At the 2011 NAMM Show, Alesis announces PercPad, its first four-pad electronic percussion instrument.
The PercPad features four velocity-sensitive pads, kick input, internal sounds and compact size, designed for anyone wanting to incorporate electronic percussion into their setups.
“There’s never been an ultra-compact multi-pad instrument like the PercPad before,” Dan Radin, Product Manager, Alesis.
Drummers can mount the PercPad on a standard snare drum stand or mount it to stands and racks using the Module Mount, sold separately.
Users can easily tune and edit sounds, assigning them to any of the four pads or to the kick input. They can also expand their sound pallete using the PercPad’s MIDI output, enabling them to perform with the sounds from any MIDI sound module or software on Mac or PC. Drummers can also use the PercPad with virtually any switch or velocity-sensitive kick trigger or pad including Alesis’ DMPad and RealHead Kick Pads.
