Product Description & Reviews
The Alesis SamplePad Pro is the all-in-one percussion instrument that knows no bounds. It comes with eight isolated and responsive pads and hundreds of professionally recorded in-demand sounds to get you going out of the box. But adding pads and pedals can transform your SamplePad Pro from a percussion powerhouse into a full-blown electronic drum kit for the on-the-go performer. It maintains full compatibility with all MIDI equipped pads, triggers, sequencers, and instruments. Plus, a direct USB connection to your computer and an SD card slot allows you to load an endless amount of your own custom sounds. SamplePad Pro is everything you're looking for in a pad-based instrument—and more. Note: SD/SDHC card and computer not included.

We recommend formatting your SD card to a FAT32 file system (if it is not already) and naming your sample files according to this format. Basically, this means: Do not use these characters: " * / \ : < > ? | Do not use spaces ,Limit your file name to 8 characters (excluding the file extension, ".WAV"). You can assign up to 48 MB worth of samples per kit (the sample library on your SD card can be larger, of course). Also, please note that a sample's size will be rounded up when loaded (e.g., a 2.1 MB sample on the SD card will be treated as a 3 MB sample when it is assigned to a pad). The max number of files that can be located in the root directory is 512. Box Contents SamplePad Pro Power Adapter User Guide Safety Instructions & Warranty Information Booklet
