A Superior Electronic Drumming Experience
Drummers know that mesh drumheads offer the most natural feeling playing experience on an electronic kit. The Command Mesh Special Edition features large pads with tightly woven mesh drumheads for maximum playability. The 10” snare and 8” tom pads are all dual-zone, which means you get two different sounds per pad – one sound on the mesh head and another on the rim. You can use this to perform rim-shots or to program additional percussion sounds around the kit which can enhance your performances. The 8” mesh kick drum pad is built to last, with a large surface area that works great with the included kick pedal but also easily fits a double pedal if that’s your style. For cymbals there’s a 10” crash with choke, a 10” ride with choke, and a 10” hi-hat that includes an expressive foot control pedal.
Command Advanced Drum Module
The Command Advanced Drum Module has all the features a drummer needs to sound great, starting with the sounds. There are 74 kits (54 factory + 20 user) and 671 sounds that span a variety of genres and styles. Many of the sounds are also multi-sampled for more natural playability. Instead of one sound that gets louder or softer depending on how hard you hit the drum pad, you’ll hear slight variations in each hit, just like on an actual drum. This means that more nuanced playing will shine through without the risk of sounding artificial and drum rolls will sound natural.
Have a favorite drum sound that you’d like to use? The Command Advanced Drum Module makes it possible to add your own drum samples via USB so that you can create your own unique kits. You can record your performances directly on the module too, with up to 5 internal tracks or 99 with a USB thumb drive. Still need more flexibility? The convenient USB/MIDI connection allows you to connect the module to a computer for use with your favorite VST or DAW for endless creative possibilities.
High-Quality Hardware and Accessories
The Command Mesh Special Edition includes everything you need to start playing drums right away – a cable snake, drum sticks, and drum key are all included. There’s also a high-quality single-beater Alesis kick pedal, and an expressive hi-hat control pedal. The drum pads, cymbals, and module all mount to a four-post rack that stands firm no matter how hard you play. You can even fold the rack up for easy storage – perfect for bedrooms, dorms, studios, or any other area where space is limited.
