The ultimate percussion sampling instrument.

The Roland SPD-SX sampling pad is a trailblazing instrument designed to inspire creativity in live performance and music production. Packed with the latest sampling technology and multi-effects engines, the SPD-SX gives you the tools to capture and manipulate audio, then play it back on hyper-responsive pads. Whether you play electronic drums, keyboard or DJ, the SPD-SX is a versatile companion that expands your sonic possibilities.

Cutting-edge Sampling Technology With Intuitive Interface

The SPD-SX features Roland's most advanced triggering and sampling engine yet, with 16 ultra-responsive pads, a large backlit LCD and a streamlined interface that's fast and intuitive. Load your own WAV samples via SD card or connect audio sources directly to the inputs. Tweak samples with hands-on control knobs and capture loops and phrases on the fly.

Powerful Multi-Effects Engines for Customized Sound

Shape your sounds with three simultaneous multi-effects engines, including a mastering processor. Dial in compression, EQ, delay and reverb with dedicated knobs and save your settings to any of the 16 pads. The SPD-SX has hundreds of world-class effects presets, but it's just as easy to craft your own.

Ergonomic and Responsive Pads for Expressive Playability

The Roland SPD-SX sampling pad features 16 velocity-sensitive pads with bold LED lighting that lets you see settings at a glance. The pads have a comfortable, ergonomic layout and respond accurately to the subtlest strikes. Two external trigger inputs allow you to expand your setup with additional pads.

Sample Creation Tools for Capturing and Manipulating Audio

Record WAV samples directly to the SPD-SX or import your own audio files via SD card. Use the onboard editing features like trim, normalize, time stretch, pitch shift and reverse to shape your sounds. The SPD-SX makes sample creation intuitive, whether you're preparing loops and one-shots ahead of time or capturing audio on the fly.

Compatibility With Electronic Drum Kits, Keyboards and DJ Setups

The Roland SPD-SX sampling pad is a versatile instrument that works with virtually any electronic or acoustic setup. Use it to augment an electronic drum kit with additional sounds or add samples and loops to a DJ rig. Keyboard players can assign samples to specific keys and the SPD-SX is a great percussion controller for studio productions. With MIDI in/out and two 1⁄4" trigger inputs, the integration possibilities are endless.
