Roland VERSELAB MV-1
Combining a streamlined workflow and seamless integration with mobile devices, the Roland VERSELAB MV-1 is a thoroughly modern platform for developing fresh musical ideas fast. The 16 RBG pads and TR-style step sequencer both offer plenty of flexibility for crafting individual sequences, and grouping them together into musical structures. MV-1 provides four drum tracks and four melodic tracks, including a dedicated Vocal track which utilizes the built-in microphone input and several voice effects.
The magic of working with the MV-1 comes down to its Workflow section, laying out a linear progression of building a track from scratch. Starting in Sequence mode, laying down a beat or bassline is super easy, with a handy Style mode available with some preset patterns in case you get stuck. For your sound palette, the VERSELAB is running Roland's ZEN-Core engine, offering a suite of classic Roland Cloud instruments and other sounds at your fingertips. Motion sequencing is also available, allowing for automation-style recording of parameters to add some variation to your patterns. From there, layer parts together into sections within a larger songform, combining different sequences, vocal takes, and more as you see fit. Once your track is coming together, the Mixer section allows you to dial in levels and effects to get the feel and vibe of your song just right. Once that's ready to go, mixdown your track to a bounced audio file and immediately upload it to your preferred music and social media platforms.
VERSELAB integrates with the Roland Zenbeats app for extended capabilities, combining both into a powerhouse music production environment, but the stereo audio I/O and MIDI connectivity make the MV-1 a captivating addition to any collection of instruments. Watching the seeds of your musical ideas bloom into full tracks has never been easier with the VERSELAB MV-1 from Roland.
