USB Studio Drum Kit

Five-Piece USB Drum Set


Program and track killer drums.

The USB Studio Drum Kit enables drummers and studios to track drum performances with MIDI software and hardware sound modules. This USB/MIDI drum set features dual-zone RealHead drum pads, low-noise DMPad Cymbals, and a compact, studio-friendly StealthRack drum rack. Harness the powerful processor in your computer to create incomparably realistic electronic drum tracks.

The USB Studio Drum Kit harnesses your Mac or PC's processing power, enabling you to create incredibly realistic and incomparably flexible drum performances. You can track in a live or pieced-together drum track and change the sound later, easily with the USB Studio Drum Kit. The true touch of real, tunable, mylar drum heads, combined with low-noise DMPad Cymbals, creates an acoustic-feeling, great-sounding drumming experience.

USB/MIDI FOR HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE

Just plug the kit's Trigger|iO interface into your Mac or PC's USB port, load up your sequencing, recording, or virtual instrument software, and you're ready to play. Because the USB Studio Drum Kit is MIDI compatible, you can track a performance, and then go back afterward and tweak your sounds. Try that with acoustic drums!

The USB Studio Drum Kit also opens up a new world of software including BFD, Toontrack, and Reason to drummers and producers looking for realistic drum performances.

ADVANCED DRUM PADS

The USB Studio Drum Kit's acoustic-feeling RealHead drum pads are built around 8” mylar drumheads and acoustic-dampening foam for quiet response. The snare and tom pads are dual-zone, enabling rimshot or rim-click sounds on the snare and additional sounds such as wind chimes, cymbals, gongs, and cowbells on the tom rims.

The drumheads can be replaced with any model you choose from any manufacturer. The heads are tunable with a standard drum key for adjustable tension and feel. The triple-flanged counterhoops are covered in removable, sound-reducing rubber sleeves, which further cut acoustic noise.

The USB Studio Drum Kit includes a self-standing RealHead Kick Pad with stand, to which any model of single or double-bass-drum pedal can be attached. The kick pad also features a tunable, 8” mylar playing surface.

CYMBALS MADE FOR THE STUDIO

The USB Studio Drum Kit includes a set of low-noise DMPad Cymbals. The kit includes a DMPad Hi-Hat Cymbal, a DMPad Crash Cymbal, and a dual-zone DMPad Ride Cymbal. DMPad Cymbals provide a rubberized playing surface for a great balance between natural cymbal feel and low stick-on-pad sound. The Crash and Ride feature large choke triggers on the undersides for accurate cymbal control. The DMPad Hi-Hat Cymbal and RealHat Pedal give you continuously variable control from wide open to tightly closed.

STEALTHRACK AND HARDWARE

The fully adjustable, compact StealthRack is built of 1 1/2" metal tubing, which is standard throughout the drum industry. It's easy to expand the USB Studio Drum Kit with any manufacturer's clamps and mounts. All necessary clamps, professional 1/4" cables, and mounting hardware are included. All clamps adjust with the included drum key. All of the hardware on the USB Pro Drum Kit is designed for sure grip and extensive adjustability.

Track the most realistic MIDI drum performances possible. Realistic feel meets sonic and creative flexibility in the USB Studio Drum Kit.
