Roland TD-50X V-Drums Sound Module

Feel the difference with the Roland TD-50X, a drum sound module with Prismatic Sound Modeling for a deeper level of personal expression with every drum hit.
The TD-50X is the most advanced V-Drums module ever, featuring over 900 premium sounds and full support for Roland's groundbreaking digital snare, ride, and hi-hat pads. Prismatic Sound Modeling brings you the most acoustic-like experience available in electronic drumming, offering incredible depth, dimension, and detail with authentic sound and natural response. Three inputs are provided for digital pads, along with a wide array of analog trigger inputs for the entire range of traditional pads. Deep editing tools make it easy to craft your personal sound, while extensive pro connectivity lets you tackle everything from multitrack computer recording to full-scale arena shows.

Prismatic Sound Modeling: Feel the Difference
The Prismatic Sound Modeling in the TD-50X makes electronic drums come to life like no other system can, infusing multi-layer samples recorded in world-class studios with sophisticated behavior modeling techniques refined over more than two decades. Inspired by a prism--which refracts a single ray of light into every color in the spectrum--this revolutionary approach produces an unlimited array of sonic colors with every stick hit. The initial attack is followed by a complex mix of rich overtones, just like playing acoustic drums and cymbals. You can feel the sound changing in reaction to your expression, creating that magical, interactive bond that fully immerses you in the emotion of the moment. From subtle ghost notes and detailed articulations to the loudest and read more most intense playing, your drumming has no boundaries with the TD-50X.

Roland Digital Pads: A Revolution in Electronic Drumming
The TD-50X features three special USB trigger inputs for Roland digital pads, allowing you to take full advantage of Prismatic Sound Modeling's vast expressive potential. Multi-sensor detection in the PD140-DS snare, CY-18DR ride, and VH-14D hi-hat pads works with lightning-fast processing in the module to bring authentic acoustic nuance and detail to these core kit pieces. All your playing techniques translate seamlessly, such as subtly touching the ride to mute the sound or switching at will between head, rimshot, and cross stick playing on the snare.
