      Roland SPD-30 Octapad (108260001)
Availability:  


Portable, powerful, percussion pad perfect for your productions and performances!

The Roland Octapad SPD-30 blends the world's most essential sounds with the latest percussion triggering technology. Roland wraps the Octapad in a road-tough package that's ready for the most demanding performers.

Roland's original Octapad profoundly changed the landscape of electronic percussion. The size of a briefcase, the Octapad offered drummers and percussionists the equivalent of an entire electronic rig in one self-contained unit—a new level of convenience and expression. Now, decades later, another exciting chapter in Octapad history begins.

Sound Bank
Unlike the original Octapad PAD-8, which was strictly a MIDI controller, the Roland Octapad SPD-30 is a controller that's packed with its own internal bank of sounds. Fifty kits are built into the SPD-30—essential sounds that span a musical universe of styles. You can customize the sounds with the onboard controls for tuning, muffling, attack, pitch sweep, and more. Having a Roland Octopad is like having a truckload of customizable drum and percussion instruments in one portable package.

Multi-Effects
Based on Roland's world-leading effects technology, the SPD-30's multi-effects engine will take your performances to another level. The Octopad has 30 types of internal multi-effects onboard, plus EQ, limiter, and seven ambiance types.

Phrase Loop Function
The onboard Phrase Loop function lets you instantly create layered loops and phrases. You can record and store 50 phrases internally, with each containing up to three layers. You can also save your phrase data on your USB Memory.

Advanced Triggering Technology
The SPD-30 Octopad benefits from Roland's most advanced V-Drum triggering technology. Each pad is a separate, isolated unit, providing the ultimate in sensitivity with complete crosstalk rejection. In addition, you can connect four dual-trigger inputs plus a hi-hat controller (compatible with Roland FD-8, VH-11) to create a mini drum set with external pads (Roland KD/PD/PDX/CY series), as well as to accept triggers from acoustic drums through Roland's RT series.

Roland SPD-30 Octapad Features:

  • 8 trigger pads with hundreds of sounds
    50 drum kits
    Packed with new percussion sounds from around the world, plus 30 types of multi-effects
    The latest pad-sensing technology developed for V-Drums provides even and accurate pad triggering with excellent isolation between pads
    Four dual-trigger inputs plus hi-hat controller for adding pads to create a mini kit, or for accepting triggers from acoustic drums
    Ambience with equalizer and limiter
    Phrase Loop function inspires your creativity; record your playing in real time and overdub up to three layers
    USB connectivity for MIDI and memory storage
    Large, backlit LCD and pad indicator lights for easy operation onstage or in any environment
    Rugged, roadworthy design

  • GREAT PRODUCT

    As reviewed by anmproductionz on 5/11/2010

    I Tried this padset at WGI World Championships. Roland had a booth and I was able to spend a lot of time toying with this incredible machine. You can't resample any outside audio you would like but you can expand outside the 8 pads(i.e. triggers on the kick or snare). The sounds are amazing.

  • GET ONE NOW!!!

    As reviewed by STEVEN ORTIZ on 8/30/2013

    Great product!!! I recommend the SPD-30 to anyone looking to either add electronic percussion/sounds to their acoustic set-up or looking for an electronic sound source and midi/pad controller. The samples are excellent AND extremely editable. I'm using the SPD-30 to fire samples from two V-Drum pads mixed into my acoustic kit and to fire samples with my acoustic kick and snare and it works perfectly. The response from the SPD-30 and its ability to reproduce grace notes with a truly acoustic feel (from the on board pads, external pads and triggers) is the best I've found. I have been playing and touring using a mix of electronic and acoustic drums for longer than I care to mention and I don't know how I ever lived without the SPD-30.
