Roland Releases SPD-SX Special Edition


Buying Choices

Roland has announced the availability of the SPD-SX Special Edition, an enhanced version of the popular SPD-SX Sampling Pad. Here's the details in their own words...

The SPD-SX Special Edition offers all the functionality of the standard SPD-SX with greatly expanded onboard storage capacity. Users can store up to 16 GB of samples on board, eliminating the need to carry external memory. The SPD-SX Special Edition also features a distinctive Sparkling Red finish, and includes an Ableton Live Lite software license to maximize music production and sample creation workflow with the instrument.

Roland's SPD-SX Sampling Pad is the professional touring standard for triggering custom samples, loops, and even complete backing tracks. It also supports real-time sample capture via its exclusive Multi-Pad Sampling function. With its expanded memory, the SPD-SX Special Edition supports up to 50 hours of mono sample storage. This allows busy players to load all the studio-quality WAV samples they need into the instrument, offering greater convenience and versatility when using the sampling pad in different live performance and recording situations.

Integrating the SPD-SX Special Edition with the included Ableton Live Lite music software forms a highly flexible production and sample creation setup. Sounds played in Ableton Live Lite can be sampled in the SPD-SX Special Edition, and sounds played on the pads can be recorded into the software. The SPD-SX Special Edition can also be used as a MIDI pad controller for recording expressive MIDI tracks in Ableton Live Lite or any popular DAW. Connecting the sampling pad to a computer requires only a USB cable.

The SPD-SX Special Edition also comes with Roland's SPD-SX Wave Manager software. Via a friendly interface, users can import audio files directly from the computer to the instrument, assign samples to pads, and easily organize a library with thousands of samples.

To complement its enhanced features, the SPD-SX Special Edition comes in a Sparkling Red finish that offers a distinctive look to set it apart from other gear on stage.
