Alesis today announced the introduction of their new Strike MultiPad electronic drum instrument, a capable and versatile device that, according to the company, far surpasses the performance and creative potential of any previous electronic drum pad. It’s a bold claim, but the Strike MultiPad has some very interesting features (such as the built-in sampler and loop recorder) that might make it very appealing to drummers, producers, and beatmakers.
Here’s an introduction:
Let’s see what else the company told us…
Alesis designed the Strike MultiPad around the drummer’s requirement to be able to sample, edit, loop and perform in a seamless manner. To that end, the MultiPad offers an unprecedented 8000+ built-in sounds, 32GB of storage and the ability to record samples from any source (smartphone, mic, off the internet, via USB, from virtually any other audio device).
The nine velocity-sensitive pads have customizable RGB lights and are easily configured for maximum playing convenience. Plus, the customizable RGB lights under each pad guarantee that players will never miss a beat – no matter how dark or foggy the stage is.
There are five built-in effects processors and a Custom Effect Control, so players can really personalize their sounds/loops. Plus, there are multiple ins/outs with USB audio and MIDI interface, multiple external drum/cymbal triggers and an Alesis-exclusive 4.3” color screen to make checking system status or performing edits a snap.
