Roland SPD-SX Sampling Drum Pad - Product Information
The Roland SPD-SX Sampling Drum Pad builds on the success of the SPD-S by adding a host of great new features. The internal 4GB memory has plenty of room for all of your sounds. Need more? You can now load sounds via USB flash memory and mass storage drives. Roland has equipped the SDPSX with their most advanced triggering system yet. The nine velocity sensitive pads provide a great feel and corresponding LED's let you know the pads status.
Today's musical styles require drummers to have access to unique sounds and samples. There is no easier way to get booming kicks and cutting claps into your performances. The SPD-SX fits easily into your drum set or percussion setup. Use the bundled SPD-SX Wave Manager to import your go to sounds directly from your computer onto the SPD-SX.
Sampling your own sounds couldn't be easier, just hit the pad you want to record to once to start and again to stop. Once your sounds are recorded, then the real fun begins. There are three multi effects units onboard that allow you to mangle, filter or enhance your sounds. These effects are easily tweaked from the four front panel knobs.
Even though the SPDSX is loaded to the gills with features and specs it still plays and feels like an instrument. All of your playing techniques translate very well and it soon becomes an extension of your musical ideas. All while be very intuitive to operate.
