Real Acoustics TD-17 All Kits Demo:

The drum-tec Sound Editions for Roland modules contain first-class sets which can be loaded additionally to the pre-loaded drumkits. It took quite a lot of time and effort and with great attention to detail we worked relentlessly to really get every bit of sound refinement out of the Roland modules.

Our customers regularly ask us regarding sound manipulation and what their options are to really get the most out of their Roland module. We took this by heart and started aggregating our most loved kits and sounds and started compiling them to Sound Editions. From our experience of being drummers ourselves and incorporating the feedback from our customers we created our own sets for all the important Roland modules. While some sets are just for fun at home others are optimized for the stage.

When installing the drum-tec Sound Edition for your Roland module you do not change or delete the pre-set kits provided by Roland. We rather use the option the create and save user kits to completely exploit the possibilities in sound design and design the best drumsets possible. We get a lot of positive feedback on our Sound Editions which is just incredibly fulfilling.

Included are a list of the available kits as well as instructions on how to load the Sound Edition into your Roland module!

A must have!

These guys nailed these sounds and kits. Saved myself and I'm sure many others, countless hours of dialing in "that perfect sound", thank you!!! And to be able to tweak to your own personal liking is awesome. Well worth the money!

I was honestly about to give up on my TD-17 and look for something else as I could not get a preset kit customized to my liking. These kits all sound amazing and I'm SO happy to be able to enjoy playing once again and not cringing when certain things sound off due to crappy presets.

It's all about expectations.

My experience:

Purchasing, downloading and installing the 'real acoustic live sounding' drumkits was very easy. It only took 10 minutes from payment to uploading the last drumkit.

After installing these drumkits, I noticed there was a cowbell or woodblock sound on almost every tom-rim; so first thing I did was exchange them with convenient tom-sounds. Because I use my tom-rims a lot, they are an essential part of an acoustic kit as far as I see it, and I hate it when I hit a cowbell/tambourin/whatever during tom-fills. My tom rims do not sound like a percussion instrument.

Then I played and listened to the drumkits, one by one, and some sounded really good... but others not, almost unnatural. Like that Oshino kit with toms with brush-sounds, but snare and cymbals with stick-sounds.

I started noticing the different cymbal-sounds on the same pad. Same story like the cowbell/woodblock/tambourin on each tom-rim: that's not 'natural'. Speaking about natural sounds: what I usually do is adding a layer underneath a cymbal sound; so the result is (for example) a ride that washes and crashes at a certain velocity at the same surface. That's realistic.

I checked all the '30' drumkits, and at a certain point I thought: 'these are in general 15 drumkits, with copy-pasted clones with too much reverb'. So I started editing those clones by changing the parameters to make the sounds more user-friendly.

So after a few hours editing, I felt slightly disappointed about this package. The mean reason is that it's a bit cheap to create and sell 'online drumkits' in this way. Only the snaredrums and the toms are edited and yes, the snare drums are really good edited! Hey, it's not only bad news. :-) Certainly the 30 high quality 'user samples' of 'snare buzz/ring' are welcome. Those are an improvement in the sound quality of the basic snare drum sounds of the TD-17 and that is a fact.

Next time, I will think twice before buying a sound pack. Or lower my expectations. Yes, I know. Still, I'm sure there are a lot of people who are satisfied with this package. I know it takes a lot of work to make packages like this. If you don't want to spent days (!) with adjusting parameters to create good sounding drumkits like these, then it's certainly worth the money.

Unreal value

I was hesitant about spending ~$40 USD on this but regret not doing it sooner. I don't see myself using the original 50 kits very often after playing with these 30 kits. Some are better than others, but most, if not all, are better than the pre-included kits. Save yourself the hassle of tinkering and fiddling and get this sound pack. You'll be glad you did.

Makes your TD 17... Better?

