Musikmesse 2012Roland introduces Roland Wireless Connect - Wireless Communication Between Roland Instruments and the iPhone


Roland has introduced Roland Wireless Connect, a new system that allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with the iPhone. Consisting of a wireless USB adapter and two new iOS apps, Roland Wireless Connect makes it easy for Roland users to enjoy their instruments with the popular mobile devices from Apple.

With the Air Recorder app, audio can be recorded from a Roland synthesizer or V-Accordion 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.

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, convenient 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.

The hardware portion of Roland Wireless Connect is a simple, compact wireless USB adapter WNA1100-RL (manufactured by NETGEAR and distributed by Roland) that plugs into the USB port on a Roland instrument. In order for the mobile device to communicate with compatible musical instruments, you need a wireless LAN access point with Internet connection.

  • V-Drums Sound Modules: TD-30 / TD-15 / TD-11.
  • V-Accordions: FR-7x / FR-3x / FR-1x.
