Very Glitchy: lots of Cross talk, volume is poor and two pads don't work anymore
I don't even have this thing a year and I really wouldn't recommend it. Save up another 200 bucks and and get more expensive ones on the market.
It doesn't feel like its all durable and heavy duty and the buttons make it so awkward to carry in a bag as they stick out either side.
The Cross talk is horrendous, I have installed the updates, I have turned down sensitivity, I have muted pads....You have to be very careful what sounds you put next to each other...I'm hitting top left and the lights for bottom right are coming on. I hit the top right and it might play a sound or another light might come on...depends.
So I used it about 3 times while playing small gigs as a kit to break up playing the Cajon. I just can't rely on it anymore....three gigs...
The internal sounds are OK but compared with sounds I load on they are so low and bad quality. I just use it now with my acoustic kit with a side snare pad for claps and effects. I have a pad over my floor tom for effects and a bass drum pad. I don't play the actual unit itself anymore....pointless.
It could be amazing and has potential to be amazing with all the features but its not as I can't trust it.
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
