          Comments about ALESIS PERCPAD ELEC DRUM PAD:

          The PercPad is EXACTLY what it says it is, and nothing more. It can be a useful addition to any percussion setup, and because of its compact size, it can easily be added to a regular drum kit.

          Using the 25 internal presets, you can combine five tunable sounds to each pad, including the kick input, which brilliantly accepts both momentary pedals and kick pad outputs, giving you access to a wide variety of possibilities.

          Unfortunately, the lack of a memory function to remember pad assignments is a major flaw in this unit, and makes wholesale changes of assignments problematic in live performance, especially if any tuning is involved. In those situations, I recommend a "set it and forget it" approach, for the most part. For home recording, where you can take the time to tweak every sound, and take advantage of features like assignable pan, and reverb, it can be incredibly versatile.

          I bought it to use as a "drum kit in a box" in conjunction with a kick pad, a hi-hat and a ride cymbal for rehearsals, and semi-acoustic and low volume shows. I just assigned pads to kick, snare and 3 "Hex Toms" the first tuned high, and the third tuned as low as possible. Since the middle "tom" required no tuning, I could reassign that pad to cowbell, hand claps, or whatever was needed, and then change it back without taking too much time. It worked beautifully, and it felt sturdy and durable, mounted on a snare stand.

          It's ridiculously simple to use, so you don't have to be a keyboard guru or master of MIDI to get the sounds you want out of it, but if you or someone you work with is so inclined, it can also be used to trigger sounds other than the ones that are built in, or loops, or whatever MIDI events one can imagine. I suppose you could even use the PercPad to trigger changes in the lights, if they're MIDI capable.

          All in all, you can get a lot out this workman like electronic drum pad, and it takes up a LOT less room than a set of congas. A real bargain!

            Meets my needs.

            Comments about ALESIS PERCPAD ELEC DRUM PAD:

            I would recommend this product to anybody that wanted a controller to trigger a drum program. Will it last? Who knows. I beat on it with sticks. But while it's working, it's making a real difference in my studio.
            Most of the features, I won't use. I use it as a midi trigger only.
            We'll see. Not a lot of luck with Alesis. Their customer service is legendarily bad.
            It's a fantastic value for what I want to do. I just needed a midi controller. It works quite well at that. I had it working with Session Drummer 3 within minutes. Flams, paradiddles and rolls are articulate. It's very easy and quick to program. If you're doing drum tracks iwith a keyboard or sequencer, buy this. Especially if you have any drumming skills at all. It allows you to get a much better human feel than a sequencer and much faster.

            simple, small and dead easy

            By RJGuitars

            from Jacksonville, FL

            Comments about ALESIS PERCPAD ELEC DRUM PAD:

            great value for the money. No fluff, just meat and potatos useful stuff. For the price of a single pad, you'll get pro sounds and decent playability. Just get one - this is a no brainer.
            Four pads, simple interface and useful sounds. Small enough to tuck into any drum set. Kick pedal input is also very useful.

            I'm not new to electronic drums. I've had several setups over the years including a custom rig. So I understood perfectly what I was buying.
            Plastic construction, rubber pads. For price, perfectly acceptable.
            Great value!

            Love it

            from Minnesota

            Comments about ALESIS PERCPAD ELEC DRUM PAD:

            Just got the PercPad. Using it as a MIDI controller for programming my DR-880 (because I'm sick of hitting the little buttons). This makes the creation of the patterns go much faster and also makes them more realistic as I'm able to use drumsticks rather than my index finger.

            I've been looking for something for over a year, but everything I found was way beyond the scope of what I needed, and therefore way too expensive.
