Integrate Samples into Your Live Drum Kit

If you want a simple way to incorporate electronic drums into your acoustic kit, look no further than the Roland SPD-SX. This sampling drum pad provides easy sample creation and playback tools, along with cool effects, expressive playability, lots of internal memory, USB functionality, included software for managing your samples, and much more. Tap it with your fingers or hit it with drumsticks -- do whatever feels natural. You'll like having the drum pad as part of your DJ booth, keyboard rig, percussion setup, or your existing drum kit -- be it acoustic or electronic. Whether you intend to trigger samples, loops, or complete backing tracks in the studio or on stage, Roland's SPD-SX is there to lend a helping hand.

Hands-On Control Meets Advanced Triggering and Sampling Technology

Giving you hands-on control of your one-shots, loops, and backing tracks, the SPD-SX sports nine rubber pads, two independent real-time control knobs, and four dedicated effect buttons, plus a large backlit LCD to view settings and programs in any lighting condition. You'll always know what's up with the pads -- when you trigger sample phrases, each pad's companion LED lights up to show when the pads are in play. Like level meters on a mixing board, the LEDs change illumination strength according to audio-level activity; on stage or off, the high-contrast red divider lines help you see the pad zones clearly.

Highly Playable and Functional

With this sampling drum pad, it's easy to incorporate audio samples into your performance. The SPD-SX offers individual click output routing, dedicated volume controls, Pad Check function, individual Sub Out, and other must-have features for drummers and percussionists alike.

Master Effects Engine Onboard

Built-in effects let you tweak your samples in real-time. Roland's SPD-SX has three multi-effects units: one master unit and two units that are assignable per kit. Four front-panel buttons and two control knobs let you adjust the filter, delay, short looper, and user-assignable effect in real time, for a dynamic, creative performance.

Easy Multi-Pad Sampling

The drum pad also lets you create multisampled phrases and pad maps on the fly. While audio streams in from an external audio player or computer (via 1/4" analog stereo inputs or USB), just strike each pad at the appropriate start or end points and the sample will be automatically truncated and assigned to that pad.

Storage for Your Sample Collection

You can store and carry your entire sample library in the SPD-SX, since the sampling drum pad has an impressive 2 GB of internal memory. That's enough space to house approximately 360 minutes of audio or 10,000 files at 44.1 kHz/16-bit mono. When you want to add more samples to the set, use the SPD-SX's built-in USB ports to import audio files from USB flash memory.

Manage Your Audio Files with SPD-SX Wave Manager Software

The included SPD-SX Wave Manager software app also lets you import audio files directly from computer via USB, assign the samples to each pad, and organize the samples to suit your setup.
