Whether you're rocking a full Roland V-Drum kit or looking for a cool way to add drum samples to your acoustic set, the Roland SPD-One Electro pad makes it easy. This drop-in sampler pad plays just like any high-end Roland drum pad, but it includes an onboard sample player you can customize to fit your needs. The sound engine is remarkably easy to customize, plus the SPD-One Electro comes with all the hardware you need.
The SPD-One Electro drum pad comes loaded with a library of 22 classic 808 and 909 percussion sounds, so it's a blast to play, right out of the box. Want to use your own sounds? No problem! Just connect it to your computer via USB and drop in the WAV files you want to play. Once you've loaded up the samples you want to play, there are several onboard options that let you further customize your SPD-One Electro's sound. For starters, you can tune your samples up or down to get them to fit in with the rest of your kit or to create cool special effects. Speaking of effects, built-in reverb and delay are also great ways to make the most of your drum sounds.
Whether you play with your hands, sticks, mallets, or some other method, your Roland SPD-One Electro drum pad is happy to oblige. In addition to setting the volume and effects, the sensitivity is totally adjustable. As for mounting, the included hardware lets you attach it to tom stands, cymbal stands, or even mic stands. Finally, there's no need to bother with extra cables (unless you feel like picking up an optional power supply), since the SPD-One Electro drum pad runs efficiently on four AA batteries.
Twenty years after launching the original V-Drum line, Roland is still at it, revolutionizing the world of virtual drums in exciting and creative new ways. The SPD-One combines the standalone modular approach of the traditional SPD series that drummers at Music Experience already love in a format that lets you build the exact kit you have in mind. Want to add an electronic snare or tom? No problem. Replace your kick with a pad? Piece of cake. Build a full kit or just add the pieces you want; it's all up to you with Roland's SPD-One series.
The Roland SPD::ONE ELECTRO is a new type of digital percussion pad, one that allows any musician to add electronic sounds to their performances. It contains 22 iconic sounds, including fat snares, crisp hand claps, electronic cowbells, and more, and you can even import your own original audio data into one of the 12 internal sound banks. Once you’re ready to go, the SPD::ONE ELECTRO’s robust-yet-sensitive pad can be played with sticks, hands, or feet, and the trigger threshold settings are easily adjusted with intuitive controls. Powered by batteries or AC, the portable SPD::ONE ELECTRO can be used on the floor or a tabletop, or mounted to any rig or drum setup with the included adapter. Operation is simple, even for those musicians who are not technical; just by using four knobs on the control panel, you can change the sound, volume, balance, and more. Whether you’re a drummer, percussion player, guitarist, DJ, or vocalist, the SPD::ONE ELECTRO is a simple and flexible way to expand your sound palette and invigorate your performances.
Every musician is individual, and your instruments need to complement your creativity and performance style. The SPD::ONE ELECTRO lets you play the way you want to; this compact digital percussion pad can be played with drumsticks, hands, or even your feet. What’s more, you can adjust sensitivity and trigger threshold settings in seconds using two control dials on the side of the unit. Drummers and percussionists will love the solid feel and natural rebound, guitarists can confidently stomp on the unit for four-on-the-floor beats, and practically any musician can play sounds by hand without fear of sore palms and fingers at the end of the night.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO contains 22 iconic sounds, including drum and percussion sounds from Roland’s legendary TR-808 and TD-909 drum machines. Inside you’ll find fat snares, hi-hats, hand claps, and more, and the pitch of every instrument can be changed on the fly using a single knob. You can even add reverb or delay in seconds with a second knob. With the SPD::ONE ELECTRO, bolstering your backbeat with electronic sounds has never been simpler.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO is compact enough to fit into your existing instrument setup without needing to move your other gear. With the included mounting adapter, you can easily clamp the pad to a hi-hat, cymbal, or tom stand,* or even a mic stand. Alternately, the SPD::ONE ELECTRO can be played without mounting it to anything at all—simply place it on the floor, a tabletop, or any solid surface.
You can take the SPD::ONE ELECTRO wherever you want, thanks to its compact size and battery operation. It’s lightweight enough to be dropped into a bag or instrument case, and robust enough to travel thanks to its metal-body construction. You can even play and produce your own sounds on the move via headphones, and include them in your set list that night.
Operating the SPD::ONE ELECTRO is very simple. There are no complex submenus or button sequences—just select your sounds by turning the bank selector to any of the 12 positions, and hit the pad to play. With just four main knobs on the front panel, everything you need is at hand, including the ability to customize sounds, adjust overall volume, and balance levels on the fly.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO is loaded with iconic sounds, but sometimes you just need to use your own samples. Via USB, you can import WAV audio files up to five seconds long simply by dragging and dropping your files. Your sounds can then be modified just like any of the internal sounds using the tuning and effect control knobs. If you need to use sounds longer than five seconds, check out the dedicated SPD::ONE WAV PAD, which can handle up to 4 GB of WAV audio.
Thanks to its built-in USB-MIDI support, the SPD::ONE ELECTRO can be used as a compact digital pad controller for a computer DAW. This provides a great way to play software-based sounds and enhance your productions with realistic MIDI percussion tracks.
