Roland SPD ONE Percussion
The Roland SPD ONE percussion is a new type of digital percussion pad. Allowing you to add authentic percussion sounds to your performances. Containing 22 realistic percussion sounds, including snares, hi-hats, cymbals, shakers, tambourines, and more. As well as the option to import your own original audio data through one of the 12 soundbanks.
Then, once you’re ready to go, the SPD::ONE Percussion’s robust-yet sensitive pad can be played with your drumsticks, hands or feet. While trigger threshold settings can be easily adjusted using the intuitive controls.
Power your SPD ONE through either batteries or AC. Making it a portable pad that can be used either on the floor or a tabletop. Even mount it to your rig or drum setup using the included adapter. Operation is simple even for non-technical musicians, with the four easy-to-use knobs o the control panel. Allowing you to change the sound, volume, balance, and more. So whether you’re a drummer, percussion player, guitarist, DJ, or vocalist. The SPD::ONE Kick is a simple and flexible way to expand your sound and performance. Another innovative addition to the Roland range.
Digital Percussion Pad You Can Play with Sticks, Hands, or Feet
Drummers and percussionists love the solid feel and natural rebound. While guitarists can confidently stomp on the unit for four-on-the-floor beats. And practically any musician can play sounds by hand without fear of sore palms and fingers at the end of the night.
Take Instruments to the Gig That You Can’t Fit in Your Bag, from Shakers to Timpani
Each onboard sound is a faithful reproduction of an acoustic sound. So you can use instruments that you wouldn’t normally bring along. Including snares, gongs, and even timpani. While a shaker may be small and transportable, it still requires a microphone to be amplified on the stage; the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION can provide your shaker sound in one song and a completely different instrument in the next song of the set. Adding great sounding accompaniments has never been this flexible, simple, or portable.
Easily Fits Into Any Instrument Setup
The SPD::ONE PERCUSSION is compact enough to fit into your existing instrument setup without needing to move your other gear. With the included mounting adapter, you can easily clamp the pad to a hi-hat, cymbal, or tom stand,* or even a mic stand. Alternately, the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION can be played without mounting it to anything at all—simply place it on the floor, a tabletop, or any solid surface.
*Fits percussion stand rod diameters from 8.0-12.7 mm.
Portable and Built for the Road
You can take the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION wherever you want, thanks to its compact size and battery operation. It’s lightweight enough to be dropped into a bag or instrument case, and robust enough to travel thanks to its metal-body construction. You can even play and produce your own sounds on the move via headphones, and include them in your set list that night.
Easy Control Using Just Four Knobs
Operating the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION is very simple. There are no complex submenus or button sequences—just select your sounds by turning the bank selector to any of the 12 positions, and hit the pad to play. With just four main knobs on the front panel, everything you need is at hand, including the ability to customize sounds, adjust overall volume, and balance levels on the fly.
Enhance Your Performances with User Sample Import
The SPD::ONE PERCUSSION is loaded with great sounds, but sometimes you just need to use your own samples. Via USB, you can import WAV audio files up to five seconds long simply by dragging and dropping your files. Allowing you to then modify your sounds just like any of the rest. Using the tuning and effect control knobs. If you need to use sounds longer than five seconds, check out the dedicated SPD::ONE WAV PAD, which can handle up to 4 GB of WAV audio.
Compact MIDI Controller for DAW Music Production
Additionally, thanks to its built-in USB-MIDI support, the Roland SPD ONE PERCUSSION can be used as a compact digital pad controller for a computer DAW. This provides a great way to play software-based sounds and enhance your productions with realistic MIDI percussion tracks.
