This is more than a percussion pad, the Alesis Strike MultiPad is also a sampler, looper and audio interface. Alesis has launched the New Strike Multipad, which is a percussion pad with an arsenal of effects for the modern producer and drummer. A glance reveals that the Strike Multipad is stacked with 32GB of storage with over six GB of content – including loops, drums and percussion, and melodic instruments. The Strike Multipad also doubles up as a two-in/two-out USB audio/MIDI interface.
You can sample in various different ways – via USB, a microphone or any audio device you care to plug in. Editing can be done on the unit thanks to a 4.3-inch colour display. This can also be used to show the looper, which can be used to record your pad performances or external audio.
In terms of performance, the Strike Multipad features has nine velocity-sensitive pads with customisable RGB lights, and your sounds can be processed with three effects, one master effect, a compressor and an EQ. You can expand your setup via the external trigger and pedal inputs, external drum/cymbal triggers, a hi-hat pedal and two dual foot controls. The Strike Multipad also allows you to supersize your setup with external triggers and pedals: three external drum/cymbal triggers, two dual foot controls, and a hi-hat pedal.
The device ships an exclusive version of Pro Tools | First – Alesis Edition and Ableton Live 10 Lite.
