The Roland V-Drums TD-50 Module is a powerful tool for pro drummers. The new Prismatic Sound Modelling technology conveys every element of your performance in thrilling detail. When you combine this module with Roland's new trigger pads with advanced trigger-sensing technology you're guaranteed the most authentic, expressive and resonant drum sounds you'll hear from any electronic kit.
The TD50 includes onboard kits to suit every session. The advanced module supports deep sound customisation, including basic adjustment of heads and shells, layering of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience control. For tailored performance, the compressor and 3-band EQ effect can be controlled by each pad individually, while three independent multi-effect sections let you treat specific drums with 30 effect types such as delay, flanger and saturator. The 2-band multi-compressor and 4-band equaliser let you change the output balance and volume, depending on whether you're in the studio or onstage. The new Snapshot feature is a fast way to assess and compare any edits to your sounds before making permanent changes.
Because all great drummers know there's always room for improvement, the Roland TD50 contains tutorial features including Quiet Count for timing and play along via SD.
The TD-50's open-ended connectivity lets your inspiration flow in both directions. Play external WAV files with the SD slot then trigger them using any Roland drum or cymbal pad. Loop or layer your own WAV file sounds alongside the internal sounds whilst controlling audio and volume via the TD-50's front panel. Connect to a PC or Mac with the USB cable for multi-track recording on your favourite DAW. Up to 10 channels can be recorded separately, then easily edited for tone colour and more, and there's a choice of audio sampling formats (48kHz, 96kHz and the standard 44.1kHz).
If you gig regularly the Roland TD-50 could help avoid any lengthy set-ups. It's the first Roland drum module to feature a balanced XLR Master Out for direct connection to a PA system without a DI box. 8 Direct Outs (TRS) are also included and assigning the pad to any of the individual outputs is simple. Convenient master/phones volume controls and group faders balance the output level for each pad instantly. You can even send the output via the phones output, to control the level of your monitor sound without routeing it through the PA.
The TD-50 Drum Sound Module includes a unique audio record function. Simply hit record and start playing to record your performance. If you’re playing to a click or to a backing track, there’s an option to record with the drums only or record both drums and track together. Your recordings can then be easily exported for upload and editing in your DAW.
