The Roland SPD::ONE PERCUSSION has been launched and is a cool little percussion pad worth checking out if you are into expanding out your range of percussion sounds in a compact little unit. This will be at home with any acoustic or electronic drumkit, and a multi-instrumentalist can mount one up to add new sounds to live or recorded performances.
Top sounds - from snares to cowbells, tambourines and more, and you can even upload your own sounds as part of the sonic range you'll get.
Get your groove on by playing the SPD ONE with your feet, hands or drumsticks. It's very versatile with the sounds being highly adjustable for volume, tone and more.
It will be ready to rock with AC power or pop some batteries into it.
If you're a percussionist, drummer or DJ or producer, this handy percussion pad could add a lot of excitement and expand your tones.
It's compact, easy to use and it's going to be hot here at Mega Music.

A Digital Percussion Pad You Can Play with Sticks, Hands, or Feet
Every musician is individual, and your instruments need to complement your creativity and performance style. The SPD::ONE PERCUSSION lets you play the way you want to; this compact digital percussion pad can be played with drumsticks, hands, or even your feet. What’s more, you can adjust sensitivity and trigger threshold settings in seconds using two control dials on the side of the unit. Drummers and percussionists will love the solid feel and natural rebound, guitarists can confidently stomp on the unit for four-on-the-floor beats, and practically any musician can play sounds by hand without fear of sore palms and fingers at the end of the night.
Take Instruments to the Gig That You Can’t Fit in Your Bag, from Shakers to Timpani
The SPD::ONE PERCUSSION features a total of 22 onboard sounds. Each is a faithful reproduction of an acoustic sound, so you can use instruments that you wouldn’t normally bring, including kick drums, snare drums, gongs, and even timpani. While a shaker may be small and transportable, it still requires a microphone to be amplified on the stage; the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION can provide your shaker sound in one song, and a completely different instrument in the next song of the set. Adding great sounding accompaniments has never been this flexible, simple, or portable.
Easily Fits Into Any Instrument Setup
The SPD::ONE PERCUSSION is compact enough to fit into your existing instrument setup without needing to move your other gear. With the included mounting adapter, you can easily clamp the pad to a hi-hat, cymbal, or tom stand,* or even a mic stand. Alternately, the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION can be played without mounting it to anything at all—simply place it on the floor, a tabletop, or any solid surface.
*Fits percussion stand rod diameters from 8.0-12.7 mm.
Portable and Built for the Road
You can take the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION wherever you want, thanks to its compact size and battery operation. It’s lightweight enough to be dropped into a bag or instrument case, and robust enough to travel thanks to its metal-body construction. You can even play and produce your own sounds on the move via headphones, and include them in your set list that night.
Easy Control Using Just Four Knobs
Operating the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION is very simple. There are no complex submenus or button sequences—just select your sounds by turning the bank selector to any of the 12 positions, and hit the pad to play. With just four main knobs on the front panel, everything you need is at hand, including the ability to customize sounds, adjust overall volume, and balance levels on the fly.
Enhance Your Performances with User Sample Import
The SPD::ONE PERCUSSION is loaded with great sounds, but sometimes you just need to use your own samples. Via USB, you can import WAV audio files up to five seconds long simply by dragging and dropping your files. Your sounds can then be modified just like any of the internal sounds using the tuning and effect control knobs. If you need to use sounds longer than five seconds, check out the dedicated SPD::ONE WAV PAD, which can handle up to 4 GB of WAV audio.
Compact MIDI Controller for DAW Music Production
Thanks to its built-in USB-MIDI support, the SPD::ONE PERCUSSION can be used as a compact digital pad controller for a computer DAW. This provides a great way to play software-based sounds and enhance your productions with realistic MIDI percussion tracks.
