How It's Innovative

The EV-1-WL is the ideal creative partner for the growing range of music performance hardware with Bluetooth wireless support. The EV-1-WL can be paired via Bluetooth with Mac computers, smartphones, and tablets to interface with music apps that support remote operation with MIDI CC messages, from guitar amp simulators and effects to virtual instruments and music production software. And if you’re a Windows user, you can add a Roland WM-1D dongle for wireless communication with the EV-1-WL. The EV-1-WL also works as a standalone USB MIDI controller for music software on Mac or Windows computers. The class-compliant interface means there are no drivers to install—simply plug in with a USB cable and configure your software as needed for external MIDI input. With its space-saving TRS MIDI output, the EV-1-WL is a powerful accessory for all types of MIDI music hardware, from effect pedals and multi-effects processors to keyboards, drum machines, and beyond. The free EV-1-WL Editor app for iOS and Android devices lets you customize MIDI CC assignments for the EV-1-WL’s pedal, toe switch, and up to two external footswitches. The Bluetooth, USB, and TRS MIDI outputs support simultaneous operation, and you can create independent control settings for each. It’s also possible to set the switches for momentary or latching operation, adjust the pedal’s response curve, and more.
