The Most Sophisticated V-Drums Yet

The Roland TD-50 sound module includes all-new kit sounds to inspire your best grooves and performances. Drums and cymbals are presented in stunning high resolution thanks to the Prismatic Sound Modeling engine, and with a level of expressiveness that even past V-Drums have been unable to touch. You can tailor the size and composition of each piece on your kit, or import your own libraries at will via SDHC cards. Then season to taste with onboard room reverb, compression, saturation, and EQ. You can even save snapshots of your kits to A/B any changes you make before committing.

On the kit side, the Roland TD-50KV's one-up/two-down tom configuration is a fresh change for modern players. As are the digital 14" snare pad and 18" ride pad with multi-sensor technology. Together with the TD-50, these give the kit unprecedented realism that is sure to make acoustic players feel right at home.

Build your dream kit with Roland's Prismatic Sound Modeling engine

V-Drums are the undisputed kings of digital drum shaping. And with the TD-50KV's Prismatic Sound Modeling engine, you can expect nuance and realism like never before. The TD-50KV's every onboard kit is crafted to sound great without tweaks. But for those times when you need a custom kit for a particular performance, Prismatic Sound Modeling has you covered. You have control over each drum shell's thickness and overtones. Each cymbal's size and thickness. You can even control virtual mic placement to dial in the right amount of natural ambience. Once you've found your sound, sweeten kick, snare, or toms with 30 types of built-in FX, including smooth multiband compression and saturation.

14" digital snare is advanced as your V-Drums

The heart of any modern drum kit, acoustic or electronic, is the snare drum. So it makes sense that the TD-50KV should include a snare pad that's as sophisticated as its sound module: the 14" Roland PD-140DS. Eight sensors across the head and rim accurately translate your performance to your V-Drums brain. This means fat backbeats, cutting rimshots, delicate ghost notes and brush sweeps, and cross-sticks that connect every time. And because of its 14" diameter, the Roland PD-140DS transitions seamlessly between your acoustic kit and back. Particular about your tuning? So are we at Sweetwater. Fortunately, the PD-140DS's 8-lug design and 3-ply mesh head make it easy to dial in whatever level of tightness or sponginess you desire.

18" digital ride is Roland's most convincing V-Cymbal yet

Electronic cymbals have a reputation for being utilitarian - a means to end. But the Roland CY-18DR invites players to bring their acoustic touch back to their eKit. This 18" V-Cymbal sways and plays like a real cymbal. Multiple sensors across the playing surface eliminate the feeling of zones - distinct edge, bow, and bell tones melt into one another seamlessly. And the Roland CY-18DR's multi-touch technology not only lets you choke crash attacks with your hand, but also even soften cymbal attacks with a finger's touch. If you have trouble getting the full emotion of a performance to translate through traditional eCymbals, Sweetwater recommends putting the Roland CY-18DR V-Cymbal digital ride through its paces. You won't be disappointed.

Import custom libraries at will

Whether you're modeling your acoustic kit or copping the latest Slate samples, Roland makes it easy to incorporate these sounds into your V-Drum TD-50. High-capacity SDHC cards let you create an arsenal of custom libraries and call them up on your V-Drums at will.

Scrap or store kit changes with Snapshot

Tone tweakers abound here at Sweetwater. What we love about the Roland V-Drums TD-50 sound module is that you can edit kits to your heart's content without committing. Use the Snapshot feature to quickly A/B the before and after. And if you like what you've done, save it. If not, scrap it and start over.

Practice and perform like never before

With its sophisticated brushed black finish to its expressive kit sounds, the TD-50 is built for the stage. But you may be surprised to learn what a difference the TD-50 can make to your practice hours. Jam along to the TD-50's built-in metronome to practice septuplets and strengthen your internal click. Or loop a groove and solo over it to build your lick vocabulary. What's neat is you can record yourself playing to a click or backing track right onto an SDHC card. This is a handy way to track ideas and share with bandmates.

Take control of the way you I/O

The versatility of the TD-50 is fully seen in its flexible in and outs. Send drum kits pre-mixed to your FOH engineer using balanced stereo XLR outs, or directly into your home stereo speaker system with unbalanced stereo 1/4" outs. And if you've got mixer channels to spare, send your kick, snare, toms, and cymbals separately via balanced 1/4" direct outs for individual treatment and level control. MIDI in/out even lets you track your performance and replace sounds at a later time.

Record 10 channels of multitrack audio over USB

Sweetwater drummers love our eDrums for home recording. And with the Roland V-Drum TD-50 module, you can do it all over USB - no interface required. You get your 10 main output channels in glorious 96kHz. This means you can enjoy studiophile drum recording, even in your apartment, at any time of day.

Roland TD-50KV

I was playing on a Yamaha Stage Custom that was muted 6-ways to Sunday because I live in a new apartment. Still got complaints with the Bass. I need an alternative kit to keep the peace with my neighbors but I did not want to sacrifice the feel of a real kit for when I play live. My #1 prerequisite led me to the TD-50KV Yes it's expensive. No doubt about it. How much would you pay to have a fleet of different kits of different components at your finger tips? There are 50 canned kits of which I really only use maybe 6-8 of them however there are placeholders for you to customize your own personal favorites. The selection of individual components and design is incredible and the tweaking and tuning of each truly helps to make your kit exactly what you want. Stewart Copelands toms, Bonzo's snare. You can also maximize your kit by configuring the individual triggers to different components in one. For example. 3 triggers in 1 crash=3 different components. If you can eliminate the resonation in the shells, you can separate the rim and head triggers in 3 toms to give you 6. On to the good stuff. Digital triggers. The snare is absolutely amazing and words can't describe the sound, feedback, feel and realism of this component. Cross sticking is much much better that the previous models. buzz roll? yup. 14" makes playing as real as it can get. The 18" ride is very cool. I still need to tot with the trigger sensitivity but still it's very realistic. You can mix out to your laptop via USB with Rolands driver so you can maximize your storage capacity. I also mix-in drumless tracks off Youtube, Pandora music or anything I want. I'm sure there's more I can do but I'm still having too much fun exploring what the sound module has to offer. I got in on the 48 month 0% financing so it was an easy purchase for me. No regrets other than I'm not getting anything done around the apartment.
