HandSonic HPD-10: Hand Percussion Pad

The E-Percussion Revolution Expands

Features

From the company that made electronic hand percussion world-famous, Roland announces the second member of its HandSonic® family: the HandSonic 10 (HPD-10). More affordable and streamlined than its big brother, it offers the same great pad response that made the original HandSonic so popular, but with a specialized set of features and a fresh batch of sounds, rhythms, and effects.

  • All-new sounds and patterns (approx. 400)
  • 10 individual pads with pressure sensing
  • Large icon-driven LCD
  • D Beam controller for sound/pitch/effects control
  • New metronome function with backing rhythm patterns
  • 20 multi-effects
  • Rhythm Coach function

New Sounds & Patterns
An all-new collection of sounds has been created for the HandSonic 10; approximately 400 high-quality instruments are onboard. All of the percussive essentials have been included — congas, bongos, tabla, djembe, cajon, etc. — as well as melodic percussion, drum kit, special effects, and more.

Sensitive Surface
Whether you’re laying down the most delicate finger rolls or the sharpest slaps, the HandSonic 10’s playing surface can handle anything you give it. The comfortable round surface is divided into ten individual pads with pressure- and positional-sensitivity. The popular D Beam is also included for dramatic triggering. Strike a virtual gong with your head, throw your fist into a crash cymbal, wiggle your fingers over a perfect chime gliss — you get the picture.

Rhythm Coach
Flaunting your chops on the stage or in the studio is the fun part, but behind the scenes it’s practice that gets you the gigs in the first place. For this purpose, Roland has equipped the HandSonic 10 with a Rhythm Coach. This virtual trainer provides exercises to improve your timing, consistency, and endurance.

I/O Options
While the HandSonic 10 is primarily a hand percussion instrument, users can add a Roland kick pad (optional) via the external trigger input, or add a Roland V-Pad. The input is dual-trigger compatible for double the triggering power via an optional PCS-31L Y-cable.
