The Roland SPD s is a drum/ sampling pad that is really affordable. It allows you to bring some of your drumming into life in your music without having to go out and pay for a large drum set that will take up a lot of room in your home. This is the perfect tool for a drummer who wants to lay down some great drum patterns and cant afford a real drums set or just doesn’t have room to put it. It is also small enough that you can take it almost anywhere with you and because they are pads and not drums, there is no “real” sound. So you can put some headphones in and start playing and people around you cant hardly hear a thing.

Set up is really easy, it comes with the ability to play up to 8 different sounds simultaneously on 6 different pads. It comes pre loaded with over 150 different drum sampled sounds that you can use right away and they don’t need much eq’ing.

The sounds are good, there is even an sequencer right on the device so you don’t have to slave it to another outboard sequencer if you don’t want to. So these means that if you want you can use it as a stand alone device and don’t have to have anything else running it or sequencing what you are playing because it can do it all on its own. It has the ability to import .wav files from your computer (pc or mac).
Overall, this is perfect for someone like me (who doesn’t have room for a drum set in the apartment). I can lay down some really good drum grooves and record them, then I usually track it out into another sequencer so I can start adding some bass and other instruments to the drum patter that I made with the Roland SPD S. Not to mention that this machine doesn’t cost much either.
