Los Angeles, CA, March 21, 2012 — Roland is proud to introduce the TD-15 and TD-11 Drum Sound Modules, two new sound engines for V-Drums® electronic percussion products featuring all new SuperNATURAL® sounds with Behavior Modeling Technology. These modules offer V-Drums players an unmatched level of playability and dynamic expression.
The flagship TD-30 Drum Sound Module, released in January 2012, was the first V-Drums sound engine equipped with SuperNATURAL sounds produced by Behavior Modeling Technology. Originally developed for Roland’s synthesizers and pianos, these leading-edge technologies deliver a quantum leap in realism in both sound and expression for emulating drums, percussion, and other traditional instruments.
With the TD-15 and TD-11, SuperNATURAL sounds are now available in mid- and entry-level V-Drums models. In addition to the ultra-expressive sounds, these modules include an enhanced Ambience feature, plus Coach and Quick REC functions for building drumming skills and capturing drumming performances.
Each new module has a large LCD and the intuitive V-Drums interface for easy navigation and sound customization. Two different USB ports allow users to play audio files from convenient flash media and connect directly to computers for MIDI/Audio over USB.
The TD-15, available standalone and as part of the new TD-15KV and TD-15K V-Tour® Series V-Drums sets, features 500 instruments and 100 user-customizable drum kits. Ten multi-effects are provided for processing drum sounds, and the front panel offers dedicated buttons for tuning, muffling, and effects. There are 11 trigger inputs, plus a click output that can be assigned to the headphone or master outputs.
The TD-11, available standalone and as part of the new TD-11KV and TD-11K V-Compact® Series V-Drums sets, features 190 instruments, 50 user-customizable drum kits, and 10 trigger inputs.
The TD-15 and TD-11 Drum Sound Modules will be available in late spring. For more information, visit www.RolandConnect.com.
