The sound and advanced V-Edit system of the Roland TD-50 module

The internal drum sound memory of the TD-50 module is three times the size of it's damller brother, the TD-30, while the sound library has been upgraded from over a thousand drum samples to 400 exquisite drum sounds. This shows that the TD-50's new acoustic drum sounds are technically capable of even more depth and the finest dynamic levels.

To enter this new world of sound 70% of all instrument samples have been newly recorded in the hottest high-end studios in the UK, the USA and Australia on flagship drums from Gretsch, Sonor, Tama, Pearl, DW and even some exotics. Each sample was recorded in hundreds of layers (dynamics from quiet to loud and positions from rim to middle). Most of the cymbals were also recorded anew in all nuances from a great range of Paiste cymbals.

The side of the Roland TD-50 features a card reader that supports SD and SD-HC (up to 32GB) cards which can be used to add even more samples to the TD-50. What is excitingly special is that the drummer is able to layer those samples with the on-board samples! These sound options can be dynamically combined by a vast variety of splitting and layering points to be further refined in the signal processor (V-Drum Edit) and post-processed as one sound with effects, compression, EQ and more. Those editing options create a new realm of drum and effects combinations. Additional user modes benefit from 64MB internal storage.

The redesigned V-Drum Edit provides the TD-50 drummer with newly developed sound modulations. Amongst other things it features extended editing options for transient states and peak levels of drum sounds and editing options for changing the thickness of the cymbal material for a more saturated sound. By way of doing this you can for example manipulate an 18" cymbal sound from paper-thin to thick and juicy.

The audio and trigger connectors of the Roland TD-50 sound module

A noticeable addition to the TD-50 are the three USB connectors on the rear of the module for the use with the new Digital Pad generation. Those specific ports are for the use with Digital Pads only which have to be used in an either/or fashion: When you connect for example a PD-140DS snare pad to the digital trigger-in the conventional trigger-in for the snare turns off. All three digital-ins can be mapped any which way, so you could add three snare pads or three cymbals, or a mix just as you wish.

Once you assign a snare pad the module automatically registers the X-Stick (cross stick) behavior for this input. Since you can assign any TD-50 sound to a digital trigger-in the use of digital pads does not even diminish the range of sounds but rather opens up further capabilities of the triggering engine.

Another remarkable feature are the enhanced dynamical steps of the digital trigger-ins: The sensitivity exceeds the conventional 127 MIDI steps and introduces 32 additional steps for a finer recognition of gradual changes and peak levels.

Yet another heavyweight feature of the Roland flagship module is the USB port, which may receive up to 10 separate signals from the module and can insert 4 additional signals. The digital signal output supports sample rates of 22 / 44 / 48 and even 96 Hz and also provides MIDI transmission.
The TD-50 offers 8 analog direct outputs which can be sent directly to the mixing console without the need of a DI unit thanks to symmetrical signals. Additionally, there are two(!) pair of master outputs - one symmetrical and one asymmetrical.

The front of the module features two headphones jacks, each providing a higher output volume than the TD-30 module. Also included is the usual MIDI Trio and an input for external audio.

Additional TD-50 features

The hot-spot was greatly reduced thanks to the new signal-processing even with analog pads. Both the display and the button LED can now change color. Since the outer dimensions of the TD-50 match those of the TD-30 it will also fit the drum-tec flight-case. To further simplify the editing options and optimally leverage all its features Roland is planning on releasing additional editing software.

Affengailes Teil.?

Für den Live und Studioeinsatz einfach nur genial. Wenn man die Sounds etwas bearbeitet, hämmer das Ding richtig durch.

Sehr gutes Teil!

Die Werkseinstellungen sind sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig. Wenn man ein bisschen an den EQ Einstellungen etc. schraubt kommt man zu sehr guten Ergebnissen. Insg. erfüllt das TD-50 fast alle Wünsche. Einzig, dass man das Click nicht mit Fusstaster oder Pad starten/stoppen ist ärgerlich.
