Description

Roland’s Zero-compromise Compact Kit

The Roland TD-50K2 Set is proof positive that a compact kit doesn’t have to cut corners on tone or feel. That’s because the most essential pieces of this kit are borrowed directly from Roland’s flagship TD-50KV2 Set. That’s right: from its full-sized digital snare, ride, and hi-hat pads to its trailblazing TD-50X sound module, this kit is out to prove that getting top performance out of your eDrums doesn’t mean eating up all your floor space. Playing out? From the stadium to the sanctuary, the TD-50K2 Set’s slim footprint and discrete analog outputs give you the edge for any live drumming environment. And when it comes to cutting tracks in the studio, the TD-50K2 Set comes out on top. With up to 32 channels of audio over USB, professional multitrack drum recording is as simple as running a single cable into your laptop. Beyond its advanced digital pads, the TD-50K2 Set sips real estate from the corner of a room or stage; its trio of mesh-headed tom pads, 14-inch spurred bass drum, and “stereo” 14- and 16-inch crashes give you the expression you need while still packing nicely into the trunk of a car. And for those occasions when you want to drag out the twenty-two, the TD-50K2 Set’s included rugged-yet-streamlined MDS-Grand 2 stand gives you ample clearance for even large-format kick drums.

  • TD-50X drum sound module

Digital Snare, Ride, and Hi-hat Pads

PD-140DS: 8-sensor digital snare plays like the real thing

The heart of any modern drum kit, acoustic or electronic, is the snare drum. So it’s only fitting that a kit as advanced as the TD-50K2 Set includes a snare that’s equally sophisticated: the 14-inch Roland PD-140DS. Eight sensors across the head and rim accurately translate your performance to your V-Drums module. This means fat backbeats, cutting rimshots, delicate ghost notes and brush sweeps, and natural cross-sticks that connect every time. And thanks to its full 14-inch diameter, the Roland PD-140DS transitions seamlessly between your acoustic kit and back. Particular about your tuning? Fortunately, the PD-140DS’s 8-lug design and 3-ply mesh head make it easy to dial in whatever level of tightness or sponginess you desire.

CY-18DR: Roland’s most convincing V-Cymbal yet

The Roland CY-18DR invites players to bring their acoustic touch back to the eKit. This 18-inch V-Cymbal sways and plays just like a real cymbal. Multiple sensors across the playing surface eliminate the feeling of zones, as distinct edge, bow, and bell tones melt into one another seamlessly. And the Roland CY-18DR’s multi-touch technology not only lets you choke crash attacks with your hand, but also soften cymbal attacks with a finger’s touch. If you’ve had trouble getting the full emotion of a performance to translate through the use of traditional eCymbals, then you’re in for a sweet surprise with the TD-50K2 Set’s included CY-18DR V-Cymbal digital ride cymbal.

VH-14D: the digital hi-hat you’ve been waiting for

The VH-14D V-Hi-hat represents the latest in Roland’s illustrious line of V-Drums digital drum and cymbal triggers. With independent bow/edge sensors and advanced play support, this digital hi-hat trigger gives you the tools you need to create dimension and atmosphere in your tracks just like a “real” set of hi-hats. Mount the VH-14D to your favorite hi-hat stand using the included accessories, and you’re fully supported for pumping time, splashing accents, and creating dizzying variations of closed eighths, half-open flourishes, and bombastic full-bore metal washes. Whatever your style, the VH-14D’s speed and expression are second to none. Even super-quick EDM hat rolls don’t get lost when you’re grooving on the VH-14D’s soft, quiet 14-inch rubber playing surface. What really impresses us is the VH-14D’s intuitive approach to sound creation. Footing, sticking, and even choking on these hats feels much like the real thing. What’s more, the VH-14D’s sleek, low-profile design looks natural in both hybrid and fully electronic environments. So whether you’re incorporating the TD-50K2 Set into your stage or studio setup, its VH-14D V-Hi-hat provides the look, feel, and performance you’ve been waiting for.

Powered by the TD-50X Sound Module

The next generation of Roland’s flagship V-Drums module

If 2016’s TD-50 drum module represented a sea change in V-Drums modeling technology, then the TD-50K2 Set’s TD-50X module takes V-Drums tone and expression to another level entirely. Inside, you’ll find 70 premium preset drum kits and 900 instrument sounds that run the gamut from rock, pop, and metal to EDM, world, and experimental styles. Support for all three of Roland’s latest digital pads — snare, ride, and hi-hat — makes playing on the TD-50X the most lifelike V-Drums experience to date. Thanks to an intuitive interface with hands-on mix faders, per-function knobs and switches, and endless opportunities to drill down and fine-tune your sound with muffling, tuning, and more, the Roland TD-50X has all the makings of a sound module that can last a career. It’s powered by the latest wave of Roland’s Prismatic Sound Modeling technology. This non-sample-based sound engine allows you to tailor the size, composition, space, and tone of each drum and cymbal to a staggering degree. Other features eDrummers love about the TD-50X include discreet ins and outs for pads and sends, 500 user samples for bringing your studio sounds to the stage, 24 minutes of onboard mono record time (12 minutes stereo) for capturing ideas in practice and on the road, and up to 32-channel USB audio recording for creating professional drum tracks via a single cable.

