Product Description

Roland TD-20 Percussion Sound Module represents a giant leap forward in V-Drums technology. This flagship module boasts incredible sound quality, all-new sounds and unsurpassed expressiveness. The COSM® modeling-based V-Editing is also enhanced, giving drummers impressive new cymbal control, adjustable snare drum buzz and kick beater selection. Factor in a new digital output and an expansion slot for future upgrades, and the TD-20 is simply the best percussion sound module Roland has ever made.


The Best Sounds and Expressiveness
Without a doubt, the TD-20 is Roland's best-sounding percussion module ever with over 500 new sounds, plus superb expressiveness and dynamic range when used with the PD-125BK/105BK V-Pads and VH-12 V-Hi-Hat. Superior sensitivity lets drummers play more naturally and without having to adjust their playing technique. For example, rim shot and bass drum sounds can be varied depending on how they are played. And with Roland's new interval control technology, drummers can create more realistic snare rolls and cymbal swells. Close your eyes and you'll swear you're playing the real thing!

Advanced V-Editing
Vastly expanded for unlimited expression, the TD-20's modeling-based V-Editing starts from careful analysis of an entirely new set of drum sounds. From there, drummers are free to change parameters like the cymbal size, along with the type of "sizzle" (i.e. rivets or chain), and the microphone position. Several types of kick beaters can also be selected, including felt, wood and plastic. The TD-20 can even model snare drum "buzz" (the resonance created on the tom and bass drum) for startling realism. It's the subtle nuances like these that really make the difference during performance and recording.

Enhanced Performance Features
Whether used live or in the studio, the TD-20 offers a host of powerful features designed to make life easy. Eight group faders let drummers adjust the relative part levels, while 15 Pad Compressors and Pad EQs make shaping sounds easy. There's also a 6-part sequencer loaded with preset backing patterns and plenty of room for your own, plus onboard effects like Ambience and a Mastering Room for adding compression and EQ to the overall sound. A choice of 10 analog outputs and a S/DPIF digital output offer plenty of options when mixing live or in the studio.

Convenient CompactFlash Storage and More
New to the TD-20 is a CompactFlash slot, which can be used for storing custom drum kits and sequencer patterns with optional memory cards. An expansion bay located on the underside means there's room for upgrades down the road. The TD-20 also features Roland's V-LINK technology. Using an optional DV-7PR Video Presenter from Edirol, drummers can trigger images or change cameras from the pads or kick.
