The Roland TD-17 Sound Module offers plenty of digital advantages to improve your drumming skills. It features a sound engine inherited from the flagship TD-50, for pro-quality expressive drum sounds that can faithfully reproduce the playability of acoustic drums. An array of built-in coaching functions will track your technique, measure your progress and increase your motivation. You can play along with your favorite tunes or watch online drum lessons while listening to the audio wirelessly – pairing your smartphone with the TD-17 via Bluetooth®, which makes your daily practicing fun. With a host of interactive drumming features, the TD-17 module can help you to become a better drummer, faster.
Great Sounds Lead to Great Performances
The Roland TD-17’s sound engine delivers a superior drumming experience thanks to Prismatic Sound Modeling technology, inherited from the flagship TD-50 sound module. Begin playing and you’ll notice a wider dynamic range and dramatic tonal changes, depending on where and how hard you strike the pad. From rim shots, rolls, flams, and ghost notes on the snare to dramatic crash hits, sustained cymbal swells, and half-open position on the hi-hats along with different sounds for the bow and edge, every nuance is detailed, accurate, and ultra-smooth.
Play along to Video Lessons &Ndash; Streamed Wirelessly from Your Smartphone
Place your smartphone on the module’s front panel, connect wirelessly via Bluetooth and hear the drum lesson audio (along with your playing) coming loud and clear through headphones or monitors. Watching a video lesson and then playing along has never been easier. If you’re in a band, getting everyone together can be tough. But rather than go to rehearsals, how about bringing rehearsals to you? Even with no band, you can still work on your drum parts every day, by playing along to your song demos streamed from your smartphone. And once you really are in the same room, you’ll be more than ready.
Find the Perfect Kit for the Music You Play
The Roland TD-17 module includes 50 premium quality drumkits for a range of professional musical scenarios. The warm, wooden vibes of ‘Acoustic’. The small-but-tight ‘Compact’ which captures the sound of smaller stages. The wide-open expanse of ‘Arena Stage’. The clarity of “Studio” which is perfect for recording. The richness of “Fat Rock” or the intensity of “Speed Metal”…whatever music gets you going, the TD-17 will help you get there.
Create Your Very Own Signature Drum Kit
Today’s pro drummers craft their signature drum sounds by layering many sound elements; a snare sound is made by layering different snare sounds, each with their respective attack elements, ambience and so on. The Roland TD-17 also lets you create your signature drum kit, by using onboard tuning and muffling controls, PAD EQ, 30-type of MULTI FX and more.
Import Samples and Sound Just Like the Record
For some performances, you simply have to use a specific sound. The Roland TD-17 module can import wav files (44.1 kHz, 16 or 24-bit) of up to 295 seconds (mono) or 148 seconds (stereo) from an SD card, so you can trigger original single-shot drum samples, or introduce entire audio phrases, sequences or vocals. Imported samples can even be mixed and layered with internal TD-17 sounds, to create a powerful and full drum sound that matches the real thing.
