Immerse yourself in a premium drumming experience
VAD706 not only sounds and feels great, it's also beautiful to behold. With its full-size shells, two-piece hi-hat, large cymbals and double-braced chrome stands, this premium kit has a presence that makes you want to drum all day and show it off to everyone.
Prismatic Sound Modeling: feel the difference
Prismatic Sound Modeling technology in TD-50X makes electronic drums come to life like no other system can, infusing multi-layer samples recorded in world-class studios with sophisticated behavior modeling techniques refined over more than two decades. Inspired by a prism, which refracts a single ray of light into every color in the spectrum, Roland's revolutionary approach produces an unlimited array of sonic colors with every stick hit. The initial attack is followed by a complex mix of rich overtones, just like playing acoustic drums and cymbals. You can feel the sound changing in reaction to your expression, creating that magical, interactive bond that fully immerses you in the emotion of the moment. From subtle ghost notes and detailed articulations to the loudest and most intense playing, your drumming has no boundaries with TD-50X.
Digital snare, ride and hi-hat
Roland's groundbreaking digital pad technology is a major leap forward in electronic drumming, putting unmatched depth and dimension under your sticks. Precision multi-sensors in the snare, ride and hi-hat pads work in complete harmony with the TD-50X module, capturing every nuance with incredible definition and detail. Lightning-fast detection enables you to play all your natural acoustic techniques, such as muting the ride with a finger touch or switching seamlessly between head, rimshot and cross-stick playing on the snare. And VH-14D takes electronic hi-hat playing to new heights, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation and open/closed resolution never before available until now.
The natural feel of acoustic drums
VAD706 features Roland's famous multi-ply mesh heads, with three-layer heads on the snare and floor tom and two-layer heads on the rack toms providing natural stick resistance and rebound that's customizable for your individual playing style. Burying the beater into the specially designed kick drum is completely satisfying thanks to physical air resistance that feels just like playing an acoustic kick. The organic experience extends to the toms as well, with the real wood shells and traditional mounts providing a feel that's uncannily acoustic in nature.
Imagine acoustic drums that are mic'd, processed and mixed in a world-class studio: that's what you get when you call up a preset on TD-50X. Developed with top drummers and recording engineers, these inspiring kits let you take on any style at the touch of a button, from traditional jazz to full-throttle metal.
Build your signature drum kit
Going beyond the presets, TD-50X allows you to customize things at every level, just as you would with an acoustic kit. Make quick adjustments to tuning and muffling or dive deep and build a kit from the ground up by selecting shell depths, drumhead types, cymbal characteristics and much more. Then, put the kit in the space of your choice using PureAcoustic Ambience, with full control of room type, reverberation, stereo width and other parameters at your command.
Craft your sound with studio precision
After you've tweaked the details of your kit, make it fully come alive with TD-50X's impressive array of studio tools. Adjust mic settings for various kit elements, then dial in sounds with equalizers, compressors and other processing. And for spaciousness and color, tap into the wide selection of high-quality reverbs and multi-effects.
Powerful connectivity for stage and studio
With a rear panel loaded with connectivity, the TD-50X module is ready to take on the practical needs of any playing situation. Stereo XLR master outs and eight TRS direct outs allow you to send any drums you like to an audio console via balanced connections. For computer-based music production, you have the ability to send up to 32 channels of digital audio over USB for premium-quality transfer. MIDI I/O is also supported over USB and traditional 5-pin connectors.
Expand your options
Using the TD-50X module's four auxiliary analog trigger inputs, you can easily expand VAD706 as your needs grow. Augment your setup with more cymbal pads, another floor tom or a small trigger pad like Roland BT-1. Or double up by adding an additional kick drum for maximum stage impact.
Your personal practice partner
TD-50X is loaded with practice features that make every session fun, productive and rewarding. Improve your timing with the metronome and Coach mode exercises, or simply jam along with music played from a smartphone or laptop. The onboard recorder lets you capture and review your playing at any time, complete with the ability to export audio (with or without backing music) for sharing with others. And you can extend your practice even further with Melodics, a free desktop app that comes with 40 lessons, plus unlimited access via a subscription when you're ready for more.
