Roland OCTAPAD SPD-30 is a digital percussion instrument with built-in sounds and effects, a phrase looping functionality, and the capability of controlling external MIDI devices and software instruments via USB connectivity. SPD-30 has 8 isolated drum pads that make use of Roland’s advanced V-Drum technology and the ability to expand with inputs for four pads, triggers and pedals.
The internal sounds offer you 50 different drum kits covering a wide range of percussion styles. There’re a total of 670 instruments, with a massive 80 note polyphony. The phase looping functionality allows you to create and layer up to 3 loops, using 3 different drum sets. You can assign multiple drum sounds to each pad to create deep and complex sounds. Synthesizers, basses and other instruments and samples are included in the internal sounds, so you can really build up entire songs.
The SPD-30 not only has the ability to take control of the traditional sound modules and other instruments with its MIDI I/O interface but it can be connected to a computer via USB to control software-based instruments. An additional USB port is included to back-up your work. The four extra trigger inputs include a dedicated hi-hat controller, so the OCTAPAD SPD-30 can be used as a full drum kit. Drummers can also put Roland’s RT series triggers on their acoustic drum heads and blur the line between their electronic and acoustic kits.
Roland KT-10 is ideal for use alongside an acoustic kick pedal in a hybrid drum set thanks to its small footprint, and it also works great for expanding the capabilities of an SPD-series percussion pad or the HandSonic HPD-20. Of course, the KT-10s pro feel, noise-reducing features, and portable convenience make it perfect for use with any V-Drums kit as well.
