    I don't see how the TD-50 is much different from the TD-30. Yes, the TD-50 features a different sample library, but fundamentally the module uses the same architecture Roland has been slowly and incrementally developing since the TD-10. Some features have been added while other features have been...

  • VDrumAce,

    When you say the TD-20X is much cheaper than the TD-30, it depends on what condition you're willing to settle for. I've searched eBay a number of times over the last few months. With the TD-50 out, you can get the TD-30 for around $1,500. TD-20X modules are around $1,000 to...

    Peter Warren,

    I just watched your "TD50 edit" video on YouTube. Was that recorded with the latest TD-50 firmware? As in the Isaac Dumont videos, in your demo, I hear obvious machine gunning on the snare, toms, and hats. You didn't play the bass drum so I don't know if machine...

    Re the Isaac Dumont TD-50 demo. I'm not supposed to say this, but... whoa, that kit sounds like a horrible mess of machine gunning and odd decay envelopes. I've heard the TD-50 sound much better. However, this is the first demo I've heard where the kit is subjected to fast, extremely dense playing....

    Kabonfaiba, GW1000, electrodrummer, jtrego, PietjePuk100, Peter Warren, Ericdrumz, and Everyone;

    Thanks for all the feedback. Much appreciated. I made the list in the OP because it helped make decisions about my TD-30. It also helped with upgrade decisions in general, considering pros and...

    I see where you are going with this, but pitch bend is only one aspect of drum tuning and of why one changes the tuning ratio between top and bottom heads. I rarely tune acoustic drums to obtain intentional pitch bend and yet I use different top and bottom tuning for various sounds impossible to achieve...

    Thank you for pointing this out. I just verified this and you are correct. On the TD-30, all outputs are unbalanced, including the individual direct outs. On the TD-50, all outputs (XLR and TRS) are balanced, except for the TRS Master Outputs. I'll update the OP accordingly....

    Your description is how I understand the TD-50 sequencer operates, with one exception. You described an audio recording mode, but to the best of my knowledge there is no such mode in the TD-50. In the TD-50, regardless of whether you record in "Drums Only" or "With Song" mode,...

    Chris K,

    I added your corrections to the list. Thanks!

    About the sequencer. Are you sure it only converts to MIDI on file output? Meaning, it does not record MIDI? I can't really see how you'd get detailed MIDI from sampled audio, but perhaps I am misunderstanding what...

    For those interested, I posted a detailed analysis of differences between the TD-50 and TD-30. You can find it here:

    That Better Music video is very misleading when they talk about importing sample libraries into the TD-50. Nowhere do they mention the 128 MB RAM limitation and the fact you can only import two layers per zone. So you cannot, for example, take a massively multi-layered sample library, such as SSD4,...

    TD-50 versus TD-30 Analysis

    I just finished a detailed analysis of the TD-50, comparing it to the TD-30. For those who want to know the exact differences, here is a list of what I discovered:

    replied to Freedrum
    Well, fair enough. Freedrum certainly looks like a step in the right direction and it's far from a direct copy of Aerodrums. It brings a number of things to the table that are severely lacking in Aerodrums and the entire sensing / tracking approach is completely different. Does Freedrum offer acceptable...
