Roland has introduced the TM-2 Trigger Module, which they say is a new electronic percussion module with high-quality onboard sounds, user sound expansion via SCHD cards, and two trigger inputs for a variety of Roland pads and drum triggers. They tell us that, battery powered and compact, the TM-2 provides a simple, affordable solution for drummers that want to create a hybrid kit that brings acoustic and electronic elements together. Here's the full details in Roland's own words...

The TM-2 is easy to integrate with any acoustic drum set, mounting quickly and unobtrusively onto a hi-hat stand or drum rack using standard hardware. Thanks to convenient battery-powered operation, players can avoid the hassle of bringing AC power to their acoustic setups. The intuitive panel features straightforward controls for assigning sounds and saving kits, plus large, easy-to-press buttons for calling up kits while performing.

Built-in trigger inputs allow players to connect two pads or trigger devices at once. Nearly any pad in Roland's extensive V-Drums lineup can be used, including those that support dual triggering. Ideal options for a hybrid application include the BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad and KT-10 Kick Trigger Pedal. The TM-2 is also works great with Roland's RT-series acoustic drum triggers that mount on kick, snare, and tom drums.

The TM-2 is filled with over 100 ready-to-play professional sounds. Included are many sounds and tonal elements optimized for layering with acoustic drums, making it easy for players to achieve polished, high-impact sounds when playing live through a P.A. system. There's also a generous selection of electronic sounds for modern music styles, as well as traditional percussion instruments such as cowbell, wood block, wind chimes, and many others.

Via the TM-2's SDHC card slot, players can trigger their own WAV sounds transferred to SDHC media from a computer, such as processed drums from song recordings, sound effects, looped grooves, or complete backing tracks. WAV sounds can be used right alongside the TM-2's internal sounds to create kits.

The TM-2 includes a powerful multi-effects engine, allowing players to enhance their kits with studio-quality processing such as reverb, delay, flanger, and more.

MIDI I/O in the TM-2 lets users trigger sounds in V-Drums modules, keyboards, and synth modules, and connect to a computer via a MIDI interface to record MIDI data and play sounds in popular music software. It's also possible to play the TM-2's sounds from an external MIDI device.
