      Roland FR-1xb V-Accordion (Button Style) (H81222)
Availability:  


Compact, lightweight button-style virtual accordion packed with features.

The FR-1xb is the newest addition to the Roland's famous V-Accordion family which have helped revolutionize the accordion world. This compact, lightweight model offers the same flexibility and portability as its popular FR-1 predecessors, but adds 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-1xb button-type accordion sets a powerful standard for a small, lightweight accordion.

Perfect for Students and Pros
Light and small, the FR-1xb is perfect for young players, music studios, and schools. It is the most compact of all V-Accordions, but cuts no corners in sound quality. It’s also a perfect instrument for the professional accordionist and live performer. The FR-1xb’s battery power and onboard speakers make it ideal for the strolling accordionist. The FR-1xb is a 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-1xb 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-1xb, 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-1xb 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 WAV 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 the optimized Roland sound generator for accordion performance, the FR-1xb 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-1xb with access to all Orchestra, Orchestra Bass and Orchestra Chord sounds. It is available on the Roland website as a free download. Thanks to the USB port, it's easy to load user sets into the FR-1xb.
