The TD-9 Sound Module is the anchor of Roland's mid-line V-Drums kits. With hundreds of sounds, Real Audio® songs and patterns onboard, plus Scope and Quick Record/Quick Play practice functions, full V-Hi-Hat (VH-11) compatibility, and 3-way ride triggering available, the Roland TD-9 raises the bar significantly in its price range.

Fast, Friendly, Fun
No more squinting at a small screen -- the TD-9 is outfitted with a luxurious, large backlit display with accompanying oversized buttons and controls. Its friendly, icon-based user interface makes editing sounds and customizing kits fast and fun.

Interactive Innovation
Play along with Real Audio® backing songs to build your musical experience base. Use the USB port to play along with audio files of your choice (.WAV), back up your data, or save a "quick record" performance. The Quick Record and Quick Play features allow you to immediately record and play back solo drum parts, or drum parts performed with the backing songs.

Head/Rim shots on Toms and Bell/Bow/Edge shots on the ride cymbal
Head/rim shots on toms can be executed with the TD-9K and the TD-9KX V-Drums. Bell/Bow/Edge shots on the ride cymbal can be controlled only when using a CY-12R/C (included with the TD-9KX) or a CY-15R for the ride cymbal.

Built-in backing songs
The built-in songs in TD-9 Sound Module are audio, and even when you change the tempo, the quality is amazing and real. You will enjoy practicing more.

The sound module also has a Mute function for each musical part as well as an A-B repeat function. This helps you to concentrate on practicing with a specific instrument or song section repeatedly, and with very simple operations.

You can also record your drumming either in "solo" mode or along with the built-in songs and playback instantly to check your performance. (Quick Rec/Play function) You cannot save that performance separately, however.

SCOPE function
SCOPE function allows you to visualize on the display, in real time, the timing of your playing on each pad versus the metronome pulse. This is an excellent feature for timing accuracy.

Types of audio files played back from USB memory
The ONLY file type the Roland TD-9 can play back from the USB memory is the .WAV file format. MP3 playback is NOT possible.

Audio Data compatibility specs
File format: .WAV
Sampling rate: 44.1KHz
Bit rate: 8/16/24-bits

Mounting the TD-9 module
It is possible to mount the Roland TD-9 module to a stand other than MDS-9, but please take the following precautions:

1) Use the mounting plate and cables attached to the TD-9 module.
2) Depending on the setup, the cables attached to TD-9 may be too short when mounting on MDS-20/MDS-12 or another stand configuration. If this is the case, please use commercially available, STEREO, extension cables.

Storing the recorded data to an optional USB memory key?
You can store the recorded data, using Quick Rec, to an optional USB memory key for up to 100 different recorded performance data pieces as well as memory for another 50 kit configurations.

    Comments about Roland TD-9 Drum Sound Module:

    The TD-9 in a word is fantastic, amazing, great, super, you get the idea. This module has so many features and ways to tweak your kit that it is hard to describe. There are over 700 voices, but it is the number of ways you can tweak those voices, and the kits, that will blow you away. You can tune your drums, add muffling, many ambiance settings, quick rec & play, all 2-zone (the ride is 3-zone) inputs, USB port to import wav. files and much more. Do not wait, get this module NOW!

    best in class !!

    Comments about Roland TD-9 Drum Sound Module:

    let's face it..maybe Neil can buy a stack of TD-20X's and those pricey shells, but most workin' chumps have to get value for their money...I was able to get the TD-9SX(?) in 2008 (the full mesh kit with some add-ons a year later) for around $2k from dueling mgrs at GC and SW...GC met the deal as advertised, gave me 2 years free coverage also...the kit, for the money is the bomb, and the TD-9 is half of the story, these are the best sounding drums & perc on the market, the snares & toms explode through a home monitoring system(KRK 8's can't be beat), a PA, or Roland keyboard amp or monitoring system(if you can afford it). It has plenty of editing functions to customize your kits and comes with 50 ready to go drum & perc ensemble kits, as well as SFX, Industrial, Latin, Jazz, all styles are hear as well as all genres from the 40's jazz traps to Zep 70's kits, 90's fusion (Wekl). Roland does V-Drums better than anyone and always will. Get the full mesh, those rubber pads should only be used for add-ons...
