Well, what does “MANIACS” even mean?
A MANIACS Sound Editions is something special! Its creator doesn’t just leverage their knowledge, skills and experience, but also their personal taste. That way the Sound Edition becomes something personal and full of character.
It’s all about fun
With this Sound Edition you get a lot of kits with sound effects, layered sounds, percussive effects and even loops. We wanted to create something fun that is still easy and intuitive to play. No ugly surprises. All kits are created so that they can be played just like regular drums, but with added bonuses.
That means, that bass drum, snare drum, tom 1 and 3, the crashes and the ride cymbal will respond as expected. Even if there are unusual sound effects, or layered sounds, you can still play the kit like you would regular drums – alone, with the band or even during jam sessions!
On top of that, there are special sounds on tom 2 and 4 and AUX 1 and 2 to give each set its unique character. Think reggae, electronic sounds, delay effects on percussion instruments and so on. There are even kits with backing track loops spanning multiple beats to fuel your creative drumming!
Also, the tom rims will trigger special sounds to give you access to even more variety with each kit. Of course, there are also regular acoustic drums sounds to create kits that sound the way you expect them to.
drum-tec samples included!
We recorded acoustics drums and studio loops for the drum-tec sound library to get samples that fit the TD-50 perfectly. This MANIACS Edition has more than 10 kits with a combined total of more than 50 samples you won't find anywhere else.
Make your TD-50 sound better than ever before:
We modeled all kits with care and attention to detail to make your Roland TD-50 sound amazing! To achieve maximum sound quality we also integrated our own samples.

Let's go: Enjoy your amazing new sounds!
Let's be honest: Anyone can drown the stock sounds in effects to make a kit sound big and impressive when you first hear it.
But you can't play dynamically with a kit that's maxed out on all fronts. And your ear tires fast from too much bass, treble and effects.
When a kit is too fat your nuanced playing is suffocated by a muddy mess.
That's a recipe for boredom, discouragement and even a risk to your health.
You deserve superb drums!
Maybe you have the experience to create astonishing kits, but do you have the patience? We have both:
Our Sound Editions supply you with expertly crafted kits that are built from the ground up. All sounds are carefully balanced against each other and perfected by our integrated custom samples. You will love the result!
Profit from our experience:
We follow our own recipe and our kits become more than just the sum of their parts.
Sounds a little too good to be true? Don't just take our word for it, make up your own mind:
Our video demos the unedited truth of what to expect – nothing is masked by backing tracks!
We want you to play e-drums you'll love!
We're creating kits, so you can focus on playing the drums. Building amazing kits is hard work and takes a lot of patience and experience.
Luckily, you don't have to worry about that!
This Sound Edition is easy to use and makes your Roland TD-50 fun.
