Hello, I have been trying to find a keyboard and oragan so i was at this site: http://www.samedaymusic.com/product--ROLVK8 WHAT DO U ORGAN EXPERTS think of this..do this have the real organ sound and as for the keyboard. Can i get many sounds and can i add modules to this.??? I had gotten use to the 88 keys on my yamaha p120. I have started to grown into the sound of a organ with nice sounds, but i still want a piano too.I wonder do i have to go out and purchase a lesile speaker for this kind of combo organ? Thanks

The VK-8 uses Roland's Virtual Tonewheel Modeling Technology that makes a very accurate "modeled" sound of the tonewheels that were present in the Original Electric Organs....

There should be no need to go buy a Leslie Speaker (Would be nice to have though) the VK-8 has built in Leslie Speaker effects.

Like any Roland keyboard/Piano the VK-8 features a full Midi input and output function. It can be used with external tone modules to add additional sounds. The keyboard is of the waterfall variety...Great feeling for organ with Glissando's being a breeze.

With the addition of a PK25 pedalboard the VK-8 becomes a fully functional instrument that any organist would enjoy.
