NAMM 2010: Alesis launches DM10 Studio drum kit

Alesis DM10 Studio Electronic Drum Kit
Great deals on musical instruments

Using the successful sounds, feel and customisability that have made the DM10 Electronic Kit so popular, Alesis have launched the DM10 Studio Drum Kit.

The DM10 Studio Kit builds on the successful DM10 Pro Kit, bringing its incredible sounds, natural feel and customizability to even more drummers.

Based around the critically acclaimed DM10 drum module, the DM10 Studio Kit features Alesis? RealHead drum pads, DMPad Cymbals and StealthRack mounting system.

The DM10 sound module builds on Alesis? tradition of highly professional, great sounding drum modules.

The DM10 features an extensive factory sound set with breathtakingly natural sounds and the ability to load entirely new sound sets via USB from a Mac or PC.

Drummers will immediately notice the DM10 module?s outstanding sound quality.

This new drum sound module contains true drum, cymbal and percussion sounds built from uncompressed samples of classic studio drums and prized cymbals.

Drummers will find some of the most in-demand acoustic drum sounds from legendary drum brands, a huge arsenal of top producers' go-to snare drums, real American, Canadian, Chinese, and Turkish cymbals, and electronic beat-machine sounds that have fueled the biggest hit records.

Discerning drummers will notice that each sound is actually a series of different samples: multiple dynamic-level samples and articulations are all built in so as the drummer plays harder and softer, the drum or cymbal changes its timbre, not just its dynamics.

This engineered realism is known as Dynamic Articulation?, an Alesis exclusive.

Drummers can play with or without reverb for different room sounds and enjoy a wide variety of rimshots, rim clicks and different stick-placement sounds on the cymbals.

The DM10 Studio Kit will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers in February 2010.
