Product Description

The new Roland SPDSX is a trigger pad and sampler which will be the flagship in Roland's line of electronic pad samplers. Featuring 4 GB of built in memory for storing custom samples, extra trigger inputs if you need expandability, and a built-in multi effects unit to manipulate samples to fit your application, the SPDSX will be the go-to product for live performers, DJs, drummers and anyone who wants to augment their music with samples or trigger sounds using a high quality, robust multi trigger pad.

The SPDSX also comes with software for Mac or PC which allows you to manage and manipulate samples and transfer them to your SPDSX over USB - a quick and easy way to load on any existing samples and to top-and-tail samples en masse. Enjoy flexibility and rugged gig-ready build quality with the Roland SPDSX.

Here's what Roland say about the SPSDX

The new SPD-SX Sampling Pad puts powerful sample creation and playback under your sticks with innovative audio-capturing features, expressive playability, three multi-effects engines, and much more. The perfect addition to any acoustic or electronic drum kit, percussion setup, DJ booth, or keyboard rig, the SPD-SX is equally at home on the live stage, in the recording studio, pre-production suite, or dance club. The SPD-SX takes many of the proven concepts from its predecessor and raises them to a new level. Whether you're firing off one-shot samples, looped phrases, or complete audio playback tracks, the SPD-SX is loaded with the latest technology and tools to get the job done with speed, precision, and convenience. Enjoy the most advanced triggering and sampling technology in a sleek, easy-to-use percussion instrument.

More Details

The Playing Field

The SPD-SX is equipped with nine highly sensitive rubber pads with two independent real-time control knobs and four dedicated effect buttons. Roland's most advanced triggering technology ensures the ultimate in accuracy and fully dynamic performance, while a large backlit LCD provides easy-to-read data in all varieties of environments. Each pad has a companion LED that illuminates to show the pad's status. When you trigger sample phrases, the LEDs remain lit to show you which pads are in play and which are not. In addition, the LEDs change illumination strength according to audio-level activity (similar to level meters on a mixing board). The high-contrast red divider lines help you see the pad zones clearly onstage.

Improved Playability and Functionality

Today, increasing numbers of drummers and percussionists need to incorporate audio samples into their performance. The SPD-SX will satisfy their increasing requirements with essential features such as individual click output routing, dedicated volume controls, Pad Check function, individual Sub Out, and more.

Onboard Effects

The SPD-SX has three multi-effects units onboard: one master unit and two units that are assignable per kit. The master effects engine lets you perform in real time like a DJ using the dedicated front-panel controls. Get your hands on the filter, delay, short looper, and user-assignable effect - all of which can be creatively adjusted with the four front-panel buttons and two control knobs.

Multi-Pad Sampling

There's much more to the SPD-SX than meets the eye. A powerful-yet-friendly lineup of features has been built into this little powerhouse, such as Multi-Pad Sampling. While audio streams in from an external audio player or computer (via Audio In or USB), simply strike each pad at the appropriate start/end points, and the sample will be automatically truncated and assigned to that pad. It's a fast, friendly way to create multi-sampled phrases and pad maps.

SPD-SX Wave Manager Software Included

The SPD-SX's generous internal memory (4 GB) lets you store and carry your entire sample library inside. With no external memory required, you can house approximately 360 minutes of audio (10,000 files) at 16-bit, 44.1 kHz, mono. The built-in USB ports let you directly import audio files from USB flash memory. The bundled SPD-SX Wave Manager software app lets you import audio files directly from computer via USB, assign the samples to each pad, and organize the thousands of samples efficiently.

Mark Sismore12th Aug 2022

Really like this bit of kit, I can see a lot of creative potential ahead. Comes with a good instruction manual to get you going, I was uploading samples and kits the same afternoon. Now building up my library of sounds using the included software and my keyboards. Couple of things worth mentioning, not negatives but worth knowing before you start 1 the SPD X can’t see a thumb drive bigger than 32mb 2 when you save samples to export to the unit you need to make sure they are 16bit Overall a great piece of gear, can’t wait to incorporate it in a live set.

This seems to be a serious piece of kit... which is why I went for it. It's going to take a bit of figuring out. It's nicely made and I the pad response is pretty good. Looking forward to working it into next your's tour!!
