    The Roland HPD-20 HandSonic Digital Hand Percussion Controller puts hundreds and hundreds of sounds right at your fingertips. It's designed for percussionists and drummers, but that shouldn't stop DJs, dance music performers, composers, or producers from using it on the job!

    Inside the HPD-2 you'll find 850 ready-to-play sounds (200 pre-configured kits) enhanced with the SuperNATURAL sound engine and lots of multi-effects. If you want something a little more personalized, feel free to import up to 500 custom sounds (in WAV format) from USB flash memory.

    You can also mess around with every sound, fiddling with the EQ and layering with other sounds until you get exactly the thing you were hearing in your head. Add finishing touches like ambience at the touch of a button.

    Each visual 'section' of the silicone rubber playing surface is a separate trigger, giving you 13 different sound possibilities at any moment. Dynamic pad assignments allow you to mimic acoustic drums with scary accuracy - you can tell one pad to give you a conga open slap, a closed slap, or a muted tone depending on if you touch, press, or strike the trigger!

    Mid-performance manipulation is possible with the Roll button, Realtime Modify knob, and the D-BEAM, all of which allow you to modify sounds and effects immediately with a touch or by waving your hand in the air.

    Capture a performance or a sweet idea instantly with the Quick Recorder function. Save it to a USB drive, or hook up the HPD-20 to any computer to mess around with your beats inside your music production software.

    This percussion controller works just fine by itself, but if you want to add more gear you can extend its capabilities with the TRIG IN jack - connect other Roland pads, kick pads, hi hat controllers or more!
