Bringing high quality percussion to small performance spaces, the SPD-30 Octapad is an iconic instrument to say the least. This update of the classic Octapad brings an immense amount of percussive and rhythmic sounds in a handy-sized package of pads. The playing surface is big enough to be comfortable to easily play on and there are 99 kits (670 sounds!) to have fun, jam and compose with.
The 8 pads themselves are very responsive, velocity sensitive units that react well to being used with standard drumsticks. The SPD-30 has USB MIDI connectivity to save sounds, back up loops and more. Build your own hybrid kits form your favourite sounds and attach a pedal to control kick drum sounds. It's a fun, versatile and professional piece of equipment. This Octapad is white.
THE REINVENTION OF THE LEGENDARY OCTAPAD
Percussion Pad with two unique modes: play and perform or use the phrase loop mode
PHRASE LOOP: Record your performance in real time and layer up to three loops to create melodic, percussive patterns. Add effects to the loop, quantize your performance, and start your loops at the hit of a pad
PERCUSSION PAD: Perform with a choice of 99 kits and 670 sounds including drums, percussion, eletronic sounds and melodic notes. Edit instruments including tuning, muffling and add even ambience
8 built-in, velocity sensitive pads and four dual-trigger inputs plus hi-hat controller input for expansion with external pads and triggers
USB connectivity to back up your loops and kits to USB flash drive and USB-MIDI connectivity
ACOUSTIC DRUMS + ROLAND ELECTRONICS. YOUR SOUND, NO LIMITS. Hybrid drums: take the raw power of acoustic drums, add the potential of electronics and start playing a drum kit that gives you the best of both worlds.
By connecting Roland Acoustic Drum Triggers or trigger pads to Roland Sound Modules such as the TM-2 and SPD-SX, a world of extra acoustic and electronic sounds are available. When you combine with them with your acoustic drum and cymbal sound, things get really exciting.
1. ENHANCE YOUR SOUND. You can enhance your sound by triggering an electronic sound and mixing it with your acoustic sounds for greater dynamic range, increased clarity and performance. Even the fastest double-bass drum rolls sound clear and pronounced.
2. LAYER YOUR SOUNDS. You can add extra electronic sounds, such as tambourine, hand claps or even your own sounds, which play along with your acoustic drum sound.
3. EXPAND YOUR SOUND. Expand the sounds available within your kit. Play instruments that you can't take to the gig (such as gongs) or that you don't have in your original drum kit (such as second snares or sub-drops).
Today, decades later, an exciting new chapter in Octapad history begins. The 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.

Sound Bank 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. Fifty kits are built into the SPD-30 — essential sounds that span a musical universe of styles. You can customize the sounds with the onboard controls for tuning, muffling, attack, pitch sweep, and more. It’s like having a truckload of customizable drum and percussion instruments in one portable package.
Multi-Effects Based on Roland’s world-leading effects technology, the SPD-30’s multi-effects engine will take your performances to another level. There are 30 types of internal multi-effects onboard, plus EQ, limiter, and seven Ambience types.
Phrase Loop Function 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.
Advanced Triggering Technology The 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.
