The Roland WM-1D is a USB dongle that lets your Mac or Windows computer send and receive MIDI information wirelessly at a range of up to 30' from a WM-1 unit (available separately). In addition to MIDI note data, you can send MIDI sync for tempo, effects, LFOs, loops, and more—all without connecting a single cable.

The WM-1D plugs into an available USB Type-A port on your computer and is used in conjunction with a WM-1 adapter connected to the 5-pin DIN MIDI ports on your keyboard, controller, or drum machine. In Standard mode, you can connect up to 4 devices, but the latency will range from 7.5 ms up to 15 ms, which may create timing issues. For a more responsive playing feel, the Fast mode lowers the latency to 3ms, but this limits you to connecting only two devices.

Unleash Your Wireless Creativity

There are situations where wireless MIDI can be a real problem solver. You may want a simple, clean setup with just a MIDI keyboard and your laptop, iPhone, or iPad. You may have a favorite MIDI controller situated away from your DAW requiring long, unsightly cables that can be tripped over, or maybe you just want the freedom to move around your creative space with a small keyboard or pad controller. The WM-1D and WM-1 solves those problems and lets you focus on unencumbered creating.

Low Latency, High Performance

For musicians, the downfall of many wireless MIDI systems is latency—that is, the time it takes to hear sound once you've pressed a key or tapped a drum pad. High latency makes playing feel unnatural, and you can never get the timing right. The proprietary wireless technology in the WM series provides an immediate, ultraresponsive playing experience, just like you're plugged in with a normal MIDI cable.

Warp Speed

While Standard mode on the WM-1D and WM-1 will cover most playing situations, timing-critical applications may benefit from even more speed. Fast mode turbocharges the transfer rate to 3ms, better than the internal speed of many hardware devices, providing ultrafast communication with a WM-1.

Computer Support and Ultralow Latency

If you're using a Windows computer, the WM-1D is what you need to bring wireless MIDI into your setup. Simply plug it into an open USB port for smooth and responsive communication with any instrument or device in your WM wireless system. Mac computers and iOS devices can communicate with a WM-series unit in Standard mode over Bluetooth MIDI, but if you need the benefits of Fast mode, or want to connect multiple computers wirelessly, just plug in a WM-1D.
