HD-1: V-drums Lite
Roland’s V-Drums are the most popular electronic drums in the
world, but not everyone has the room or budget for a full V-Drums kit.
Introducing the new Roland HD-1. It's forged from the same technology as its
predecessors, but it's much simpler to use. It’s also incredibly quiet, thanks
to the newly designed kick beater, cushioned tom pads, and snare head. The HD-1
is also conveniently compact and stylish — perfect for every home, school,
studio, etc. — and it's priced for the masses. Most of the HD-1’s components are
mounted on one stand for easy setup and transport, and for a clean look. Just
take it out of the box and play.
Tweak: Just the thing for
small studios, dorm rooms or anywhere that space is in short supply.

Thor sounds like no synthesizer you've ever heard before -
and every single one of them. Where other synths use one specific form of
synthesis and one single filter, the Thor polysonic synthesizer features six
different oscillator types and four unique filters. What does this give you?
Simply the most powerful synth ever created; an unstoppable monster of a sound
generator that utilizes synthesizer technology from the last 40 years.
Six open filter and oscillator slots let you load up three different synth
filters and three separate oscillators simultaneously, allowing you to dial in
synth sounds that are completely...new. An all-powerful modulation matrix gives
you complete control over your signal flow, letting you modulate anything within
Thor with anything within Thor. Sound deep enough for you? It gets deeper.
Tweak: Thor is a new
software synth to be incorporated in a Reason at some point, probably in Reason
4, which is now in beta. Read more
