Roland TD-9 Module
(Originally written by achka/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

I replaced my DTXPLORER with a TD9KX 2 weeks ago. With headphones: super sound and very comfortable pads. With a P.A. system: great punch, kick and toms with a full sound... In short, I'm ecstatic (except maybe for the metronome which started up on its own during two songs) Each kit can be edited (sound, drum depth, volume, damping, reverb, etc.)!
The sound module is user-friendly, the demo songs are very good, the rack is quite stable and the cymbal holders integrated in the rack reduce vibrations a lot.

It carries a hefty price tag but I think it's worth the money!!!!!!

Roland TD-9 Module
I use it for 8 months.

I tried to actually explore the yamaha dt 3 (I think), the TD12 and TD20 (just for fun because very expensive).

What I like:
the sound quality (unlike the previous review) and 50 presets allow users to create multiple sets depending on the style (for me, rock, pop, metal and triphop). You can adjust the reverb of each sound, the volume ...

the touch pads (mesh skin) very nice and true to an acoustic.

single side use.

being able bnacher a USB key and then playing with samples.

I dislike:
nothing except that I just put myself in the double pedal and there's a fair bit on the bass drum pad, too small for my taste. It aut change to adopt the same as the TD12.

recording, direct connect is by seeing it wrong, it is better to plug into a PA and then transplanted with microphones.

To summarize, at 2000 €, hard to find both acoustic in my opinion ... excellent for work at home and even for the concerts, it allows for many possibilities.

Roland TD-9 Module
Rcent owner of a TD9 KX I prcise Premire it's my drumkit, and although still m'tant INTERESTED percussion, I practice a great beginners!

How long have you use it?
For 1 week.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
1. The skin mesh extremely enjoyable compartment plastic pads (any brand). We can rgler tension skins, but with no preferences for the moment I left the factory rglage.
2. The ergonomics of the stand, his esthtisme, its stability and modularity. For my size (1.72 m) I had no problem to install DIFFERENT lments my convenience. As I play prfre dcrois I install the left and the Crash Ride right without big problems (there is enough wire, even if it is trslg rately tense).
3. The module is very simple to use. We're in the bathroom 2 times 3 movements and I plussoie Previous notices about it. I just used the manual to see the exact format for saving files. WAV to go to the music without drumkit rcuprs on the web in MP3 via USB key (direct connection to the module). By the way it is possible that some former cls USB are not recognized. A 1 GB gnrique could never be DTECT, while two others for my cls (128 MB and 2 GB) recognition Has IMMEDIATE.
4. Intgr 50 songs cover a wide range of styles DIFFERENT, probably where you will find happiness. FINALLY the songs sound with "real" instruments, not like the type MIDI (I dtest! Even those of G ***** 5 PRO are not convincing my opinion). Although we can remove some sr instruments Obviously the drumkit to accompany everything with a style more or less hsitant
5. Function Scope: prcdemment said as it is right to correct our rate card, for each element of the drumkit. Everything is clear, with a Zoom (prcis more visual, but more Reduces note range) or DZoom (inverse) of a step from the initial display.
6. The rglage DIFFERENT lments of the drumkit (w cymbals, bass drum pad type etc ...) seems trs friendly even if for now I'm me COIL, UN srieusement not.

1. I t tonn of low power sound of cymbals. Although not of exprience in the Contents lments I think some (like the snare) are better rendered in the volume in relation to each other than say cymbals (ride and crash) . This may be a rglage do, but as said prcdemment, I have not had time to look for a prs. Prcise I feel that this is not due to the headphone: I have a monitoring headphones ****** P 800 which I think he filled his office perfectly. As such I used to dpart headphone closed for wireless MUCH TV or PC games, but j'tais have to turn up the bottom (on the module and the headphone !) to have made an "almost correct". With the monitoring headphones, ds half volume, the impressions of power are indeed with the quality of his too! Half the volume any more, I do not want to gun down my ears 34 years
EDIT: After a few SETTING THE I got to have volume rendering as expected. Rsultat impeccable '
2. heuuu ... I l sche for 5 min. EDIT: not anymore. I confirm that the noise impact on the hi-hat, cymbals and bass drum especially can quickly become a source of dsagrments for the company or the neighbors. All dpend the thickness of the walls, floor type and good sound insulation sr ...

Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Just the TD3 and TD6, with only the snare skin mesh. Toms pads disposed me ds Premire strikes the wrists and threatened to an DPOS Pravis of grve for infinite duration. My t tests were relatively short (just 1 / 4 of an hour each), and therefore unreliable for comparison prcises.

How do you report qualitprix?
Trs good. For beginners like me it's more than enough.

Exprience with, you will do again this choice?
To edit later, but for now I am fully satisfied the drumkit. A real rgal!

Note: I made ​​the order on a German site trs experienced users of this site powered speakers The MA BOX 1520 MKII for my sound to TD9. I saw that there was an open topic on the forum, I'll post my impressions 1ST.

Roland TD-9 Module
I possde the new Roland electronic drums, the TD-9 for several days. This is my electronic drum Premire even if it is many months that I tried regularly. The models I have always prfr Roland other brands, history of feeling. The TD-9 is a good compromise for me between the high end (TD-12 / TD-20) unaffordable to the report of my qualities and ambitions of drummers and low-end MODELS HD1 / TD3 and TD6 that I felt limited in sounds.
The special is the 50 kits INTERESTED module that offers a good range of sounds DIFFERENT (Acoustic, Jazz, brush, rock, funk ,...). It is not worth the virtual batteries (I shall return), but it is enjoyable and varied enough to not get bored. There are always idiots expensive mixes Kits Roland with voices and sounds weird but good has his kids can have fun for 5 minutes.
The possibility of revolutions of the machine are apprciables. It is a form to add a ride pedals V12 dclenchement triple (three sounds on the same cymbal instead of the two basic). The hi-hat can be replaced by a V11 MODEL for those who want to keep a subtle CONTRL semi open positions. Personally I play left foot as fairly open closed limit positions me well enough.
The snare loop is really enjoyable (as always with Roland). + Reduces the size that requires a traditional snare drum game + prcis but trainer. Those who will miss the skin may hit the circle. They then ride dclencheront whose volumes are slightly lev in basic kits but can be arranged.
As for the modules is tom PD8, a classic Roland. It's okay but not forcment trs sensual in terms of hits.

The installation of the drumkit is very easy. In just 30 minutes dballe silent install and play prt. The systems are easy to rglages, strong and effective.

Finally, the module is extremely simple to use. I barely opened the manual. This is great it is in English. Those who want the French version can be found on the website of Roland.
The selection of kits is easy. The rglage lments of the kit too. We can work on the stamps and the tuning of fts and cymbals. We can not intervene on the depth or the matrial of fts as the TD12 and 20.
We can register, but it is not a vritable sequencer.
There accompaniment program to allow for fun that are pretty cool. IDAL is to s'chauffer. Finally Scope function allows you to view if you play on time or cot. If you are not likely it's a good learning tool. In my case, it seems that I tend to play a lgre ahead of time.

The point ngatif me but it's the same in all models is the noise dsagrable plastic sticks on the pads. You have to play with headphones to the sound if it donf pnible. Neighbors prfreront the headphone but I'm sure you can not play the night forcment your spouse may prparer you faster than your suitcase Pipelines Limited.

Apart from a few small default inhrent MODEL mid-range, the ratio quality price is excellent. I will not go against the dbat electronic sound that does not really make sense. This is another concept used with another final.
For me, the goal is to use this drumkit on a sequencer to record the drum parts to keep a human impulse and the amliorer thanks to the possibilities of IT.
For this, the MIDI connections and rglages trs simple. You connect, you open the page assigned sounds. You hit the pad you want and you rgler assign the note you want. So the limitations of the module in terms of sounds are no longer a problem. You can bnficier of excellent drum sounds III or other software equivalents.
Through this kind of software you can get spares for output pad and Exceeds the limit of the two outputs Stereo Module.
But for those who are not IT sector, it Yadji what to do with the module itself. The cymbals are well rgls trs from the strike force and sound right away.
