Every musician is individual, and your instruments need to complement your creativity and performance style. The SPD::ONE ELECTRO lets you play the way you want to; this compact digital percussion pad can be played with drumsticks, hands, or even your feet. What’s more, you can adjust sensitivity and trigger threshold settings in seconds using two control dials on the side of the unit. Drummers and percussionists will love the solid feel and natural rebound, guitarists can confidently stomp on the unit for four-on-the-floor beats, and practically any musician can play sounds by hand without fear of sore palms and fingers at the end of the night.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO contains 22 iconic sounds, including drum and percussion sounds from Roland’s legendary TR-808 and TD-909 drum machines. Inside you’ll find fat snares, hi-hats, hand claps, and more, and the pitch of every instrument can be changed on the fly using a single knob. You can even add reverb or delay in seconds with a second knob. With the SPD::ONE ELECTRO, bolstering your backbeat with electronic sounds has never been simpler.
Operating the SPD::ONE ELECTRO is very simple. There are no complex submenus or button sequences—just select your sounds by turning the bank selector to any of the 12 positions, and hit the pad to play. With just four main knobs on the front panel, everything you need is at hand, including the ability to customize sounds, adjust overall volume, and balance levels on the fly.
The SPD::ONE ELECTRO is loaded with iconic sounds, but sometimes you just need to use your own samples. Via USB, you can import WAV audio files up to five seconds long simply by dragging and dropping your files. Your sounds can then be modified just like any of the internal sounds using the tuning and effect control knobs. If you need to use sounds longer than five seconds, check out the dedicated SPD::ONE WAV PAD, which can handle up to 4 GB of WAV audio.
Thanks to its built-in USB-MIDI support, the SPD::ONE ELECTRO can be used as a compact digital pad controller for a computer DAW. This provides a great way to play software-based sounds and enhance your productions with realistic MIDI percussion tracks.
