Roland HPD15 Handsonic Percussion Controller

Roland HPD15 Handsonic Percussion Controller


The Roland HPD-15 HandSonic Hand Percussion Pad bring Roland’s acclaimed V-drum technology to the world of hand percussion. This incredible instrument does it all–from organic exotic percussion sounds from around the world to effected techno noises and drums. The HPD-15 provides about 500 internal sounds, playable from any of its 15 pads, two ribbon controls, infrared D-Beam or external inputs. AND get ready for tons of expressive performance features. Electronic systems have always treated instruments like congas, bongos, timbales, etc. as static sounds to be played with sticks. The HPD-15 emulates the unique performance characteristics of these instruments via a 10-inch rubber playing surface, which is divided into 15 pads. Its built-in pressure sensor allows muting and pitch control to be performed as they would be on an acoustic instrument. The main pad also senses position, which can produce subtle changes in timbre based on the area of the pad struck. The HPD-15 HandSonic is an electronic hand percussion multi-pad with triggering capabilities derived from breakthrough V-drums technology. Divided into 15 parts, the HPD-15 allows hand percussionists to play up to 300 realistic acoustic and electronic percussion sounds — 15 simultaneously — with all the sensitivity that the Roland V-drums are famous for. You won’t believe how expressive this instrument is! The HPD-15 provides trigger pedal inputs for Kick & Hi-Hat (KD-7 and FD-7). Set up some patches with a conventional drum set up; use the same pedals for expressive control on other patches. The HandSonic has killer dedicated Reverb and Multi-Effects which can be stored to any of 80 User Patches. For even more expression control, the HDP-15 provides a D-Beam controller, dual ribbon controllers, and three modifier knobs for realtime control of tone and pitch. A metronome function and preset patterns are included for training purposes. The HDP-15 also features a built-in sequencer for recording User patterns, MIDI In & Out, a stereo output, phones jack and a footswitch jack. Either as a striking chameleon capable of emulating a roomful of traditional instruments or as a brand new way of creating and performing modern sounds, the HandSonic is a brand new category of instrument for the forward thinking percussionist.
