Overview

If your gigs demand more than your acoustic drums can deliver, the Roland RT-MicS is the gateway to an inspiring new world of hybrid sounds. And if you’re daunted by the prospect of a hybrid setup, rest assured that it’s simple to incorporate this compact module into your acoustic kit - with no extra gear - transform your snare and tom into versatile digital pads.

Hybrid Drum Module

The RT-MicS has eight preloaded sounds - from hand-clap to snare variation - that you’ll be using confidently within minutes. But for ambitious drummers, that’s just the start: you could import sampled sounds from a computer via USB, use the onboard mic to capture and process the acoustic snare/tom sound, or even mix acoustic and digital sounds for a bold signature tone. Whatever your ideas, the RT-MicS is the fastest way to explore the exciting possibilities of hybrid drums.

  • User samples can be imported via USB
  • 8 preloaded sounds including hand-clap and snare variations

  • Electronic output can be used as mix output for both electronic and mic sounds
  • Battery operation (006P/9V) ideal for street performance
  • Easy to set up, simple to operate
  • Download free RT-MicS Wave Sender (PC/Mac) for transferring user samples to unit

Layer Acoustic and Digital Sounds

Nobody wants to sound like every other drummer on the scene, and the RT-MicS makes it easy to layer sounds for head-turning snare and tom performance. It’s simple to trigger the eight preloaded sounds - just hit the drum with the RT-MicS attached and your chosen electronic sound will be played simultaneously. But layering sounds is where it gets interesting, with one hit giving you both a sample-based sound and a raw acoustic sound. Perhaps you’ll choose to enhance your snare, mixing that familiar acoustic crack with a complementary snare sound from the RT-MicS. Or maybe you’ll layer a tambourine onto the snare drum for a soulful backbeat.

Import Sampled Sounds

When you’ve got a killer drum sound in mind, the RT-MicS is the fastest way to include it in your performance. First, download the free RT-MicS Sender software for transferring your original sample data to the unit. Then, import up to eight sounds (10 seconds max) via USB and get creative. You could mix your acoustic snare and toms with sound effects, or layer them with other instruments that you can’t bring to the gig, like gongs and timpani. Alternatively, to save precious setup time, you could import tambourine or shaker sounds (no mics needed) and trigger them by striking your drums. For extra flexibility, you can even set the RT-MicS Sender software so that imported sounds are only triggered when you hit the rim.

Flexible Outputs

As a gigging drummer, you need flexible gear that can adapt as your circumstances change. The RT-MicS puts you in charge, with open-ended output options that support live performance in every type of venue. You could output the electronic sound and captured snare/tom sound separately, or mix them both together for the prefect blend. Both volume levels are adjustable for fast balancing during performance, while the electronic sound is muted by simply holding down the large tone select button.

Fast Set Up

Some players are wary of embracing hybrid drumming, thinking that it’s unfamiliar and complicated which could lead to lengthy setups at the venue. The RT-MicS is a simple and intuitive entry point into this fascinating world. It couldn’t be simpler to attach the unit onto the rim of your snare or tom—no additional tools required—then adjust sensitivity and threshold levels using the no-nonsense threshold dial. The speedy setup ensures you won’t miss a beat when you arrive late to the venue, while optional battery operation means you can take your mind-blowing hybrid sounds to the street.
