What we say:

At A Glance:

The HandSonic HPD-20 by Roland brings percussion into the 21st century. This powerful hand percussion instrument is made up of 13 velocity-sensitive pads and features 850 built-in sounds with space for 500 of your own samples and is host to other expressive tools including effects engines with D-Beam control.

Features We Love:

Sounds and Samples

Traditional percussion instruments can take up a lot of stage space for the relatively narrow range of tones they offer. This makes the HandSonic a percussionist's best friend, featuring hundreds of high-quality percussion samples in a portable yet expressive instrument. Whether you're looking for tablas, clave, snare drums or 808 claps, you'll find them here. There is even a huge selection of melodic based samples like steel drums, marimbas and litophones to give you further creative options. Each sound can be edited to your preference using the tuning, dampening and effect controls. Plus the ability to load in your own sounds really makes the HandSonic an indispensable tool for your percussive performances.

Pads and Inputs

The 13 velocity-sensitive silicone rubber pads have been arranged to make the most out of the HandSonic's compact size. With a selection of different sized pads which are ultra-sensitive, the HandSonic feels natural and responsive. The HandSonic is also compatible with hi-hat control pedals which can be used for opening and closing hi-hat sounds and features a trigger input that is compatible with most modern drum pads and triggers, these really make the HandSonic an instrument that's easy to slot into any drum or percussion set up.

D-Beam

Roland's D-Beam technology has been featured on most of their modern flagship synthesizers and keyboards. This light-sensitive controller allows for hand movements to affect specified parameters. This could be momentary bursts of delays or reverb, changes to pitch or for bringing in modulation effects.

Highlights:

  • Huge selection of sounds in a compact form
  • Responsive pads will feel natural to percussionists
  • Sampling capabilities give the HandSonic an advantage over other percussion pads
  • Can be mounted on a stand
