Exceptional Percussion Pad with Advanced Sampling

Roland's SPD-SX sampling percussion pad is Roland's most advanced sampling percussion pad to date. With tons of sounds, three multi-FX, and 2GB of internal memory for up to six hours of onboard sampling, the SPD-SX is perfect for both stage and studio. Featuring nine velocity-sensitive pads and two dual-trigger inputs for external triggering of onboard sounds, the SPD-SX is also a great way to expand an existing percussion setup. And no matter how you use it, you'll love the easy visibility of the large backlit LCD screen and LED indicators for the pads.

The SPD-SX goes beyond other sampling percussion pads by making sampling external audio easier than ever. Just route a signal through the 1/4" inputs or from your computer via USB — just touch a pad at the appropriate start and end points, and the SPD-SX creates a perfect loop. And thanks to the included SPD-SX Wave Manager software, it's easy to organize your recorded samples and transfer them to and from your computer. With performance-focused features and an incredible sound set, you'll love the Roland SPD-SX sampling percussion pad!

Expressive playability with an expansive soundset

Roland's SPD-SX features an expansive array of dynamic sounds that respond amazingly to the nine velocity-sensitive pads. Snare rolls sound natural, cymbals respond to every nuance of your playing, and percussion sounds have a lifelike feel to them you won't get anywhere else besides the SPD-SX.

Intuitive sampling

You can create your own samples and loops from playing on the Roland SPD-SX, or from an external audio source routed to the SPD-SX's 1/4" inputs. Just press a button to enter sampling mode, touch the pad you want to start recording, and touch it again to end recording and create a perfect loop.

For the stage or studio

You'll love recording with the Roland SPD-SX, whether you're using it to play in complete rhythm tracks, or for adding extra percussion effects to your full kit. Onstage the SPD-SX rules: the red LEDs make it easy to see what you're triggering, and the smart design makes it easy to integrate into a standard drum kit.

  • Huge selection of dynamic sounds, controlled by highly responsive, velocity-sensitive trigger pads

You have made the father of a drumming machine son really proud

My son has been drumming since 7 yo. He is 16 now, self motivated and loves to drum. He worked hard this summer and wanted to upgrade his drum kit. He didn't make quite enough. So he went on to and spoke with some of his instructors to decide what would compliment his kit. He did his research. He decided on the Roland SPD-SX and so far, we are all impressed with its functionality and how much it adds to his repertoire. He loves speed metal mostly. But this has added so many new options. I can't thank Nathan, what we consider our personal sales engineer, enough for his assistance, encouragement and guidance in each of the purchases we have made from We understand there are options to purchase equipment out there. You all just seem to make it fun, cost effective and part of the team in helping a young drummer improve on his gig. Thank you.


sounds great easy-to-use setup it works

Roland SPD-SX Sampling Percussion Pad

I must say the Roland SPD-SX is a amazing Instrument, not only a great Percussion Pad but a Fantastic sampler which is very user friendly. What is even more impressive is the great Staff at Sweetwater. I have been a client of David Mikautadze for more than four years and in that time I must say David has been there for me when ever I decided to purchase or ask advice about any product that Sweetwater carries. It's great to know that if you have a problem the Staff at Sweetwater in all departments are great to work with before the sale as well after which is even more important to me. That's why I consider them to be the number one on my list for all my Music needs.

Sweetwater Advice

Aaron Rom

This is a great addition for any drummer looking to incorporate electronic drums into their acoustic kit. It takes everything that was great about its predecessor, the SPDS, and improves upon it. You get more memory, increased USB functionality, better display, and great feeling pads. Roland had a winner with the SPDS, and the new SPDSX is even better!
