Bigger pads, stronger hardware, and enhanced V-Edit capabilities anchor the new TD-12KX V-Stage kit. The drum rack and mounting hardware have been redesigned as well, providing an extra solid feel with enhanced pad mounting and placement. The KD-120 kick pad is larger and more stable, as is the PD-105 floor-tom pad”, offering a more natural look and feel around the kit. Enhanced V-Edit features have also been added to the TD-12KX package for a wider variety of custom sounds. For drummers who want the best V-Drums sound and performance without the larger footprint and price of the flagship TD-20KX, the TD-12KX is the ideal instrument.
Roland’s original V-Synth set a new standard in expressive synthesis and sound design. It won awards and acclaim around the world, as it forever changed the way sounds were created and performed. But just when you thought V-Synth technology had reached its peak, Roland raised the bar even higher with the new flagship V-Synth GT! This unique instrument injects the V-Synth’s famous Elastic Audio Synthesis engine with revolutionary Articulative Phrase Synthesis technology. Its expression and realism is unprecedented, as is its ability to make never-before-heard sounds.
