    Product Description

    While many purists will believe that the only type of accordion is the traditional kind, however once you see the benefits of what a digital accordion can bring, you may be won over! The FR-4XB  is a light and compact V-Accordion with responsive pressure-sensing bellows and full-range on board speakers that will make the instrument feel like your trusty acoustic accordion.

    This accordion has a top of the range selection of accordion sounds from around the world which you can play through the on board speakers, listen silently over headphones or plug into a PA for live performance. Control other electronic musical instruments via the MIDI connector, or record your playing to a connected USB stick and share your music with the world. While its sounds and playing feel are reassuringly traditional, the Roland FR-4xb is an accordion for the modern age.

    Here's what Roland say about the FR4x:

    Play in Any Style with Customizable Onboard Tones

    A traditional acoustic accordion offers just one dedicated sound. With its powerful sound engine carried over from the flagship FR-8xb, the new FR-4xb puts an entire orchestra in your hands, with a wide range of onboard sounds to support any musical style. Maybe you’ll dabble in 100 preset accordion sets, switching between French musette and Russian bajan in the same song. Or perhaps you’ll investigate 162 orchestral sounds derived from Roland’s latest keyboards, transforming your accordion into an organ, string quartet, or bass guitar.

    You could add chorus, reverb, and rotary effects, or accompany your melody lines with the onboard drum sounds. And factoring in the fast, easy sound customization process—plus additional sound libraries available from the official Roland website—the FR-4xb is a truly open-ended instrument with immense creative potential. 

    The Digital Accordion That Honours Tradition

    If you play a traditional accordion, you won’t want to compromise on the expressive feel and portable format. You don’t have to with the Roland FR-4xb, which plays like a great acoustic accordion and travels light. The intuitive layout of 92 right-hand and 120 left-hand buttons feels instantly familiar, while the pressure-sensing bellows circuitry lets you tailor the inertia to your preference. This new digital accordion might feature lots of onboard technology, but its light and compact design—plus the option of powering from an AC adaptor or AA batteries—make it a great choice for players on the move.

    Flexible Outputs for a Variety of Music-Making Scenarios

    Practice. Rehearsal. Studio. Stage. The Roland FR-4xb has the flexibility to support you wherever you’re making music. The headphones jack lets you practice at home without disturbing the neighbors, and when you’re on the go, a powerful onboard audio system with two speakers and a tweeter supplies big, full-range sound. Ambitious music makers can even connect with external MIDI devices like the Roland BK-7m Backing Module for controllable accompaniment. Gigging accordion players will appreciate that the FR-4xb is fully stage-ready, providing a direct connection to a venue’s PA system via the Line Out and sparing the headaches of trying to mic up a traditional accordion.

    Jam with Your Favourite Songs, or Record Your Own

    The USB memory port is your pathway to some of the Roland FR-4xb’s most useful features. By inserting a USB stick preloaded with your favorite songs or your band’s latest material, you can jam along with the music as it plays back and perfect your parts at your convenience. If you want to get creative, the FR-4xb also features a handy onboard recorder; simply record a new part, save it to a USB stick, and then transfer your creation to a computer and share it with the world. USB export also allows you to safely archive your customized sound settings.

    I already had a FR4x and when I was looking for a 5 row accordion I thought it a good idea to go for the FR4XB as I knew the setup etc Glad I did.
