Turn pages in digital music scores with the footswitches as you play. For example, you can move forward as you perform or page back to work on specific areas.
Take advantage of YouTube keyboard commands to learn faster with online lesson content. Keep your hands on your instrument and use your feet to control play/pause, rewind, playback speed, and more.
Stay focused on capturing great performances with hands-free control of music recording software. Operate record, play, and other keyboard commands in your DAW. Or use the software’s MIDI learn tools to configure setups on the fly.
Wirelessly change presets, control effects, and more on Bluetooth-equipped products like Pocket GT, Katana-Air, and Waza-Air, or the GX-100 via the Bluetooth® Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor. And control MIDI keyboards, hardware devices, and computers over Bluetooth using Roland’s WM-1 and WM-1D.
Using the FS-1-WL editor app on your computer or smartphone, you can change up the pre-configured setups to operate just about any software application or MIDI device. Assign keyboard commands to the footswitches, either single keystrokes or combinations with modifier keys like shift and control. Or call up MIDI mode and set up custom PC and CC messages for your devices. You can also create a library of configurations for different needs.
Backed by decades of BOSS design expertise, the FS-1-WL is comfortable to use and built to last. The footswitches are quiet and easy to press, with no click noises to interrupt your workspace or performance stage. Status LEDs provide high visibility and can be set to different colors with the editor app. Two AAA alkaline batteries offer up to 14 hours of operation on the move, and AC power is supported with an optional BOSS PSA adaptor.
Up to two external footswitches can be connected for expanded control with both MIDI messages and keyboard commands. And with an external expression pedal, you have continuous parameter control of any device that responds to MIDI CC messages. The FS-1-WL also features a TRS MIDI jack for wired operation of MIDI hardware devices.

Please register this product online to establish the date of purchase (not a requirement for warranty service).
To exercise your rights under this Warranty as a purchaser, you must ship this product in appropriate packaging at your expense (insurance is recommended), together with proof of purchase, to Roland Corporation U.S., or to such other address as may be instructed by Roland Corporation U.S. (This shipping requirement shall not apply to those Roland products covered by in-home warranties). You should submit a new service request to obtain a Return Authorization number for the returned product. Any products shipped to Roland Corporation U.S. without a Return Authorization number shall be refused.
Roland Corporation U.S. will repair or replace this product at its sole option at no charge to you for parts or for labor within the warranty period; provided, however, that Roland Corporation U.S. reserves the right to determine whether the product is 'defective' for purposes of this Limited Warranty. This Warranty does not apply to damage to this product that occurred as a result of abuse or misuse, abnormal service or handling, battery leakage or failure, damage which may have been caused either directly or indirectly by another product, or if the product has been altered or modified in any way, or if the damage was caused by repairs or service provided or attempted by anyone other than Roland Corporation U.S. or a Roland Authorized Service Center.
In no event shall Roland Corporation U.S. be liable for any indirect, incidental, collateral, exemplary, punitive, consequential or special damages or losses arising out of your purchase of products and/or out of this warranty, including without limitation, loss of use, profits, goodwill or savings or loss of data, music, electronic files, or programs that may have been stored by a user of the product even if Roland Corporation U.S. has been advised of the possibility of such damages or claims. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, punitive, or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Where applicable, if you qualify as a 'consumer' under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, then you shall be entitled to any implied warranties allowed by law for the period of the Limited Warranty as set forth above. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
