When inspiration strikes, VERSELAB helps you capture, refine, and finish your ideas. The fluid, hands-on workflow simplifies music making with modern vocal recording, pattern generators, thousands of ZEN-Core sounds, mastering effects, and more. Plug-and-play integration with Roland's Zenbeats app expands your production capabilities using your computer or mobile device.*

Hit the Ground Running
Music production can require a lot of time, money, and expertise. And for many new producers, it's hard to know where to begin. VERSELAB has everything you need to make radio-ready tracks without all the complications, so you can focus on what matters most - your music.

From Intro to Outro
If you're a vocalist, beatmaker, or both, it's easy to create complete songs with VERSELAB, regardless of your skill level. Move fluidly from ideas to beats, hooks, and your listeners' ears with song templates, pattern generators, and a guided workflow that keeps you on track. Whether you're just getting started, getting lost with too many options, or need to take a sledgehammer to writer's block, VERSELAB is there to keep it moving.

Bars Meet Beats
VERSELAB is designed for modern music making and vocal recording. The high-quality XLR mic input makes it easy to record vocals with built-in effects like Auto-Pitch, Harmonizer, Doubler and more. Just plug in a mic, dial in the sound, and go. With 16 easy access takes and the ability to copy them anywhere in your song, arranging is a snap.

Sounds From the Source
For songs to knock, you need the best sounds available. Roland's sound has helped define hip-hop and other modern genres for decades, from the TR-808 to the SP-404. This sonic legacy is packed into VERSELAB, with over 3000 curated sounds that hit the spot.

Get More with ZEN-Core
VERSELAB uses Roland's most advanced sound engine - the ZEN-Core Synthesis System. It's at the heart of their professional synthesizers and ensures top-notch sound quality. With Roland Cloud, you can expand the onboard library with thousands of new tones, including genre-specific Sound Packs to keep your music fresh.

Hands-on Music Making
Go beyond the mouse and keyboard with VERSELAB's inspiring RGB-lit pads and hands-on controls. Combining the TR-REC step sequencer found in legendary Roland drum machines with an ultra-responsive 4x4 pad matrix, you can bang out drum tracks, basslines, and melodic parts as fast as they come to you.

Plug-and-Play with Zenbeats*
With expanding plug-and-play Zenbeats integration, you can connect VERSELAB to your computer, tablet, or smartphone for another level of production capability. Mix your VERSELAB songs or bounce tracks in Zenbeats, use plug-in instruments and effects, and much more via a simple USB connection.

Collaborate and Connect
VERSELAB is compact, portable, and can be powered by a mobile battery, so you can make tracks just about anywhere. Collaborate in person or remotely by sharing projects or tapping into the cloud storage features of Zenbeats.

Good job



Quick shipping and I'm enjoying exploring the MV-1


Great product in that it focuses the user on workflow. I like workflow that generates the desired deliverable at the end. It is my hope that this allows me to stay in songwriting mode, and spend less focus on audio engineering -- to stay more creative. There is a little learning curve to get to that point, but I'm sure it will provide that ability. I was concerned that as a keyboardist, I could plug my keyboard in, to get a better performance into clips: that is the case, and I am able to play on my favorite midi keyboard.





the mv1 is fors song writers, great workflow, well built, pc integration, can perorm with any gear



Worth buying


It is great and works perfectly. It responds well and no delays.





I had a very satisfied experience shopping at Sam Ash. They handled my order fast. Very reputable. Thanks to Sam Ash For a possible experience.



Good musical creation system


Workflow is similar to my MC-101, but the sound processing is incredible. It's an excellent design, I like having the sequencing steps laid out and always available. Built in mic is good enough to work with too.
