Roland DDR-30
I bought my DDR30 in 1985!!
Its LCD screen isn't that great, but it is indestructible!
After 22 years of operation module has not aged a day: everything is working properly

Before that, I had a Klone Kit 2 (fragile) and used a Simmons (nice but overpriced) for three concert  (all before 1985). 
The DDR30 was very expensive at the time, over 20,000 Fr. Francs, but it was the latest tech! (equivalent of TD12)

Although deprecated in terms of technology, it is nevertheless MIDI (to control a sampler module for example) and possesses many vintage and original sounds.
In addition, working on wavetables is possible. Wavetable geeks, take notes....
I think this module deserves attention.
It possesses 6 XLP inputs for connecting six pads or sensors.

Roland DDR-30
2 rack units. 1983? (In pif)

Connectivity: Mix out L + R (jacks) + Indiv outs (6 jacks) + (Pad) Trigger ins (6 XLR) + MIDI in / out / thru + Shift Pedal Bank & Pedal Set Shift (Jacks x 2)

Editable patches: 6 voices: Kick, snare & 4 different toms. Choice of 4 sounds per channel (12 bit sample (?)). Editing sound: Pitch, Gate, Env, Eq. Adjusting the sensitivity and decay of pitch bend,velocity sensitivity adj., pad sensitivity adj. (XLR trig), etc. ..

64 patches (drum sets) x 4 banks. memory catridge (c64 (?))

This machine is an alien.

Dpart to this is the "brains" of a drum kit ELECTRONIC dveloppe by Rol, pads send a simple electrical signal (5v?) Ds xlr to drive the six sounds. Normally, any sound amplification should be fine enough (test)

The sounds are powerful trs (12 bit) and grungy, particulirement the Bass drum (boooom) and the snare, but a ds style rather special, digital old style (quite tr-909).

Triggers can send notes (configurable) the midi out, midi channel and different! So actually a converter trig => midinote with the VLOC (ossi test, you say (or not if I forget) I know qd). I was wildly excites me all a. sisi.

Full sysex! G Ah finally found the manual (thank you for giving us FINALLY roland's manuals download). H b can be any custom settings CONTRL sounds by noon. Y takes a little sweat to configure the Controller and arpond not up to the nearest second, but the fact. Bcp and change the sound settings and crushing live.

And then the little turquoise retro Lumire its "desktop" 16 x 15 character digits are so soft ... When I look into your eyes she smiled at me (but my shrink not believe me).

Plutt electro, sounds very very proactive and flexible. Big sounds Transperent all. But beware: the kit is quite a limit BD (Groose case), an SD (snare) and 4 Toms Different. No HiHats, clave, etc. cymbal. The sounds are really nikel Snare and bassdrum (Squid is not nothing). Trs special I think. 12 bit it seems. inyourface. bcp low. IDAL snare by layer. idalie bass at all. lo-fi. bcp sound DIFFERENT chgmts possible with the parameter. The most succulent may be the chgmt a drum set the other live, seamless sound, yum.

All dpend of use. It's a hot: do not put in any hands. Otherwise she is bored ...
Well, good overall. or j'achte!

PS: It's not me who made the announcement to sell 199 euros, swear. What I have not said that I sold not mine (this price l. All the same ...
