Roland's SPD One Electro Percussion Pad is the perfect way of applying high-quality electronic sounds to your studio work or live performances. Loaded with 22 sounds - spanning hand claps, snares, cowbells and a load more - this unique instrument provides you with the rhythmic tools needed to enhance your productions and live shows. Simply clamp it to your tom, cymbal or hi-hat stand using the included adapter and you'll be ready to go!
Play Your Way
You can play this pad anyway you like, really. Use drumsticks, your hands, or your feet (if you're so inclined). Certain parameters like trigger threshold and sensitivity can be adjusted in seconds using the hands-on controls positioned on the side. The pad is responsive and highly playable, whether you're a drummer looking for a new element for your setup, or a guitarist who's looking for some stomping beats.
Extensive Sound Library
The pad contains a whole selection of Roland's highly renowned sonic history. You'll be able to harness the sounds of iconic instruments including the TD-909 and TR-808 drum machines, as well as a variety of punchy snares, crisp hi-hats and other electronic elements. Each can be processed to your exact liking, altering the pitch, reverb, or delay using just a couple of knobs.
Ease of use is the name of the game here. To select your sounds, all you have to do is turn the bank selector to one of the twelve positions and then strike the pad to get going. Four main knobs on the front let you lower or increase the volume, customise individual sounds and balance your levels. It's this range of streamlined controls which make the pad a breeze to operate.
The unit is rugged, compact and built to withstand the rigours of the road. Battery operated, lightweight and sleek, its metal construction allows you to confidently take it with you wherever it's required. You'll be able to produce and play sounds while you travel too thanks to a built-in headphone port.
Integrated USB-MIDI support allows you to use the SPD One Electro Percussion Pad as a digital controller for your DAW. You'll be able to add realistic MIDI percussion to your existing or new productions.
Import Custom Samples
Using USB, you'll be able to import your own custom WAV samples (anything up to five seconds long). These can then be altered in the same way that you would with the preset sounds.
