MV
Pretty noisy for normal drumsticks.
Miro V. 31.08.2020
After some tweaking I finally got the sensitivity where I wanted. When playing at my home studio I really don't want to bang the pads like when playing them live so the sensitivity was sub-part sometimes. Meaning that it didn't register all my hits that clearly were ones since I have an Electronic Drumset as well and it's much much more sensitive when it comes to hits. The preset sounds are not that great, but with a memory card you can add 10 more or just use it as a MIDI Controller and you have all the sounds in the world. When you go live, just take those sounds with you on a memory card and voilá - you're CPU free in a live situation which is always nice and reduces the amount of stress one might have when you need to get your stuff done in ungodly short amount of times sometimes. This thing I can trust - just turn it on, plug in audio L+R, choose a kit, set the volume and start playing. Master clock can also be used if needed which is great with a lot of electronic controllers and synths + drum machines we are using in live situations. Maybe even more than we should. :)

I also like the extra trigger inputs for a kick, hi-hat, and two more pads which I do own and after testing the whole setup it felt like I was playing a drum set standing up. Also learning a song or a set is as easy as it gets since you can just stick audio in with a click and backing tracks or the in-ear mix you are going to use, just play along and listen it afterwards. Instant feedback, faster learning.

Alesis Samplepad Pro personal review
Anonymous 06.04.2016
sample pads are becoming a powerful part of a percussionists arsenal, offering a massive range of sounds all packed into a tiny box. The Alesis samplepad pro is an affordable option that allows you to take your first steps into the world of sample pads.

to date I have owned it approximately a month. when I first received the pad I encountered some quality issues by the fantastic team at thomann quickly resolved them.

the pad has some fantastic features including "mute groups" that allow for realistic play similar to that of a hihat for example. the sound quality in particular of the 200 pre loaded sample sounds is truly magnificent. the range of sample sounds included travels all the way from afro cuban to modern electronic.

a feature that makes the alesis samplepad pro truly versatile is its compatibility with a simple SD card. you can quickly and easly transfer audio files from an SD card straight to the pad. I have in cooperated my singers vocals into the pad to allow me loop her voice during gigs.

the only negatives I have to say about the alesis samplepad pro is the quality of its built in loop interface. you can loop an individual pad which is very effective but the options for the loops play back like bpm are poor.

Over all a very good product, opens up a vast new range of possibilities and is worth the money

Bought for testint sampling and DAW usage
AnoNickmous 11.03.2021
PROs: This product is really great if you want to try out sampling-MIDI-DAW opportunities. It has the possibility to play virtual instruments (with a notebook, DAW, sound card of course), upload sample packs to memory card, plug in additional drum pads, switches, pedals, etc. It is really great to test if bringing electronis in to your play is the route you want to take. If yes, you should sell this and buy a better product (see cons below), if not, sell it, and you lost only minimal money.

CONs: The top two pad is not playable, it is just good for programmed stuff like all mute, etc. The remaining six is okay, but you have to tweak with the sensitivity. Loading samples is awful slow, you don't want to change it in the middle of a song. One of the knobs in front shows wear after light usage less than one year.

SUM: To see if bringing electronics to drumming, this is perfect, it is really versatile, and you can do everything what more expensive stuff provide - in a less perfect way.

Exactly what I need!
JustinC 09.10.2019
I bought the Alesis Samplepad to trigger home made loops or effects during live performances with various bands. I needed something that isnt hooked to any computer or laptop in order to do this and I got exactly what I needed. Very easy to work with your own sounds via the SD card (which of course is not provided).
The time in which the sounds from the SD card are loaded when you switch banks are not the smallest, but it didnt prove a problem during life performances between songs. If you have to change banks during a song...well, that can prove to be tricky (3 to 8 seconds depending on the size of your files)
All in all, its easy to work with, easy to navigate through the menu and its well built. The pads feel good when hit with a drum stick, if you wanna hit them with hands or fingers, you might have to make sure that you turn their sensitivity high from the menu
