There’s always toys to play with at NAMM and Roland pretty well gives visitors free reign to walk about and try whatever they can lay their hands on. The was sitting in the middle of the floor giving all walks of guitarists, basists, drummers and keyboardists the excuse to spontaneously jam on Headphones.
The HS-5 allows up to five musicians to rehearse, jam, and record while monitoring with headphones. Players have individual hands-on control of their personal mix, plus access to reverb and COSM effects for guitar, bass, and vocals. Bands can capture stereo recordings directly to a USB thumb drive, or connect the HS-5 to a computer via a USB cable and record each channel to individual tracks in a DAW. Additionally, each musician’s personalized settings can be saved for instant recall, providing quick setup for future rehearsals and recording sessions.
