Superb sounds, with unlimited potential for expansion via USB.
The realistic sound, wide dynamic range, and accurate tracking of the Alesis DM10 Drum Module make it a top choice among electronic drum sets. The Alesis sound library has sounds built from uncompressed samples of studio drummers. Instead of just programmed sounds, there are true drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds. Included are studio drummer' favorite snares and drum sounds from legendary bands. A multitude of cymbal sounds from American to Chinese to Turkish are also available to create whatever drum kit combination you desire. The Alesis exclusive Dynamic Articulation places this drum module on an entirely other level. This system allows for the timbre and tone of a drum' sound to be affected in addition to its volume. Depending on how hard a drum is hit, the timbre is varied to reflect a realistic performance. This drum module features 12 trigger inputs for an enormous possibility of configurations. It has input for CDs or MP3s so you can play along with your favorite songs. There is also USB connectivity to link directly to your computer so you can constantly incorporate the latest contemporary sounds and tracks. The trigger to MIDI interface allows this system to work with software such as BFD, Toontrack, and Reason. For quiet practice, use the headphone output with its own volume knob. Control all components of your DM10 with a top-panel mixer. The DM10 Drum Module also features 2 stereo pairs of ¼ outputs so separate sounds can be sent to the house and to the monitor. For example, send the metronome or loop to the monitor but leave it out of the audience mix. For a realistic, natural sound with a plentitude of variations, the Alesis DM10 Drum Module is among the finest options available.
