World Class Sounds
The OCTAPAD SPD-30 includes more than 600 drum and percussion sounds from around the world suited to cover any musical style.  Arranged in 50 kits, the sounds are dynamic and expressive, and range from traditional to contemporary to exotic.  You can customize the sounds with the onboard controls for tuning, muffling, attack, pitch sweep, and more.  You can also layer two sounds per pad to create an infinite number of sound combinations.

Based on Roland's world-leading effects technology, the SPD-30's multi-effects engine will take your performances to another level.  There are 30 types of internal multi-effects onboard, plus EQ, limiter, and seven Ambience types.

Phrase Loop Function
The onboard Phrase Loop function is a powerful creative tool that lets you quickly record your playing in real time.  You can overdub up to three layers per phrase, and store 50 phrases internally.  Connect optional footswitches for seamless recording and hands-free operation.  You can also save your phrase data to optional USB memory.

Advanced Triggering Technology
The OCTAPAD SPD-30 benefits from Roland's most advanced V-Drum triggering technology.  Each pad is a separate, isolated unit, providing the ultimate in sensitivity with complete crosstalk rejection.  In addition, you can connect four dual-trigger inputs, plus a hi-hat controller (compatible with Roland FD-8, VH-11) to create a mini drum set with external pads (Roland KD-/PD-/PDX-/CY-series).  The OCTAPAD SPD-30 is also compatible with Roland RT-Series acoustic drum triggers for even more flexibility.
