Keith McMillen Instruments has announced availability of the production version of BopPad, a USB-powered expressive electronic pad controller for drummers, percussionists, and producers.
BopPad gives you accurate hit detection (with latency under 3ms), velocity, continuous radius and pressure. Four independently programmable zones output MIDI notes, velocity, pitch bend, pressure and location CCs.
BopPad has an extremely wide dynamic range and measures strike velocity from the softest hand drumming to the most brutal percussive assault. A robust tuned elastomer surface covers a 10" circle of patented Smart Fabric Sensor Technology to give you traditional feel and a new dimension of expressivity.
BopPad can also operate as a conventional practice pad with a realistic feel and portable, lightweight design.
With BopPad you can bring a new range of sonic possibility to your drum set, trigger samples, sound effects, pads and chords. Unleash your creativity by playing your software instruments and synthesizers in a whole new way. So portable you can bring it everywhere and never miss a beat when inspiration strikes.
BopPad carries an MSRP of $199.00 USD and is available to purchase from any authorised Keith McMillen Instruments dealer or directly from Keith McMillen Instruments.
