Roland Pro Audio Gear – Coming Soon to Sonic Electronix!


Roland is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary and Sonic Electronix couldn’t be happier for them! To help celebrate, we will soon be carrying a comprehensive line of Roland, Boss and Cakewalk pro audio gear. Roland was founded by Mr. Ikutaro Kakehashi in Osaka, Japan in April of 1972. Today, Roland has factories in the U.S., Italy, Japan and Taiwan. For any out there who might have just recently emerged from under a rock, Roland is one of the most ubiquitous and reputable names in professional audio equipment. From instruments like synthesizers, electronic drum sets and dance/DJ gear to amplifiers, guitar pedals and recording products, Roland will no doubt continue to expand its catalog throughout the professional audio world.

Where It All Began

Roland’s first product was the Roland Rhythm 77 (TR-77), a drum machine housed in a flat wooden case that had a stand for holding scorebooks. It was designed for rhythm accompaniment to organs, pianos, synths and such. It was one of a trio of drum machines (TR-33 & TR-55) with slightly different features between them. In 2011, Roland has unveiled products such as the BC-2 Combo Drive guitar pedal, a complete DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) known as Sonar X1, and the globally unique SPD-SX sampling pad among several others. Truly, each of these products could warrant a blog of their own, and maybe we’ll see one or some of those here someday as Sonic Electronix continues to grow.

Where It’s Going

We at Sonic Electronix are clearly taking our expansion into the professional audio realm very seriously with the addition of the Roland product line. We’re tirelessly working to get these products up and available on our site so that you can take advantage of Sonic’s great deals and integrate the Roland name into your life. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Life is what you make it.” With nary a shred of doubt, I think just about anyone reading this would agree that music can make life pretty spectacular. Between your enthusiasm for music and the legendary quality of the Roland name, the possibilities are infinite. Keep your eyes and ears open for more news on this topic, as we will soon be shouting it from the rooftops… and blogging about it from our cubicles, of course.

The American Audio side of the company focuses more on the Pro Audio and Studio products such as mixers, DJ headphones, power amplifiers, DJ turntables, DJ cases, PA systems, and much more.

Being an employee of Sonic Electronix, I was lucky enough to sit in on a product training session that American Audio put on for our company earlier this week, they brought in a good number of products and provided us with some very helpful information to educate us. One of the items that American Audio focused on was the PPA-210 PA System.

American Audio VMS4 MIDI Controller

American Audio VMS4 MIDI Controller

There are not too many old school DJs now-a-days, I mean, how often do you see a DJ at a club spinning vinyl records? With technology these days, there is no reason to lug around those bulky records in milk crates from venue to venue. The digital DJ has taken over the scene, most of them keep all of their mixes and music on laptops or iPods, so manufactures like American Audio create products that make a DJs job a bit easier. One of those products is the VMS4 MIDI Controller.

The VMS4 is a 4-channel table top MIDILOG controller and is American Audio’s top of the line controller. This controller fuses both MIDI software and analog audio control into one unit, hence the “MIDILOG” reference from above. A new feature that American Audio has incorporated into this controller is the built-in USB port, this provides plug-n-play right out of the box and allows the VMS4 to be used with any MIDI audio software titles. This controller is equipped with two velocity touch sensitive jog wheels, a full function mouse pad, two 10- bit resolution pitch sliders, 62 assignable MIDI buttons and switches (50 with LED illuminations, 18 with dual blue/red LEDs), 4 assignable rotary encoders, 34 assignable rotary controllers, and 5 assignable linear fader controllers. All audio control faders, knobs, switches, and buttons have been smoothed to eliminate popping, wiper noise, and zipper noise. One cool feature that really caught my eye was the built-in soundcard, now there’s no need for additional interfaces between the controller and a computer.

The VMS4 MIDI Controller includes the very popular and easy to use Virtual LE DJ Software so you can start playing right out of the box. However, this is only the special edition software, so if you plan to use this product professionally, you should consider upgrading to the full professional version. Virtual DJ has made it real easy to do so, there is a link to upgrade at the top of its page, so in just one click, you have yourself the full version. If you’re not a professional though, the special edition will be just fine for you.

This all in one DJ controller has everything you need to create your own personal mixes, so whether you’re a professional, or just doing it for fun, the VMS4 will suit your needs.
