Compact E-drum Module w/Expressive Drums and Cymbals
The aD5's five full drum kits (expandable) are sampled from real drums and cymbals in a real acoustic space for a playing experience that feels close to the real thing. Expressive, dynamic, and realistic, the ATV aD5 drum module stands at only 8" x 6" x 3" and is easy to throw in a gig bag or backpack for touring and travel convenience. A multi-trigger input with dual 1/4" aux inputs makes for easy connectivity of all your multi-zone pads, and dual 1/4" outputs give you a natural pre-mixed stereo drum sound you can feed directly into a soundboard or recording interface.

Convincing cymbal response for an authentic playing experience
The bottleneck in most electronic drum setups today is the cymbals. It's just hard to re-create the delicate response and harmonic interaction that comes from hitting real wood on bronze. But Sweetwater drummers are pleased to report that the ATV aD5's cymbals are some of the most convincing we've played: pumped hi-hats, choked crashes, and ping-y rides all have the characteristics of real cymbals in a real room for an authentic performance that won't wear on you or your audience's ears.
