SNAMM05: Roland Introduce New Rhythm Trainer
Beat It!

Roland’s RMP-3 Rhythm Trainer made headlines when it was announced in early 2005. Today Roland builds on its winning line with the new RMP-5.
Sharing a few key features in common with the popular RMP-3, the RMP-5 has a convenient one-piece molded body with integrated pad and brain, along with a tunable mesh drumhead. The difference, however, is that unlike the RMP-3, the RMP-5 has built-in sampled sounds. What you get are 40-plus onboard PCM sounds, including snare drums, cymbals, and percussion instruments.
The RMP-5 can be used as a free-standing practice pad and electronic drum, is a pleasure to play, but it also has an onboard Rhythm Coach for improving your abilities as a drummer. When activated, the Rhythm Coach challenges drummers in a fun and friendly way with functions such as Time Check, Auto Up/Down, and Stroke Balance to help develop consistent stick technique. As an added bonus, the Time Check and Stroke Balance exercises can be used simultaneously for a dual-power workout. The Rhythm Coach can even grade your performance, so you can chart your progress.
The RMP-5 provides a dual trigger input that can be used to connect Roland’s KD-8 kick and CY-8 cymbal pad (optional). All together, these three components form the nucleus of a small electronic drum kit for training not only your hands, but your feet as well. The RMP-5 provides the sounds for each pad, so you can play complete grooves either solo, along with the Rhythm Coach, or with external audio (such as CD players) connected to the RMP-5’s External Audio input.
