Alesis PercPad Four-Pad Percussion Instrument Reviews

10/10

Simply amazing value for money drum pad midi controller

I received the percpad this morning with much anticipation. I read so many reviews, many positive but also quite a few outlining some of the less positive points with the perc pad. As a result I was kind of expecting it to be ok, but perhaps fall down on the midi output. I can only say I am overly impressed and amazed at what difference this baby has made to my DAW drum tracks!

First off brilliant service from Dolphin who delivered next day and at an amazing price. The PercPad is a breeze to use, you really don't need an instruction manual as its so intuitive. Unpack, plug the AC adaptor into a mains socket (yes its a standard 3 pin UK switched mode PSU) and initially I plugged a stereo 1/4 pair of jacks into the outs and tried the built in percussion sounds on my home amp stereo system. I used a cheap pair of drum sticks and was immediately impressed at how solid and sensitive the pads feel. Nice hard rubber, enough bounce to get some good flams and rolls but solid enough at the same time to achieve tight playing. The 25 built in sounds are pretty good, a variety of latin percussion sounds and electronic 80s simmon like drums. You can tune each sound and pad separately, pan it and even add a touch of reverb. Overall its impressive enough to add a few extra sounds to a standard drum kit. However the real excitement begins when you midi it up to your DAW and use something like Abbey Road virtual drums! I run the midi out into my Motif midi in and then back to the DAW via firewire (Logic Pro X). Latency is excellent using my Saffire Pro 24 audio interface and is barely noticeable at all. Playing the Abbey Road kits on the percpad is amazing, contrary to reviews I've read the sounds DO respond to velocity over midi and very well. You can get excellent dynamics via midi, not sure how many different levels the velocity is quantised into but its pretty good, especially considering the price. The interface of the percpad is a piece of cake to use, so its really easy to change the midinote numbers for each pad and kick switch to match sounds in your DAW. Just messing around I could easily feel the difference in my drum tracks. As well as sticks you can play the PercPad with your hands (as long as you play reasonably firmly) and in some ways I prefer to do so.
Definitely a winner and a much cheaper alternative to the Yamaha DTX multi 12 (about an eighth of the price!) if you just need a means of entering drum parts into a DAW without resorting to banging the keys of your synth to an early death!
Awesome, totally recommended to anyone!
