Roland V-Drums Friend Jam
Roland announces V-Drums Friend Jam,their new social networking tool for drummers.
The free V-Drums Friend Jam software app allows V-Drums users across the globe to interact with each other while working on their drumming skills with play-along MP3 songs and practice evaluation features.
Available for both Windows and Mac OS X, V-Drums Friend Jam automatically downloads a suite of practice songs after a user installs the application on their computer. The play-along songs cover popular musical styles including rock, pop, jazz, metal, and more, and feature full-band arrangements minus drums. In addition to these special practice tracks, users can also add MP3 files stored on their computer and jam with their favorite tunes.
By connecting their V-Drums kit to their computer using a MIDI interface (available separately), players can record and evaluate individual performance elements including beat, stamina, and technique. Using their Twitter account, they can share their results and compare how they rank with other V-Drums Friend Jam users around the world. In addition, the included calendar feature records daily playing time, providing a way for players to set and achieve practice goals.
The V-Drums Friend Jam software application is available as a free download at www.Roland.com/V-Drums/FriendJam.
