Roland TD electronic drum kits: what's new in the latest releases?
SuperNATURAL Sounds and Behaviour modellingRoland’s new “behaviour modelling technology” has been added to the new range of TD kits which has been created to even further improve the already fantastic response found on older TD kits. This also creates a more realistic snare sound and feel particularly on transitions between rimshots and headshots. Even the response of positional hits such as buzz rolls and ghost strokes have been improved to sound even more authentic than TD kits of old.
Roland’s new SuperNATURAL technology is now found on the mid range kits (TD-11 and TD-15). This is technology usually found on Roland’s flagship models which creates a much more natural decay and organic tonal changes. This kind of technology will be very noticeable for experienced drummers particularly on cymbal sounds where the decay can be key.
