The reinvention of the OCTAPAD: The new Version 2 system upgrade expands the SPD-30’s onboard kit and phrase libraries, and add powerful new features and functions. Roland’s original OCTAPAD profoundly changed the landscape of electronic percussion. The size of a briefcase, the OCTAPAD offered drummers and percussionists the equivalent of an entire electronic rig in one self-contained unit—a new level of convenience and expression. Today, decades later, an exciting new chapter in OCTAPAD history begins. The SPD-30 blends the world’s most essential sounds with the latest triggering technology in a road-tough package that’s ready for the most demanding performers.
