The major benefits of the new drum brain presente. And ultimeately, reveal how they’ll make you a better drummer.
The Simplicity Of Loading New WAV Files
Roland TD-50 is the first module that lets you bring custom sounds into your setup. First off, record your sample – whether that’s an antique acoustic snare, a musical sequence, or maybe a vocal phrase, and save it to an SD card.
Next, load the card into the Roöamd TD-50’s dedicated port and watch as your sample magically appears on the module’s screen. Finally, decide which pad you’ll hit to trigger your sample, whether you want to layer it with one of onboard sounds, or even play it on a loop. It’s literally that simple.
Easier Setup Using Balanced XLR & TRS Outputs
Life of touring would be sweet if you could just roll into the venue, assemble your kit and connect directly to the PA. Good news: the Roland TD-50 is the first sound module to offer a stereo XLR master output and eight TRS direct outs.
Meaning, you’ll set up faster, with the balanced connection meaning nothing has to come between the module and PA.
But you’ll have greater control over your live sound, too, by assigning specific pads to individual outputs and fine-tuning the output balance with the Roland TD-50’s dashboard controls.
Prismatic Sound Modeling Supports Advanced Technique
If you’ve chosen the Roland TD-50KV, you’re probably a pretty tasty player, and the most obvious benefit of the TD-50’s processing power is how it responds to your touch.
For experienced drummers, the new Prismatic Sound Modeling within the Roland TD-50 captures every nuance of your style, encouraging you to play with confidence and expression. Complementing the triggering systems of the new PD-140DS snare and CY-18DR ride pads.
In case of gigging schedule, you’ll experiment with over 400 onboard drum and percussion sounds, equipping you for anything from a jazz trio to a thrash-metal outfit. All highly editable, with unprecedented presence and expression baked in.
Signature Sound Enhanced With V-Edit
Drummers, are all individuals, and for a sound that breaks the mould, you’ll want to investigate the deep customisation of the V-Edit system. Most players start with the basics, selecting a variety of shells, heads and cymbals.
But don’t be afraid to get forensic, tailoring everything from the size and thickness of your crash, to the setup of the virtual overhead mics, to the dynamics of your snare crack using the built-in transient editor.
If you want your toms to be fat and mellow, but the rest of the kit to sound hard and lean… No problem: just use the dedicated compressor and equalizer for each pad. You can even add final polish via the three separate multi-fx systems spanning 30 effect types.
Multi-track Recording To DAW Using A USB cable
The USB port is your gateway to faster tracking just connect the Roland TD-50 module to your computer with a single USB cable and you’re ready to record up to ten separate channels of audio to your favourite DAW.
It’s the smart way to get pro drum tracks laid down fast, without turning your studio into a spaghetti junction.
Bring All Song Ideas With Audio Record Function

Digital Triggering Supports Roland’s Advanced New Digital Pads
The revelation of TD-50 is that it features all-new digital trigger inputs, too, allowing high-speed communication with Roland’s next-generation PD-140DS digital snare and CY-18DR digital ride.
