Roland GR-09 is a guitar synthesizer that comes with various features, such as extremely fast response, familiar foot pedal design, high-quality sounds, and digital effects to sophisticated interfacing.
The GR-09 is designed to sit on the floor, just like a conventional pedal board setup. Because the GR-09 includes the pitch detection circuitry, tone generator and foot switches in one compact package, setup and play is breeze. With the GR-09’s simple set of controls, including two large selection dials, even a novice user can achieve results quickly. Since all the parameters are printed right on the panel, finding what you want is easy.
The GR-09 contains most of the wave data found in the renowned Roland GR-1. It contains 180 different Tones, ranging from acoustic instrument sounds to synthesized sounds.
This unit contains a battery which powers the unit’s memory circuits while the main (AC) power is off. The expected life of this battery is 5 years or more. However, to avoid the untimely loss of memory data, it is strongly recommended that you change the battery every 5 years.
Please be aware that the actual life of the battery will depend upon the physical environment – especially the temperature – in which the unit is used. When it is time to change the battery, consult with qualified service personnel.
Never strike or apply strong pressure to the display. Should a malfunction occur, or if you suspect there is a problem, discontinue use immediately. Contact qualified service personnel as soon as possible. To avoid the risk of electric shock, do not open the unit or its AC adaptor.
