    Roland Atelier AT350c Portable

    Does anyone know of a review of this organ? Own one? or have views about it? Is it a good clonewheel. Is there a spec anywhere?

    I've moved this to Combo Organs as that's what it is.

    Alas, Keyboard Player magazine closed down just before I got to do the review. I've played it a bit now and though it can produce some great sounds, it does take a bit of 'driving' to access all the voices. You can store banks of registrations and then save these banks to USB stick, so that's the key to live performance with the organ. The Hammond sound is good, not 100% convinced about the rotary sim, but it's not in the same league as some of the better clones. If you need two manuals and all the extra goodies that the 350 offers, there's nothing else quite like it, but you have got to need and want all those extras!

    Full spec and brochure is available on most official Roland websites.

    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    Hi Andy
    Thanks for the reply You say there are better clones. Which ones in particular at this price range are you thinking about?

    For a more accurate Hammond sound, think about Hammond XK3c setups or the Nord line.

    Roland AT-350 Editor?

    Hi Andy - I am getting an AT-350c - it seems like its a lot of fun to play. However, to keep it portable, one has to dig quite deep into the machine to get "sounds" - i wondered if someone could push Roland to make a "Software" editor for registrations. There are excellent ones for their synths. Even the FX accordions you can set up registrations on your computer and load them from a USB stick...

    thanks so much. Can i just say how much i appreciate all the info on this forum?

    Hi Joe,

    I played the 350 the summer of 2010 at a keyboard show. If you understand the "Atelier way" of setting things up, you will have no problem. After 5 minutes I could play it fairly easily, and after 15 minutes it all seemed pretty smooth. Understand, though, I came from an Atelier perspective in the 1st place. If that is not your background, it will take longer to catch on, of course, but you will love the quality of sounds and styles. Keep some USBs handy for registration setups.
