Alesis has announced the PerformancePad Pro, a high-end version of the PerformancePad multi-pad percussion instrument. Dan Radin, product manager for Alesis, told us

, "The PerformancePad Pro builds on the successful PerformancePad. Drummers love the layout and feel of the original, and this new version adds a new, larger sound library and powerful new features."


Drummers and percussionists can expand their setups or play standalone with the PerformancePad Pro. With eight velocity-sensitive drum pads, kick and hi-hat inputs and over 500 multi-sampled sounds with Dynamic Articulation™, the PerformancePad Pro is an all-in-one drum station. Drummers can mount the PerformancePad Pro on stands and racks using the Module Mount, sold separately, or they can play it tabletop.


The PerformancePad Pro contains the sequencing engine from Alesis' best-selling drum machines. This three-part sequencer enables drummers and instrumentalists to program drum, percussion and accompaniment parts for creating complete tracks or playing along with loops.

The PerformancePad Pro features a modern, high-definition sound set with acoustic and electronic drums, percussion, sound effects, bass and more. The PerformancePad Pro also contains powerful Alesis studio effects including Reverb, EQ and Compression for customizing sounds to perfection.

Drummers can also use the PerformancePad Pro as a MIDI controller for playing virtually any sound module, synth or software. Practicing and performance musicians can connect and mix in a music source via the PerformancePad Pro's input.
