Upgrade the TD-50 V-Drums module to full TD-50X specifications, including new sounds and kits, complete VH-14D digital hi-hat support, 32-channel USB audio, and more.     

The TD-50X Upgrade brings the complete expressive power of Roland’s most advanced drum module to the original TD-50. Filled with new instrument sounds, preset kits, and feature enhancements—including fully optimized performance with the VH-14D digital hi-hat—this upgrade is a must-have for all TD-50 module owners.


Refined Playability and 900-Plus New Sounds
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 amazing playability with rich overtones and unlimited sonic colors.
70 New Preset Kits
Also included are 70 newly developed preset kits, all purposefully tuned for full, punchy, and dynamic sound. Imagine acoustic drums that are mic’d, processed, and mixed in a world-class studio—that’s what you’ll get. 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.
VH-14D Digital Hi-Hat Support
The advanced digital pad technology first introduced with the PD-140DS snare and CY-18DR ride has been expanded with the VH-14D digital hi-hat, bringing ultra-detailed playability to the three most nuanced pieces in the kit. This groundbreaking electronic hi-hat takes performance to an all-new level, offering touch sensitivity, tonal variation, and open/closed resolution never available until now. The TD-50X Upgrade provides the most complete and immersive VH-14D experience you can get, with sounds and processing fully optimized for its sophisticated detection capabilities.

32 Channels for Computer Music Production
If you use your TD-50 for recording and producing tracks in a DAW, the TD-50X upgrade makes it even more powerful. With the Core Audio driver on a Mac or ASIO driver on a Windows computer, there’s now support for 32 channels of premium-quality audio transfer over USB, up from the 10 channels with the standard TD-50.
PureAcoustic Ambience and More Multi-Effects
The TD-50X Upgrade extends the TD-50’s ambience features with PureAcoustic Ambience technology, bringing a new level of realism to the electronic drumming experience. Instantly place kits in stunningly natural and immersive sound fields, from tight studio spaces to massive halls and everything in-between. More sound-shaping tools are included with the upgrade as well, with multi-effects selections increased from 30 to 38.


The TD-50X Upgrade is available through Roland Cloud Manager, the software-based interface for Roland Cloud content. Simply download, install, and open Roland Cloud Manager on your computer, and then create a free Roland Account when prompted (or sign in if you already have one). From there, navigate to the V-Drums menu and select the TD-50X Upgrade for payment and installation details.

After you’ve upgraded, be sure to 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 1 in Roland Cloud Manager.
