Roland TM-1 Overview

  • 1Description

The TM-1 Trigger Module from Roland is a portable  lightweight trigger module that makes it easy to add more sounds to your acoustic drum kit. It can be used to add onboard kick, snare, tom, cymbal, and percussion samples to your own samples and loops during live stage, theater, or studio performances. In addition, the TM-1 allows you to connect any compatible Roland trigger pad (sold separately) and directly play the sounds you need or mount an RT-series trigger to one of your acoustic drums and play with your preferred sample layered on top in perfect sync, with no lag at all.

Furthermore, getting your own custom sounds into the TM-1 is simple, thanks to the free editor app for Mac/Windows and iOS/Android devices. Connect the TM-1 to your device, open the app, import samples from your library, and tweak the settings as needed. The TM-1 runs on either batteries or an AC adapter (sold separately) and can be easily controlled with the two built-in foot switches that trigger the samples. Every working drummer can benefit from a hybrid setup these days, and the TM-1 is a good place to start.

The Simple Solution to Bring Hybrid Power to Your Acoustic Kit
Just mount one or more Roland trigger devices (sold separately) within your setup, connect them to the TM-1, and access any sound you need. With dedicated controls for sensitivity, pitch, and more, there's no technical knowledge required for operation. Simply turn the knobs until the sound is right to you and start playing.
Editor App for Sample Import and Quick-Sound Creation
With the TM-1 Editor, you're able to access all the module's internal sounds, import your own original samples, assign sounds to each trigger pad, and quickly customize them however you like. Samples up to six-seconds long can be imported from your computer, tablet, smartphone, or even cloud storage. Also, you don't have to take your laptop to the gig to change up sounds at the last second. Just use your smartphone.
Cover Any Gig with 15 Ready-to-Play Kits
Out of the box, the TM-1 has 15 ready-to-go kits with two instruments in each. The free editor app unlocks access to a library of over 150 additional sounds, including kick, snare, and other drums, and even synth loops. And with the ability to add your own sounds via the editor as well, the sonic possibilities are virtually endless. Whatever you want to achieve, changing your kit's sound during the set has never been easier.
Ultra-Portable and Built for the Road
The TM-1's compact size lets you take it wherever you want, and the stompbox-style design fits easily alongside your other floor-mounted gear. Support for battery operation eliminates the hassle of finding AC power when you need to set up in a hurry or perform outdoors. The TM-1 is lightweight enough to throw into a bag or instrument case, and robust enough to travel thanks to its metal-body construction and rugged footswitches.
Trigger-to-MIDI Conversion for Your Computer
Whether you're producing at home, working in the studio, or performing live, you sometimes need to send a MIDI signal when you hit a pad. The TM-1 performs this trigger-to-MIDI conversion simply by connecting it to a computer via USB, allowing you to trigger sounds in drum samplers and plug-in instruments, record MIDI tracks in a DAW, or control clips and other functions in performance software like Ableton Live.
