Roland's SPD One Kick Percussion Pad allows you to apply high-quality kick drum and other percussion sounds to your studio work or live performances. Packed full with 22 expressive, dynamic, natural drum sounds - ranging from kick drums, cowbells, shakers and a whole lot more - you've got all the tools here required to enhance your productions or 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.
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 Kick 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.
