The Roland TD-50DPA is a digital upgrade pack designed to provide enhanced playing and expression capability and expanded tonal options for drummers and percussionists using V-Drums in the studio, at practice, or on stage. It includes the TD-50 sound module, a PD-140DS digital snare, and one CY-18DR digital ride. With over 400 instruments and the ability to play WAV samples via SD card, you'll never run out of sounds.

High-resolution triggering and natural, expressive response characteristics ensure a realistic playing feel similar to that of acoustic drums. An internal recording option delivers an easy way to record your ideas and performances. Eight 1/4" TRS outputs and two XLR master outputs allow for multi-channel routing to a mixing console or audio interface. You can even send ten channels of audio from the TD-50 directly to a computer via USB.

Roland TD-50 V-Drums Sound Module

The TD-50 V-Drums Sound Module from Roland is an expressive drum sound module for pro performance and studio sessions. It can be used when paired with drum pads (sold separately) for top-flight live performance, intense practice sessions, and eclectic studio work.

Featuring an advanced processor and Prismatic Sound Modeling, the TD-50 delivers over 400-plus dynamic and expressive instrument sounds. In addition to the traditional analog trigger inputs, the module is built with digital trigger inputs for high-speed communication with multi-element sensor systems like the PD-140DS snare and the CY-18DR ride pads.

Furthermore, deep editing features and flexible connectivity put you in charge with this sound module. It allows you to play WAV samples via an SD card, or have USB 10-channel audio out for multitrack recording through a single USB cable. With its attractive sound quality, quick responsiveness, and connectivity and expression, the TD-50 is on its way to being a professional standard in electronic drum sound modules.

Dynamic Prismatic Sound Modeling

The TD-50 is a powerful new drum sound module whose original Prismatic Sound Modeling technology means that every element of your playing style is caught and conveyed in precise detail. It gives you lifelike, resonant, and expressive sounds via an electronic kit

Play with Your Own WAV Files and Record Easily to a DAW

Using the module's SD card slot, it's easy to trigger your own WAV files using any of the TD-50KV's drum pads (sold separately), and you can loop or layer them alongside the internal sounds while controlling volume and tone via the TD-50's front panel. Simply connect the TD-50 module to a computer via USB for multitrack recording direct to your favorite DAW. Up to 10 channels can be recorded separately, then easily edited for tone color, and more

Practice Features to Develop Your Technique

Whether you lock down your timing with the Quiet Count function or play along to backing tracks via the SD card slot, it's easy to get inspired, even when you're practicing alone

Customize Your Sound for Live Sessions and Studio Work

This module also supports deep sound customization, including basic adjustment of heads and shells, layering of internal and user samples, and adjustment of overhead mics and ambience. A compressor and three-band EQ can be controlled for each pad individually, while three independent multi-effect sections let you treat drums with 30 effect types such as delay, flanger, saturator, and many others. The two-band multi-compressor and four-band equalizer on the output let you change the overall dynamics and tonal balance, depending on whether you're in the studio or on the stage

Balanced Connections to a PA

The TD-50 is a V-Drums module that features an XLR stereo master out and eight TRS direct outs, allowing for a balanced connection to a PA system

Record Drum Performances

The TD-50 also includes a unique, easy-to-use audio-recording function—simply hit the record button and start playing to capture your performance. If you're playing to a click or backing track, there's an option to record just the drums, or to record them with the click or track included. Once captured, your recordings can be easily exported for upload and editing in your DAW

Roland PD-140DS V-Pad Digital Snare

The PD-140DS V-Pad Digital Snare from Roland is a 14" mesh head designed as a snare pad for the V-Drums TD-50 electronic drum set. It features a high-resolution multi-sensor system that responds accurately and naturally to your drumming techniques and nuances with acoustic-like snare drum playability.

With the highly developed multi-sensor system, the resolution for detecting the striking position on the head as well as the playing dynamics are vastly improved. A cross-stick can be executed using traditional hand technique without the need to adjust any module functions.

  • High-resolution triggering designed to connect digitally to the TD-50 drum sound module, providing realistic snare sound and accurate positional detection
  • Natural cross-stick playability using a traditional cross-stick hand technique
  • Comfortable playing feel and natural response with a 3-layer mesh head
  • Standard 14” diameter snare drum size for professional playability and acoustic-like performance

Roland CY-18DR V-Cymbal Digital Ride

The CY-18DR V-Cymbal Digital Ride from Roland is a multi-element sensor designed to produce a natural cymbal sound for the TD-50 drum sound module. The sensor enables the cymbal sounds to change naturally in different positions on the cymbal, from edge to bow to bell, which allows ride-cymbal play to be faithfully reproduced.

Whether you're playing legato cymbal swells, soft strokes on the bell, or strong crash accents on the edge, the V-cymbal captures each playing technique accurately. In addition, you can choke the cymbal with your hand and can softly mute the bow of the cymbal with a simple touch of a finger.

High-resolution sound triggering designed for the Flagship Roland TD-50 drum sound module
Recreates the subtle and smooth change of sound nuances from the bow to the bell area, as well as strong crash strokes on the edge of the cymbal
The wide range of the touch-sensor allows for cymbal-muting with a simple fingertip touch
