VP-9000 is a powerful rackmount audio processor employing proprietary VariPhrase technology which allows an elastic audio processing, realtime sync of samples with different keys and tempo, while formant processing eliminates tedious multi-sampling. It can be used to instantly match loops to the same key and tempo, to add realistic harmonies to a solo vocal performance, to bend notes in real time without changing the phrase length and much more. The audio can be processed through an independent studio-quality reverb, chorus, and multi-effects processor with 40 types.

VP-9000 is intended to be placed in a rack and has 2U height. It has three knobs for realtime control over pitch, time, formant and groove, large icon-based graphic LCD for high-level wave editing and simplified operation.

The maximum sample size can achieve 8MB, this is also the amount of its standard memory while shipping which can be expanded to 136MB using optional SIMMs. The sampler is compatible with VP-9000/Roland S-700/Akai S1000/AIFF/.WAV format files.

The device has Internal Zip250 drive for storing samples and transferring files to a Mac or PC, two SCSI ports for connecting hard drives, Zip drives, and CD-ROMs

This rackmount processor has wide connectivity options - six analog outputs plus digital I/O in coaxial and optical formats, 6.35 headphones front output and additional stereo 6.35 front input. Of course, MIDI IN/ OUT/ THRU.

V-Producer software combines the reliability of the VP-9000 hardware with the convenience of your personal computer. It is possible to control everything from encoding and wave editing to building arrangements, mixing and effects using a computer screen and mouse. A single copy of V-Producer can be used to control up to six VP-9000’s allowing to create a complete VariPhrase workstation with up to 36 audio tracks (36 voices or 36 multitimbral parts) and bring it all together under one instance of software.

The star companions for this brilliant vocal processor are the XV-5080 rackmount sound module and the V-Synth, both from the same golden era of Roland's digital audio synthesis.
