The TD-17 Song Player
RECORDING WITH THE TD-17 SONG PLAYER
An audio performance is simple to record using just the TD-17.
WAV file recordings can be streamed directly from the SD card or even imported as user samples and triggered from any pad you like.
On the SD Card, you can record along to a chosen audio file by selecting the ‘SONG’ option in the recording screen.
The TD-17 SD CARD STORAGE
SD cards can hold sample data, WAV songs/recordings, kits, and system settings.
You can use a card reader to save backups of your card for safety on either a MAC or PC.
Here is an example of how the SD card structure works on the TD-17.
Connecting to a Computer or iPad
You can easily connect the Roland TD-17 to either a MAC or PC for easy recording and practice.
Return the module to its default settings with a factory reset if you have any issues.
This clears all kits and global settings so make sure any custom kits or changes you’ve made are saved individually and as a backup to SD card.
TIP: Click the “Reset With User Samples’ to clear any user samples too for a fresh reset.
NOTE: It’s important to also re-calibrate the hi-hat in the case of the VH-10 or VH-11
