Players can work on their timekeeping with several coach mode exercises and build on stamina with daily exercise routines with the warm-up menu. In addition to this, you can capture progress and identify weak points that need working on with the onboard recorder.
The TD-17 sound module also features the integration with Melodics for V-Drums. Melodics is a Windows/Mac application that provides a large selected of free drum lessons to help you improve your rhythm, timing and muscle memory. There are also 7 play-along tracks for enjoyable practice.
Bluetooth connectivity enables you to stream audio directly from your device. This allows you to directly stream music to your V-Drums kit, letting you play along to your favourite songs, as well as allowing you to rehearse along to songs you'll be playing live.
The module features a handy holding slot for your smartphone – preventing you from hitting or dropping your phone whilst practising with the Bluetooth feature.
50 High-quality pre-set kits to cover all styles
The Roland TD-17KV V-Drums Electronic Drum Kit features the TD-17 sound module – including 50 high-quality pre-set kits, featuring Roland’s Prismatic Sound Modelling. The Prismatic Sound Modelling conveys every element of your performance in thrilling detail. This feature was first introduced in Roland's TD-50 series, their top of the range, flagship V-Drums kit.
The sound of each pad and cymbal can be changed on the module with over 300 onboard drum and percussion sounds to choose from. These sounds cover styles such as; jazz, metal, electronic and many more!
Accurate response and sound recreation
The sounds accurately reproduce your playing style as if you were playing on an acoustic kit. For example, the natural tonal changes vary depending on where you hit the pad or cymbal and how hard you’re playing. Combined with the increased pad size and trigger accuracy, you're guaranteed an expressive and resonant playing experience with incredibly authentic drum sounds and a playing feel to match.
Create your own unique sounds
The TD-17 sound module allows for unique sound editing in various ways, allowing you to find your desired sound. You can change the size of cymbals, the room size and shape, the wall material and the mic placements. These changes all make a mass difference to the overall sound of each pad/cymbal.
You can also import and layer your own samples using the SD card slot, allowing you to create a completely unique sound, or import a sound from external software such as EZdrummer for example.
Extensive editing functions offer sample layering, with an easy-to-use interface. Each sound can be edited with; delay, chorus, flanger, phaser and many more.
Improved mesh pads for an authentic experience
The PDX-12 snare pad is a 12'' dual ply mesh snare pad – larger than any available pad on any other intermediate level V-Drum kit. The PDX-12 features high-quality materials and a newly designed rubber hoop, providing an authentic acoustic feel. The head tension is adjustable, offering a natural rebound and stick-feel. Two independent sensors provide separate sounds to the head and rim, ensuring that the pad provides an authentic playing experience and makes the most of Roland's Prismatic Sound Modelling Engine.
The TD-17 also features the KD-10 kick pad. This features a rubber cover combined with a cushion – designed to absorb far more of the noise than the KD-9 alternative. This pad provides the same satisfying thud due to the depth of the pad, allowing the beater to sink deeper into the pad. The KD-10 accommodates single pedals and dual pedals, as well as being compatible with Roland's Noise Eater pedal to further provide a near silent playing experience.
