Roland SPD-SX

Multipad from Roland belonging to the SPD series.

Roland's new SPD-SX Sampling Pad, a multi-pad percussion instrument with 2 GB of onboard sampling memory and three effects engines, is now shipping.

The SPD-SX replaces the SPD-S, and provides a portable way to add sampling to a performance setup. The 2 GB of built-in memory provides about three hours of CD-quality sampling in stereo, which can be captured via the stereo mic/line input or imported through USB. The SPD-SX also features Multi-Pad Sampling, suited for capturing complete songs, then assigning individual song sections to specific pads.

 

User samples and factory-preloaded wave data can be organized and stored in any of the 100 available kits and played from the nine integrated trigger pads, which include six large pads and three edge triggers. The pads feature Roland's pad-sensing technology. Each pad has a dynamic LED that illuminates when a pad is struck, and also responds to audio-level activity. Two dual-trigger inputs allow users to expand the SPD-SX with optional external pads and acoustic drum triggers for even more triggering options. The SPD-SX has three multi-effects units onboard: one master unit and two units that are assignable per kit. In addition, two dedicated front-panel knobs provide control of user-assignable effects.

 

The bundled SPD-SX Wave Manager software for Mac and PC lets users import, assign, and organize samples and assemble kits. USB also allows users to easily interface the SPD-SX with their computer to communicate directly with DAWs and other music software, so players can use the SPD-SX to trigger software instruments and record MIDI and audio data in the computer.

 

The SPD-SX can be played on a tabletop or with the optional Roland PDS-10 stand. Other features include an interface and large display, dual stereo outputs, a phones jack, an assignable click with dedicated front-panel level knob, MIDI I/O, and more.

 

Pricing & Availability

The SPD-SX is available now with an MSRP of $999.00.
