A Four-Pad Electronic Drum Kit That Fits Any Snare Stand

The Alesis SamplePad Multi-Pad Sample Drum Instrument is a fully customizable compact and portable electric drum kit. It offers four large, velocity-sensitive sample pads with which you can play and drum sound -- or any sample -- you want.

25 Built-in Sounds -- Plus an SD Card Slot for Your Own Sounds

Alesis SamplePad comes preloaded with 25 acoustic and electronic drum sounds which have been selected to allow you to play virtually any style of today's music. What's more, the SamplePad is equipped with an SD card slot which allows you to load any audio sample from your own library. Just load the sample from the docked SD card, tweak the sample's tone and reverb parameters to your liking, and load it to one of the four sample pads.

Integrates With Any Drum Setup

A real strength of the SamplePad is that its compact form factor allows it to easily integrate into your existing stage or studio drum setup. Just set the unit on a table or fit it in any standard snare drum stand or rack mount. Or set the unit on a stand and connect an external foot pedal, and the SamplePad instantly becomes a five-piece electric drum kit with a bass kick!

Product Description

Customize your drum or percussion setup by adding your own unique sounds with the Alesis SamplePad. Never before has adding your own sounds to your drumset or percussion rig been this easy.

The SamplePad is a compact four-pad instrument that gives you access to a limitless palette of sounds. With 25 percussion and electronic drum sounds built in, and the ability to load any sounds you like using a standard SD card, the SamplePad put the sounds you need on its great-feeling pads. Add a external trigger input for a trigger or switch pedal and the ability to mount on virtually any snare stand or rack, and the SamplePad makes expanding your setup easy and convenient.

Small Size Fits All

The SamplePad will fit almost anywhere, so it's perfect for drummers and other instrumentalists who want to incorporate sampled sounds into their setups. It's just like adding another drum to your rig: mount the SamplePad on a standard snare drum stand or connect it to any stand or rack using the Alesis Module Mount (sold separately). For studio use, the SamplePad can simply be placed on a tabletop.

The SamplePad is just the opposite of cumbersome, hard to use multi-percussion units; it's designed to be small, self-contained and easy to use, offering just what you need and nothing you don't. It gives you access to hundreds of your own sounds, plus 25 in-demand percussion and electronic drum sounds, while adding virtually nothing to your set-up time.

Essential Sounds

The SamplePad comes equipped with a collection of acoustic and electronic drum and percussion sounds that are perfectly suited to the needs of drummers and percussionists. These sounds are standards in any drummers toolbox, and you can mix and match them with your own samples, assigning each to the pad you choose or to the kick input. You'll find ready-to-play acoustic and electronic drums and percussion from Latin America and Asia that are perfect for complimenting your drums.

Connect the SamplePad to an amplifier, PA or recording system using its standard dual 1/4-inch outputs, and monitor on your favorite headphones. The kick input works with most pads and triggers including the DMPad and RealHead Kick Pads.

Clutterless Capability

With the SamplePad's easy-to-use interface, you won't be rifling through endless submenus and categories to find the sound your looking for. Simply strike the pad you want to change, dial to the sound you want and you're done. If you discover a great combination of sounds you want to keep together, simply designate it as a kit and the SamplePad will save it for easy recall anytime you want.

Your set. Your Sounds. Give your kit some personality with the SamplePad, only from Alesis.

Features:

- Add any sound sample to your drum or percussion setup via standard SD card (sold separately)
- Built-in library of the 25 most-commonly requested percussion and electronic drum sounds

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Alesis samplepad "
Overall: So I bought the sample pad for my band to use for our background tracks and 808 samples and we were all amazed on how easy it was to trigger every thing instead of using an ipod like how we use to. We run the left channel to our subs for the 808 and the right channel is for our backing tracks that go to foh.
Style of Music: Death Metal, Hardcore, Beatdown, blues, rock.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
