Roland HPD10 "HandSonic 10" Hand Percussion Pad
An all-new collection of sounds has been created for the HPD-10; approx. 400 high-quality instruments are onboard. All of the percussive essentials have been included ó congas, bongos, tabla, djembe, cajon, etc. ó as well as melodic percussion, drum kit, special effects, and more. No matter the genre, from ethnic to electronic, the HPD-10 has you covered.
Style Guide Metronome
The HPD-10 has a new type of metronome that provides an inspiring selection of rhythm patterns based on a variety of music styles. It helps you not only for practice, but also for sessions as play-along patterns.
Whether youíre laying down the most delicate finger rolls or the sharpest slaps, the HPD-10ís playing surface can handle anything you give it. The comfortable round surface is divided into ten individual pads with pressure and positional sensitivity. The popular D Beam is also included for dramatic triggering and pitch control. Strike a virtual gong with your head, and control the pitch of a talking drum with your hand waving up/down ó you get the picture.
Flaunting your chops on the stage or in the studio is the fun part, but behind the scenes itís practice that gets you the gigs in the first place. For this purpose, Roland has equipped the HPD-10 with a Rhythm Coach. This virtual trainer provides exercises to improve your timing and knowledge of rhythms.
The HPD-10 is all about hand percussion, but if you want to get your feet into the action, you can do so by adding a kick trigger (optional) to make an additional sound or by adding a foot/pedal switch (optional) to do the same thing or control the Hi-Hat sound. The input is dual-trigger compatible, so you can double your triggering power from a single input via PCS-31L Y-cable (optional).
