Roland SPD::One Electronic Percussion Pads Now Available

Roland has announced the availability of the SPD::ONE electronic percussion pad line, a series of compact electronic percussion pads that can be played with drumsticks, hands, or feet.

The four models in the SPD::ONE series run on batteries or AC power and offer feature sets tailored for different musical needs. Common features include a highly responsive pad surface that can be played like a drum, hand percussion instrument, or foot-triggered stomp box. A knob-based interface provides quick access to sound selection, volume level, and other parameters, while side-mounted controls offer easy adjustment of the playing response.

Each model also includes separate main and headphones outputs.

Each SPD::ONE model can be used on a tabletop or floor, or clamped to a drum or mic stand using the included mounting hardware.

USB-MIDI is also supported, allowing musicians to use an SPD::ONE pad to input MIDI data and trigger sounds in music software.
