Percussion Sound Module

More Than Just a New Look

More Than Just a New Look

The first thing you’ll notice about the TD-6V Percussion Sound Module is the new black look and cool blue LCD screen. Like the original, this 64-voice module serves up 1,024 of Roland’s best drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments—but with newly created drum kits and patterns in the latest music styles. Dual-trigger tom inputs allow for rim shots on toms and expanded musical expression, while large, luminous buttons make the TD-6V very easy to use.

Incredible V-Drums Sounds

The TD-6V module serves up 1,024 of Roland’s best drum and percussion sounds and 262 backing instruments – complete with 99 drum kits and 170 patterns in the latest musical styles. Users can first listen to the patterns with the drum part as an example, and then mute it to play along. The TD-6V also lets players record their drumming, so they can play it back for evaluation. Drummers can create their own custom drum kits and store them to user memory, or add EQ and Ambience effects to beef up the sound. There’s even a 6-part sequencer that’s great for jamming and practice with backing tracks.

Cool Look and Friendly Interface

The TD-6V sports a black case and blue LCD screen that’s easy to read under any lighting condition. Luminous rubber buttons make selecting different kits and editing sounds and effects quick and intuitive. Even those new to electronic percussion will find this module easy to understand. The TD-6V can be expanded with up to 11 pads and cymbals. Plenty of room to grow.

Realistic Sound and Expressive Performance Control

This friendly module is packed with top-grade drum and percussion sounds, but great sound quality is just the beginning. The TD-6V enables realistic and expressive performance control, such as cross-sticking on snare, rimshots on the toms, cymbal chokes and cymbal-edge shots, and pitch control with hi-hat control pedal.
