  • Alesis DM5 18 bit drum module - any good?

    Got the chance to buy one of these at a knock down price.

    Anyone got any experiance of these modules? I've heard the sounds are a bit dated, but at least they have 12 inputs

      I have a DM5 that was my first module. I use it these days as an expansion to my TD-12 via MIDI. If that is what you are using it for, it's all good. I wouldn't use it for a primary because, as you said, the sounds are dated and it only supports single trigger pads....at least via one input.

        Another previous DM5 owner here. The newer modules do smoke it in terms of sounds and features. But remember it was the king of its day. I recorded an entire CD with it. As a unit to mess around with, it ain't bad. But if you get hooked on eDrumming, you will ditch this unit fast.
