A module for purists
The aD5 offers you exceptional sound quality in the acoustic drum range. Its presets consist of uncompressed multi-layer sounds with no frills and no unnecessary effects to mix in. Acoustic drums in their purest form.
With its stereo sum as output signal and by concentrating on the essentials and the consequent renunciation of incidentals like metronome, internal effects or single outputs, the ATV aD5 is absolutely recommended as a studio module. For live use on stage, single channel outputs would be an advantage. The team headed by Roland founder Ikutaro Kakehashi has deliberately dispensed with these and thus defines the application focus of this module.
Secondary module with special alignment or centerpiece of your custom e-drums
Due to its high compatibility with most pads on the market and with the included wiring harness, the module can easily be installed into an already existing E-Drum-Kit and provides a very special added value with its first-class sounds for your existing E-Drum-Kit. You can also use it as the centerpiece for a newly built individual custom e-drum set.
Access to even more high-quality sounds
With the ATV Sound Store, you have access to an ever-growing selection of other high-quality drum sets for free download.
Its Best Kit function lets you switch between your favorite sounds. The Crosstalk Cancel Wizard prevents crosstalk when pads are next to each other. In addition to the harness with its 10 connections for 8 pads, you have 2 more inputs in for additional triggers. Backups and additional sounds can be loaded with the SD card slot and the USB-B port is the interface to your home recording components. But even without a studio you can celebrate the sounds of the ATV xD5 - a good pair of headphones with 3.5 mm jack plug is enough.
