  • Roland TD-9 module?

    1. Does the TD-9 support mesh heads? I will be using Hart Dynamic mesh heads on my acoustic kit.
    2. Assuming I get a module that supports positional sensing (like a TD-8), Will positional sensing work on my mesh heads?

    Real quick:

    1. YES

    2. Yes again, depending on your use of center-cone triggers on your acoustic kit.


    I would tend to favor a used TD-9 over a TD-8 - positional sensing or not - because the TD-9 is an almost ten years younger module.
    If you are really keen on having pos-sens, why not look into a used TD-12 module?

      thankx HTH. Yeah price mostly otherwise a TD12 would be great. Looking at the TD-9 inputs, looks like I can use the snare and aux input for rim shot - trigger I'm using is ddrum piezo/piezo?

        Sorry, I didn't quite understand your last question.... The TD-9 has one 'Aux' input, which is a (splittable) stereo piezo/piezo input.
        The 'Snare' input is a stereo piezo/piezo input too, so you don't have to use a secondary trigger. You'll get a dual-zone snare (head/rim) out-of.the-box!

        If you are using DDrum triggers: Is your snare-trigger dual-zone capable (DDrum 'Pro' trigger) ?


        Hope This Helps.

          All your Piezo/Piezo drums will work dual zone on both Aux and Snare (and also tom1 tom2 and tom3 - they are all Piezo/Piezo and split-able)

              Cool!
              Even better than the Ddrum Pro. If you like, write us a review on how it performs and such.



              If I needed to use aux input, they make Snare Y-Cable which is a XLR-female connector out to 2 x 1/4 TS connectors.
              Again (just to clarify), no need for splitting OR using the aux input, if all you want is a dual--zone snare with rimshot!



              Hope this helps

                How do I determine if the TD-9 is version 2 when buying from a seller on ebay?

                  If it has 99 kit slots (some may say user kit) it is ver 2. Less and it is ver 1

                    In addition to what Intruder wrote, there's also a more complex way to show the TD-9's system version:



                    To make it visible on the display , you'll have to...

                    1. Press [SETUP]

                    2. Hold [SHIFT] and press [EXIT]

                    3. Release [SHIFT] and [EXIT], and press [CURSOR Left] and then [CURSOR Down]

                      Good info guys. Looking at rolands site for the td9 in the support section. They dont provide the 2.0 firmware upgrade?

                        the version 2 upgrade was not free, it was on a usb, and roland quickly ran out of them....roland usa offers a service of installing v2 if you send the module back to them. contact roland customer service to see if this offer is still valid...on the other hand, v2 wasnt that much of a upgrade...the ability to have 99 user kits instead of 50, ability to play mp3 through the usb instead of having to use the mix in, and 30 new sounds for the snare and kick, and according to Chris of Vexpressions, only a couple of them were worth getting excited about...no new sounds to the hihat, which was needed...
