Roland announced that the Octapad SPD-30 digital percussion pad is now available in stores.

Featuring eight trigger pads, built-in sounds, multi-effects, and external trigger inputs, the Octapad SPD-30 is designed as a portable electronic percussion instrument for any playing application.

Using the trigger technology from Roland’s V-Drums, the pads on the Octapad SPD-30 are said to feature a natural and responsive playing feel. The eight separate trigger surfaces are designed to provide superior dynamic response, trigger consistency over a pad’s entire surface, and the elimination of crosstalk.

The Octapad SPD-30 includes 50 kits and hundreds of drum and percussion sounds. Onboard effects include 30 types of multi-effects that can be used on individual kits, and Ambience with an Equalizer and Limiter that can be applied to the overall Octapad SPD-30 sound. The Phrase Loop recording feature allows the player to loop recorded sounds in real time, and then overdub additional parts or sounds. With the ability to record three parts per phrase, Phrase Loop is described by Roland as "a powerful creative tool for live performance and recording."

The external trigger/control inputs allow players to connect additional pads, and a hi-hat controller to create a portable mini-electronic kit. The Octapad SPD-30 is also compatible with Roland RT-Series acoustic drum triggers, creating additional options for drummers who want to add electronics to their acoustic drum set.

The device features a backlit LCD, and the pads also feature illuminated LEDs, helpful for performing in low-light settings. In addition, the Octapad SPD-30 has USB connectivity for both data backup and MIDI allowing players to expand their recording capabilities with personal computers. Standard MIDI connections are also included, allowing connection to external sound modules, samplers and other MIDI devices.

Pricing & Availability
The Octapad SPD-30 is now shipping with an MSRP of $799.00.
