Roland announces the new VIMA JM-5 Sound Module is now shipping.
The JM-5 is a solution for control of musical backgrounds at home or at any entertainment venue.
The JM-5 is a self-contained unit dedicated to live vocal performance, and is designed for karaoke, singers, piano players, and entertainment venue owners. The VIMA JM-5 includes 128-voice polyphony and an SSC Sound Engine with about 1,000 sounds and 57 drum kits.
Songs can be played in a variety of formats—SMF, KAR, MP3, MP3+CDG, WAV, WAV+CDG, VIMA Tunes—either from USB Memory or external hard disk. You can sing along with the two microphone inputs and included auto harmony and effects presets. Songs can be recalled, and tempo and key can be changed with the turn of a knob. Vocal sounds on commercial recordings can be minimized with the Center Cancel feature. A performance can be recorded to USB host memory as well.
The VIMA JM-5 also includes a composite video output so the audience or musician can follow lyrics and chord symbols on an external video display as an SMF song is being played. Users can load pictures from USB memory or external hard disk for a virtual slideshow.
Pricing & Availability:
The JM-5 is shipping now with a suggested retail price of $1,599.00.
