Roland completely re-defined electronic drumming with the iconic V-Drums in 1997. Outstanding dynamics, realistic sound, great response and playability have been hallmarks of V-Drums, and has set the standard by which all other brands of electronic drums are measured. With the TD-50 Drum Sound Module as the centerpiece, Roland has elevated the expressiveness, response, and playability to a new level. All new sounds have more realism, natural resonance, clarity, and a wider dynamic range to capture every nuance of the player's technique.
To achieve the capabilities of the TD-50's high-resolution sound engine, Roland has developed a new digital snare pad and ride cymbal that both include a multi-sensor system with digital connection to TD-50 Drum Sound Module. The professional editing functions of the sounds has been expanded allowing you for even more customizing options to shape sounds and create kits suitable for any style of music. A user sample import function has been added allowing the drummer to add their own .WAV files to the TD-50 to trigger your own sounds, loops, or even layer the imported samples internally to create unique new sounds to expand your creativity and musical expression. Additionally, audio output connections have been enhanced providing more flexibility for recording, live performance, or rehearsal and personal practice sessions.

Customize Your Kits
The TD-50 has various Drum KITs suitable for a wide range of music genres. You can also customize the sounds and kits creatively to fit your personal sound and taste. You can adjust parameters such as tuning or shell depth, cymbal size and thickness, overtone layering, and placement of overhead microphones. With enhanced professional editing parameters, you can easily create your own custom sound.
Digital effect processing is also fully supported. Each pad input includes its own individual compressor and 3-band EQ, as well as 3 independent multi-effectors. Each multi-effector includes 30 types of effects such as Delay, Flanger, Saturator, and others. Expand your creative options by assigning different effects to each individual drum, the effect system is extremely flexible. For recording or live use, a professional 2-band multi-compressor and a 4-band EQ to adjust the overall output balance, dynamic range, and volume.
User-sample import and sound layering
The TD-50 has an SD card slot to import external sound data (.wav) and use the imported sounds in the same way as an internal TD-50 instrument sound. Not only by simply playing your favorite sound by itself, but you can also use the imported sound as an internal instrument and layer with the another sound or create a loop for even more creative options.
14-inch Digital Snare Pad
Featuring a high-resolution multi-sensor system, the PD-140DS responds accurately and naturally to your drumming technique and nuances with acoustic-like snare drum playability. With a digital connection to the TD-50 Drum Sound Module, this 14" V-Pad has the expressiveness to please even the most discriminating player.
18-inch Digital Ride Cymbal
The CY-18DR V-Cymbal Digital Ride responds to varied cymbal playing techniques to produce sound accurately and naturally. Comfortable to play, the 18" diameter size is a more traditional size for comfortable playability and the physical motion of an acoustic ride cymbal. The CY-18DR Digital Ride Cymbal is compatible with TD-50 Drum Sound Module digital pad connection. Thanks to newly developed multi-element sensor system, all nuances of ride cymbal play are faithfully reproduced.
Multi-track audio recording with a single USB cable
With only a single USB cable connected to your Mac or PC, the TD-50 makes multi-track digital recording easy. (Audio: Output 10ch/Input 4ch, plus MIDI Data) The audio sampling format is compatible with 48kHz and 96kHz in addition to the standard 44.1kHz, making it ideal for any DAW environment. Simply selecting a kick or snare (for example) for independent recording is easily accomplished with the TD-50 module. You can quickly edit and adjust the sound balance and tone, and assign the recording input channel of the required instrument with your DAW. When you input audio data from your computer to the TD-50, you can control the audio routing and volume by using knobs on the TD-50 panel. This is ideal for controlling click tracks or backing tracks from the computer and creating a custom monitor mix for the player for headphones, in-ear monitors, or monitor speakers
Professional Master Output and Direct Out functionality
The TD-50 includes balanced XLR Master Out (first in the V-Drums lineup) and 8 Direct Out (TRS) to connect with a live PA system without the need of a direct box. Assigning a pad to these Direct Outputs is flexible and easily selected with the function in the TD-50. On the top panel, there are convenient master and phones volume knobs, and vertically-lined group faders to balance the output level for each pad instantly. If you setup the fader group function only for phones output, you can easily control your monitor mix without sending your mix to the PA front of house or to another band member's monitor.
Personal Practice Assistance
Even professional drummers need time to practice when not rehearsing, performing, or recording. The TD-50 has a simple personal practice assistance function named "Quiet Count" (an exercise found on most current V-Drums modules). This exercise helps develop and strengthen the player's "inner clock" by improving accuracy at different tempos.
