A High-Quality Drum Module with Rhythm Training Exercises

The TD-3 Percussion Sound Module boasts 114 new, high-quality drum and percussion sounds arranged into 32 kits, plus an easy-to-use interface so you can start playing right away. Finding the right drum kit is simple: just use the Phrase Preview function to hear a short demo for each kit. Each kit’s sounds can be enhanced using 15 types of built-in Ambience effects and compression. And with Roland’s enhanced Rhythm Coach onboard, drummers can improve their timing, speed and endurance using several rhythm-training exercises. The back of the module features nine trigger inputs, making it possible to add more pads like Roland’s mesh PD-80R for snare. A stereo Mix input lets you play along with external audio sources, while MIDI In and Out let you connect with sequencers and more.

Professional Feel at a Fraction of the Price

Thanks to Roland’s latest pads and triggers, the TD-3Kit delivers ultra-realistic feel and expressiveness at a great price. The new KD-8 Kick Trigger Pad, for example, uses a vertical design to give drummers a more natural feel with minimal tremble and the ability to use double bass pedals. The new CY-8 Cymbal Pads support both edge and bow sounds with “swinging” motion and choke capabilities, while the FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller delivers smooth hi-hat sounds from open to closed.
