The DM Lite module has a built-in Drum Coach to help improve your drumming skills. To get to the Drum Coach:
Each of the 1 through 5 buttons begin a different exercise. Below, you will find information on each one.
This exercise helps to improve timing. The closer you are to striking the trigger on the beat, the more likely the 3 & 4 buttons will light up green. The farther away from the beat, the farther away the buttons that light up will be.
The second exercise helps to improve your accuracy as the beat speeds up or slows down. The closer you are to striking the trigger on the beat, the more likely the 3 & 4 buttons will light up.
This exercise helps to improve accuracy when changing rhythms. The closer you are to striking the trigger on the beat, the more likely the 3 & 4 buttons will light up. At the end of the exercise, you will receive an overall accuracy score.
This exercise helps with identifying various pads by sound, as well as using multiple pads simultaneously.
The final exercise allows you to mute certain drums so that you can create your own drum part.
The DM Lite module can also be connected to a computer via its built-in USB/MIDI port. By connecting the module to a computer with a USB cable, you will then be able to hit a pad and trigger a sound in your favorite drum software. With the ability to send and receive MIDI information through the built-in USB/MIDI port, the Alesis DM Lite kit is very flexible and allows you to trigger nearly any sound you can dream of!
