SPD::ONE WAV PADK

Your Own Samples, Backing Tracks, and Click Tracks—In the Palm of Your Hand

The Roland SPD::ONE WAV PAD is a new type of digital percussion pad, one that allows any musician to perform with their own sounds and samples. Importing audio files is as simple as connecting the SPD::ONE WAV PAD to a PC or Mac and dragging your WAV files into the drive that appears. Whether you need full-length backing tracks or one-shot samples, your sounds can be loaded and played in seconds. Once you’re ready to go, the unit’s robust-yet-sensitive pad can be played with sticks, hands, or feet, and trigger threshold settings are easily adjusted with intuitive controls.

Powered by batteries or AC, the portable SPD::ONE WAV PAD can be used on the floor or a tabletop, or mounted to any rig or drum setup with the included adapter. Operation is simple, even for those musicians who are not technical; just by using four knobs on the control panel, you can change the sound, volume, balance, and more. Whether you’re a drummer, percussion player, guitarist, DJ, or vocalist, the SPD::ONE WAV PAD is a simple and flexible way to expand your sound palette and invigorate your performances.

SPD::ONE WAV PAD

A Digital Percussion Pad You Can Play with Sticks, Hands, or Feet

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.

Import Entire Songs, Backing Tracks, and Clicks

The SPD::ONE WAV PAD can import and play WAV audio files.* From backing tracks to individual samples like vocal phrases, drum sounds, and musical sequences, if you can record it, you can load it in the SPD::ONE WAV PAD and play it. Importing audio is very simple: just connect the unit to a PC or Mac via USB, and then drag and drop your files. Samples can then be triggered in different ways using a host of playback options, such as polyphonic, monophonic, or alternate. With the SPD::ONE WAV PAD, playing your own sounds at a gig has never been easier.

*Compatible WAV data format: 44.1 kHz, 16-bit, stereo or mono.

SPD::ONE WAV PAD

Play Click Tracks Simultaneously—and In Sync—with Backing Tracks

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.

Layer Audio Files and Customize Your Sounds

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.

SPD::ONE WAV PAD

Easily Fits Into Your Existing Instrument Setup

The SPD::ONE WAV PAD is compact enough to fit into your existing instrument setup without needing to move your other gear. With the included mounting adapter, you can easily clamp the pad to a hi-hat, cymbal, or tom stand,* or even a mic stand. Alternately, the SPD::ONE WAV PAD can be played without mounting it to anything at all—simply place it on the floor, a tabletop, or any solid surface.

*Fits percussion stand rod diameters from 8.0-12.7 mm.

Portable and Built for the Road

You can take the SPD::ONE WAV PAD wherever you want, thanks to its compact size and battery operation. It’s lightweight enough to be dropped into a bag or instrument case, and robust enough to travel thanks to its metal-body construction. You can even play and produce your own sounds on the move via headphones, and include them in your set list that night.

Easy Control Using Just Four Knobs

Operating the SPD::ONE WAV PAD 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.
