The SPD30 from Roland is the ultimate trigger pad, played either as a standalone instrument, or used to augment your existing acoustic/electronic percussion setup. It condenses all of your additional drum and percussion needs into one highly playable, rugged, intelligent and versatile system.
With a footprint not much bigger than a standard laptop, this Octopad contains a whole world of exciting sounds right at your fingertips. Boasting additional features including 30 multi-effects and a phrase looper - which is ideal for both practice and layering sounds together - this unique piece of gear is just waiting to be explored.
Next In Line
The original Octopad from Roland developed an excellent reputation. It arguably helped to forever alter the way that electronic percussion is used and implemented within various drummers' respective setups. This new, updated model is no different in that regard.
Extensive Sound Library
Inside the SPD30, you'll find a depth and breadth of contrasting sounds. 99 kits are included in all - covering a wide range of different genres and musical styles. This ensures that you'll be ready for just about any kind of gig! Using the hands-on controls, these can be tweaked and tinkered with further. Tuning; pitch sweep; attack; muffling, plus a whole lot of other parameters can be customised and changed. The multi-effects (30 in total) can then be harnessed for further creative processing, alongside 7 ambience types an EQ, and a limiter.
Every single pad within the unit itself is isolated from the other. This results in both enhanced sensitivity and absolute crosstalk rejection. Four dual trigger inputs (plus a hi-hat controller) can be connected too, allowing you to build a small drum set using other external pads, or accept triggers from your acoustic drum set.
This built-in function can be used to craft multi-layered phrases and loops. It's possible to capture and then store up to 50 of these within the instrument itself. They can then be saved onto a USB at a later date.
