A new sound, a new feel, and a completely new e-drumming experience. With the Pearl e/Merge MDL-1 Module, Powered by KORG, you have everything you need to get performing right at your fingertips. Thanks to Wave Trigger Technology and PUREtouch, Pearl delivers an electronic drum set with a natural feel and presence.

e/Merge MDL-1 Module Powered by KORG
The e/MERGE MDL1 sound module features a newly designed operating system developed by KORG that features dual high-performance processors that easily handle the Wave Trigger Technology of blending larger sound files from separate sources. The high-powered CPU provides accurate trigger response for natural playability. The 16 GB large capacity memory stores 35 preconfigured drum sets with space for 50 additional user-built kits. The sound library consists of Pearl drum sets newly recorded at a world-class Nashville studio and blended with a deep selection of electronics, modern digital and beat machines from the extensive KORG sound vault.

Wave Trigger Technology
Wave Trigger Technology uses parallel processing of your character and your sound and seamlessly layers it with high definition samples to infinitely color the sound produced. WTT began with KORG's Wave Drum and KORG's engineers developed a new algorithm designed to achieve maximum performance response. Each strike of the drum is captured by two separate sound sources. The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) audio sensor captures the initial strike and head response simultaneously as the second sensor triggers the PCM (Pulse Code modulation) sound file.

PUREtouch Electronic Pad System
The PUREtouch Pad System walks the finest line between the natural feel of an acoustic drum and the response of an electric pad. e/MERGE features real size pads (14" snare, 10", 12" & 14" toms and 18" x 12" bass drum) along with an 18" three zone Ride, 15" two zone Crash and 14" Hi-hats.
