The Ultimate Compact Classic

A treasure trove of classical organs and instruments in a compact cabinet, the new C-230 is an elegant addition to any home, church, or music venue. An instantly selectable library of instruments is onboard, including coveted classical organ and bass tones, harpsichords, fortepiano, celesta, and more. The internal amplification system provides high-quality output, with two satellite speakers and RSS ambience technology for immersive, rich sound.

Coveted, Classic Sounds

The C-230 contains a treasury of sound from some of the world’s most coveted and rare classical instruments from the Rodgers/Roland library. Included in the built-in sound bank is a world’s first — the original fortepiano, which was meticulously analyzed and digitally captured by Roland’s master sound-design team. Also onboard the C-230: 36 classical organ tones, plus eight organ bass tones, four harpsichord tones, 2 fortepiano, celesta, and more.

Amazing Ambience

The C-230 is equipped with a 4-channel digital amplifier and a patented RSS ambience engine for a rich, spatial sound. The detachable satellite speakers can be placed on the backside using the provided installation kit or separately installed from the instrument by using the provided cable (i.e. on a nearby wall or shelf). Combined with RSS technology, the satellites project a deep spatial image, as if actual organ pipes are surrounding the room.

Easy Operation

The C-230 has been refined to make sound selection and tone customizing fast and easy. Dedicated switches are provided for Pitch and Temperament, with accompanying LEDs for easy selection even under dim lighting. There are also dedicated front-panel switches for quickly jumping the 8 Organ Basses and 36 Classic Organ tones onboard, plus Tone switches for quickly jumping from instrument to instrument in the sound bank.

Portability

Beautiful and elegant, the C-230 is also portable and easy to move — great for traveling musicians, music schools, and churches. Simply unplug and carry the C-230 from room to room, venue to venue.

Private Practice

The C-230 can be connected to an external amplifier or PA system for high-volume performances or used with headphones for private practice. Music students will appreciate the ability to play day or night without disturbing their surrounding environment.
