A Serious, Streamlined Drum Module

Serious drummer? Roland designed the TD-25 Drum Sound Module for you. Easy to operate and loaded with an impressive professional sound set, the module's advanced SuperNATURAL sound engine gives you the expressiveness of Roland's flagship V-Drums along with fluid playability. With the TD-25's streamlined interface, you can easily customize sounds and curate personalized kits ideally suited to your musical genres and playing technique. The TD-25 also has powerful tools to improve your drumming, including an onboard audio recorder, metronome, coaching functionality, and more. The state of the art in electronic drums keeps pushing forward, and — take it from Sweetwater — the Roland TD-25 is on the cutting edge.

Professional sounds, amazing expressiveness

The TD-25 delivers a fabulous drumming experience, courtesy of Roland's SuperNATURAL technology with Behavior Modeling inherited from the popular TD-30. Going way beyond typical e-drum brains, the TD-25 responds to your playing just like actual acoustic drums. From snare drum rim shots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes to dynamic cymbal swells and powerful crashes, the TD-25 captures every nuance of your performance. And for the ultimate in natural playing feel, the TD-25 offers positional snare sensing with compatible Roland drum pads, and also works with Roland's VH-11 V-Hi-hat for realistic hi-hat techniques.

Dial up kits, customize, and start grooving

With its delightfully easy-to-use interface, the Roland TD-25 drum module lets you get up and grooving immediately. Even with sticks in your hands, the large center dial lets you quickly select your kit based on musical genres such as standard, rock, jazz, electronic, and more. Choose a style, then press the dial to toggle between different kit variations. With the TD-25, it's incredibly easy to customize sounds to your playing techniques or a particular musical style. Simply hit a pad to pull up the sound assigned to it, and then tweak the panel knobs to adjust tuning, muffling, or relative volume. The TD-25 gives you shortcuts to speed up tom editing, letting you assign sounds and change muffling and tuning for all toms simultaneously. Your edits are saved automatically, eliminating extra steps. Of course, if you decide you don't like your recent tweaks, it's easy to undo them and return the kit to its state when you first selected it.

Play along with tracks and record your performances

Want to play along with a track? Load a USB memory stick with WAV/MP3 files and start jamming. In addition to its regular playback mode, the Roland TD-25 module lets you loop sections you want to work on or slow down the playback to nail more difficult passages. You can even plug your smartphone into the audio input and play along with songs from your music library or the web. You can also record your drumming — including the music playback — as audio files to a USB memory stick. This is an excellent way to assess your playing and share your drumming with producers or other musicians. The TD-25 is fitted with a USB host port as well, which gives you a convenient way to record MIDI data and high-quality audio directly to your DAW.

Absolutely fantastic sound, quality, and response. Ghost-noting is not limited or hindered, especially wiith my unique set up. I use the TD-25 module with an expanded Ludwig "Questlove" Breakbeat kit. I use RT-30HR triggers on 4 toms (1 left floor tom, 1 rack tom, and 2 right-side floor toms, I use Remo Silent Stroke mesh heads, and the PD-128 snare for optimum snare drum response (I do a lot of snare work). I could not be happier! Though, I do plan on getting the TD 30 module in order to run the TD-30 and the TD-25 together to expand the kit even more in a live setting. Currently, I have the TD-25 paired with a TD-6V and ran through superior drummer for studio purposes.

Professional and very musical!

If you are a gigging drummer and your livelihood depends on being able to execute the chops you spent a lifetime to gain with world class sound quality - this kit is it. Most electronic drums cant track grace notes and 32nd notes very well. Also they sound "triggered" or machine-like. Not this kit. Unless you select an electro type kit, i.e. it is intentional to sound more machine-like.I already own a Roland TD-30. It is the most musical electronic instrument I have ever come across. I acquired a TD-25 because I needed something quicker to setup to handle an aggressive gigging schedule while I relegated the TD-30 for the studio. The DB25 connector really helps with this. It is one of the reasons I got this sound module. I am steadily getting more gigs because my drums have a volume knob and always sound amazing! Too many bands with acoustic drums have toms that sound like tuned card board and the like. These sounds cut through without requiring 120db.For me the only cons are that there is no MIDI-In and it does not yet support the latest Roland HiHat.In summary, whether you are a pro drummer or one that aspires to be one, this kit has the right stuff.

