Easily Transport an Arsenal of Extra Instruments to the Gig
Can you imagine bringing a timpani or full-sized gong to a bar gig? With 22 faithful reproductions of drum and percussion sounds onboard, the Roland SPD::ONE PERCUSSION makes adding great sounding accompaniments simple, portable, and convenient. Incorporate instruments into your production that you wouldn’t normally bring, including that timpani and gong. And since even the smallest hand percussion instruments would require a microphone for amplification, the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION represents the least complicated way to expand the tonal palette of your entire repertoire.
Place it Anywhere You Like — No Shoehorn Required!
At just 2-1/4” high, 5-9/16” wide, and 6-5/16” deep, the ultra-compact SPD ONE PERCUSSION can easily fit into any stage or studio setup without having to move your existing gear. Place it on a tabletop, the floor, or any solid surface. Clamp it to a hi-hat stand, cymbal stand, tom stand, or even a mic stand** using the supplied mounting adapter. You can even roam the stage with the SPD ONE PERCUSSION, since it’s capable of operating on just four AA batteries.
**Fits stand rod diameters from 8.0-12.7 mm
Hassle-Free Setup and Operation
With a simple user interface consisting of just four knobs and two dials, the Roland SPD ONE PERCUSSION is a snap for just about anyone to operate. Simply select a sound by turning the Bank knob to one of 12 positions; then strike, slap, or stomp. Everything you need to customize your sounds is right there at your fingertips via four knobs located on the top panel. Select instrument variations; fine-tune the pitch; adjust effects; balance levels — even on the fly. There are no complex submenus or clumsy button sequences to disturb the flow of your performance.
Customize Your tonal palette with User Sample Import via USB
You can’t really say that a digital percussion pad is truly customizable unless you can import your own sounds. Roland gives you that power and flexibility with the SPD ONE PERCUSSION. Use the USB port to import your own WAV samples of up to five seconds duration* by simply dragging and dropping your files, then store them in one of 12 internal sound banks. You can even modify your samples just like any of the internal sounds using the tuning and effect control knobs.
*If you need to use samples that are longer than five seconds, check out the dedicated Roland SPD::ONE WAV PAD, which can handle up to 4 GB of WAV audio.
Play Software-Based Drum and Percussion Sounds via USB or MIDI
Are you using a computer DAW and wish that you could actually play software-based drum and percussion sounds manually? The Roland SPD ONE PERCUSSION can be connected to a Mac or PC via its onboard USB port and used as a pad controller for your computer DAW. Helpful hint: Turn off your software’s quantization to achieve an even more realistic “live performance feel” for your drum tracks.
