Incredible Prismatic Sound Modeling
Derived from the flagship TD-50 module, the TD-27 is filled with drums that live and breathe like real acoustic instruments. We start by sampling the finest drums, percussion, and cymbals—both vintage and modern—in world-class recording studios. Roland’s unique Prismatic Sound Modeling is then applied to the samples, bringing them alive with proprietary behavior modeling refined over two decades. Every time you play a drum or cymbal in the module, you’re not simply triggering a canned sound—you’re playing a full-bodied instrument that responds like its acoustic counterpart in every way, putting unlimited sonic range at your command.
Digital Trigger Technology
Roland’s cutting-edge digital pad technology brings even deeper realism to the V-Drums experience. The TD-27 module features three digital trigger inputs, which work with advanced Roland digital pads like the PD-140DS snare and CY-18DR ride to deliver the most natural expression of your drumming. Multiple sensors and lightning-fast processing work together for truly amazing response, enabling you to play genuine techniques in the most natural way, with every nuance precisely detected and perfectly translated. And if you’re not ready for digital pads just yet, the TD-27 also has analog trigger inputs for standard snare and ride pads.
Create (and Craft) Your Signature Drum Kit
With an acoustic kit, you make the sound your own by swapping head types, adjusting the tuning, applying damping, tweaking the snare wire tension, changing out the kick beater, and more. This is all possible with the TD-27 module, with hands-on controls and deep editing options that allow you to craft customized kits for any situation. You can also load your own WAV samples via SD media, using them on their own or layering them with internal sounds.
PureAcoustic Ambience Technology
New PureAcoustic Ambience Technology optimizes each kit, creating an incredibly natural and immersive sound field when playing. But you can go deeper too, and adjust the mic position on each drum kit, and dial in the overall sound with the newly developed overhead mic simulator. Finally, advanced onboard multi-effects and mixing capabilities give you the power of a full-scale studio console, with transient, parametric EQs, compressors, reverbs, delays, and more at your command.
Connectivity for Stage and Studio
The TD-27 is a powerful command center for any electronic drumming setup, with ample connectivity options for both stage and studio use. There are stereo outputs for the overall drum sound, plus two direct outputs for sending kick, snare, and other sounds to an audio console for independent mixing. The built-in USB audio interface makes computer music production simple, with up to 28 discrete audio channels available over a single cable. MIDI is also supported via USB and dedicated I/O, allowing you to sync with other MIDI devices and trigger sounds in computer software.
Versatile Trigger Support
In addition to its three digital trigger inputs, the TD-27 module features a multi-pin analog trigger jack for fast and easy connection with any standard V-Drums pad arrangement via an included cable. There’s also a dedicated analog trigger input for a second crash cymbal pad, plus three auxiliary trigger inputs for customizing your setup by adding Roland kick, tom and cymbal pads, or trigger pads like the BT-1.
Bluetooth Connectivity and Built-In Coaching Tools
With the practice features in the TD-27 module, you’ll always look forward to the next playing session. Built-in Bluetooth lets you wirelessly stream audio from a phone or laptop to the module, perfect for immersive jams with headphones. Play along with favorite music tracks or mix the sound from a YouTube lesson video with the kit. Onboard coach functions build skills and track your progress, while the advanced metronome helps improve your inner clock. And at any time, you can record your playing and listen back to hear what you need to work on.
