Alesis has a long history of creating great-sounding studio monitors for project studios, tracking rooms, and more. Today, our goal is making it easier than ever for you to get great sounding, low-distortion audio into your monitors. Using standard plug-and-play USB, we have accomplished just that in our new M1Active 520 USB monitors. Just plug them into your Mac or PC and you’re ready to listen to the direct output from your DAW or other software. And you can use them as a recording interface thanks to a pair of balanced inputs. How handy is that? Check ‘em out!

The Alesis team is in Indianapolis this week for the Percussive Arts Society International Convention – PASIC! They’ll be showing the brand new DM10 Pro Kit, the DM6 Kit, and other selections from the Alesis percussion line in booth 1046. We’ll keep you posted on the latest, greatest news from the show right here.

MMR Magazine had a round-table discussion with the major electronic percussion players and Alesis was no exception. Read all about the latest trends and new technologies from Alesis in this MMR article.

Are you looking to update your DM5 Kit or DM5 Pro Kit’s sounds? Or maybe you have DRUM ROCKER, the drum set controller we helped develop for Rock Band® video games and are ready to move from Rock Band to playing IN a rock band. Or maybe you’re looking to add some electronics to your acoustic drum set. No matter what your situation is, the DM6 is a great drum module with tons of features, great sounds, a tiny physical footprint, and a tiny price tag. Learn all about the DM6.

The Andromeda is one of the world’s finest synthesizers. Even though it’s been around for years, it’s never a bad time to take a fresh look at it. Synthtopia did just that with a video review of the Andromeda A6.

The new DM6 Kit packs a ton of power, flexibility, and features into a small size and a surprisingly tiny price. Planet Ill chatted with us about the DM6 Kit, Alesis electronic percussion, and electronic drumming in general. Have a read.

We’re proud and excited for you to check out our new top-of-the-line electronic drum set, the DM10 Pro Kit. In this month’s spotlight column, we’ll introduce you to some of the finer points and special features that make the DM10 Pro Kit the powerhouse it is. Read on from more!

What’s better than beats to go? Beats and bucks. This month, pick up an SR18 drum machine and we’ll cut you a check for $20.

Handheld recording right to your iPod meets mounting and positioning flexibility in this complete kit. And now, for an extremely limited, time, not only do you get great sound and great performance when you grab a ProTrack Recording Kit – you get a pocket full of cash back!

You can mix up to eight channels and send them discretely to your Mac or PC with this advanced mixer. And while you’re routing all those signals into your DAW for recording, we’ll route a check for $30 back to you!

If eight channels and $30 is good, 16 channels and $60 is better! That’s right: pick up a MultiMix 16 USB 2.0 mixer this month and we’ll rush $60 back to you.
