The Reinvention Of The Octapad
The new Version 2 system upgrade expands the Octapad SPD-30’s onboard kit and phrase libraries, and add powerful new features and functions. Roland’s original Octapad profoundly changed the landscape of electronic percussion. The size of a briefcase, the Octapad offered drummers and percussionists the equivalent of an entire electronic rig in one self-contained unit — a new level of convenience and expression. Today, decades later, an exciting new chapter in Octapad history begins. The Octapad SPD-30 blends the world’s most essential sounds with the latest triggering technology in a road-tough package that’s ready for the most demanding performers. There are 30 types of internal multi-effects onboard, plus EQ, limiter, and seven Ambience types. Based on Roland’s world-leading effects technology, the Octapad SPD-30’s multi-effects engine will take your performances to another level.
- Four dual-trigger inputs, plus hi-hat controller for adding pads to create a mini kit
- USB connectivity for MIDI and memory storage
- Large backlit LCD and pad indicator lights for easy operation in low-light conditions
- Rugged, road-worthy design
99 Onboard Kits
49 exciting new kits have been added to the Octapad SPD-30, bringing the total up to 99 for even more creative possibilities. Use the Octapad SPD-30 as a compact drum set, play dynamic orchestral percussion, or explore traditional world percussion and melodic instruments from India, the Middle East, Africa, China, and Latin America. You can back up your own original Octapad kit data and import it into Version 2. 19 new phrases have also been added to the onboard library, which adds exciting performance and recording possibilities.
Controllable Phrase Loop function with 50 preset phrases
The onboard Phrase Loop function lets you instantly create layered loops and phrases. You can record and store 50 phrases internally, with each containing up to three layers. You can also save your phrase data on your USB Memory. With Version 2, you can control the start of Phrase Loop using pad velocity, buttons presses, and/or an optional footswitch. Additionally, you can toggle freely between solo play (Kit mode) and phrase play (Phrase Loop mode).
Built-in Sound Editing
Unlike the original Octapad PAD-8, which was strictly a MIDI controller, the Octapad SPD-30 is a controller that’s packed with its own internal bank of sounds. You can customize the sounds with the onboard controls for tuning, muffling, attack, pitch sweep, and more. Version 2 also adds a new Output Gain function to increase the overall output of the Octapad SPD-30, providing a +6 dB boost when a stronger signal is needed. It’s like having a truckload of customizable drum and percussion instruments in one portable package.
Advanced Triggering Technology
The Octapad SPD-30 benefits from Roland’s most advanced V-Drum triggering technology. Each pad is a separate, isolated unit, providing the ultimate in sensitivity with complete crosstalk rejection. In addition, you can connect four dual-trigger inputs plus a hi-hat controller (compatible with Roland FD-8, VH-11) to create a mini drum set with external pads (Roland KD / PD / PDX / CY series), as well as to accept triggers from acoustic drums through Roland’s RT series.
