[NAMM] Alesis PerformancePad Pro
Alesis announces the PerformancePad Pro, described as a high-end version of the PerformancePad multi-pad percussion instrument.
Alesis will unveil the PerformancePad Pro at the 2011 NAMM Show, booth #6400, from January 13-16, Anaheim, CA.
Drummers and percussionists can expand their setups or play standalone with the PerformancePad Pro. With eight velocity-sensitive drum pads, kick and hi-hat inputs and over 500 multi-sampled sounds with Dynamic Articulation, the PerformancePad Pro is a drum station. Drummers can mount the PerformancePad Pro on stands and racks using the Module Mount, sold separately, or they can play it tabletop.
The PerformancePad Pro contains the sequencing engine from Alesis’ drum machines. This three-part sequencer is designed to enable drummers and instrumentalists to program drum, percussion and accompaniment parts for creating complete tracks or playing along with loops.
The PerformancePad Pro features a sound set with acoustic and electronic drums, percussion, sound effects, bass and more. The PerformancePad Pro also contains Alesis studio effects including Reverb, EQ and Compression.
Drummers can also use the PerformancePad Pro as a MIDI controller for playing any sound module, synth or software.
