Powered by the SuperNATURAL sound engine the Roland TD-15 Sound Module brings a more natural and realistic experience to the mid-range market. The module also offers up the perfect platform for learners with its collection of teaching aids.
In comparison to its younger brother, the TD-11, the Roland TD-15 is more powerful and has more of everything. You have twice the amount of onboard kits: 50-preset/50 user and 10 multi effect types. Alongside this, the TD15 has assignable CLICK out and illuminated ring/kit buttons and the QUICK EDIT buttons giving you instant control over tuning, muffling, and strainer.
Along with the enhanced drumming experience provided by the TD-30-derived SuperNATURAL concept the Roland TD15 Sound Module also utilises Behaviour Modelling Technology to take you even further. By modelling the distinct behaviour of the relevant instruments you receive a better response and a sound that is more expressive and natural.
Practice & Performance Tools
Roland has catered for beginners and intermediate players with the inclusion of various practice aids and performance extras with the Roland TD-15 Sound Module.
The Roland TD-15 Sound Module offers realistic backing tracks and loops for you to jam along with. Also, if you don’t fancy any of the onboard selections, you can throw your own music (in WAV, MP3 format) onto a USB flash drive and plug that into the Roland TD-15 and play along with whatever you want.
The Roland TD-15 Sound Module allows you to do more than just play tracks, however, with fully-fledged controls allowing you to practice the way you want:
- Mix the balance of your drumming with the backing track
- Change song tempo with Speed Control
- Loop specific sections with A-B repeat
On top of allowing playback of backing tracks the Roland TD-15 Sound Module also offers its own training facilities in the form of Coach Mode. This onboard teacher gives you a selection of exercises to improve your play, including: “Time Check,” “Quiet Count,” and “Warm Ups” modes.
The Roland TD 15 Sound Module also comes fully equipped with an onboard recorder function: QUICK REC. This seemingly small addition is a godsend as it allows you to quickly record your performance and listen back, to hear what you need to work on, as well as where you’re improving.
The Roland TD-15 Drum Sound Module makes interfacing with your computer easy with just a single USB cable. Along with transmitting audio and MIDI data this also allows for connection to the Roland DT-1 V-Drums Tutor, V-Drums Friend Jam, and/or DAW software.
