Dedicated 3-band EQ for each Keyboard Parts

The G-70 V3 provides a 3-band Equalizer for each Keyboard Parts.
It can be used to refine the sound image by avoiding unpleasant overlaps in certain frequency ranges. In other words: the Equalizer is mainly used to give the right frequencies to each single instruments granting a better sound result.

All the 299 Styles refined!

All the 299 internal Styles have been carefully re-mastered in a recording studio using the 3-band Equalizers for an unlimited number of instruments (including each single drum elements).
In this way the Roland staff managed to set the right frequencies to all the instruments granting clean arrangements. Moreover the volume of each instrument (included in each styles) have been well balanced getting homogeneity in the styles themselves.

New One Touch setting structure

The G-70 V3’s One Touch memories are actually a kind of User Programs included in each Style. Thanks to the new setting structure they can manage the parameters of Individual EQ for keyboard parts and MFX type.

Other functions coming from G-70 Version 2

The Guitar Mode

The G-70 V3, like the G-70 Version 2 is provided with the new Guitar Mode. This cutting-edge function provides several down- and up-stroke patterns, realistic muting and other guitar techniques, all controllable from the G-70 V3 keyboard.

Expansion sounds in Styles and Songs

The G-70 V3 at last allows you to assign any Tone or Drum Set of an installed expansion board (option) to Song and Style tracks. It even provides an Auto Sync function for perfect tempo matching of any loop or phrase you select from that board.

Style Converter

Turn any Standard MIDI File into a fully functional Music Style!
The G-70 V3 Style Converter is an easy and intuitive tool for creating your own Music Styles based on one of your own Songs or a Standard MIDI File created by someone else.

Vocal Harmonist Midi Control (16-Track Sequencer)

Several new functions have been added to the 16-Track Sequencer environment, the most important being the possibility to record Vocal Harmonist data.
The Vocal Harmonist has become MIDI-savvy and so can be controlled from an external device if you need the keyboard for other things.

Make Up Tool Freeze Function

It allows you to save your Song and Style changes for universal SMF compatibility, and more flexible Song and Style editing.

Melody Intelligence

This function has become more flexible: selecting a Harmony Type also means that the G-70 V3 automatically assigns a suitable sound to the Melody Intelligent part (e.g. a trumpet and sax sounds for Big Band, etc.)
By default, the G-70 V3 automatically loads the Melody Intelligent type that is suited for the Styles you select.
