Percussion Sound Module (Version 2)


The Next-Generation V-Drums Module

The TD-9 is the anchor of Roland’s new mid-line V-Drums kits. With hundreds of new sounds, real-audio songs and patterns onboard, plus new Scope and Quick Rec/Quick Play practice functions, full V-Hi-Hat (VH-11) compatibility, and three-way ride triggering available, the TD-9 raises the bar significantly in its price range.

Fast, Friendly, Fun

No more squinting at a small screen — the TD-9 is outfitted with a luxurious, large backlit dis- play with accompanying oversized buttons and controls. Its friendly, icon-based user interface makes editing sounds and customizing kits fast and fun.

Interactive Innovation

Play along with real-audio backing songs to build your musical experience base. Use the USB port to play along with audio files of your choice (WAV, MP3), back up your data, or save a “quick record” performance. The “Quick Record” and “Quick Play” features allow you to immediately record and play back solo drum parts, or drum parts performed with the backing songs. Special connecting cable allows for fast, clean and easy connection to the pads.
