  • Acclaimed Virtual Tone Wheel organ sound
  • Improved and expanded Pipe Organ voices
  • Expressive, organic SuperNATURAL sounds
  • Improved Arranger engine
  • BMP File Export function with music score support

You can read all about its new features below, but we don’t yet know detailed specifications for the instrument.

Rich, Walnut Cabinet

The AT-900 Platinum Edition is housed in a beautiful, hand-crafted wooden cabinet with walnut finish. The new contoured shape, taller side panels, rounded toe blocks, and wider music stand make the instrument as beautiful visually as it is musically.

Acclaimed Virtual Tone Wheel Sounds Built in

One of Roland’s core technologies — Virtual Tone Wheel made famous in the VK series — is onboard the AT-900 Platinum Edition. You can customize organ sounds by adjusting parameters such as Key Click, Leakage, Rotary Acceleration, and more. This feature is exclusively available in the AT-900 Platinum Edition. Create the perfect settings for jazz, rock, gospel, and beyond.

Authentic Pipe Organ Sounds Added

Authentic pipe organ voices from Roland’s Classic Series organs are also onboard, and instantly selectable from the Quick Registration settings. Play great songs such as “Toccata and Fuga” and other classic Baroque pieces. In addition, a 350-song hymn library is onboard for enjoying classical and worship music at home.

New SuperNATURAL Sounds Onboard

A lineup of Roland’s acclaimed SuperNATURAL sounds is onboard the AT-900 Platinum Edition — 35 tones to choose from. Experience a new level of realism and emotion with these incredibly expressive acoustic-instrument and ensemble sounds. Access the SuperNATURAL sounds in the Upper, Lower, or Pedal sections (up to four parts at time). They provide unsurpassed realism in all music genres.

Enhanced Arranger Engine

The built-in Arranger engine has been enhanced with new auto-accompaniment patterns and musical content. Rhythm-set sounds from Roland’s famous V-Drums are onboard, plus improved orchestration voicing and expanded Music Styles to cover a wider range of genres. Play your favorite songs with a pro-quality backing band onboard.

BMP File Export for Organ Arrangement Score

This convenient feature for organ lessons lets you export your organ performance as an arrangement score (BMP image) via USB drive. Simply record your original performance with the built-in recorder and you can view and print your original organ score with an external computer and printer.
