Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

I use this at church to add some different sounds and run loops. Love it, so easy. I've also been using it for my YouTube videos. Easy to record just the pad alone or into an interface.

Develops output noise

    Best Uses

      Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

      Previously, I would have given this 4 stars. A couple of annoying things with this unit...
      1. Every time you want it to stay on more than 30 minutes, you have to set it to do so. It will not permanently hold that save. Kind of annoying to have it shut off automatically after 30 min during a several hour rehearsal or a 2 hour gig.
      2. 2 weeks beyond the manufacturer warranty period, it developed an annoying output hum. Apparently, this is a common issue on these units. THIS is the main reason for my 1 star review. Beyond frustrating!! Shame on you Alesis!!

      Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

      This SamplePad was a fathers day gift to me and what a great one!! I had no problem using the utility and files from Alesis to do what it says it will do. I even made some custom samples from my own drum kit using an app and loaded them with ease! The LED lit pads are very cool too and useful!

      Does not perform as designed

      By sarge62436

      from Mechanicsville VA

      Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

      Samples will not load, even when converted using Alesis utility. This is a low-end product and not suitable for serious use. I'm returning to store tomorrow.

        Decent pad for the dough

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

        I just upgraded to this pad from the previous four pad Alesis model. The on-board sounds are mostly the same, which are fine for my needs as a dance band drummer. I haven't attempted to use the SD card option but it looks like this model may be more user friendly for loading sounds. I was skeptical about the small rectangular pads on the top but they are very responsive and easy to play. My only gripe with this model is placement of the control buttons on the bottom right. It's very easy to miss the bottom right pad and accidentally hit the buttons changing the pad settings.

        About Me Professional Musician

        Pros

        • Functional
        • Great side-tool in the arsenal for most players
        • Made through year 1, my samples still sound good
        • Memory Card allows many custom samples

        Cons

        • Can buzz on some stages
        • Difficult To Use
        • heavy player > 2 pads' sounds when hitting 1
        • Until you get it set up, it's a pain to navigate

        Best Uses

        • Auxillary Sampling Trigger Use (Not primary)
        • Backup
        • Concerts
        • Practicing

        Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

        I play keys and electronic drums in loops and jammed this thing all last year, sometimes with some serious intentions, live in concert. It holds up from the beating, and my custom samples sound stellar through the mix. It does occasionally trigger 2 pads of sound when I only hit one REALLY hard. LOL. I hear a buzz some nights, and I can usually attack it by plugging in my mixer into the same outlet, at least helps the buzz sometimes. Many nights it is crystal clear, and in my studio as I write this, it is hooked up and silent, no buzz. It is small and bounces around a lot, and I am moving to a heavier duty setup live.

        Mixed feelings as I can certainly see some pro's having a beef with the machine, but I have had loads of great gigs with it. ~ If my friend's intentions were to have a sample pad, and not a drum... then yes I would recommend it. It handles the stickings with no lag and drums well, but there are so many better options in the market for people jamming the thing for hours.
