The Alesis DM10 Pro Kit is the first electronic drum set to combine the natural feel of real drum heads and real alloy cymbals with Alesis’ innovative Real Head drum pads and Surge cymbal pads. The real head drum pads have genuine tension adjustable Mylar heads that can be adjusted with a standard drum key. The DM10 Pro and the DM10 Studio kits include the new massive 10” dual zone snare and floor tom pads.
The Cymbal Pads
These electronic cymbals feel like acoustic cymbals because they are real alloy cymbals made like real acoustic cymbals. Each Surge cymbal multi-zone featuring a choke ability that brings a dynamic realism to the overall sound of the kit.
The brains of the operation for both the DM10 Pro Kit and the DM10 Studio Kit is the DM10 drum module. This powerful drum module features 12 trigger inputs and is equipped with a mixer so you can level you kit out on the fly or mix in an iPod or CD on an aux track to practice with. The DM10 drum module supports 64 voices of polyphony and is loaded with 1,047 uncompressed samples, 100 preset drum kits, and 75 preset sequencer patters as well as 25 user patterns which all can be overwritten. The DM10 drum module is the first electronic drum set module that offers unlimited expandability with the option to load addition sample packs via USB from top of the line sample libraries such as Ocean Way Drums, fxpansion, Inaudio, Sonic Reality, and Blue Jay Studios. In addition to the USB capabilities the DM10 module is equipped with a MIDI I/O interface so the module can be controlled with an external sequencer or be used as a MIDI percussion interface for other samplers and programs such as EZ Drummer and BFD.
The DM10 Pro Kit is perfect for percussionists who like get in many hours of practice but may lack the space to have a large acoustic drum in a bedroom. For your neighbors sake the DM10 Pro Kit can be monitored simply through headphones, a particularly handy feature for someone just starting out. Recording with the DM10 is easy and fun with the mixed line level outputs or for perfect drums every time the MIDI output can be used to record drums that can be edited to the last detail.
