Compact, quiet, quick to set up, with true, natural sound, the Alesis DM8 USB Kit brings quality to drummers and studios. Whether you need quiet practice, tracking quickly into software, or fast on-stage setup, the DM8 USB Kit is a perfect choice.
The Alesis DM8 USB Kit features the barrier-shattering DM8 high-definition drum module with Dynamic Articulation. Our latest drum module in a line now spanning 20 years, the DM8 builds on the success of the top-of-the-line DM10. The DM8 shares the DM10s essential architecture, including playback of genuine recordings of real drums and cymbals and advanced Dynamic Articulation multi-samples.
You'll find the DM8 to be packed with over 750 first-call studio and live drums and cymbals, dozens of play-along tracks, and an advanced metronome for practice and performance. The DM8 features professional audio and trigger inputs and outputs including USB MIDI for expansive flexibility and connection to a wide range of sounds and controllers.
It's an ultra-compact module, which means integrating components of the DM8 USB Kit – or the entire setup – into acoustic drum setups and percussion rigs is easy and comfortable. Imagine adding electronic, percussion and rare, ethnic sounds without giving up the organic, primal power of an acoustic set. Never before has so much power been offered in a drum module this compact, at such an affordable price.
Whether you want to practice late night, or just keep the studio noise down, the rubberized pads of the DM8 USB Kit keep the acoustic noise down, while still giving you the ability to crank it up!
The Alesis DM8 USB Kit features a dual-zone snare, three toms, and a rugged kick pad. You can use virtually any single or double kick pedal for the pedal feel you prefer. The snare and tom pads mount on standard 10.5mm L-rods with low-slip, knurled mounting surfaces. The DM8 USB Kit comes with a compact 8-inch Hi-Hat with continuous-control pedal, a 12-inch Crash with choke, and a large 14-inch dual-zone Ride.
Everyone knows it can be tough to be seen on stage when youre a drummer. Youre in the back, usually with no lights. And forget about being able to dance. Thats why our designers took great pains to make the DM8 USB Kit look as great as it feels and sounds. Youll notice the sleek lines of the DM8, bathed in Raw Aluminum painted finish, which just might match your MacBook Pro, iPad, iPod, or iPhone.
Drummers know that hardware can make or break a kit. But whats ideal for tour – oversized, overweight stands – arent necessary in the studio, where space can be at a premium. Thats why we designed the DM8 USB Kits DMRack to take up minimal space yet offer stability, durability, and total position flexibility.
This rugged, four-post rack features 1 1/2-inch metal tubes for universal compatibility and sturdiness. The clamps on the DMRack adjust with large wingscrews for easy, tool-less adjustments with no drumkey needed. Mini-boom cymbal arms help get your cymbals right where you want them.
~SET ON UP~
Besides size and noise, one of the requests we hear the most from drummers is that they hate building a rack from scratch. Thats why the DMRack comes pre-assembled in the box. We love to listen to what drummers have to say, and were happy to help save time and effort getting the kit from the boxes to read-to-play!
Also included in the package is the Alesis DMPhones, which are great-sounding headphones ideal for studio and electronic drummers. They employ a comfortable, closed–cup design for great isolation from outside noise so drummers dont have to crank the volume up to 11. Pound away and still keep the volume at a healthy level so you can play longer without risking hearing damage.
The Alesis DM Phones are the first headphones designed specifically for the electronic drummer. Their sleek, piano black finish and minimal size ensures visually unobtrusive appearance onstage. The audience will be riveted to your playing –- not the gigantic headphones you're wearing! VMInnovations is an authorized Alesis dealer that sells new, warranted products!
