    ENGLISHENGLISH

    Thank you for purchasing the Roland FR-7b/FR-5b V-Accordion. The FR-7b/FR-5b is an amazingly versatile electronic instrument that can emulate the sounds of a vast array of accordions. You may know that the term accordion refers to a portable musical instrument of the free reed family, that its sound is controlled by air flow from the bellows, and that there are almost as many types as there are countries. The accordion family indeed includes instruments called Aeloine, Aerophone, Bayan, Buzika, Concertina, Drngkammarorgel, Fisarmonica, Hanuri, Melodeon, Pedalowka, Schwyzerorgeli, Squeeze Box, Sun Fin Chin, and many others. For the first time in history, Roland introduces an accordion instrument that can emulate (recreate) the sounds and behavior of several bellows instruments. Though it is also the most sophisticated MIDI controller to date (even more powerful than any keyboard instrument), the major advantage of the FR-7b/FR-5b is probably that it allows you to change sounds without changing instruments. Apart from the financial benefit (the FR-7b/FR-5b costs far less than what you have to pay for the emulated originals), this also means that you can use your familiar playing style and techniques while covering a host of different musical genres.To get the most out of the FR-7b/FR-5b and to ensure many years of trouble-free service, we urge you to read through this Owners Manual thoroughly.

    Before using this instrument, carefully read the Important notes (p. 9). They provide information concerning the proper operation of the FR-7b/FR-5b. Be sure to keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
