A portable all-in-one audio player that's packed with jam-along features and guitar effects.

For "bedroom guitarists" who love jamming along with their favorite songs, the ultimate musical companion has arrived. The Roland eBand is a portable all-in-one audio player that's packed with big features. WAV and MP3 files can be loaded and played by the eBand audio player, and the tempo and pitch can be changed. Plug in your guitar and jam along using the Roland eBand's powerful onboard COSM preamp and BOSS effects. You can minimize the prerecorded vocals or guitar parts with the Center Cancel feature for minus-one play, and record and save your jams. There's even a library of backing tracks and rhythms onboard, plus a built-in tuner and metronome.

BOSS FX Onboard
Roland eBand is loaded with high-quality BOSS effects derived from the GT-10, including over 100 powerful guitar sounds that span a variety of genres. It also features the famous COSM preamp from the Boss GT-10 guitar effects processor. Using eBand's Guitar/Mic input, you can apply the internal processing to your guitar or voice.

EZ TONE Sound Wizard
Creating your own sounds is simple with Roland eBand audio player. The EZ TONE feature provides a quick, intuitive approach to tone creation based on graphic icons and a Tone Grid. You'll be programming at the speed of sound.

Memory-Card Compatibility
SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB can be plugged into the Roland eBand audio player, letting you store thousands of WAV/MP3-format songs per card. eBand also lets you play WAV/MP3 files directly from USB memory stick, expanding your data storage and file-management options. (Roland eBand comes with a 1GB SD card).

Convenient Phrase Trainer
Phrase Trainer is a feature packed function convenient for practicing phrases from imported songs. Phrase Trainer includes functions to control pitch and tempo of imported songs, Center Cancel for minimizing the guitar or vocal parts from prerecorded audio, and AB repeat. Now you can learn phrases without feeling any stress!

USB Audio Interface
The Roland eBand audio player can be used as a USB audio interface, allowing the audio signals from eBand (audio-player sound + live guitar/vocal sound) to be transferred to PC via USB. As a result, eBand audio can be recorded into DAW software on your PC. Furthermore, audio from PC can be played back on eBand. This means the Roland eBand can function as USB speakers for your PC.

Cool Extras
There are many other notable features packed into Roland eBand, including an internal recorder for capturing your guitar performances as you play along with songs or backing tracks. And speaking of backing tracks, 300 audio-loop phrases are onboard for jam-along inspiration. Of course the Roland audio player is also equipped with the essential built-in tuner and metronome.
