News Alesis SamplePad

Alesis introduced SamplePad, a four-pad instrument, at PASIC 2011 in Indianapolis, Indiana from November 9-12.

SamplePad can complement a drumset or percussion rig, and allows drummers to load their own sounds. It has 25 percussion and electronic drum sounds built in, and allows drummers to load their own samples using a standard SD card to create sound combinations. An external trigger input is included and it can be mounted it on virtually any snare stand or rack, according to Alesis.

By striking a pad and dialing to the desired sound, drummers can reassign sounds as needed, and entire pad combinations can be saved internally as “kits” for recall. Drummers can tune and add reverb to their samples, then assign them to any of the four pads or the kick input. A MIDI output allows drummers to use SamplePad as a controller for triggering sound modules and software. SamplePad fits on a standard snare drum stand or can be mounted to any stand or rack (Alesis Module Mount sold separately). For studio use, SamplePad can be played on a tabletop.

 

SamplePad comes equipped with standard dual 1/4-inch outputs for amplification, and a headphone output for monitoring. Its kick input is designed to work with most pads and triggers including the Alesis DMPad and RealHead Kick Pads.

 

Pricing & Availability:

SamplePad will be available at musical instrument retailers in Q1 of 2012 with an estimated street price of $199.00.
