Prismatic Sound Modeling: Feel the Difference

The Prismatic Sound Modeling in the TD-50 (upgraded) makes electronic drums come to life like no other system can, infusing multi-layer samples recorded in world-class studios with sophisticated behavior modeling techniques refined over more than two decades. Inspired by a prism -- which refracts a single ray of light into every color in the spectrum -- our revolutionary approach produces an unlimited array of sonic colors with every stick hit. The initial attack is followed by a complex mix of rich overtones, just like playing acoustic drums and cymbals. You can feel the sound changing in reaction to your expression, creating that magical, interactive bond that fully immerses you in the emotion of the moment. From subtle ghost notes and detailed articulations to the loudest and most intense playing, your drumming has no boundaries with the TD-50 (upgraded).

Roland Digital Pads: A Revolution in Electronic Drumming

The TD-50 (upgraded) features three special USB trigger inputs for Roland digital pads, allowing you to take full advantage of Prismatic Sound Modeling's vast expressive potential. Multi-sensor detection in our PD140-DS snare, CY-18DR ride, and VH-14D hi-hat pads works with lightning-fast processing in the module to bring authentic acoustic nuance and detail to these core kit pieces. All your playing techniques translate seamlessly, such as subtly touching the ride to mute the sound or switching at will between head, rimshot, and cross stick playing on the snare. The game-changing VH-14D completes the experience, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution never available in electronic hi-hats until now.

Instantly Gratifying

Imagine acoustic drums that are mic'd, processed, and mixed in a world-class studio -- that's what you get when you call up a preset on the TD-50 (upgraded). Developed with top drummers and recording engineers, these inspiring kits let you take on any style at the touch of a button, from traditional jazz to full-throttle metal.

Make the Sound Your Own

Going beyond the presets, the TD-50 (upgraded) allows you to customize things at every level -- just as you would with an acoustic kit. Make quick adjustments to tuning and muffling, or dive deep and build a kit from the ground up by selecting shell depths, drumhead types, cymbal characteristics, and much more. Then put the kit in the space of your choice using PureAcoustic Ambience, with full control of room type, reverberation, stereo width, and other parameters at your command.

A Studio at Your Fingertips

After you've tweaked the details of your kit, bring it to mix-ready perfection with the TD-50 (upgraded)'s impressive array of pro studio tools. Adjust mic settings for various kit elements, then dial in sounds with EQs, compressors, and other processing. And for spaciousness and color, tap into the wide selection of high-quality reverbs and multi-effects.

Mix Outside the Box

When performing with electronic drums, the ability to process sounds outside the kit is vital. The TD-50 (upgraded) has ten fully assignable balanced outputs for sending the house engineer whatever drums they need, with or without effects. And via faders on the panel, you can easily control the mix from the stage when you're on your own. The module also excels for computer music production, with the ability to send up to 32 simultaneous channels of digital audio plus MIDI over USB for premium-quality transfer.

Your Personal Practice Partner

The TD-50 (upgraded) is loaded with practice features that make every session fun, productive, and rewarding. Improve your timing with the metronome and Coach mode exercises, or simply jam along with music played from a smartphone or laptop. The onboard recorder lets you capture and review your playing at any time, complete with the ability to export audio (with or without backing music) for sharing with others. And you can extend your practice even further with Melodics™, a free desktop app that comes with 40 lessons, plus unlimited access via a subscription when you're ready for more.
