Percussion adds real spice to any performance and the ability to play a vast amount of percussive instruments is incredibly appealing but can sometimes mean lugging round hefty bags and long set-up times. Roland have come up with an excellent digital solution in the shape of the Roland SPD::One Percussion Pad. This exceptional little instrument can be played by hand, sticks or feet and packs in a wide range of popular percussive instruments.
Simple setup, powerful performance
The SPD::One Percussion Pad requires no technical know-how whatsoever. Simply power with mains or battery, place on a table-top, attach to your existing hardware with the included attachment and mounting screws, or place on the floor for foot operation.
Once in position, you can begin playing superb performances with the choice of 22 realistic percussion sounds, including snare and kick drums, hi-hats, cymbals, shakers, tambourines, and more! The SPD One Percussion Pad makes an excellent performance machine on its own or alongside your acoustic percussion rig.
Built in sampler
So there are some amazing sounds in the SPD::One Percussion Pad but what if you want a sound that's personal to you? Thanks to the built in USB connectivity you can import WAV audio files up to five seconds long simply by dragging and dropping your files. The simple controls for pitch, reverb and delay can then be used on your sound just like the preset sounds.
Hit the road
Roland have made sure that the SPD::One Percussion Pad is ready to hit the road... literally! Built with a solid metal casing and a responsive yet tough rubber trigger pad, this is one small digital instrument that can boost your percussive performances to new heights.
