Social Networking Software For V-Drummers


Roland has announced V-Drums Friend Jam, which they describe as a powerful new social networking tool for drummers. Here's what they have to say about it...
Since their introduction in 1997, Roland's V-Drums have been the standard for modern electronic drum sets among players everywhere. Now, the free and easy-to-use V-Drums Friend Jam software app allows V-Drums users across the globe to interact with each other while improving 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 an easy and convenient way for players to set and achieve practice goals.
Pricing and Availability:
The V-Drums Friend Jam software application is available as a free download. More information:
