The Alesis Strike MultiPad has been a breath of fresh air in the world of samplepads, and firmware update v1.3 continues to bring the very best to the Strike MultiPad community.

The key strength of the Alesis Strike MultiPad lies in its exceptional customisability and standalone capabilities. With built-in sample recorder, editor, and five effects processors, you can capture, perform and loop your recordings at the click of a button.

It also features masses of onboard memory, an intuitive interface, and external trigger connectivity - making the MultiPad one of the most capable and professional samplepads on the market.

New for June 2020, Alesis has made Strike MultiPad even better with the v1.3 update.

What's new with MultiPad v1.3?

  1. Sample Manager - control and organise your samples easier.
  2. Metronome - improved metronome usability and options.
  3. Save/Load - never lose your hard work with new functionality.

Sample Manager

Take total command of your sample library. Alesis has constantly listened to its community of users, and v1.3 brings a new Sample Manager to assist with your sound organisation.

You can now browse, play, and delete any samples saved to Strike MultiPad’s internal storage, as well as export them from internal storage to an external USB device.

Enhanced Metronome Settings

For some, the correct metronome can be the difference between the perfect show and a total disaster. MultiPad 1.3 now allows you to set the metronome to automatically turn on when you hit a pad that is set to Loop mode or Alternate playback mode.

If you hit the same pad again, or if the sound ends, the metronome will restart from Beat 1 whenever it is turned on - either by the Start Click feature or by pressing the Metronome button. With the MultiPad’s bright screens and durable controls, it is easy to keep your cool. Just look, press, and away you go!

Save/Load User Kits with Samples

You are in the middle of creating the sound you want. You’ve been working for hours, tweaking the on-board effects until they’re just right… but then you switch kits and forget to save!

With v1.3 firmware, you can now save and load User Kits with every sample used – perfect for creating a complete backup of the User Bank, which can then be used on another Alesis Strike MultiPad.
