MESSE12: Roland Announces New V-Tour Series V-Drums
Two new expandable mid-level kits with SuperNATURAL sounds 21/03/12
Roland has announced the TD-15KV and TD-15K V-Drums V-Tour Series, two new mid-level kits in its lineup of V-Drums electronic percussion products. Roland tells us that, featuring a new sound module powered by their revolutionary SuperNATURAL sounds, improved V-Pads, and other enhancements, the TD-15KV and TD-15K kits offer superb drum performance for practice, stage, and studio. Here's all the details in Roland's own words...
The brain behind the TD-15KV and TD-15K kits is the TD-15 Drum Sound Module, which delivers brand-new, ultra-expressive percussion tones with SuperNATURAL sounds produced by Behavior Modeling technology. Originally introduced in the flagship V-Drums V-Pro Series, this exciting level of performance is now available in V-Tour players.
The TD-15 has 500 instruments and 100 user-customizable drum kits, plus a new powerful Ambience feature. 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.
Easy to use, the TD-15 offers a large LCD and the intuitive V-Drums V-Edit interface for quick navigation and sound customization. Coach and Quick REC functions help build drumming skills, while two different USB ports allow users to play audio files from convenient flash media and connect directly to computers for MIDI/Audio over USB.
In addition to the TD-15 module, components in the TD-15KV set include two new PDX-100 mesh-head V-Pads for the snare and floor tom, two PD-85 mesh-head
V-Pads for the rack toms, and a KD-9 Kick Trigger Pad. The VH-11 V-Hi-Hat delivers a natural hi-hat feel, while CY-12C and CY-13R/C V-Cymbals are provided for the crash and ride. Rounding out the kit is the new MDS-9V Drum Stand.
The slightly more compact and affordable TD-15K set offers two PDX-8 mesh-head V-Pads for the snare and floor tom, two PDX-6 mesh-head V-Pads for the rack toms, and a KD-9 Kick Trigger Pad. Other components include a CY-5 Dual-Trigger Cymbal Pad and FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller, CY-12C and CY-13R/C V-Cymbals for crash and ride, and the MDS-9V Drum Stand. Pricing and Availability:
The TD-15KV and TD-15K V-Drums V-Tour Series will be available in late spring.
