Roland Percussion Pad Features:

  • 2 GB internal memory, enabling approximately 360minutes of sampling (mono) without requiring external memory
  • Nine velocity-sensitive rubber pads, two externaldual-trigger inputs
  • Easy capturing and assignment of audio data throughMulti-Pad Sampling
  • Three units of multi-effects onboard, with tworeal-time control knobs and four dedicated effect buttons
  • Individual Pad Dynamics indicators show pad status andaudio-level activity during performance
  • Expanded USB functionality (USB Mass Storage, USBMIDI/AUDIO, USB Memory)
  • Wave Manager software included for easily importing,assigning, and organizing samples
  • Large backlit LCD

The SPD-SX is equipped with nine highly sensitive rubber pads with two independent real-time control knobs and four dedicated effect buttons.  Roland's most advanced triggering technology ensures the ultimate in accuracy and fully dynamic performance, while a large backlit LCD provides easy-to-read data in all varieties of environments.  Each pad has a companion LED that illuminates to show the pad's status.  When you trigger sample phrases, the LEDs remain lit to show you which pads are in play and which are not.  In addition, the LEDs change illumination strength according to audio-level activity (similar to level meters on a mixing board).  The high-contrast red divider lines help you see the pad zones clearly onstage.

Today, increasing numbers of drummers and percussionists need to incorporate audio samples into their performance.  The SPD-SX will satisfy their increasing requirements with essential features such as individual click output routing, dedicated volume controls, Pad Check function, individual Sub Out, and more.

The SPD-SX has three multi-effects units onboard: one master unit and two units that are assignable per kit.  The master effects engine lets you perform in real time like a DJ using the dedicated front-panel controls.  Get your hands on the filter, delay, short looper, and user-assignable effect — all of which can be creatively adjusted with the four front-panel buttons and two control knobs.

There's more to the SPD-SX than meets the eye.  A powerful-yet-friendly lineup of features has been built into this little powerhouse, such as Multi-Pad Sampling.  While audio streams in from an external audio player or computer (via Audio In or USB), simply strike each pad at the appropriate start/end points, and the sample will be automatically truncated and assigned to that pad.  It's a fast, friendly way to create multi-sampled phrases and pad maps.

The SPD-SX's generous internal memory (2 GB) lets you store and carry your entire sample library inside.  With no external memory required, you can house approximately 360 minutes of audio (10,000 files) at 16-bit, 44.1 kHz, mono.  The built-in USB ports let you directly import audio files from USB flash memory.  The bundled SPD-SX Wave Manager software app lets you import audio files directly from computer via USB, assign the samples to each pad, and organize the thousands of samples efficiently.
