Roland and Melodics Announce “Melodics for V-Drums”


Free downloadable, interactive drum lesson app dedicated for V-Drums


Roland Corporation (LVCC Central Hall, Booth# 17544) and Melodics™ announce the release of “Melodics for V-Drums,” a dedicated desktop drum learning app for Roland V-Drums, compatible with Mac or PC.

Since the first Roland V-Drums release in 1997, over one million units have been sold all over the world. From top pros to entry-level hobbyists, V-Drums instruments are highly acclaimed for their authentic performance and the various digital advantages that help players enjoy drumming.

Since 2015, Melodics has offered its unique desktop music lesson app to build up the finger-drumming skills of DJs or EDM musicians using pad controllers and drum machines. The app’s lesson programs have a highly visual design that integrates interactive game styles to keep users motivated. Lessons are created by a variety of contemporary musicians to cover a wide range of music genres and playing styles, and new lessons are introduced every week to encourage regular practice.

Roland and Melodics collaborated on the release of the new Melodics for V-Drums app to help Roland V-Drums users create and build up efficient drumming techniques. The app supports V-Drums equipped with a USB computer connector such as the TD-50, TD-30, TD-25, TD-15, TD-11, and TD-1 series, and features 40 free lessons onboard. V-Drums users can start taking lessons immediately after installing the app on their computer and connecting to the V-Drums via a USB cable.

Melodics for V-Drums is being offered currently as a free download. Paid subscribers can enjoy additional 60 lessons, with new lessons being added every week.

Melodics Limited CEO Sam Gribben noted, “We are excited to be working with Roland, the world leaders in electronic drums, to help musicians build and refine their skills. As all great drummers know, practice is the key to mastery. Melodics is designed to help drummers get more from every minute they spend practicing. Not only will you learn faster, you’ll reduce the bad habits that can build up with unstructured practice. With music you’ll love to play to, and tools designed to help you stay motivated, Melodics will feel more like fun than work. Together, Roland and Melodics will help drummers around the world to get better, faster.”

Roland Corporation CEO and Representative Director Jun-ichi Miki added, “Since the first V-Drums release in 1997, V-Drums have been acclaimed by drummers all over the world. We decided to collaborate with Melodics to support effective drum practicing using our V-Drums. Generally, drum practicing tends to be boring and time consuming. The drum lessons available on Melodics cover various musical styles and help make learning to drum fun and efficient. The combination of using V-Drums and Melodics together is an ideal solution for both beginner and experienced drummers.”

Rilke Guillén

Rilke Guillén 

Artist Plásticomexicanocatalán, spiritually and vitally grown and split between two ways of being, of thinking and feeling. He has exhibited his work in Spain and Mexico for many decades.

Artist statement

I believe to express my vision of this splendor-decadent world that witnesses our existence, to try to move in the emotion of the viewer, to make him see inside yes; by the right and the reverse of the same glove of what is and exists and of what is not and also exists. Like the dream inside the eye and the outside eye. Like the truth and vertigo of the depth of the fractal-cosmic spiral. As a picture, as truth, as the line that springs from my pen. Creating images and sculptures gives meaning to my existence and being me from the inside-out, so I can communicate with others. I am an insatiable explorer of the plastic techniques that I am encountering in my path, such as painting, watercolor, engraving, sculpture, design, etc. My search in these different lands has the same objective: to find the voice that is capable of taking out this animal-human being, who is thronging in my heart. The fine perfume of the flower of my spirit.

Biography

I remember as a child drawing horses and birds obsessively. The representation of images has always seemed to me as a matter that holds great power, as if in representing an object or being, somehow one was made with his skill, with his unique quality. I have always been surrounded by art. My father, in his poetic dimension, attracted artists from all disciplines to the house to share his presence and talent, some of them had a great impact on me. There was a very special one that made me the honor of taking me as a disciple for a short but unforgettable time: The great teacher Rodolfo Zanabria (who in peace rides in infinity with his maidens with long hair and beautiful faces). From him, I learned that the road is long and if you know how to walk you will reach the Magical Domain. Destiny had the willingness to be a Mexican-Catalan artist, spiritually and vitally grown and split between two ways of being, thinking and feeling. This has allowed me to exhibit and share my work on both sides of the Atlantic since my debut on the plastic scene, until today.
