TD-50 Guide

The Drummer’s Guide To The TD-50 – How To Use Pad EFX and Multi EFX

Effects used on drum sounds are great for bringing new life and impact to familiar tones. From big reverb and modulation effects, to distortion and extreme EQ, effects used on drum sounds even give the player the chance to radically alter the nature of a song that they’re playing.

Famous and memorable drum sounds with effects include Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir (phaser) and Phil Collins’ In The Air Tonight (gated room reverb sound).

With the TD-50, you’re not regulated to the studio if you want to add effects to your drum sounds. Each trigger input of the TD-50 can have its own effect for creating new sounds, along with complimenting or enhancing their impact.

There are also time-based multi-effects, such as delays, reverbs and enhancers that each sound of the kit can be “sent” to, for enhancing or dramatically changing the overall kit sound.
