Upgrade Your Current V-Drums Kit to the Latest Pro Standard
Creating your perfect drum set-up takes time, and not every drummer wants to start the journey again with a brand-new kit. The TD-50DP Digital Upgrade Pack allows V-Drums past and present to be upgraded; whether you’re currently playing a TD-30, TD-20X, TD-20 or even the original TD-10 generation of V-Drums. Upgrading your module, snare and ride cymbal with the TD-50DP pack gives you brand-new sounds, the ability to add you own WAV samples, the lowest latency, and the advanced playability of the latest digital multi-sensor triggering bringing your V-Drums setup right up-to-date. If your current V-Pads and V-Cymbals have a ¼ inch stereo jack connection, your existing pad set-up will work seamlessly with the TD-50DP. In fact, almost any generation of V-Drums can get a new lease of life with the TD-50DP Digital Upgrade Pack.
Dynamic Prismatic Sound Modeling Brings Your Drumming to Life
Great drummers demand great performance, and the brand new TD-50 module is the heart of the drum set —a powerful new sound module whose original Prismatic Sound Modeling technology means that every element of your playing style is caught and conveyed in thrilling detail. Working alongside the TD-50DP’s newly developed snare and ride cymbal pads—which feature our most advanced trigger-sensing technology yet—the TD-50’s high-resolution processing gives you the most lifelike, resonant, and expressive sounds you’ll hear from an electronic kit.
Customize Your Sound for Live Sessions and Studio Work
A variety of musical scenarios are no problem with the TD-50, which offers a choice of onboard kits to suit every session. This advanced module also supports deep sound customization, including basic adjustment of heads and shells, layering of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience. For tailored performance, a compressor and three-band EQ can be controlled for each pad individually, while three independent multi-effect sections let you treat specific drums with 30 effect types such as delay, flanger, saturator, and many others. The two-band multi-compressor and four-band equalizer on the output let you change the overall dynamics and tonal balance, depending on whether you’re in the studio or on stage. And with the new Snapshot feature, you can quickly assess and compare any edits to your sounds before making permanent changes.
Play Genuine Snare Techniques with the New 14-inch PD-140DS
Working alongside the TD-50 sound module is the PD-140DS Digital Snare pad, which brings a new level of expression to your snare work. A brand-new, three-layer mesh head is fitted to a standard size 14-inch shell, providing natural rebound and feel that’s instantly familiar to play. And now, thanks to Roland’s newly developed multi-element sensor system, your strokes across every area of the pad are more closely detected, and your playing dynamics captured in minute detail. In addition, traditional cross stick technique is automatically detected as the pad senses your hand and adjusts accordingly. With the unmatched response of the PD-140DS, every snare nuance is natural, detailed, and bursting with character.
Express Yourself with the New CY-18DR Ride
Cymbal choice is a serious business, and the new TD-50DP includes the new CY-18DR Digital Ride. Expressive players will benefit from the 18-inch size and familiar motion during performance. Meanwhile, the high-resolution, multi-sensor system within the cymbal pad continuously detects every stroke from edge to bell, working alongside the TD-50 module for dynamics and response that have never before been heard from a cymbal pad. Put the CY-18DR through its paces with techniques from cymbal legato to soft bell strokes and hear the detail for yourself. You can even mute the bow with a finger touch!
Play with Your Own WAV Files and Record Easily to a DAW
As a creative drummer, you’ll love the TD-50’s open-ended connectivity, which lets inspiration flow in both directions. Using the module’s SD card slot, it’s easy to trigger your own WAV files using any Roland drum pads connected to the module, and you can loop or layer them alongside the internal sounds while controlling volume and tone via the TD-50’s front panel. When you write a great groove, simply connect the TD-50 module to a computer via USB for multi-track recording direct to your favorite DAW. Up to 10 channels can be recorded separately, then easily edited for tone color and more. There’s even a choice of audio sampling formats: 48 kHz, 96 kHz, and the standard 44.1kHz.
Hit the Stage Faster with Balanced Connections to a PA
If you play live every night, the TD-50DP will help avoid the time and effort of a lengthy setup. The TD-50 is the first V-Drums module to feature an XLR stereo master out and eight TRS direct outs, allowing for a balanced connection to a PA system. Assigning a pad to any of the individual outputs is simple, while convenient master/headphones volume controls and group faders balance the output levels instantly. You can also assign the volume to control headphones only, perfect for adjusting the monitor level without affecting the PA signal.
