Calling all Drummers! Alesis has announced the introduction of their new Strike MultiPad electronic
drum instrument, an incredibly capable and versatile device that far surpasses the performance and
creative potential of any previous electronic drum pad. Never before has such sheer percussive power
been built into a single unit or been so easy to play – redefine your kit, upgrade your sound and add a
sense of true, customisable individuality to your performance!
Alesis designed the Strike MultiPad around the drummer’s requirement to be able to sample, edit,
loop and perform in an unprecedentedly seamless manner. To that end, the MultiPad offers an
immense 7000+ 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). Capture every subtle
nuance of your performance - the nine velocity-sensitive pads have customisable RGB lights and are
easily configured for maximum playing convenience. Plus, the customisable 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 personalise 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” colour screen to make checking system status or
performing edits a snap. This kind of total percussive firepower is simply not available anywhere else,
even in multiple units.
