Adding even greater realism to its arsenal of sounds, the new DM5 Electronic Drum Kit includes Alesis’ proprietary Dynamic Articulation™ feature. Dynamic Articulation enables the DM5’s drum sounds to respond to the force with which the pad is struck. This enables the various sounds to change volume, tone, and pitch in the same manner that an acoustic instrument’s timbre varies when played soft or loud. Combined with the DM5’s Random Sample feature, which brings new life to static tracks by realistically varying the sound of the drum as it is played, the new DM5 Electronic Drum Kit provides stunning realism and makes this drum/percussion controller system a remarkably expressive instrument.
No electronic drum kit is complete without a responsive set of pads that enable drummers to articulate their craft in musical fashion, and in this regard, the new DM5 Electronic Drum Kit excels. The DM5 Electronic Drum Kit includes pads for snare, two toms, kick drum, and hi-hat. The hi-hat is controlled with a foot pedal that attaches via the sound module and facilitates switching between open and closed sounds. Further, the kit includes two natural motion cymbal pads that make it easy to configure the kit with ride and crash cymbals. Combined with a rugged tubular rack system that supports the sound module and all pads—plus the necessary cables to interconnect the system—Alesis’ new DM5 Electronic Drum Kit is ready to rock.
The DM5 Electronic Drum Kit is a tremendously versatile percussion sound module and controller system that enables drummers of all levels to practice quietly via headphones or perform on stage with a great assortment of sounds. With an extremely competitive price point, this kit will appeal to a wide range of players.