Fantastic with Limitations

Giant leap forward for advancement in digital drum technology. The VERY limited number of instruments sound fantastic. Had Roland included another 500 instruments to the TD25 it would have a much better and smarter product. Most of the effects are useless like flange, distortion and others that make no sense and take up wasted space. Instead Roland should have given independent effects to the individual instruments. The "grouping" idea is backward thinking and the only word I can describe this current effects options is "stupid". My outdated TD8 that's over a decade old has better options and is more advance when it comes to "editing" capabilities and to make it worst its from the same company. Roland's thinking of making a lower priced product of a winning product like the TD30 was a great move, but the way Roland designed the TD25 is nothing short of dumb. There is a current software upgrade to version 1.10 and it adds three more optional drum kits making it a total of six kits per category and claims to upgrade some of the audio capabilities. Easy to get around the basic layout of knobs and buttons that give you instant editing options on the fly, but again some of the options like "treble, bass and others" on the front are "group" oriented. This means every time you make an adjustment for a kit - the changes you make will be transferred to all the kits you call up. Lacking of common sense? You bet! In this world of digital technology it is unnecessary to leave out more and better options all because you want to create a "cheaper" version that more of the poor and less fortunate will be able to experience your new stuff is just plain anti musician. Roland come on do you really think drummers are that stupid? Leaving out the ability to assign my own instruments to the dual trigger pads is another gripe and a serious one at that too. You are stuck with Roland's choices as to the instruments assigned to the pads. Really? After all the technological advancements in the world Roland decides to go back to the stone ages?Final thoughts... I love the TD25 module. I am disappointed my outdated TD8 has better options than the latest greatest Roland drum module. I am disappointed in Roland's engineering on this module that could have with the least amount of effort and expense been made instead to a "super" deal and product. Thank God Sweetwater put the TD25 on sale and saved me a few hundred dollars from the other guys. Sweetwater has made it possible for me to justify purchasing the TD25 after learning of the deficiencies of the editing capabilities.

Why the 2 stars

This is not about the sounds and reliability of pads by Roland. It is the module and what it offers. After the TD-12 and what it offered in terms of inputs and outputs Roland cut corners and use a breakout cable that is used on beginner kits on a module that is supposed to be a mid level kit to replace the TD-12. I am ok with fewer kits and sounds since most drummers do not use them all. I would be happy with just maple, birch, mahogany, v pro, jazz and studio kit for example with 14 inputs and at least four outputs but a breakout cable used for beginner kits. You can only add one more aux pad and one more cymbal pad. What if a cable goes bad on a gig? You have to replace the whole break out cable. The break out cable is not cheap and requires unhooking all the pads and then connecting them again just because you cannot replace the one cable. This is Roland thinking on how to cut cost and increase the price. If this was a low end or beginner kit at $1500 and below then a breakout cable is ok since you don't gig often but practice. The other drum companies are still offering 12+ inputs on mid level kits. Serious drummers need options and Roland is cutting corners and relying on devoted fans to buy what they sell based on the name. If Roland wants to stay ahead, bring back a modified TD-12 with upgraded sounds with all the inputs and outputs we need for gigs so if a cable gets damaged we can replace it and keep playing. If you want to cut cost then do it in the library of sounds. Yamaha is using real sound recordings of their high end acoustic kits and the rolls on snare and cymbals are very nice now. A couple of other companies are stepping up their game finally so Roland needs to get with it or get left behind because they are too expensive now and drummers are not happy with them cutting corners.
