The do-it-all entertainment module
In homes, hotels, lounges, or any entertainment venue, the new VIMA JM-5 is the premiere all-in-one entertainment station. With its high-quality sound engine, the VIMA JM-5 can play and manipulate any file you feed it. But that's only the beginning of what this multifaceted instrument can do. Karaoke? The VIMA JM-5 accepts a wide range of file formats, including SMF, MP3, WAV, MP3+CDG, and VIMA Tunes via USB. Simply play your favorite songs and use the VIMA JM-5 to change tempo and/or key signature to best suit the singers' voices. Plug in a microphone or two, and sing along using the powerful onboard Vocal effects, including Auto Harmony. The VIMA JM-5 can display lyrics and slide-show images to match the music. When using WAV or MP3 files, you can use the Center Cancel function to minimize pre-existing vocals for sing-along fun. You can even record your performances directly to USB and distribute to family and friends.
The VIMA JM-5 benefits from Roland's world-leading synthesizer and audio technology. Its 128-voice sound engine offers plenty of bandwidth and exceptional sound quality. Play SMF, MP3, WAV, MP3+CDG and VIMA Tunes files and build your own custom libraries in your favorite key signatures and tempos. When playing MP3 and WAV files, you can use the VIMA JM-5's Center Cancel feature to minimize pre-existing vocals, making your own instant karaoke/sing-along songs.
The VIMA JM-5 can play back many kinds of music files directly from a connected USB memory or self-powered hard disk. It lets you change key signature and tempo to best suit your voice or performance style. The VIMA JM-5 can also be connected to a TV, monitor, or a projector and display the lyrics of the selected songs as well as digital photos. You can prepare playlists of your songs for seamless performance onstage. The playlists can be saved in a USB memory or a self-powered USB hard disk.