Dream up any kit via Prismatic Sound Modeling

Roland V-Drums are the undisputed kings of virtual drum design. And with the TD-50X’s Prismatic Sound Modeling engine, you can expect nuance and realism like never before. Every onboard kit in the TD-50X is crafted to sound great without any tweaking. But for those times when you need a custom kit for a particular performance, Prismatic Sound Modeling has you covered. You have control over each drum shell’s thickness and overtones, plus each cymbal’s size and thickness. You can even control virtual mic placement to dial in the right amount of natural ambience. Once you’ve found your sound, you can sweeten the kick, snare, or toms with 30 types of built-in effects, including smooth multiband compression and saturation.

Create lifelike soundstages using PureAcoustic Ambience technology

A set of drums is only as inspiring as the room it’s played in. The same goes for electronics. Fortunately, the TD-50X’s PureAcoustic Ambience technology creates a natural and immersive soundstage that really makes you feel like you’re there. PureAcoustic lets you dive deep into sound tweaking, too — adjust virtual microphone positions like a real recording studio, then balance each part of the kit with outboard-style effects processors.

Import custom libraries at will

Whether you’re importing one-shots of your studio acoustic kit or loading in your favorite sample library, Roland makes it easy to incorporate these sounds into your V-Drums TD-50X. High-capacity SDHC cards let you create an arsenal of custom libraries and call them up on your V-Drums at will.

Scrap or store kit changes with Snapshot

What we love about the Roland V-Drums TD-50X sound module is that you can edit kits to your heart’s content without committing. Use the Snapshot feature to quickly A/B the before and after results. And if you like what you’ve done, save it; if not, scrap it and start over.

Practice and perform like never before

From its sophisticated brushed black finish to its expressive kit sounds, the TD-50X is built for the stage. But you may be surprised to learn what a difference the TD-50X can make for your practice hours. Jam along to the TD-50X’s built-in metronome to practice septuplets and strengthen your internal click. Or loop a groove and solo over it to build your lick vocabulary. What’s especially cool is you can record yourself playing to a click or backing track right onto an SDHC card. This is a handy way to track ideas and share them with bandmates.

Take control of the way you I/O

The versatility of the TD-50X is fully seen in its flexible in and outs. Send drum kits premixed to your FOH engineer using balanced stereo XLR outs or directly into your home stereo speaker system with unbalanced stereo 1/4-inch outs. And if you’ve got mixer channels to spare, send your kick, snare, toms, and cymbals separately via balanced 1/4-inch direct outs for individual treatment and level control. MIDI in/out even lets you track your performance and replace sounds at a later time.

Record up to 32 channels of multitrack audio over USB

Drummers love our eDrums for home recording. And with the Roland V-Drums TD-50X module, you can do it all over USB, in glorious 96kHz, without reaching for an audio interface. This means you can enjoy studiophile drum recording, even in your apartment, at any time of day.

Big Sound, Compact Size

KD-140: 14-inch mesh-headed kick drum

Not only does the Roland KD-140 V-Kick give you a natural bass drum feel and response, but it’s also built to take a licking. The KD-140 features a tunable multi-ply mesh head, so you can dial in however much give or rebound your foot prefers. A solid metal frame and adjustable mounted spurs add security to your playing. This kick looks great, too — its brushed-metal shell finish makes it a strong addition to your TD-50K2 Set.

Space-conscious toms with multi-ply mesh heads

Roland’s dual-zone PDX-100s have been a long-standing favorite among V-Drums players, especially for toms. A trio of these slim, space-conscious pads — two in the rack position, one on the floor — outfitted with tunable multi-ply mesh heads gives you a rich sonic range to explore and the freedom to position your TD-50K2 Sets’s toms anywhere within reach.

MDS-Grand 2 rack stand

Despite its compact folding design, the TD-50K2 Set’s included MD-Grand 2 stand is no slouch when it comes to setup. This versatile rack-style stand securely holds your pads and cymbals while still giving you the freedom to tuck into a corner when necessary. It also gives you room to grow into — its center horizontal bar has clearance to support kick drums up to 22 inches in diameter.
