The Alesis Performance Pad features eight velocity-sensitive drum pads and a built-in electronic drum machine with professional sounds and features. You can create and record your own beats from scratch or play along with the built-in patterns. With Performance Pad, you can practice quietly with headphones, or plug into an amplifier.

Performance Pad includes foot-switch inputs for a bass drum pedal, hi-hat pedal, and a line-level input to connect a CD player, iPod, computer, or other audio device so that percussionists can play along with nearly any recorded mix. Built-in rhythm patterns are also included to complement playing.

Dynamic Articulation technology is included to add nuance to the feel of every drum hit. In addition, there are industry-standard mounting holes on the bottom for easy attachment to an existing drum kit rack.

The 24-bit, high-quality headphone output on the Performance Pad insures a no-compromise playback experience without disturbing others. Connection to keyboards and sound modules is made simple thanks to the integrated MIDI output.

its good but not exactly what I thought

By ns

from new york

Comments about Alesis Performance Pad:

i ordered this and it came quick which is good . when i got it i setup it up and was using the pad its self and the sounds were amazing . i play deathmetal and what i wanted to use it for was "bassdrops" and bass drum trigers for an acoustic set. once i opened the bass drum trigger i tested it out .NOPE. didnt work .and all this time i was dying for the sound and it doesnt work. so if you like this for home and or messing around id say buy it because its sounds great for anything even hip-hop and very good for works with electric drumset pedals but no pads or triggers.if you are looking for the punch of deathmetal bassdrums just save up for the dm5 even tho its more money its what works best for that and sounds good live.

Amazing sound quality

By Rob

from st. james, NY

Comments about Alesis Performance Pad:

This thing is amazing. I can play on it all day because there's so many different settings. It has amazing, quality sound and sounds like a professional recording when you plug your headphones into it. Definitely recommended. You don't need to buy expensive pedals for it like I did. I'm going to return the pedal and pedal tower that i bought because if you get the right connector you can simply plug a rock band pedal into it without wasting hundreds of dollars. I also purchased a splitter for the plug of the pedal to use double bass. Also great for recording and performing live with.
