The Alesis USB Pro Drum Kit is the world's first electronic drum kit designed specifically to take direct advantage of the power of the computer for sound generation.


The drum set combines the Alesis Trigger|iO trigger-to-MIDI interface with drum pads and SURGE Cymbals, giving players a kit with realistic feel and virtually limitless sonic possibilities.

A dual-zone snare pad, three dual-zone tom pads and a kick pad each feature an eight-inch mylar, tension-adjustable drumhead and a 2.3mm triple-flanged counterhoop mirroring the feel of acoustic drums. SURGE Cymbals are made of brass cymbal alloy and feature built-in triggers. Because they are true, lathed cymbals rather than rubber pads, SURGE Cymbals offer a natural cymbal feel. A 12-inch Hi-Hat, a 13-inch Crash with choke capability and a 16-inch dual-zone Ride with choke capability are included.

Sound-generation software BFD Lite is included from FXpansion, placing the sonic flexibility of multiple drum-sound sets with adjustable articulation, velocity layers and microphone positions at drummers’ fingertips. USB Pro Drum Kit is compatible with computers running Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.

In a further development, Alesis has created a special configuration file, which optimizes its SR18 for use as an inexpensive drum-sound module for use with the USB Pro Drum Kit. Drummers need only an inexpensive MIDI cable and a custom configuration file, available for free download at the Alesis website. Using SR18 as a sound source enables drummers to take advantage of a host of special features.
