Key Info
The Alesis DM8 USB Kit is compact, quiet, quick to set up, with true, natural sound, featuring the DM8 high-definition drum module.

The Alesis DM8 USB Kit brings Alesis quality to drummers and studios. Whether you need quiet practice, tracking quickly into software, or fast on-stage setup, the DM8 USB Kit is a perfect choice.


TRUE SOUND
The Alesis DM8USB Kit features the barrier-shattering DM8 high-definition drum module with Dynamic Articulation. The latest drum module in a line now spanning 20 years, the DM8 builds on the success of the top-of-the-line DM10. The DM8 shares the DM10’s essential architecture, including playback of genuine recordings of real drums and cymbals and advanced Dynamic Articulation multi-samples.


You'll find the DM8 to be packed with over 750 first-call studio and live drums and cymbals, dozens of play-along tracks, and an advanced metronome for practice and performance. The DM8 features professional audio and trigger inputs and outputs including USB MIDI for expansive flexibility and connection to a wide range of sounds and controllers.


It's an ultra-compact module, which means integrating components of the DM8 USB Kit or the entire setup into acoustic drum setups and percussion rigs is easy and comfortable. Imagine adding electronic, percussion and rare, ethnic sounds without giving up the organic, primal power of an acoustic set.


QUIET DOWN
Whether you want to practice late night, or just keep the studio noise down, the rubberized pads of the DM8 USB Kit keep the acoustic noise down, while still giving you the ability to crank it up!


The DM8 USB Kit features a dual-zone snare, three toms, and a rugged kick pad. You can use virtually any single or double kick pedal for the pedal feel you prefer. The snare and tom pads mount on standard 10.5mm L-rods with low-slip, knurled mounting surfaces. The DM8 USB Kit comes with a compact 8-inch Hi-Hat with continuous-control pedal, a 12-inch Crash with choke, and a large 14-inch dual-zone Ride with choke.


GREAT LOOKS
Everyone knows it can be tough to be seen on stage when you’re a drummer. You’re in the back, usually with no lights. And forget about being able to dance. That’s why our designers took great pains to make the DM8 USB Kit look as great as it feels and sounds. You’ll notice the sleek lines of the DM8, bathed in Raw Aluminum painted finish, which just might match your MacBook Pro, iPad, iPod, or iPhone.


COMPACT CONFIGURATION

Drummers know that hardware can make or break a kit. But what’s ideal for tour oversized, overweight stands aren’t necessary in the studio, where space can be at a premium. That’s why we designed the DM8 USB Kit’s DMRack to take up minimal space yet offer stability, durability, and total position flexibility.


This rugged, four-post rack features 1 1/2-inch metal tubes for universal compatibility and sturdiness. The clamps on the DMRack adjust with large wingscrews for easy, tool-less adjustments with no drumkey needed. Mini-boom cymbal arms help get your cymbals right where you want them.


SET ON UP
Besides size and noise, one of the requests we hear the most from drummers is that they hate building a rack from scratch. That’s why the DMRack comes pre-assembled in the box. We love to listen to what drummers have to say, and we’re happy to help save time and effort getting the kit from the boxes to read-to-play!
