Interactive Learning Software for All V-Drums Users

Los Angeles, CA, January 19, 2012 — Roland is proud to announce the DT-1  V-Drums® Tutor,  a new drum lesson software application for all V-Drums users. Building  on the success of the DT-HD1 software for the entry-level HD-1 V-Drums  Lite,  the DT-1 V-Drums Tutor offers integration with all V-Drums kits,  expanded tutorials, Windows/Mac compatibility, and more.

The DT-1 V-Drums Tutor uses both  “game style” and drum notation screens to teach introductory drum  patterns and techniques in a fun and easy manner. The software  integrates seamlessly with any V-Drums  electronic drum set via a simple USB-MIDI connection.

Included are 57  basic drum patterns with rudimental exercises for building drumming  skills, as well as 60 full-band songs with a “minus drums” feature for  play-along enjoyment. In addition,  users can load their favorite SMF songs and jam along.

In the Game screen, drummers play along with falling blocks  to obtain high scores, which helps develop timing accuracy in a fun, interactive way.

In  the Notation screen, a bouncing ball guides players through the  patterns and demonstrates which pads to play and which hands to use  when playing fills. Accuracy is indicated by colorful x and o markings,  which assists in improving timing skills. The Dynamic Bar Graph helps  develop evenness between the hands by displaying stroke balance  visually.

The  DT-1 also allows drummers to slow down or speed up tempos, repeat  sections, and select specific pads for playback to help them learn  more difficult patterns. The software is compatible with Windows (XP/Vista/7) and Mac OS X (10.xx and later).

The DT-1 V-Drums Tutor will be available in February 2012 For more information, please visit www.RolandConnect.com.
