The pad for everyone, everywhere
The Roland SPD::ONE ELECTRO is a compact unit that can be used as a stompbox-style pad, or mounted to any stands or hardware via a clamp accessory. As with other units in the SPD::ONE series, operation is simple and seamless, so that you'll be up and running in next to no time. Whether you're practising at home, jamming with friends, producing music via your favourite DAW, or taking to the live stage, Roland have incorporated all their know-how to make the KICK an absolute gem. Street performers will love the fact that you can smash out a beat with your feet, whilst your fingers let loose on your instrument of choice - awesome!
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. The SPD::ONE KICK 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.
Huge percussive sounds
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO boasts with 22 sounds that are ready and waiting. However, you can also add your own samples to the 12 internal sound banks to tailor the unit to your specific demands. Not only that, but you can add reverb and distortion 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.
