Roland has announced that the TD-50X Upgrade is available now for download on Roland Cloud.
Bringing the complete expressive power of Roland’s most advanced drum module to the original TD-50 V-Drums, the TD-50X Upgrade is filled with new instrument sounds, preset kits, and feature enhancements—including a fully optimized performance with the VH-14D digital hi-hat—making it a must-have for all TD-50 module owners.
The TD-50X Upgrade features over 900 total sounds—up from 422 in the original module—including hundreds of new kick, snare, hi-hat, tom, and cymbal selections. These premium drums leverage the full expressive potential of the Prismatic Sound Modeling engine, providing incredible playability with rich overtones and unlimited sonic colors.
Also included are 70 newly developed preset kits, all purposefully tuned for full, punchy, and dynamic sound. Created with top drummers and recording engineers, these inspiring kits let you take on any style at the touch of a button, from traditional jazz to full-throttle metal.
The TD-50X and upgraded TD-50 modules are the first V-Drums products to be supported through Roland Cloud. This evolving platform offers a diverse range of authentic Roland software synthesizers and instrument sound libraries. Roland Cloud unlocks an expanding collection of premium V-Drums kits and curated samples for studio production and live playing, with access to a variety of releases the moment they arrive.
The Roland TD-50X Upgrade is available now for $199 USD through Roland Cloud Manager, the software-based interface for Roland Cloud content. Simply download, install, and open Roland Cloud Manager on a computer, and then create a free Roland Account when prompted (or sign into an already existing account). From there, navigate to the V-Drums menu and select the TD-50X Upgrade for payment and installation details.
Once upgraded, users can try out the TD-50X Free Kits available at the TD-50X product page on the Roland website, as well as the free TD-50X Session Collection 01 in Roland Cloud Manager.
