Roland Announce Red Special Edition of the SPD-SX

Red Roland SPD-SX Special Edition

Roland have recently announced a red special edition of their legendary SPD-SX. The biggest change to this version is the huge onboard memory expansion – the Roland SPD-SX Special Edition comes with 16GB of internal storage. This allows for up to 50 hours of mono sample storage, which is a big increase from the 4GB of storage in the current version of the SPD-SX. The Special Edition also comes with Ableton Live Lite, which can be used for recording, production, and live sample triggering (using the SPD-SX as a controller to trigger and manipulate effects). The sparkling red finish of the SPD-SX Special Edition is designed to stand out on stage, and (in our opinion) gives this device a bit of a retro look.
