All new Roland TD-11 & TD-15 V-Series Drum Kits A Musikmesse 2012
Roland TD11K V-Drum V-Compact Series (See Picture)
This entry level V-Kit now comes with the V-Compact moniker and carries the new TD-11 Sound Module which has been enhanced with the aforementioned SuperNATURAL Sound Engine. It has new backing songs to play along with and a built in USB function for easy transfer of files. COACH function helps the user build up their drumming skills making this ideal for a learning environment. This particular model contains the PDX-8 Mesh-Head Snare which offers Roland’s dual trigger technology which gives the user a more even accurate sensing for picking up the differences from rim to head. The PD-8A Toms offer accurate triggering so you will never miss a beat no matter how hard or soft you hit. The CY-5 Cymbals offer a huge 10” playing zone with separate bow and edge triggering. The FD-8 Hi Hat controller gives the drummer a realistic feel hi hat with amazingly smooth transitions from open to closed. The KD-9 Kick Drum pad feels dynamic and great under foot giving the user ultimate control of their playing. You can even use a double bass pedal as it will accommodate this aspect. The compact feel to this kit just gets better and better as you do not need any bulky stands for snares or hi hats. It is exactly what Roland say, COMPACT.

Containing 100 kits (50 Preset, 50 User) and an expressive sound library which cover a huge number of genres, the TD-15 Sound Module gives something for everyone when it comes to playing, practice and more importantly price. The TD15K has all the same pads and drum parts as the TD-11KV so if you need a refresher please see earlier on in this article. The key to the upgrade on this kit applies to its TD-15 Sound Module and its amazing SuperNATURAL Sounds and Behaviour Modelling Technology. Beyond the physical modelling of instruments, Roland goes a step further by modelling the instrument’s distinctive behavior and how it responds to the performer, resulting in natural, expressive sounds that evolve organically in real-time. The TD-15 Sound Module can be connected to your computer via a single USB cable and this will transmit audio and MIDI data which makes it great for interacting with your favourite DAW and opening up the possibilities of triggering different sounds. The TD-15 is also compatible with the all new Air Recorder and V-Drums Friend Jam for the iPhone using the new WNA1100-RL Wireless USB adaptor which is also being released today (Sold Separately)
