The Roland SPD::ONE ELECTRO Percussion Pad is part of a new series that brings compact digital percussion to a whole new level. Any musician can incorporate electronic sounds into their performance with ease, using the ELECTRO to access 22 sounds from fat snare hits, claps and cowbells, to many more awesome samples. Not only that, but you can even import your own original samples to one of the 12 internal sound banks for total control.
The pad for everyone, everywhere
The Roland SPD::ONE ELECTRO is designed to get you up and running with minimum fuss, anywhere your music takes you. Whether you're practising at home, recording in the studio, jamming with friends, producing music on your DAW, or performing live, Roland have all bases covered with the dynamic little powerhouse.
Whether you're using drumsticks, your hands, or even your feet, the pad is designed to respond with the utmost sensitivity to the pressure applied. Using the two controls on the side of the unit, the sensitivity and trigger threshold can be attenuated to match your desired level of control. As with their flagship SPD controllers, the solid feel of the pad is matched by a natural "rebound" feel that all percussionists and drummers will love. Standing performers can use it as a stompbox-style instrument to trigger samples, or the unit can be mounted to drum hardware or mic stands for hand-level access.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO can be powered using batteries when on the road, as well as mains power. If you’re recording at home or producing music via a DAW, the USB connection can be utilised to connect the unit directly to your computer. You can import WAV audio files up to five seconds in length, which can then be modified via the built-in controls.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO is packed with 22 sounds that are sampled from their legendary TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines, with the ability to adjust the pitch of each instrument with ease. Not only that, but you can add reverb and delay within the unit itself, tailoring the sample to your stylistic wishes. You can even adjust sound levels and the balance for concise monitor mixes, so that you are always on top of your game.
Roland's rigorous testing
Roland's SPD sample pads are highly regarded due to their robust build quality that is combined with hyper sensitive pad responsiveness. To ensure that the SPD::ONE series lived up to their predecessor's performance abilities, Roland applied their stringent protocols to the hardware. Following countless hours of rigorous testing, the ELECTRO can truly take pride in boasting about its outstanding resilience and durability.
