The Roland RT-MicS Hybrid Drum Module makes the prospect of a hybrid setup far less daunting. Rest assured that it’s simple to incorporate this compact module into your acoustic kit with no extra gear to transform your snare and toms into versatile digital pads. Complete with eight preloaded sounds from hand-clap to snare, the ability to import sampled sounds from a computer via USB or use the onboard mic to capture and process the acoustic drum sound, the RT-MicS is a simple way to enhance your kit.
Layer Acoustic and Digital Sounds
It’s simple to trigger any of the eight preloaded sounds - just hit the drum with the RT-MicS attached and your selected sound will be played simultaneously. But layering sounds is where it gets interesting, with one hit giving you both a sample-based sound and a raw acoustic sound. The enhancement for your snare or tom sound is limitless.
You can import up to eight sounds (10 seconds max) via USB to really get creative. You could mix your acoustic snare and toms with sound effects, or layer them with other instruments that you can’t bring to the gig, like gongs and timpani. Need that killer sample from a studio recording for the perfect live recreation? The RT-MicS can do that for you.
Your kit, customised
So you have an incredible snare but imagine if you could take that sound and customise it even further. The RT-MicS makes it easy, attaching to the rim of your acoustic drums and recording their sound with the built in mic. Having captured the original acoustic tone, you can add external effects like delay and compression. Within just a few minutes, you could have a unique drum sound that can make you stand out from other players.
Flexible Output Options
With open-ended output options, you could output the electronic sound and captured snare/tom sound separately, or mix them both together for the prefect blend. Both volume levels are adjustable for fast balancing during performance, while the electronic sound is muted by simply holding down the large tone select button. The speed at which you can setup with the Roland RT-MicS Hybrid Drum Module ensures incredible hybrid drumming capability anytime and because it can also be powered from a 9V battery, you can use it anywhere too.
