Alesis Performance Pad
I use it for more than a year.
I bought it to mount a transportable kit for small herds traveling or small rehearsals or the transportation and installation of a drumkit (acoustic or electric) is not possible. I also use it now to add instrumentals to my drumkit (bells, ribbon, etc).
Despite the name, this is not the Pro and far from it. The pads are not tops, or touching or quality and rendering (one return service after two months to change the trigger snare pad ... and I do not bourine).
The sound module is very average.
The ergonomics of electronics is awful ... I still do not understand the logic (which is used to Roland 1000x better in this area).
That said, for having researched the market, it is the only full pad that mimics prestas real pros (Roland, Yam) in this price range.
But despite all the work done with its limitations and asked me a good turn ... for the price once again.
I recently tried a Roland SPD-30 is it has nothing to do (quality / touch pads and sound module) but it's double the price. I am considering an upgrade for later.
What I like most: price and portability = quickly have a small functional drumkit play anywhere (held in a large sports bag with stand + support and small amp with subwoofer).
The least: the pads: touching, unwanted tripping, rebound tenderness.
My rating is 6/10 = good for the quality / price.

I use the performance pad to write my lines perceived through vsti: for this use, this module suits me very well, I have nothing to him charged.
Sounds embedded however are a little cheesy, difficult to use, unless you only play the ball on 14 July.

votwings's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" blah ..."

Alesis Performance Pad
Hello, I play in a group of experimental rock / electro.

I bought this CSA a few months ago, for the sole purpose of launching pre-recorded MIDI loops using Ableton.

I just wanted to prevent anyone with the same goal of not making the same mistake as me. For the simple reason that on mine, 4 of 8 trigger pads at a too high sound pressure ... So basically when you cry in front or when the band plays a passage a little too hard, there is much chance for a loop trips or stops ... And I can tell you that we sought the reason for the problem for a long time to even build a base for the device, more or less isolated from external vibrations thinking it was the solution but it's really at pads as it happens. And there is no sensitivity setting in the camera. Maybe there are there a in Ableton but I've never found.
Solution: play on the four pads that trigger only when you hit it. Buy or something else.

For those who use it to play the "virtual drumkit", know that the sounds of the performance pads are frankly kitsch and they all look alike.

So unless you have found a way to counter this "sursensibilité", its use in the same case as mine is not recommended.

Or maybe I've had no luck ...
