The SPD-SX Special Edition from Roland is an enhanced version of the popular SPD-SX Sampling Pad.

The SPD-SX Special Edition offers all the functionality of the standard SPD-SX with greatly expanded onboard storage capacity. Users can store up to 16 GB of samples on board, eliminating the need to carry external memory. The SPD-SX Special Edition also features a distinctive sparkling red finish, and includes an Ableton Live Lite software license to maximize music production and sample creation workflow with the instrument.

Roland’s SPD-SX Sampling Pad is the professional touring standard for triggering custom samples, loops, and even complete backing tracks. It also supports real-time sample capture via its exclusive Multi-Pad Sampling function. With its expanded memory, the SPD-SX Special Edition supports up to 50 hours of mono sample storage.

Integrating the SPD-SX Special Edition with the included Ableton Live Lite music software forms a highly flexible production and sample creation setup. Sounds played in Ableton Live Lite can be sampled in the SPD-SX Special Edition, and sounds played on the pads can be recorded into the software. The SPD-SX Special Edition can also be used as a MIDI pad controller for recording expressive MIDI tracks in Ableton Live Lite or any popular DAW. Connecting the sampling pad to a computer requires only a USB cable.

The SPD-SX Special Edition also comes with Roland’s SPD-SX Wave Manager software.
