SRX-01 Dynamic Drum Kits
Expansion board

  The first in the SRX-series of Roland expansion boards, "Dynamic Drum Kits" was co-produced by Roland and Spectrasonics in 2000.

This board contains a selected array of drum samples, extremely well-recorded, and in many variations.

A bit rock-oriented, it's however possible to adapt it to other genres, especially pop and jazz.

Spectrasonics made several drum sample-CDs in the past, always of high quality, so this board doesn't disappoint:  the kits are absolutely "slamming", powerful, and very clean.
