Electric kit response. Is it the pads or the brain?

Postby twjewett » Fri Aug 07, 2009 11:49 am

Hi. I've just bought myself an Alesis DM5 Pro which I am reasonably happy with. I've played on my friends Roland TD3-KW and the response and sensitivity of the kit seems much closer to an acoustic kit. I feel with my Alesis kit that a lot of time I'm worrying about the sample triggering properly when I should be worrying about what I am playing. I was wondering whether this was due to the quality of the pads that i'm hitting or the brain itself that outputs the sound?

Thanks, Thomas

Could be both. There is a sensitivity setting in the module but if the sensors in the pad are bad, they can affect it too.
