Roland Announces C-330eDA Classic Organ

Roland is pleased to announce the C-330e-DA Classic Organ, a version of the acclaimed C-330 in a handsome dark oak finish. Along with the original light oak C-330, the C-330e-DA offers players a compact yet feature-rich instrument with dual manual keyboards, an integrated pedal board, and authentic pipe organ sound, touch, and spatial ambience.  Not only is it a classical organ but it also has some of the superb Rodgers/Roland theatre organ sounds built-in.

The C-330 and C-330e-DA are dream instruments for hobbyists, students, and serious performers, providing cathedral-size sound without requiring a cathedral-size space. With a compact design measuring just 50 inches wide and 36 inches deep including the pedal board, these organs are easy to accommodate.

High-quality sounds from the Rodgers and Roland digital organ library offer a wide range of taste and styles, from the Baroque era to the large romantic organs of the 19th and 20th centuries. At the heart of C-330e-DA is Roland’s newly developed sound module which faithfully reproduces the elements that make up the tone of acoustic pipes, including air pressure sent from the wind chest, slight variations in pitch that create full-bodied harmonies, and undulations produced by pipes as they generate sound. Natural tones are created, and phrasings that were difficult to reproduce in the past are now possible, such as variations in how attack and decay respond to subtle differences in touch.

The C-330e-DA is equipped with a new dual-manual tracker-action keyboard (61 keys on each manual), as well as a parallel concave pedal board with 30 pedals. The keyboard and pedals complement perfectly the organ’s beautiful sound, providing genuine pipe organ feel with a smooth, responsive, and quiet action.

A four-channel digital amplifier and Roland Sound Space ambience technology lets  organists choose a virtual room size, wall type, and reverb depth to create the authentic acoustic space of a cathedral, church, or concert hall. Also included with the C-330e-DA are two satellite speakers which, when installed on a wall or ceiling, create the natural soundscape of a real pipe organ.