At first I was like ah damn it, I hope I don't throw away money for sounds I coulda just done myself you know?
But I saw the video and it was sweet but then again, that Ralph guy who plays the demo is crazy good and I'm sure makes everything sound better lol!!
Long story short: F-YES! I feel like I bought a new module everything is so refined and authentic and...just real!!
Well named!

I bought my TD17 already with the drum tec sounds as a package. And I was waiting desperately for fresh material. This selection is awesome. I love every single sound. A must investment you will never regret.

Very happy to have found this product!

So I picked up a TD-17 to use as a practice kit at the house. I’d been playing a TD-25 at my local GC but didn’t want to put that much into it so I bought a floor model 17 for much less. I thought the sounds would be the same as what I heard on the 25... I was very disappointed. After seeing a forum post about Drum-tec add-on kits I purchased the Acoustic pack. Much happier! All of these kits are usable but being a cover drummer mostly, my sound is typically just like the Stage Custom kit. I could actually use the 17 at a gig should I want to now. Not so with the default kits.

A whole new level!

I have been very happy with the hardware of my TD-17 but never really liked the sounds included. Right after purchasing the TD-17 I found the Metal Sound Edition from Drum-tec and this completely changed the game for me. Since then I have stayed with these kits and I don't remember having used the native kits once.
A few days ago I did buy the Real Acoustics kits and it just feels like Christmas. A whole new drumkit again. I can't wait to play with the band :-)

Now THAT'S what Im talking bout!
Well done guys, exactly what Ive been waiting for!
Sweet sounds, very authentic indeed!

Excellent sounds, just what I was looking for!

Awesome Expansion

Drum-tec did an excellent job, the kits are awesome and is really a great expansion for the TD-17. I wonder why Roland don't put these kind of good stuffs in their module - thanks to drum-tec they exist. Special thanks to Kai-Olav Zander-Walz for the help and support and kudos to Ralf Schumacher for the superb demo. Prost und es lebe Drum-tec!!!

Also manchmal schon beängstigend wie real die Sounds klingen. Da stecken mit Sicherheit etliche Stunden Arbeit drin und das hört man auch? Es macht einfach nur Freude die Kits zu spielen. Vielen Dank dafür das ist jeden Cent wert? Wer ist denn eigentlich dieser Drummer der in den Videos spielt? Der hat echt n guten Groove drauf. Muss unbedingt mal nach Hessisch Oldendorf kommen.

Killer download.

These kits are incredibly good right out of the box. Compared to the stock Roland user kits and V Expression kits that I have, these are miles ahead. Way too many unusable kits in both the Roland/Vex samples compared to a really great Real Acoustics Sound Edition package. Elevate your TD17 with the Real Acoustics Sound Edition, the cost is minimal for what you get.

Game Changer

Wow . I recently bought a Roland TD17 Kit to play more sophisticated and quiet type clubs . I really wasn't pleased with most of the kits and knew with some tweeking I could get them to sound better .. Before I tackled that project, I found Drum-tech and to my amazement saw that they had some real nice brain packages to upgrade the kits ... Folks, It is night and day .. I have never been more amazed and happy with every aspect of my kit now .. The drum kits in the acoustic package are phenomenal .. I am not only amazed by the drum sounds but the cymbals sound amazing as well ..the dual pads have dual sounds .. Crash and splash , crash and China ... The game has changed and all for the better ... Best investment for my gear .

I waited soooo long for this!
Finally, damn fine solid sounds, thanks guys! I bought and liked the metal sounds, but I'm no metal drummer, so it was a stretch. This sound pack is just made for me. The fat versions are amazing: Roomy, yet digestible! You guys did a great job editing these kits. Well put together, not just random drums mixed to death and covered by FX - a real drummer did this, everything just... fits! (And plays well, really musically)
BTW, thanks to Marvin for keeping your promise and remembering to write to tell me about this release after God knows how many months - you rock! Though now I want the classic rock kits you told me would follow, though luck ;)
