Product Description for the Roland Octapad SPD-30 USB Electronic Drum Pad SPD 30

For decades, Roland has been a leader in electronic percussion technology. The original OCTAPAD was a revolutionary percussion instrument that was adopted by musicians worldwide and set the standard for future percussion pads. With the OCTAPAD SPD-30, an exciting new chapter in Octapad history begins. Combining cutting-edge drum and percussion sounds with the latest triggering technology, a Phrase Loop function, USB MIDI, and much more, the OCTAPAD SPD-30 is a rugged instrument that’s versatile for any musical application.

World Class Sounds

The OCTAPAD SPD-30 includes more than 600 drum and percussion sounds from around the world suited to cover any musical style. Arranged in 50 kits, the sounds are dynamic and expressive, and range from traditional to contemporary to exotic. You can customize the sounds with the onboard controls for tuning, muffling, attack, pitch sweep, and more. You can also layer two sounds per pad to create an infinite number of sound combinations.


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 is a powerful creative tool that lets you quickly record your playing in real time. You can overdub up to three layers per phrase, and store 50 phrases internally. Connect optional footswitches for seamless recording and hands-free operation. You can also save your phrase data to optional USB memory.

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). The OCTAPAD SPD-30 is also compatible with Roland RT-Series acoustic drum triggers for even more flexibility.

wonderful design, flexible, opens door to creativity NEEDS a great drummer to sound great.
Review by aFOLLOWERflawed
not a toy or a short cut to skill. A superb drummer will find this is a superb instrumental adjunct. Not as good as the real thing - but who can afford to buy or house or maintain that many instruments. The quality of the sounds will depend upon the quality of the speakers you use. Someone with skilled sticking, great rhythm, and the ability to make a drum set shine will be spectacular on this!. The ability to layer in sounds allows for one person to sound like a whole percussion section. Will require lots of other purchases but that allows you to personalize your own international "kit"
The payoff of planning and playing skill is a big WOW of quality music! (Posted on 7/17/13)
