

Advanced Musical Expression

With the FR-1x series, you can access over a dozen different accordion sounds instantly. There are even orchestral instruments onboard, as well as virtual tone wheel organs with realistic rotary effects. The FR-1x also includes onboard manual drum/percussion sounds that can be played with the bass and chord buttons!

USB memory port and USB Computer port on board

The USB memory port allows you to easily store data such as User Program, and to upload new sounds, thanks to the USB Flash Memory. Moreover you can manage MP3 and Wave files using the optional USB Flash Memory. Their playback is a good educational application and can enhance live performances too. The USB computer port is dedicated to MIDI computer applications, such as sequencer software programs.

Faster response and higher sensitivity

Thanks to Roland's sound generator that is optimized for Accordion performance, the FR-1x will satisfy even the most demanding accordion player. Thanks to this new technology accordionists can feel perfectly at ease when playing their music especially once they have experienced the enhanced response of this instrument.

Set Editor software

A dedicated software program allows you to create a dedicated User Set for the FR-1x with access to all Orchestra, Orchestra Bass and Orchestra Chord sounds. It will be available on the Roland Web site as a free download. Thanks to the USB port, it will be easy to load user sets into the FR-1x.

Roland FR 1xb (black) Virtual Knopf Akkordeon
Es handelt um ein Virtual Akkordeon mit verschiedene Möglichkeit.
Man sollte sich ein bisschen anpassen an die verschiedene Sound.
Ich brauche als üben Instrument zu Hause, es lauft mit Strom und Batterie.
Man kann Oktave in Tief und Hoch Lager ändern, und auch Komplet transponiere. Für diese Price sehr gut. 62 musikalische Taste und 80 Bass.
Wie gesagt Man sollte auf andere melodische Sound anpassen.
Negativ : ohne Strom und Batterie das Instrument ist unbrauchbar.
Schade !!

sehr praktisch, da lautloses Üben zuhause möglich
Das Akkordeon ist gut geeignet zum Üben. Das Spielgefühl ist aber nicht identisch mit einem akustischen Instrument, es spricht anders an. Man muss sich einfach auf eine entsprechende Spielweise einstellen.
