76 Keys for Two-Manual Performances

The 76-note keyboard allows players to use as an upper and a lower section by activating the Split function. Another application is the use of the extended range for gorgeous layer sounds when “Swell to Great” is selected.

New 128-voice Polyphonic Sound Engine

128-voice polyphony and countless newly sampled organ and orchestral waves are at the heart of a flexible sound source that allows for various sound combinations. Thanks to a dynamic voice assignment for the manual pedal parts, the C-190 goes way beyond the feature set of other instruments in its class.

Flexible Combination of Sounds

- Swell-to-Great Emulation
The player can use the entire 76-key range for single-part performances and use a classic organ with Swell-to-great coupler. All sounds the player selects can be layered for a lush stack.

- Simulates Two Manuals
The Great section can be assigned to the left half, and the Swell manual function to the right to simulate a two manual organ. When you add the Bass part, the keys at the far left of the lower section even play the selected bass notes.

- Two Manuals Plus Bass Pedals
By connecting an optional pedalboard like the PK-5A or PK-25, you can turn the C-190 into a full-console organ akin to a real pipe organ in churches.

- Orchestral Sounds for More Variation
In addition to high-quality organ sounds, players can play suitable orchestral sounds via each manual and even the pedals. The result is amazingly real and reach.

High-Quality Sound and Unlimited Combinations

The C-190 comes with 43 carefully selected organ sounds based on the Roland/Rodgers wave library, which includes samples of historic church organs from central Europe. 13 of them can be recalled in realtime via the front panel 13 tilt tabs, while the remaining sounds can be assigned to the desired tilt tabs for instant access. The 14 orchestral sounds can be selected via several useful songs for a variety of worship applications

Unique Windchest Panning

The C-190 comes with a unique feature called “Windchest Panning” that recreates the sound field of a church environment by simulating the physical pipe location for each note you play. With this new feature, you can change the setting of the pipe system by pressing a few buttons and then save your favorite stereo image setting.
