Roland SPD-30 Octapad and BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad Review

The last video in our series of Roland electronic drum videos has Trevor Root showing off the Roland SPD-30 Octapad and the Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger. The SPD-30 Octapad is similar but also very different when compared to the Roland SPD-SX. The looping features are similar but you get a lot more sounds inside the Octapad. The main difference between the two are that the SPD-SX is meant for loading in your own sounds, while the SPD-30 Octapad is loaded with tons of its own percussion and FX sounds. The BT-1 Bar Trigger pad is a simple trigger for either expanding your existing electronic drum or drum pad setup. It can also function as a simple solution for adding electronic elements to your existing drum kit. Here is our review of both the Roland SPD-30 Octapad and the Roland BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad.
