Continuing the Roland September Festival today, it’s time to meet some new additions to Roland’s Drum world.

What’s new in the TD-1KPX2: 

blog-TD-1KPX2_1Roland’s newest addition to their foldable and portable V-Drums range is based on last year’s popular TD1KPX set and features a few welcomed improvements:

This new kit, TD1KPX, takes folding to another level thanks to a new folding stand. This kit can be put away without having to remove the cymbals and pads, and you can fold it up in no time, making this kit more portable than ever! The compact and lightweight design (It also only weighs 15 kg!) makes this a perfect kit for playing in small spaces like your home, and taking it along to rehearsals or gigs, and then hiding it away in when you’re done.

The TD1KPX2 features the great V-Drums sounds you’re used to, authentic playability with mesh-head pads, and the new version has been given an updated kick pad so players can now play double-kick patterns, thanks to the wider kick pad that accommodates two side-by-side beaters when using a twin acoustic kick pedal setup.

With a built-in metronome and virtual coach, Drums Tutor software and practice features, the TD-1KPX2 module makes for a great choice for beginners and improvers. The module comes packed with internal songs to jam to, and a Mix In jack so you can plug in your own tunes to jam along to. You’ve also got an on-board USB-MIDI interface so you can record MIDI tracks straight in to your DAW!

Roland SPD-SX Special Edition Powerful Sampling Pad

Roland have announced a special-edition version of the SPDSX digital sampling pad. The Special Edition is identical in functionality to the original, but features hugely expanded onboard storage: With 16 GB of internal memory, you will most definitely be okay to load enough studio-quality WAV samples to last you way beyond your gig. (That’s approximately 25 hour in stereo or 50 hour in mono!)

The SPDSX will let you trigger custom samples, loops, and even complete backing tracks. It also supports real-time sample capture with its unique Multi-Pad Sampling function. And thanks to the bundled Ableton Live Lite license and Wave Manager software, the Special Edition is also ready to support a variety of workflows: from WAV sound production to setting up the samples and assigning instruments for performing.

And of course, this SPDSX looks great in the new sparkling red finish too!
