Alesis DM Dock Premium Drum Interface

Transform your iPad into a full-color, multi-touch-surface drum module. Meet the must-have hardware for today's electronic drummer. The Alesis DM Dock allows you to harness the power of your iPad to create a totally intuitive, customizable, and world-class drum interface. Simply slide in your iPad, attach the 30-pin or Lightning dock connector, and snap the locking door into position. Your iPad is now safe and secure in a stage-ready package that offers unlimited multi-touch access to the iPad screen. The DM Dock delivers an amazing array of professional inputs, outputs, and hands-on controllers. The iPad offers wireless connectivity and access to a wealth of compatible drum apps -- including the DM Touch app, created by Alesis to make the most of the DM Dock. Together they offer a level of total control and integration that no other system can match.

Connect and Control

Make the DM Dock the centerpiece of your custom electronic drum setup. Use it with the impressive Alesis pads, or with nearly any other trigger pads. The twelve trigger pad inputs are equipped with 1/4" TRS jacks, providing full support for dual-zone drum and cymbal pads, triple-zone ride and multi-choke cymbal pads -- even acoustic drum triggers. A dedicated 1/4" TRS hi-hat input provides compatibility with continuously variable controllers. There is even a customizable dual footswitch input that can be assigned in your software. DM Dock has what it takes to put together your own custom kit.

Share Your Sound

The DM Dock provides professional balanced 1/4" stereo outputs for connection to a sound system, recording console, or monitor amp for when you're ready to share your sound. The outputs are controlled from the master volume knob. A headphone output -- complete with an independent level knob -- allows for private practice at any hour. The USB port provides USB MIDI connectivity with your computer. Separate MIDI In and Out jacks allow your DM Dock to join forces with any MIDI-equipped drum machine, synthesizer, or audio gear.

Percussion Playground

Like the iPad itself, the DM Dock is only limited by your imagination. Benefitting from your iPad's Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirPlay, and 3G connectivity, the Alesis DM Dock puts unprecedented capabilities at your fingertips. Quickly change and enhance your drum kit at a moment's notice; switch to a snare drum or ride cymbal to suit a venue; apply reverb to suit a particular room's acoustics; or even create a kit to suit a last-minute gig. The DM Dock delivers the convenience, power and simplicity you've always wanted in a drum module, and works with virtually any iPad music app that permits external MIDI control -- especially the custom DM Touch App. Available at the App Store, DM Touch provides premium drum sounds from the leading software developer SONiVOX with easy drag-and-drop drum kit editing and the ability to connect to other iOS 7 apps using Inter-App Audio such as GarageBand and Cubasis. Plus, your DM Dock mounts to any stand or rack using the Alesis Module Mount (sold separately).

Customer Reviews
1.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Save Your Money!"
Overall: I bought the DM Dock to replace my Roland TD-11 module on my acoustic hybrid kit and was completely disappointed! Noticeable latency, a nasty hum for a full second after triggering, very buggy!!! Pretty much an unusable module. Many much better options out there.
Style of Music: Rock, classic rock, blues, funk and metal.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Do not buy"
Overall: I just received it in the mail today and I'm sending it back. It doesn't appear this was a successful product for Alesis as the DM Touch app hasn't been updated in over half a year with no response to known polyphony and latency issues and it even looks cheesy as it doesn't even have retina compatibility. On top of that out doesn't work with my roland hihat trigger. This was a horrible but, I felt the need to write a review because it seems not too many honest reviews on this product...
Style of Music: Gospel, contemporary, r&b

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "I've bought several items from zZounds. I had purchased a bass amp and had to return it because of a manufacturing defect. I received a return slip and shipped it back with no problems. The shipping on a bass combo amp isn't cheap! I've even used the online chat to discuss equipment and actually talked to a bass player that gave some great recommendations on filling out the total sound of my rig. zZounds rocks and will be my exclusive gear store!"
