The Octapad Legend Continues
For decades, Roland has been a leader in electronic percussion technology. The original Octapad was a revolutionary percussion instrument that was adopted by musicians worldwide and set the standard for future percussion pads. With the Octapad SPD-30, an exciting new chapter in Octapad history begins. Combining cutting-edge drum and percussion sounds with the latest triggering technology, a Phrase Loop function, USB MIDI, and much more, the Octapad SPD-30 is a rugged instrument that’s versatile for any musical application.

The Octapad SPD-30 includes more than 600 drum and percussion sounds from around the world suited to cover any musical style. Arranged in 50 kits, the sounds are dynamic and expressive, and range from traditional to contemporary to exotic. You can customize the sounds with the onboard controls for tuning, muffling, attack, pitch sweep, and more. You can also layer two sounds per pad to create an infinite number of sound combinations.

Based on Roland's world-leading effects technology, the SPD-30's multi-effects engine will take your performances to another level. There are 30 types of internal multi-effects onboard, plus EQ, limiter, and seven Ambience types.

Phrase Loop Function
The onboard Phrase Loop function is a powerful creative tool that lets you quickly record your playing in real time. You can overdub up to three layers per phrase, and store 50 phrases internally. Connect optional footswitches for seamless recording and hands-free operation. You can also save your phrase data to optional USB memory.

Advanced Triggering Technology
The Octapad SPD-30 benefits from Roland's most advanced V-Drum triggering technology. Each pad is a separate, isolated unit, providing the ultimate in sensitivity with complete crosstalk rejection. In addition, you can connect four dual-trigger inputs, plus a hi-hat controller (compatible with Roland FD-8, VH-11) to create a mini drum set with external pads (Roland KD-/PD-/PDX-/CY-series). The Octapad SPD-30 is also compatible with Roland RT-Series acoustic drum triggers for even more flexibility.

Love it! Bought it for my drumming comeback. Excellent for Pros and beginners looking for a silent set that can be expanded into a full kit. Currently use it with Roland's HH, snare, and pedals for the ultimate portable kit.



600 percussion sounds


The octa pad gives you 8 triggers that are programmable to play 1 of the 600 sounds. Or have fun exploring the 50 pre-programmed kits. Works perfect alone or as an add on to your kit. Also has 4 available inputs for separate drum triggers. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash Ontario.

Octo-awesome percussion pad!


This drum pad module is the key to a full range of auxiliary percussion at your fingertips. The eight fully-programmable pads are easy to assign, and have great touch-velocity sensitivity for the most delicate of playing. Pads feel great and have great natural rebound response. The module has a full range of very natural sounding percussion instruments, from standard shakers to rare African drum sounds. I would recommend this product for anyone who is looking for a high quality percussion pad with an excellent bank of sounds to complete their set-up! I am a sales associate at Sam Ash Hollywood

Super fun and easy


This is the most demoed and entertaining drum pad I have at Sam Ash. Made with V drum technology this device has been made the most popular item with a built in phase-looper. I am a sales associate at Sam Ash music in Cerritos, Ca

Great Update of the Classic Octopad


The new SPDS 30 is a great option for the gig'ing drummer to add a huge array of dynamic auxiliary percussion and sounds to his or her live set up. This pad allows you to leave the bags of cowbells, shakers, maracas, wood blocks, tambourines and all their associated mounts, holders, shelves and mic'ing gear at home, while adding such sounds as 808's, claps, and symphonic sounds such as kettle drums or marimbas, seamlessly to your live shows. The easy pair of 1/4 outputs makes running the audio into the house PA a snap, while still allowing volume control and sound tweaking to be done at the pad. This is the most obvious choice for a dyed in the wool acoustic purist to simplify her or her live load out and mix in some purely electronic and synthetic sounds to the mix.

A state of the art Percussion Pad


The Roland SPD 30 is a state of the art percussion pad that is chock full of features. The ability to edit every sound and put separate effects on the pads really made the pad flexible and gave everyone that uses it the opportunity to have their own sound. The looping ability also made it easy to construct custom loops and phrases to accompany anything. Quality product! I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music.

This is one of the most fun and easy to use drum pads I have ever had the pleasure of laying hands (and sticks) on! Right out of the box this pad sounds amazing. Fun and easy to use, this pad will make you sound huge! I am a Sam Ash Music Sales Associate.

One of the best


This is probably one of rolands most infamous units in recent years. Used all over the world by pros and rookies alike, the spd30 is packed with tons of sounds, over 500! All realistic and rich in tonality. The velocity is on point and the responce is great. I've used this for jamming, live sets and recording and it has never let me down. I recommend this to any serious drummer looking for another piece to add to their percussive arsenal. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Queens.

Great Addition!


this works well when added to you acoustic set up. if your looking for something to help diversify your sound this is it. it works well in the studio if your looking to increase the sound of your kit without adding a bunch of diffrent drums to your setup. I'm a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.




Very powerful percussion pad


Over 600 legendary percussive Roland sounds in a powerful, easy to use mobile percussion pad, what else do you want? Some of the most popular new features are the built-in phrase-looper and the ability to layer up to 2 sounds at a time. The SPD-30 also features 4 dual-trigger inputs, plus a hi-hat controller for adding pads to expand and get your feet playing as well. The SPD-30 is highly recommended.
