Roland - 'WM-1'
Wireless MIDI Adaptor

A World of WirlessCurrently more and more products are becoming wireless to save you from tangled cables, clutter and restricted distance. Wireless control is now a common must have feature for most products whilst remaining as reliable and high quality as a cable. Roland have kept up with the wireless evolution with their WM-1 wireless MIDI adaptor.

Simply plug the Roland WM-1 into a keyboard, drum machine or any other hardware that features standard MIDI I/O to have wireless control of MIDI apps on an iOS or Mac computer, these can also be run simultaneously. You can connect additional instruments and devices using extra WM-1’s or the WM-1 Wireless MIDI Dongle. Along with MIDI note data, MIDI tempo sync, effects, loops. LOFs and more, can all be controlled wirelessly.

Amazing Features • Wireless MIDI adaptor for keyboards, drum machines, and other MIDI devices
• Provides low-latency MIDI communication between other WM-series units and macOS/iOS Bluetooth MIDI devices
• Fast mode delivers ultra-low-latency communication (3 ms) for timing-critical applications
• Standard mode supports up to four total devices; Fast mode supports two total devices
• Battery life of about 60 hours on a single AAA battery

Spark Your Creativity

More Room For CreativityMany situations can be solved with wireless MIDI. For example, you might want a clean and simple setup with just a MIDI keyboard and laptop, iPhone, or iPad. Alternatively, you may have a favorite MIDI controller set up a distance away from your DAW which would otherwise require a long cable.

You may just want the freedom to move around with a small keyboard or pad controller without any trip hazards. Wireless connectivity gives more room for your creativity without the inconvenience of wrapping and unwrapping long cables. Once you’ve experienced the freedom of the WM-1, you’ll never look back.

Low latency. High performance.

Instant ResponseThe main concern for musicians when it comes to wireless is the latency it might cause, making it extremely difficult for them to stay in time when there is a delay between hitting a note to hearing it.

Thankfully, the wireless technology found in the Roland WM-1 gives you an instant, and incredibly responsive playing experience. You wont notice any difference in sound or latency than a standard MIDI cable.

Warp Speed

Incredibly Fast CommunicationThe standard mode on the WM-1/WM-1D will cover most playing situations, timing-critical applications may benefit from even more speed.

Fast mode upgrades the transfer rate to 3 ms better than the internal speed of many hardware devices, giving you incredibly fast communication between another WM-1 or WM-1D.

WM-1D: Computer Support & Ultra-Low Latency

Works SimultaneouslyIf you're using a Windows computer, you’ll need the WM-1D Wireless MIDI Dongle to bring wireless MIDI into your setup. Simply plug it into an open USB port for smooth and responsive communication with any instrument or device in your WM wireless system.

Mac computers and iOS devices can communicate with a WM-series unit in Standard mode over Bluetooth MIDI. But if you need the benefits of Fast mode, or want to connect multiple computers wirelessly, just plug in a WM-1D
