Feel & Features
The RMP-3 is outfitted with a great-feeling, tunable mesh pad for realistic and quiet performance. A small pickup is mounted inside the pad, enabling you to monitor your drumming through headphones, along with the metronome and coaching audio. You can play along to external audio as well, thanks to the Mix In jack. Position the RMP-3 on your lap, a tabletop, or mount it on a stand, such as Roland’s PDS-2.

Rhythm Coach
As a free-standing practice pad, the RMP-3 is a pleasure to play, but it’s the built-in Rhythm Coach that really makes this unit shine. When activated, the Rhythm Coach challenges drummers in a fun and friendly way with functions such as Time Check, Auto Up/Down, and the new "Stroke Balance" mode to help develop consistent stick technique.

Audio/Visual
The RMP-3’s large LCD provides easy-to-read instructional information, complete with a smooth-flow onscreen tempo meter that bounces from side to side. Large buttons and a clearly labeled front panel make using the RMP-3 a snap. It has a built-in speaker for the metronome sounds, or you can monitor your drumming, metronome, and internal audio through headphones if privacy is desired.
