Alesis PerformancePad Pro Eight-Pad Electronic Drum Instrument Now in Stores

Multi-percussion electronic drum pad instrument contains 500 sounds and three-part sequencer

Cumberland, R.I. (June 30, 2011) – Alesis, a leading manufacturer of electronic percussion instruments and studio electronics, announces that the PerformancePad Pro multi-pad percussion instrument is now available from musical instrument retailers everywhere.

Drummers and percussionists can expand their setups or play standalone with the PerformancePad Pro percussion instrument. With eight velocity-sensitive drum pads, kick and hi-hat inputs and over 500 multi-sampled sounds with Dynamic Articulation™, the PerformancePad Pro is an all-in-one drum station. Drummers can mount the PerformancePad Pro on stands and racks using the Alesis Module Mount, sold separately, or they can play it tabletop.

The PerformancePad Pro electronic drum pad instrument contains the sequencing technology from Alesis’ best-selling SR18 drum machine. This three-part sequencer enables drummers and instrumentalists to program drum, percussion and accompaniment parts for creating complete tracks or playing along with loops.

The PerformancePad Pro features a modern, high-definition sound set with acoustic and electronic drums, percussion, sound effects, bass and more. The PerformancePad Pro also contains powerful Alesis studio effects including Reverb, EQ and Compression for customizing sounds to perfection.

Drummers can also use the PerformancePad Pro as a MIDI controller for playing virtually any sound module, synth or software. Practicing and performing musicians can connect and mix in a music source via the PerformancePad Pro’s input.

“Drummers really responded to the Performance Pad,” said Dan Radin, Alesis Product Manager. “Now, with the PerformancePad Pro electric drum pad, they’ll have an even larger library of drum and percussion sounds that they can incorporate into their acoustic drum set or play standalone.”
