D BEAM Expression

An incredible feature that must be seen to be believed — MUSIC ATELIER organs let you “touch the air” above the keys to control an invisible infrared D BEAM. Waving your hand over the beam allows you to alter the sound. Amaze your audience!

Articulation Voices

With new “Articulation Voice” sound set realized by SuperNATURAL technology onboard, the AT-series breathes unprecedented life into Violin, Trombone, Cello, and Tenor Sax voices. Experience the most subtle and expressive characteristics of these classic instruments, including lifelike vibrato, pizzicato, portamento and other authentic nuances.

Organ Sounds and Beyond

From the sound of stately classical and theater organs of the silent-movie era to up-tempo jazz and rock organs, MUSIC ATELIER provides organ sounds from around the world, letting you play any genre convincingly. You can even layer authentic Orchestral Voices with the organ sounds, creating sounds and textures that were never possible with conventional organs.

Harmonic Bar Enables Intuitive, Expressive Playing

The new physical Harmonic Bars provide authentic, hands-on control for expressive organ playing. Under the control of the Bars is a Virtual Tone Wheel voice engine derived from Roland’s acclaimed VK combo-organ series. Furthermore, an individual solo bar is provided for the onboard Orchestral Voice, allowing organ sounds to be combined with Orchestral Voices for incredible textures.

Touch-Panel Magic

To make operations easy, all models feature a large color touch-panel LCD with a quick-start guide built in. The newly expanded screen enables often-used menu icons to be always shown on the monitor.

Rhythm Section

By playing simple chords on the lower keyboard, the arranger function (Auto Accompaniment) automatically adds accompaniment, letting you play with a virtual backing band of world-class musicians.
