      Expressive playability with an expansive soundset

      Roland's SPD-SX Pro features an expansive array of dynamic sounds that respond amazingly to the nine velocity-sensitive pads. Snare rolls sound natural, cymbals respond to every nuance of your playing, and percussion sounds have a lifelike feel to them you won't get anywhere else.

      You can create your own samples and loops from playing on the Roland SPD-SX Pro, or from an external audio source routed to the SPD-SX Pro’s 1/4-inch inputs. Just press a button to enter sampling mode, touch the pad you want to start recording, and touch it again to end recording and create a perfect loop. Real-time recordings can be saved as WAV files and immediately assigned, for on-the-fly improvisation. Plus, the onboard 32GB of internal storage is perfect for your own samples and sounds, capable of automatically converting incoming audio to 48 kHz/16-bit for crystalline playback.

      Premium performance from the studio to the stage

      Introducing the Roland SPD-SX PRO Flagship Sampling Pad

      Meet the flagship pad in the sampling pad lineup: SPD-SX PRO. Harnessing Roland’s advanced sampling technology, the SPD-SX PRO boasts an array of requested, enhanced professional features. And each component has been tested to withstand the pressures of life on the road.

      Roland SPD-SX & SPD-SX PRO Sampling Pad Comparison

      Whether playing the beloved SPD-SX or the flagship SPD-SX PRO, drummers will be blown away by each pad’s sounds and capabilities. With advanced triggering and sampling technology, these pads fit perfectly into both electronic and hybrid setups—from the live stage to the recording studio, DJ booth, or home music room.

      RELIABILITY/DURABILITY - Built To Hit The Road

      Equipment on the road takes a beating on and off stage. Since 2011, pro drummers have put the SPD-SX through the ultimate trial by fire, from packed clubs to sold-out stadiums. The SPD-SX PRO adds to that legacy, incorporating years of feedback into its upgrades. With customizable LED lights, a large color screen, and triggering you can count on, this bulletproof package is ready to rock night after night.

      LIGHT IT UP - Customizable Pad-Dividing LED Lights

      When the lights go down, the PRO lights up. Customizable pad-dividing LED and trigger lights let you see all nine pads on dark stages—goodbye gaffer tape! Assign any vertical or horizontal light to one of ten preset colors or create and name your own. Group together kicks, snares, backing tracks, and clicks with their own assigned color. And set the horizontal pad lights to be on constantly, light only when a pad is struck, or flash dynamically with its assigned WAV.

      HIT IT - Ultra-Responsive Pads

      The SPD-SX PRO has nine super-durable pads. The top three shoulder pads include a revised sensor structure for increased sensitivity and even-sounding hits when the pad is played—no matter the mounting angle. You also have increased crosstalk protection to prevent accidental triggering of other pads. And if you already own an SPD-SX, the SPD-SX PRO size is so close in size that you can use your existing carry case and accessories…no need to repurchase any extra gear.

      ON DISPLAY - Color LCD Screen

      Playing in the dark just got easier. The SPD-SX PRO features a large 4.3-inch color screen with backlit function buttons, tabs, and a jog-dial for lightning-fast sound selection. The display shows essential real-time information such as A & B sample layers, WAV sample names, sample playback progress, and more.

      SOUND QUALITY - All The Sounds You Need

      The crowd roars. The pressure is on. You need the right sounds at the right time. The massive 32 GB memory will hold your entire music catalog for multiple gigs. With 1,550 onboard samples, 200 lock-and-loaded kits, and balanced outputs, you can put the SPD-SX PRO to work right out of the box. Plus, easily sort and search your sounds with sample tags—no more searching for a needle in a haystack.

      UNDER THE HOOD - Storage & Sounds

      Storage worries are now a thing of the past. With 32 GB of internal memory, the SPD-SX PRO holds nearly 44 hours of crystal-clear 48 kHz/16-bit stereo audio. And there’s no need to fuss with converting your source formats. You can load 48/44.1 kHz WAV, AIFF, and MP3 files with varying bit rates, and the SPD-SX PRO will automatically convert them to its native 48 kHz/16-bit audio format—a huge time saver.

      SEND IT - Expanded Audio Outputs

      The SPD-SX PRO has two-channel balanced stereo master outputs—left and right. Combine those with four fully assignable mono audio outputs for six individual audio feeds, so that any pad can be sent to any output for mixing flexibility. And there’s also an assignable stereo headphones output for custom monitoring scenarios.

