The baroque was the period in which J. S. Bach, the father of music, wrote his many masterpieces. This was also when organ culture blossomed. Many types of organs were developed during this period ¢ from positive organs, with small bodies and elegant tones, to pipe organs that filled large cathedrals with colossal sound. The music of the era had a miraculous beauty, and Roland’s vision was to bring these rich organ tones closer to our modern lives. Based on this vision, Roland proudly presents its classical organ C-330.
Enjoy larger-than-life performance in a compact instrument
The C-330 delivers grand, magnificent sound that defies its compact size. Its body is only 53.7cm deep (91cm deep including pedalboard). It features a dual-manual keyboard with 61 keys each plus 30 footpedals in a parallel-concave configuration. With a wide variety of high-quality organ tones, the C-330 sets the bar high for sound and performance. Experience pipe-organ power and performance whenever inspiration strikes.
Keyboard touch is true to real pipe organ
The keyboard faithfully reproduces the key touch of tracker-actions that are widely used in pipe organs. Capable of conveying the subtlest nuances created by differences in touch, the keyboard perfectly responds to the performers? emotions and sensitivities. The keyboard even reproduces the resistance from air pressure that occurs immediately before the pallet opens when a key is pressed, as well as the releasing sensation when it opens.
What is a tracker-action?
It is a type of keyboard action that was developed in the Baroque period. This mechanism makes use of the principle of leverage, pulling a thin wooden rod (tracker) when a key is pressed down,thereby opening the pallet (valve) to send air into the pipe. This action has been popular among organists for its quick response, and is currently the primary type of action in organ keyboards.
The ultimate organ sound – delicate and expressive
At the heart of C-330 is Roland’s newly developed sound module that 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. Creates natural and real tones. Enables phrasings that have been difficult to reproduce in the past, such as variations in how attack and decay respond to subtle differences in touch. Dramatically more expressive.
Includes a variety of organ tones from different periods and countries
Pipe organs are known by different names and have different styles of pipes depending on their period and region. A variety of organ pieces have been written for these specific styles. The organ tones onboard the C-330 each come with four variations (Voice Pallets) covering a wide range of styles and tastes. Enjoy on a variety of different organs ranging from Baroque organs of the 17th and 18th centuries, on which Bach wrote his masterpieces, to large romantic organs that were used in concerts in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Bring the sound of the Cathedrals to your living room with Roland’s proprietary RSS ambience system
The rich, full tone of pipe organs is created by sounds reverberating inside a building. Such tone is generated by a powerful musical instrument, of which the room itself is a part. This is what Roland’s RSS* ambience system reproduces. Users simply define the location, or parameters such as wall material, to create the realistic reverberations of a cathedral, stone church, or concert hall.
