Roland held an online global launch event Totally Drums on May 8, and released the new TD-17 series, TD-25KVX and TD-50KVX electronic drums.
The first to be listed on the Japanese market is the TD-17K-L. This is a set of electronic drums that integrates home practice, recording, and stage performances, especially powerful and professional practice functions. If you have made up your mind to become a drummer, TD-17K-L will be your best choice.
Excellent sound source
The sound source of TD-17-L is derived from the sound source of Roland's flagship product TD-50. It uses Prismatic Sound Modeling (prismatic sound analog) technology, which means that every detail of your performance will be accurately captured.
Once you start playing, you can feel a wider range of velocity control, as well as intense timbre changes, depending on the location and method of hitting. Continue to play and begin to use various playing techniques, including the half-open position of the hi-hat and the different sounds of the side and the edge.
You will find that even the sound of Cha times vary depending on the time or hit batter. No matter how you play, you will feel very comfortable on the TD-17-L:
Real playing feel
Although the TD-17K-L is very compact, its performance is at the professional performance level.
In addition to the PDX-8, PD-8A and other Roland's highly acclaimed pads, the position and angle of each pad can be fully adjusted, but the distance between the pad and the drummer can always be maintained and used with traditional drums The distance is very similar, so that you will not be unfamiliar with the performance of acoustic drums because of long-term use of electric drums:
Professional and efficient skill training artifact
1. Enhance your sense of rhythm
Time Check (time value detection) mode can improve the accuracy when you play with the beat track. The number of precise hits will be displayed as a percentage value, and the screen will indicate whether the time you hit the pads is accurate, faster than the beat or slower than the beat. If you can practice regularly, the help of timing detection to improve the sense of rhythm is immeasurable.
2. Fine-tuning your self-time value Quiet Count (beat silent) mode helps to improve the feeling of time value and speed inside the body. In the first few bars, the metronome sounds at the specified volume, but in the next few bars, the metronome will not sound. In the silent section, you need to keep in sync with the beat according to your inner time value, to ensure that the beat sound is consistent with it when it is restored. The more you use the "metronome" in your mind, the stronger you will become.
3. An effective warm-up program becomes simpler
Warm Up mode can make your daily practice more enjoyable, which means you will be easier to achieve your practice goals. Choose to warm up for five minutes, ten minutes or fifteen minutes, and have different difficulties, and then choose the speed.
Through a series of exercises, you will be ready for a real drumming performance. The exercises include changes in rhythm types, changes in speed, and an assessment of performance accuracy.