      ALL ABOARD - Loaded Samples and Sounds

      The SPD-SX PRO comes loaded with 1,550 high-quality sounds and 200 kits (43 erasable preset kits and 157 user kits). And in the heat of battle, the SPD-SX PRO’s processing power lets you swap to a new kit without cutting off the sound of the existing kit—so as the audio decays at the end of the last sound that you played, you’ve already changed kits ready for the next track in the set. Need even more options? Dive into Roland Cloud sample libraries and explore the ever-expanding selection of sounds.

      STACK SOUNDS - A/B Layering

      It’s easy to create custom sound layers when you assign two sounds to a pad. You can assign a sound as the MAIN layer within the pad menu and then select another sample to layer with your original sample—resulting in MAIN and SUB sounds on the same pad. Then alternate between MAIN and SUB layers. You even have separate volume, pitch, transient attack, and release control for each sound, so you get the perfect blend of layers.


      Putting on a killer show takes some prep work. The SPD-SX PRO is packed with features to lift the weight of pre-gig planning. Download and organize sounds with a dedicated app. Get creative with four effects engines and connect a hi-hat controller or an expression pedal. Then mix in some magic with expanded trigger inputs and the onboard 16-step pad sequencer.

      DEEPER EDITING - Dedicated App

      With nearly unlimited sounds under your sticks, you need to stay organized. Using the dedicated SPD-SX PRO App from Roland Cloud, you can easily import audio, and edit sound or playback parameters via USB on your computer. Drag and drop samples, create kits, adjust settings, and name as you go. The same USB connection allows you to send 8-channel audio and MIDI to the computer for recording with a DAW.

      PEDAL TO THE METAL - Expression Control

      With expanded trigger inputs, there are even more playing possibilities at your fingertips…or feet. You can play with up to nineteen surfaces when you max out all pads, external triggers, and footswitch inputs. Connect a hi-hat controller, like the Roland VH-10 V-Hi-Hat, and play with open and closed pedal expression or add snare and kick pads to create a mini drum set. Alternatively, you can connect an expression pedal for real-time effects control as you play.

      EFFORTLESS ENGINES - Effects and Sidechain

      Embrace a vast selection of high-quality processing to enhance and color your sounds. Four MFX provide everything from mod, distortion, and filter effects to delays and reverbs, and you can assign them to any pad or external trigger input within each kit. Master comp, EQ, and effect options are also available to process the overall output. Sidechain compression is included too, ensuring that kick drums and other punchy sounds never get buried in the mix.

      MAKE A CONNECTION - Inputs For Easy Mixing

      Mixing from the stage has never been easier with a balanced main stereo output and four balanced direct outputs. Connect up to eight mono, single-zone triggers or four stereo head and rim triggers. With external dual trigger inputs, hi-hat, and footswitch inputs, you can let it rip on up to nineteen different playing surfaces.

      STEP IT UP - 16-Step Pad Sequencer

      Streamline your performance prep with the onboard 16-step pad sequencer. Assign from 2 to 16 steps to a pad within each kit. Then coordinate playback of different pads in your chosen sequence. There’s no need to remember where each sound is on the pads—once programmed, hitting your chosen pad will trigger the sequence, making live-show production simple.

      IN SYNC - Increased Pad Link

      Have an audio backing track and audio click track that need to start together? When you use pad link, you can hit a single pad and start audio from two pads at the same time. And you can pad link any combination of pads and external triggers. Then use mute group to silence a previous pad as you strike the next, so only one pad is playing at a time. Together, full pad link and mute groups create unlimited track, loop, and audio combinations within each kit.

      ON THE BEAT - Click Track

      As the drummer, it’s your job to drive the beat behind the performance. Thanks to the flexible onboard click, staying in time has never been easier. The internal click is fully editable for sound and note value, and you can assign any sample as the click sound. Then start the click from a pad, button, or external trigger pad hit. And even when it’s playing, you’re still in control— the click can be set to alternate on/off via stick hits, to sound one time upon a hit, or to retrigger each time you hit it.

      TAKE CONTROL - Pad Editing

      Pad Edit controls are within easy reach when you need to tweak samples on the fly. Adjust volume and pitch with dedicated controls in real time. Or press a button to adjust the attack and release for the pad’s transient settings. And when you need to go deeper, the color display gives you clear access to many advanced parameters.
