Roland Wireless Connect is an innovative system that allows Roland electronic musical instruments to communicate with the iPhone.
Roland Wireless Connect consists of a wireless USB adapter (model # WNA1100-RL, manufactured by NETGEAR and distributed by Roland) that plugs into the USB port on a Roland instrument, and two iOS apps: Air Recorder and V-Drums Friend Jam.
The following instruments are compatible with the Roland Wireless Connect system. Synthesizers: JUNO-Di, JUNO-Gi, JUPITER-80, JUPITER-50, Lucina AX-09, and BK-5/BK-5 OR. V-Drums Sound Modules: TD-30, TD-15, and TD-11. V-Accordions: FR-1x. In order for the mobile device to communicate with compatible musical instruments, you need a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection.
The Air Recorder app, audio can be recorded from a Roland synthesizer, V-Accordion, or V-Drums directly into the iPhone. Songs can be played from the iPhone and sent to the instrument, where users can jam along and record the result back in Air Recorder. You can export your recorded songs to other apps as well.
V-Drums Friend Jam for iPhone is an iOS version of V-Drums Friend Jam, the popular social practice tool for drummers. While the Mac/Windows version of V-Drums Friend Jam requires a USB or MIDI connection from a V-Drums sound module to a computer, Roland Wireless Connect provides a direct, cable-free connection from the module to the iPhone. The app allows V-Drums users across the globe to interact with each other while improving their drumming skills with play-along audio songs and practice evaluation features.
