The Closest Thing to Playing an Acoustic Kit

  • Practice along to loops or click tricks, then save sessions via SDHC.
  • USB multitracking – record 10 channels of multitrack audio to Mac or PC at 96kHz.
  • Snapshot lets you A/B kit changes before you commit to them.
  • MIDI in/out captures performances and lets you changes kits later.
  • 1/4″ and 1/8″ headphone outputs.
  • 1/8″ aux input lets you jam along to your phone or laptop.
  • 3 digital trigger inputs.
  • 16 analog trigger inputs: 6 drums, 6 cymbals, 4 aux.
  • 8 balanced 1/4″ direct outs for individual treatment and level control.
  • Send pre-mixed audio via balanced stereo XLR or unbalanced stereo 1/4″.
  • MDS-Grand rack is internally wired for clean staging, and tall enough to support 22″ kick drums.

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 Modeling 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.

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 rimshots, 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?r. 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.

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 a performance to translate through traditional eCymbals, Sweetwater recommends putting the Roland CY-18DR V-Cymbal digital ride through its paces. You won’t be disappointed.

Roland V-Drums are the undisputed kings of digital drum shaping. And with the TD-50K’s Prismatic Sound Modeling 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 Modeling 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.
