Overview

The SamplePad Pro is a perfect add-on to a live drum set for special effects or for incoprporating electronic drum sounds into your acoustic set. It is also an excellent studio tool, and can be used for MIDI input when programming drum tracks. Having a responsive pad instead of tapping rhythms in with two fingers from a keyboard make a tremendous difference in feel and dynamics. If you have some stick technique, all the better.

The SamplePad Pro is an all-in-one percussion and sample-playing instrument. It comes equipped with 8 responsive, LED-illuminated rubber pads and 10 preset kits. Use an SD or SDHC card (not included) up to 32GB to store an additional 20 user kits and 512 samples per card. The convenient USB connection allows you to drag and drop samples from your Mac or PC without removing the SD card from the SamplePad Pro. Tweak each sample as you please: built-in reverb, pitch, panning and sensitivity adjustment allow full creative expression.

Two additional pad inputs, plus kick and hi-hat inputs, allow you to expand your setup into a full-blown compact e-drum kit. With an optional module mount, USB MIDI, 5-pin MIDI, and an 1/8" audio input for playing along to your favorite tracks, the SamplePad Pro integrates seamlessly into your existing acoustic or electronic drum kit setup.
Customize. Perform. Play.

Features

  • Play onboard sounds or load your own via the SD card slot
  • 10 ready-to-play kits with over 200 drum and cymbal sounds accessible via MIDI
  • 8 two-shot, isolated rubber pads with active blue LED illumination
  • Two additional pad inputs, plus kick and hi-hat trigger/switch inputs
  • Save sounds on SD card (up to 20 Kits), accessible via USB
  • LCD display and software utility for complete control

Excellent for the price

Comments about Alesis Sample Pad Pro Percussion Pad With Onboard Sound Storage:

I suppose if you're a professional drummer using this for shows, there are probably better ones out there, but you'll pay for it. And I've found this product to be fantastic! Response on the pads is great, I've had no crosstalk at all between the pads (and if you do have crosstalk, you can always adjust the pad sensitivity to reduce that problem). Very happy with this sample pad! Sounds great, feels solid, and the price is unbeatable for the quality.

it's cheap but that is not a reason to be bad

Comments about Alesis Sample Pad Pro Percussion Pad With Onboard Sound Storage:

Alot of problems with it, the volume is super slow, i use it to play on live shows and it needs a lot of gain to be at normal level, even if i have it at max... another problem is the poor response of the pads, it use to trigger a random pad every few hits, they call it "Crosstalk"... but its the half of the price of the goods ones, so i have it to keep it to myself i guess... :(

Pad problems

Pros

  • Easy To Use

Cons

  • Not Functional
  • Poor Quality

Best Uses

    Comments about Alesis Sample Pad Pro Percussion Pad With Onboard Sound Storage:

    The pads were awful. Triggering the top two pads (usually used for cymbal) required a heavy whack. So much that the adjacent pads underneath would trigger. Adjusting the sensitivity to max had no affect. I took it back the next day. I doubt the Sample Pad Pro will be on the market in a year.

    Bad...Just bad

    Cons

    • Crosstalk

    • Practicing

    Comments about Alesis Sample Pad Pro Percussion Pad With Onboard Sound Storage:

    I got this thing and returned it the same day i got it. When you hit one pad, every few hits it will trigger a random pad. Plus you can consistently hit the pads the same way and the sound will be different every time. It will either be too quiet or too loud.

    DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

    By Drummer

    from MARYLAND

    About Me Professional Musician

    Pros

    • Easy To Use

    Cons

    • CROSS TALK BETWEEN PADS
    • VERY SLOW LOAD TIMES

    Best Uses

      Comments about Alesis Sample Pad Pro Percussion Pad With Onboard Sound Storage:

      This sampler is good if you just want some extra sounds. However, when it comes to loading your own sounds it is awful! The load times between kits takes forever and it's not good for live performances. I'm saving up for the Roland SPDX.
