The SamplePad 4 from Alesis is an all-in-one percussion, loop-playing, and sample-triggering instrument. Take advantage of this instrument’s USB-MIDI output to connect to your computer and access virtual instrument and recording software (not included). The SamplePad 4 comes with a power adapter, meaning you can get pounding and playing right out of the box.
This all-in-one instrument's 4 rubber pads are responsive to the touch, making it easy to personalize your percussion by how hard you hit them, while their backlit LED lighting gives you at-a-glance monitoring and fun, dynamic visuals that enhance your performing experience. The SamplePad 4’s intuitive layout also includes dual-zone trigger input and easy navigation so you can efficiently browse your kits and drag-and-drop samples using a USB connection to your computer—all without removing your SD card.
The SamplePad 4 comes with 10 preset kits and a built-in library of 25 percussion and electronic drum sounds that are the most commonly requested from Alesis’ customers. This versatile instrument also gives you the flexibility of loading samples from an SD card*, tuning, or adding reverb effects to your sounds.
*The SamplePad 4 accepts SD/SDHC cards up to 32GB (which allows you to store 89 user kits and 512 samples per card for nearly limitless creative potential!)
