Roland V-Drums TD-50 Drum Sound Module

Electric drum module featuring an advanced processor and newly developed Prismatic Sound Modeling
MFR# TD-50

Product Description

As an ambitious pro drummer, you know that anything less than the ultimate sound and feel will hold you back. Introducing the flagship Roland V-Drums TD-50 Drum Sound Module, created for top-flight live performance, intense practice sessions, and eclectic studio work. Featuring an advanced processor and newly developed Prismatic Sound Modeling, the TD-50 delivers Roland’s most impressive and wide-ranging sounds yet. In addition to traditional analog trigger inputs, the module is equipped with all-new digital trigger inputs for high-speed communication with the multi-element sensor systems in the PD-140DS snare and CY-18DR ride pads. Meanwhile, deep editing features and flexible connectivity put you in charge. With unmatched sound quality, response, and expression, the TD-50 is the new pro standard in electronic drum sound modules.

Dynamic Prismatic Sound Modeling Brings Your Drumming to Life

Great drummers demand great performance. The new TD-50 is a powerful new drum sound module whose original Prismatic Sound Modeling technology means that every element of your playing style is caught and conveyed in thrilling detail. Working alongside Roland’s newly developed digital snare and ride pads—which feature Roland's most advanced trigger-sensing technology yet—the TD-50’s high-resolution processing gives you the most lifelike, resonant, and expressive sounds you’ll hear from an electronic kit.

Customize Your Sound for Live Sessions and Studio Work

A variety of musical scenarios are no problem with the TD-50, which offers a choice of onboard kits to suit every session. This advanced module also supports deep sound customization, including basic adjustment of heads and shells, layering of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience. For tailored performance, a compressor and three-band EQ can be controlled for each pad individually, while three independent multi-effect sections let you treat specific drums with 30 effect types such as delay, flanger, saturator, and many others. The two-band multi-compressor and four-band equalizer on the output let you change the overall dynamics and tonal balance, depending on whether you’re in the studio or on stage. And with new Snapshot feature, you can quickly assess and compare any edits to your sounds before making permanent changes.

Play with Your Own WAV Files and Record Easily to a DAW

As a creative drummer, you’ll love the TD-50’s open-ended connectivity, which lets inspiration flow in both directions. Using the module’s SD card slot, it’s easy to trigger your own WAV files using any of the TD-50KV’s drum pads, and you can loop or layer them alongside the internal sounds while controlling volume and tone via the TD-50’s front panel. When you write a great groove, simply connect the TD-50 module to a computer via USB for multi-track recording direct to your favorite DAW. Up to 10 channels can be recorded separately, then easily edited for tone color and more. There’s even a choice of audio sampling formats: 48 kHz, 96 kHz, and the standard 44.1 kHz.

Hit the Stage Faster with Balanced Connections to a PA

If you play live every night, the TD-50KV will help avoid the time and effort of a lengthy setup. The TD-50 is the first V-Drums module to feature an XLR stereo master out and eight TRS direct outs, allowing for a balanced connection to a PA system. Assigning a pad to any of the individual outputs is simple, while convenient master/headphones volume controls and group faders balance the output levels instantly. You can also assign the volume to control headphones only, perfect for adjusting the monitor level without affecting the PA signal.

Practice Features to Develop Your Technique

The TD-50 doesn’t just let your drum technique shine—it actively improves it too, offering onboard features that help you get the best from practice sessions. Whether you lock down your timing with the Quiet Count function or play along to backing tracks via the SD card slot, it’s easy to get inspired, even when you’re practicing alone.

Record Drum Performances

The TD-50 also includes a unique, easy-to-use audio recording function—simply hit the record button and start playing to capture your performance. If you’re playing to a click or backing track, there’s an option to record just the drums, or to record them with the click or track included. Once captured, your recordings can be easily exported for upload and editing in your DAW. With the TD-50, it’s never been easier for a drummer to record grooves.
