Whether you're looking for a silent way to practice or a MIDI-ready electronic drum kit for your studio, the Alesis Nitro drum set is an excellent choice. For starters, this electronic kit covers the equivalent of a full 5-piece drum set, with quality pads for the kick, snare, and toms, a collection of three cymbals, a stand, and both hi-hat and kick pedals. Put it all together with the Nitro drum module, and you can rock out with 40 killer drum kits or build your own from 385 excellent drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds.
The Alesis Nitro drum module offers the essential sounds Music Experience drummers look for in any quality controller. For starters, you get 40 excellent drum kits right out of the box, covering classic acoustic favorites, modern electronic beat machines, exotic percussion rigs, and more. You can also assemble your own drum kits from the 385 excellent onboard sounds. Rock out to 60 play-along tracks, plug in your media player and fire up your favorite tunes, or just jam to the metronome. If you want to connect to your DAW or other sound module, your choice of USB or traditional MIDI I/O makes it easy to connect to your other music gear.
The Alesis Nitro may be a back-to-basics electronic drum kit, but it still offers an amazing range of expression, thanks to its full set of quality pads. A dual-zone 8" snare lets you shift between standard strokes and rim shots naturally, while a crash cymbal pad with onboard choke adds another vital dynamic to your performance. Add to that a smooth hi-hat cymbal controller pedal, and you'll find it easy to adjust to this electric drum set.
At Music Experience, we love it when a complex product such as a full electronic drum kit comes with no surprises. That's why we appreciate the Nitro kit so much.
