Roland SPD-SX packed with really useful features and IO

Product Review

I have tried a number of different pad controllers and finally broke down and got the Roland SPD SX from American Musical Supply. I'm glad I did. It covers a lot of bases. It works stand alone; it's companion application the SPD-SX Wave Manager makes connection to your DAW simple for stocking it full of your own wav files and for easily seeing what's in there without having to scroll through a gazillion sounds on the unit itself. The sampler section is excellent, as one would expect of a Roland unit. The Sampler functions in stereo as well as mono and you have the ability to chose either a mic level or line level input from a knob on the back. Re-sampling a performance into a new wav is easy and intuitive. The layout of the display on front is very well thought out and easy to get to you as you playing. One thing I particularly like and find very time-saving, is how fast you can change the midi note number on individual pads. I've made "Kits" with no sounds in them, but with the specific midi note assignments, so I can use the unit just as a controller of other software drum applications. It seems like every company choses how they want to assign midi note numbers to particular drum sounds, so having the ability to make templates for my different drum software in the Roland is one of the reasons I ended up getting it. The reason I gave it only 4 stars: 1.) The audio it supports is restricted to 44.1 kHz 16 bit. In today's landscape, you'd think that making it at least 44.1 kHz 24 bit would be a no brainer. 2.) The useful addition of a dedicated port for a thumb drive is great, but it can only recognize a drive 32 GB or less. When it wasn't recognizing my thumb drive, I had to go online to find out why. It doesn't point that out in the manual. 3.) The unit doesn't come pre loaded with that many sounds. I actually prefer to have the space for my own sounds, but if you're expecting hundreds of outstanding drum samples with the unit, you might be underwhelmed with the offering. That said, the Roland SPD-SX does what it does very well, and its a lot of fun to use! I can't think of another pad controller or analog drum machine that covers this much ground. Its a truly modern hybrid piece of gear. I'm glad I finally got one.

I own a few of these. They have been on tour and have held up well. Lots of storage. We send it out with other triggers. It has great sounds. We have been real happy with this unit. I own a Backline company and the SPD-SX is always in demand!
