Closer to acoustic drums than others

ststst, 07.02.2018
This set is really really good if you are looking for a set that feels pretty close to the real thing. The mesh heads are very nice - a bit bouncy but you can loosen them up and get good results.
Bass drum feels great. Overall volume of the kit is quite low, lower than I expected. Cymbals are very, very real, especially the hihat, but only if you set them up properly and adjust your technique a bit.
The module is very plug-and play, with few good kits, although in their store you can get even better ones.
Everything feels sturdy, no double triggering or mistriggering at any point. Ressponds to dynamics perfectly.
One could wish for more in/out ports, but it seems that an expansion is on its way.

Very good plug and play set!

JanekKB, 13.02.2018
I've been on the set for about a month now and I'm very happy overall. The pads look good, the trigger results are flawless, cross talk is not an issue (after completing the corresponding wizards in the module), and you feel like you're sitting in front of a real drum set, which is absolutely great. The pads are high quality, especially the cymbal pads are of the playability at the top with it. It also has to mention the hihat, which works so mediocre on many cheap and medium-sized sets (Alesis Strike pro for example, priced below, of course). The ATV Hihat triggers super well, there are many layers between closed and completely open, the optical (!) Sensor, which is installed in the Hihat Control, does its job. ATV does not need to hide from Roland or Drumtec products with these pads.

Overall, the pads are so impeccable, of course, you have to say that the pads bring a certain volume of their own, which should be clear in the boiler sizes. Nevertheless, the set with reasonably tolerant neighbors can also play in a rental apartment (not on the ground floor).


Here is some more information about the module: The module does not have that many sounds, BUT: the sounds that the module brings are of the highest quality. What is particularly fun is to know which cymbals / drums you play, so kettle of Ludwig, DW, and many others and cymbals of Zildijan, Paiste, Sabian and others. That makes a lot of difference to the real feeling. ATV also offers on its website (ATV Soundstore) more sounds for purchase, which can then be imported to the module. I think this idea is very good, but as a tip should be said that the registration there does not work with all the mail addresses (@ gmx does not work, @ gmail worked). I also played the Roland TD 50 before buying this set, but in my opinion the sound quality of this module is much higher, despite the lower price.

Only the Pearl Mimic Pro would be a module, which probably still beats this module, especially in terms of features. The ad5 module does not have a lot of features, sound-wise you can only change the volume and pan of the sounds, pitch-shift, equalizer or ambience settings are not on board. While this is a limiting factor, the sounds are so good by nature that it does not matter much. Another feature that I think is missing is the ability to control the volume of the audio input (at least I have not found this setting anywhere yet).

Last: There is nothing wrong with the hardware. Totally alright, do what it should.

Summary:

pros:

+ high quality boilers and pool pads
+ very high sound quality, real
+ more sounds from the ATV Soundstore
+ plug and play
+ Price / Performance (compared to drumtec, Roland)

cons

- few features in the module
- Internal volume of the pads

All in all a high-end set that you do not have to hide with.
