Roland TD-20/TD-12 Tutorial185
Learning how to use your new Roland TD-20 or TD-12 has never been easier thanks to the official Roland DVD Owner's Manual!
Without a doubt, the new TD-20 is Roland’s best percussion sound module ever, offering the ultimate sonic quality, over 500 new sounds, plus superb expressiveness and dynamic range when used with the new PD-125BK/105BK V-Pads and VH-12 V-Hi-Hat. With the superior sensitivity, drummers can play more naturally and without having to adjust their playing technique. The TD-20 includes the ability to vary the rim shot and bass drum sounds depending on how you play, plus new interval control for better snare drum rolls and more realistic cymbal swells. Close your eyes. Listen to every articulation and sound being faithfully re-created until the moment your cymbal fades away, and you’ll swear this is a real acoustic set.
With the same pro-quality sound as the TD-20, the new TD-12 drum module provides hundreds of expressive instruments and play-along sequences in a streamlined, affordable package.

I am an older drummer (boomer) who had never played e-drums. Bought a set of V-12's a few years ago but was only getting a portion of the features available to me. Additionally, I could not makes some functions work. Paper instructions were confusion and forums ended up being condescending. After viewing this DVD (at my pace), I am using 75-80 % of kit vice 50% or less. Very pleased with this product.
It's so much easier to learn about the multitude of functions available to the V-Drum user. From the proper set-up procedure to tweaking every aspect of the individual triggers. Just put the dvd in your laptop, set up next to your kit, and stop the video to allow a trial run of what was discussed in the chapter. Clear, consise footage...very well done.
I got a once in a lifetime deal on a Roland TDW-20 drum module and needed to learn how to operate it. This video helped greatly in that pursuit.
Yes, it's the only tutorial out there!!! Very helpful!
