Mesh style drum pads are the future of electronic drums, after decades of hard rubber pads that feel nothing like a real drum head, we now have the innovation of mesh head style drum pads. What mesh heads do that the solid rubber pads cannot is provide you with a realistic feel of conventional drum heads that bounce and absorb the vibration of the drum head, this is an incredible break through in the world of electronic drums where sometimes special sticks had to be used to counter the painful hard bounce of standard hard rubber drum pads.
The Alesis Command Sound/Control module includes USB midi connectivity this is extremely useful for today’s world of software music production. With usb midi connectivity you can simple plug in your drum set to a computer’s USB port and control top quality music software like Propeller head Reason or Ableton live in not just conventional drum control ways but in percussive and other strange creative ways to produce unique music. You can also use the USB midi capability to control software based VST drum sound software that has the ability to play realistic drum kits which contain thousands of velocity layered samples which are the very best in electronic drum sounds.
Load your own sounds
With the USB sound port on the Alesis Command Sound/Control module you can take wave file samples from your computer or other sources and load them on the sound module to be played by your various drum pads, while this is not as high quality as the velocity layered sounds in the sound module, you can get very creative and unique configurations by loading samples on to the drum pads you wish to use in this custom way.
