Immersive native drum playing experience.
With its attractive appearance, familiar layout, and high-quality acoustic drum performance, the VAD506 allows drummers to seamlessly transition to electronic drums.
The VAD506 is equipped with a 14-inch stainless steel snare drum, 10-inch and 12-inch tom drums, 14-inch floor tom drums, and 20-inch full-size wooden cavity kick drums.
Provides an authentic acoustic drum playing experience. In addition, it is equipped with 12-inch V-Hi-hats with a thin and light appearance and a textured shell, 14-inch and 16-inch broken-tone cymbals, and 18-inch cymbals that provide excellent performance and natural appearance on stage.
14-inch digital snare drum and 18-inch digital cymbal
Roland's digital pad technology makes V-Drums more real. The digital snare drum and tinkling cymbal are connected to the TD-27 sound source via a USB cable.
Cooperating with the sound source can bring a more natural performance, so that your playing skills can be refined to every detail.
Multi-sensor and high-speed internal processing provide fast response, allowing you to show your playing skills more naturally. The ghost sounds, rim shots, and cross rim shots of the snare drum can be accurately detected and transmitted, while the tinkling cymbals provide a wide sound range and can be silenced by touching the cymbal surface or the cymbal cap.
The natural percussion of acoustic drums
Roland’s highly acclaimed multi-layer adjustable elastic mesh drum head brings an authentic percussion feel, allowing you to adjust the rebound of the sticks according to your playing style. When you hit the kick drum with the hammer, you can really feel the air flow, pressure change and resistance in the drum cavity, just like an acoustic drum.
In-depth adjustment through Prismatic Sound Modeling (prism multi-dimensional sound simulation)
The TD-27 sound generator has built-in vigorous acoustic drum sounds inherited from the flagship sound generator TD-50. The classic or modern drum, percussion and cymbal sounds in the TD-27 are all recorded in a professional studio.
After the recording is completed, Roland Prismatic Sound Modeling technology is used to further sculpt, so that the behavior simulation technology accumulated for more than 20 years penetrates into every detail. When you hit a drum or cymbal, you hear not only the recorded sound, but the sound from a complete acoustic drum.
Create your iconic drum kit sound. When you use acoustic drums, you can customize the sound by changing the head type, tuning, adding damping, adjusting the tightness of the snare drum loop, or changing the kick drum. These TD-27 sound sources can do it, allowing you to customize the sound at any time. Just tap to select the pad to be edited, and then you can get the tone you want through the controls on the panel and intuitive editing tools. Your settings will be automatically saved, so you don't need to be distracted while playing. You can even import your own tone samples and overlay them on the built-in tone to get more creative tones.
The assembly method of the double-strand chrome-plated drum stand acoustic drum and cymbal is not only to create a classic appearance, but also to affect the percussion during performance. The tom drum is installed to the stand in the same way as the acoustic drum, so it can be very comfortable when playing. The newly developed thin and light V-cymbal is mounted on a special pivot, which can get a natural acoustic drum-like shaking when playing. Each bracket is a double-strand type, which can obtain rock-solid stability, and it is also convenient for you to change to your favorite layout.
PureAcoustic Ambience technology The newly developed PureAcoustic Ambience technology optimizes each drum kit to bring a natural and immersive sound field to the performance. You can go further and adjust the microphone position of each drum kit or adjust the overall tone through the newly developed suspension microphone simulator. The built-in multiple effects and mixing functions allow you to adjust transient, parametric EQ, compressor, reverb, delay, etc. to your liking just like manipulating a small mixing console.
Flexible connectivity for stage performance and recording
VAD506 has flexible connection performance, providing extraordinary sound for stage performance and recording. The TD-27 sound source has a stereo output that can output the overall sound, and a direct output that can output kick drums, snare drums and other tones to the mixer for separate mixing.
In the recording studio, the built-in USB audio interface function can make computer music production more convenient, and 28 audio tracks can be obtained with only one cable. In addition, you can also use USB or a dedicated MIDI input/output interface to synchronize with other MIDI devices, or trigger sounds in computer software.
Easily expand drum kits With VAD506, you can easily expand drum kits. The 3 additional trigger inputs of the TD-27 allow you to expand the tom or cymbal and increase the tone reserve. You can also add a hammer to get a stronger impact. You can continuously explore the ideal drum kit configuration through these trigger inputs.
Bluetooth and coach function The built-in Bluetooth function allows you to wirelessly play the audio in your mobile phone or computer, which is very suitable for jamming with headphones. You can play along with your favorite music or instructional videos on video websites. The built-in coaching function can improve your playing skills and check the progress of the practice, while the metronome can help you establish the correct sense of time. In addition, you can also record your own performance at any time, focusing on the parts that need to be improved.
