Comments about Alesis Performance Percussion Pad:

Bought this product to supplement a drummer for some songs that we have. We are a metal band, but this worked for a little while. First off, after less than a month, the snare pad became unresponsive. I feel like I have to abuse the pad to get it to respond, terrible situation. Also, the velocity sensitivity is ok, but really not that great, buzzes still sound pretty terrible. Selection is not very good, over 100 different sounds, but that includes EVERYTHING! Like 10 different snares, bass drums, crash, splash, everything, and most of the sounds aren't very realistic or good. Overall, I'd say stay away from this thing, pretty much became a [$] dust collector in my studio.

      Comments about Alesis Performance Percussion Pad:

      The sounds off the Boss DR Rythm sounded better and balanced. The kick kicks and the high hat you can hear clearly. I used an old cheapy Yamaha 8 pad machine as the controller. Because there's no MIDI in only MIDI out you cannot use it as a controller to other drum sources.
