Every musician is individual, and your instruments need to complement your creativity and performance style. The SPD::ONE WAV PAD 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 by 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.
Playing with backing tracks brings studio-level production to the smallest of gigs. And with the SPD::ONE WAV PAD, anything you can record in the studio can be brought onto the live stage. But to stay in time with the backing track, you’ll need a click track, and the SPD::ONE WAV PAD can help. Imported audio click tracks that you create in your DAW to accompany your backing track will play simultaneously. But here’s the clever bit—while the backing track can only be heard via the main and headphones outputs, the click is automatically routed to the headphones only for stage monitoring. As you play, the volume balance between the backing and click tracks can be adjusted using the Balance Mix knob. The headphones output is designed to produce ample volume for monitoring, ensuring you hear the sound even on loud stages.
While the SPD::ONE WAV PAD is simple to use, it can also handle some seriously creative setups. Up to three audio files can be layered together, so a single hit can produce three sounds at once. Imagine hearing a deep 808 kick sound combined with a hand clap and vocal phrase—this unique layering function has endless possibilities. You can even trigger different sounds by playing different velocities. For example, when playing hi-hat sounds, you can trigger a closed hi-hat by striking gently and an open hi-hat when you hit harder. The SPD::ONE WAV PAD makes it easy to put on a performance with surprising versatility.
