5-piece Electronic Drum Set with Mesh Heads, 4 x Cymbals, and TD-50 Sound Module
The Closest Thing to Playing an Acoustic Kit
The Roland TD-50K includes all-new sounds to inspire your best grooves and performances. Drums and cymbals are presented in stunning high resolution thanks to the Prismatic Sound Modelling 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 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 pad side, the Roland TD-50K’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 module, these give the kit unprecedented realism that is sure to make acoustic players feel right at home.
Dream up any kit through Prismatic Sound Modelling
Roland V-Drums are the undisputed kings of digital drum shaping. And with the TD-50K’s Prismatic Sound Modelling engine, you can expect nuance and realism like never before. The TD-50K’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 Modelling 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 plays like the real thing
The heart of any modern drum kit, acoustic or electronic, is the snare drum. So it makes sense that the TD-50K 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 rim shots, delicate ghost notes and brush sweeps, and natural 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 Musiekwereld. 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 performance to translate through traditional eCymbals, Musiekwereld 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 sampling your acoustic kit or using the latest third-party libraries, Roland makes it easy to incorporate custom sounds into your V-Drums TD-50 sound module. 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 Musiekwereld. 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 multi-track audio over USB
Musiekwereld 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.
