With sounds and features inspired by Roland's flagship TD-50, the V-Drums TD-17 sound module makes an attractive option for the pro and intermediate eDrummer. 50 preset kits and 310 drum/percussion sounds equip this module for virtually any style of music, from world music to EDM and metal. User sounds can be imported as WAV files via SD/HC card — a first for a V-Drums module at this level — and saved to any of 50 user kits, as well as blended with stock kits and further edited using the TD-17's powerful processing and effects engine. Another impressive feature is the TD-17's onboard Bluetooth transceiver, which both streams music from your phone for practicing, jamming, and recording, and sends MIDI to your DAW over Bluetooth (at the cost of a little latency) for tracking made easy. Of course, for rock-solid record applications and legacy setups, audio/MIDI over USB and a traditional 5-pin MIDI output are also available in the Roland V-Drums TD-17.


Sell me on an electronic drum kit

Not sure if it has 5 pin midi, but the Roland TD17 is great value. You can import samples too. Given your main criteria, I don't know whether you should worry about the midi connector.

Roland files trademarks for 303 and 808 designs in Germany

...modules for Eurorack like Torcido and Bitrazer. Most of the drum and percussion division is industry standard and leading the pack. TD50, TD17, SPDSX, TM6 Pro etc..... People just want to continue to repeat these myths, even when they are patently not true.
