Great Drum Sounds!

Give the drummer some! Or give yourself some drummers. A whole box o' drummers. Sweetwater has got beats so strong you can't shake 'em loose, and you'll find some of the tastiest in the Alesis DM5. This drum sound processor packs more pounding than a herd of stampeding wildebeests! You get 540 knee-buckling, skin-shuddering drum sounds that can be assigned to any of the 21 programmable drumsets. A Random Sample feature means you don't get the same sound twice and you can keep the beats fresh. And don't worry about the sound. These samples are so close to the real deal, you won't believe it's not a drummer!
