Roland TD30 Review

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 @ 11:02 AM
posted by: admin

As a drummer that used the TD10 for recording and live performance for 15 years. I was somewhat disappointed with many drum machines that followed.. until the TD30 came along.The TD-30KV is the latest addition to the formidable V-Drum family, and has taken center stage from the former flagship TD-20KX.
This was a welcome enhancement that gave an extended lease of life to the TD-20, offering many more sounds, improved V-editing facilities, additional ambient effects etc. However, the module lacked USB connectivity and was (even with the upgrade), beginning to be left behind in the technology stakes.
The TD30 features Roland’s SuperNATURAL Behaviour Modelling digital signal processing technology.
The Super NATURAL drum sounds are created from high-quality multi-samples of real drum instruments and are said to be completely transparent to the player. Each Super NATURAL sound is translated by the Behaviour Modelling engine, which acts as the go-between interpreter, remodeling or ‘virtually’ reconstructing the sound from the SuperNATURAL sound engine.
Every drum sound created responds dynamically, seamlessly switching the individual samples, depending on how hard the pads are struck and at which position, enabling a completely natural playing experience. Band mates are amazed at how real these drums sound, and yet I can give them the digital enhanced sounds of the future too.
I’ll give you another update after I’ve used it some more gigs this year. But for now I’d call the TD30 a safe investment for drummers who are looking for a very versatile drum brain for your electronic kit.
