In June of 2011, Roland released firmware Version 2.0 for the TD-9. All TD-9 modules can be updated to this new version.
Note: All owners of the TD-9K2 or TD-9KX2 sets already have Version 2.0 installed.
Version 2.0 adds the following features:
- 30 new kick and snare instruments, increasing the TD-9's internal sounds from 522 to 552.
- 40 additional kits, increasing the TD-9's internal kit memory from 50 to 99.
Note: With Version 2.0, Kits 1-40 are all new factory kits, and Kits 41-91 are the original TD-9 factory kits. Kits 92-99 are named "User Kit." Even though these kits are defined as User Kits, all 99 internal kits can be customized to your liking.
- Adds MP3 playback (via USB memory key) capability to the already available .WAV playback feature in the original TD-9.
- Adds updated trigger settings for the KD-9, PDX-6, CY-12C, and CY-13R pads.
