A Complete Setup
The Alesis Nitro Mesh features everything you need to make a complete electronic drum kit.

The Nitro drum module links everything together and features 40 different drum kit sounds with 60 built-in play-along tracks.
The dual-zone snare pad allows you to play those important rim-shots, while the trio of cymbals with choke-function (crash cymbal pad) lets you play with both a crash and ride cymbal setup, or indeed with any pairing you wish! The Nitro modules preset kits cover a wide range of genres from traditional acoustic kit sounds through to electronic and experimental kits.
Nitro Drum Sound Module
The Nitro module also allows you to tweak and edit any of the preset kits using 385 of the built-in drum, cymbal and percussion sounds. The 60 backing tracks allow you to sharpen your skills with a real musical backing, while the advanced sequencer, performance recorder and metronome are perfect practice tools - giving you useful tools and real-time audio feedback to develop your playing. A range of outputs (audio/headphone/MIDI/USB) enable you to connect to various audio and computer devices, letting you expand your drum system with virtual instruments and connect directly to audio playback devices or recorders.
