Roland Intros SPD-SX Special Edition Sampling Pad

2018 NAMM Show: Roland has introduced the SPD-SX Special Edition, an enhanced version of their SPD-SX Sampling Pad.

The SPD-SX Special Edition offers all the functionality of the standard SPD-SX, but with expanded onboard storage capacity. Users can store up to 16 GB of samples on board.

Roland’s SPD-SX Sampling Pad is a professional pad sampler, designed for triggering custom samples, loops, and even complete backing tracks. It also supports real-time sample capture via its Multi-Pad Sampling function.

With its expanded memory, the SPD-SX Special Edition supports up to 50 hours of mono sample storage. This allows players to load a completely library of studio-quality WAV samples.

The SPD-SX Special Edition comes with Ableton Live Lite. Sounds played in Ableton Live Lite can be sampled in the SPD-SX Special Edition, and sounds played on the pads can be recorded into the software.

The SPD-SX Special Edition can also be used as a MIDI pad controller for recording expressive MIDI tracks in Ableton Live Lite or any popular DAW. Connecting the sampling pad to a computer requires only a USB cable.

The SPD-SX Special Edition also comes with Roland’s SPD-SX Wave Manager software. Users can import audio files directly from the computer to the instrument, assign samples to pads, and easily organize a library with thousands of samples.
