The Alesis Nitro is a full-blown 8-piece electronic drum kit that is changing the game for electronic drums. Out of the box it comes with three dynamic 8" tom pads, an 8" dual-zone snare drum pad, a kick drum pad, three 10” cymbal pads, and all the hardware you need to get behind the kit, including a bass drum and hi-hat pedal. The premium rubber pads are designed to give the drummer maximum response and feel while playing - the rebound feels like you are hitting a real drumhead! For instance, the snare has great dynamic response and dual-triggered zones, which enable it to pick up the detailed intricacies of your playing. The three cymbal pads are also interactive, allowing the crash cymbal to be choked, and hi-hats splashed by foot. The overall sound quality of the Nitro is incredibly realistic and produces amazing recreations of acoustic drums.
The Alesis Nitro includes the Nitro electronic drum module. As the brains of the kit, the module includes hundreds of percussion sounds, 40 different drum kits, and 60 play-along tracks - all editable and customizable to your specifications.
A Huge Library of Sounds
The Alesis Nitro module is loaded with sounds and features. The LCD screen allows for easy navigation through the kits and settings, while the drum and cymbal buttons are laid out like a traditional kit, making pad assignments quick and efficient. 40 classic and modern drum kits are pre-programmed into the Nitro module. All are editable and can be easily tweaked to create your own unique drum kits and sounds. With 385 drum and cymbal sounds, the possibilities are endless for customization on the Alesis Nitro.
The Alesis Nitro Electronic Drum Kit was designed to be a handy practice tool for drummers of all skill levels. Sixty play-along backing tracks allow you to jam with the band and hone your skills, while the built-in metronome is the holy grail for effective drum practicing. The module even has an advanced sequencer and a performance recorder allowing you to make and record your own tracks on the fly. The Nitro also makes MIDI connection quick and simple with its USB connection, or classic MIDI In and Outs so you can connect all your outboard MIDI gear. For quiet practice, plug right into the headphone jack or rock the house using the stereo out to amplify the drums through a PA system, amp or recording device. There is also a stereo input allowing you to play along to your personal music collection via CD or MP3 player.
