Years of experience have paid off

New functions, increased storage space, more audio outputs, additional trigger inputs, and hi-hat and FX control via expression pedal are just some of the features that set the Roland SPD-SX PRO sampling pad apart from its predecessor models, the SPD-S and SPD-SX. Easier handling, navigation, and playability in dark environments is also ensured courtesy of a large 4.3" LC colour display with backlit controls and customisable multi-colour trigger lights. Other fundamental changes to the Roland SPD-SX PRO include improved pad sensitivity without crosstalk and a convenient facility for editing kits via the SPD-SX PRO App.

Improved pads and enhanced connectivity

The Roland SPD-SX PRO boasts a total of nine trigger pads. The three shoulder pads on the top row feature an enhanced sensor structure for more precise touch sensitivity, and users will now also benefit from improved crosstalk protection to prevent any accidental triggering of the adjacent pads. Distinct pad segregation is ensured by the multi-coloured LEDs, which users can set to the colour of their choice and which additionally make it possible to group specific areas. The Roland SPD-SX PRO also comes with six audio outputs: A balanced stereo master output and four freely assignable mono outputs that allow sounds to be mixed and played individually as required.

The full works

With its generous 32GB memory, the Roland SPD-SX PRO has sufficient capacity to hold up to 44 hours of 48kHz/16-bit stereo audio. Thanks to automatic conversion, the Roland SPD-SX PRO will automatically convert source formats – whether WAV, AIFF, or MP3 files with varying bit rates – to its native 48kHz/16-bit audio format on loading. The sampling pad also comes loaded with a vast library composed of 1550 sounds, 43 erasable preset kits, and 157 user kits. In a live environment, users will benefit from the fact that kits for the next song can be loaded while the sounds of the previously selected kit are still playing, making cut-off songs a thing of the past, and ensuring that professional drummers and artists alike are optimally prepared for every show.

About Roland

The Roland company was founded in 1972 in Osaka, Japan, and has been designing and building electronic musical instruments ever since. During its successful history, Roland has launched many ground-breaking instruments, from legendary drum machines such as the TR-808 and the TR-909 to synthesizer classics like Jupiter-8, SH-101 and the iconic TB-303. Besides synthesizers, Roland’s workstations and electric pianos are also very popular. Equally well-known is Roland’s subsidiary Boss, under whose brand name it designs and sells principally guitar pedals and effects units. Under the Roland Professional A/V label, the company additionally develops and distributes professional equipment for virtually every branch of audio and video production - from home studios through to commercial applications.

Creativity knows no bounds

Sounds layers can be easily created by assigning two sounds to a pad. A distinction is made here between MAIN layers and SUB layers, and separate volume, attack, release, and pitch controls allow the user to tailor their sounds to their own personal preferences while individual sample tags help to speed up sound selection. The Roland SPD-SX Pro also boasts four effects modules, providing everything from modulation, distortion, and filter effects to delays and reverbs for more in-depth sound processing and colouration. The effects are assignable to any pad and trigger input, and users will also benefit from the holistic processing option available on the master.

FINALLY a new SPD-SX
Tobes2208 28.10.2022
After waiting for so long for Roland to update their SPD-SX line, they have finally brought out the SPD-SX Pro. The Pro has all the features I've been crying out for the last few years. Direct (balanced) outputs, more trigger inputs (although, I would've still liked a couple more), a much-improved wave manager to make editing so much easier. I've played two shows with the Pro and can confirm it works great. Still many more things to play around with to fine-tune it to my setup. But at least I can now sell my TM-6 Pro and TM-2!

Roland SPD SX Pro is the whole new level!
Max Hrebin 08.03.2023
I used Roland Spd SX previously for 9 years. I have used it as a part of a set for 4 years, and for 5 years as a primary instrument for my setup apart from the triggers and additional stuff. It always was a feeling that there was something more for Roland to provide as that tool was becoming mentally old.
Well now SPD SX Pro is at the whole next level. And that is the true case of why "Pro" is in the naming. Top 10 features super important to me:
1. More triggers and direct outputs - it supports a much more comprehensive range of triggers now and also hi-hat can be connected.
2. Pad layering and sequences - now you can adjust the pad to have different sounds on different dynamics or trigger a whole bunch of different sounds with the following pad activation.
3. Each pad sound can be equalized and effects can be applied directly to the device.
4. Separate controller to work with the effects of the outputs in the real-time performance.
5. Pad sensitivity and cross-talk adjustments - thank you, finally!
6. Controlled led lights which can be settled to any color by RGB code- big thank you
7. New update and much more user-friendly soft to sync devices with your computer.
8. Bank of sound got much richer - almost no need now to add any new sound as long as you can mix and create a new sound on the fly. Plus new percussion packs sound really neat.

Yes it is more expensive compared to SPD SX, but that $300-$400 definitely worth this investment if you need a professional tool

A giant's step from previous generation!
DabaoDrums 17.05.2023
I have had the previous generation Roland SPD-SX for several years now, accompanying me on numerous performances and tours. Although I was generally satisfied, there were also many drawbacks, such as insufficient expandable memory capacity and limited sampling rate options of only 44.1 kHz. Several years ago, a red version was released, but it didn't offer significant improvements and was essentially the same level of product.

However, the new SPD-SX Pro has truly revolutionized my experience! The much larger full-color screen makes it incredibly easy to see the current pad's sound and attributes (loop, one-shot, etc.), and the added control over the hi-hat opens up even more possibilities for expanding triggers. You can even layer two sounds and control their balance within this compact device. I can only say it's mind-blowing. This machine is in a completely different league from the previous SPD-SX. If you're still using the previous generation, don't hesitate—get this one, and you'll absolutely fall in love with it!
