Roland’s flagship sampling pad—built for any gig.
The Roland SPD-SX PRO is a professional-grade sampling pad that offers unparalleled versatility and control for drummers and percussionists alike. With its sleek design and intuitive interface, this instrument provides a powerful tool for live performance, studio recording, and electronic music production.
At the heart of the SPD-SX PRO is its advanced sampling engine, which allows you to capture and manipulate audio with incredible precision and detail. With nine velocity-sensitive pads and six external trigger inputs, you can easily create custom drum kits, trigger loops and samples, and layer sounds to create complex, dynamic arrangements.
But the SPD-SX PRO is more than just a sampling pad – it's also a powerful effects processor, with three multi-effects units that can be applied to individual pads or to the entire mix. From classic reverb and delay to cutting-edge pitch shifting and distortion, the SPD-SX PRO gives you a vast array of sonic possibilities to explore.
And with its USB connectivity and integration with popular DAWs like Ableton Live, the SPD-SX PRO is the perfect tool for modern music production. You can easily import and export audio files, control MIDI devices, and trigger virtual instruments – all from the same powerful interface.
Whether you're a live performer, a studio musician, or an electronic music producer, the Roland SPD-SX PRO offers unparalleled control and versatility. With its advanced sampling engine, powerful effects processing, and seamless integration with your workflow, it's the ultimate tool for creating, performing, and recording your music.
