Alesis Strata Prime: The Ultimate Electronic Drum Set

By Stuart Williams | Published on March 19, 2024

Alesis has just unleashed its latest electronic drum set, the Strata Prime. This 10-piece powerhouse is not here to play games; it's here to redefine your drumming experience. Let's dive into the details:

The Prime Drum Module

The heart of the Strata Prime is the Prime drum module. Alesis made a bold move by incorporating the full BFD 3 library inside this module. Yes, you read that right – over 40GB of meticulously sampled drum sounds straight from BFD. These samples cover 75 core presets, offering multi-sampled, multi-microphone sounds playable across the pads without needing a computer. Whether you're performing live or practicing at home, this game-changer delivers.

Intuitive Touchscreen Control

The 10.1-inch color touchscreen display on the Prime module makes navigation a breeze. No more scrolling through endless text – just tap your way to your desired settings. Six rotary encoders provide fine-tuning options, while additional hardware controllers ensure precise adjustments.

Connectivity and Expandability

The Prime module offers a wealth of connectivity options, including 14 trigger inputs, balanced XLR outputs, assignable outputs, and a stereo aux input. With expandable memory via SD card and USB slots, you'll never run out of space. Plus, wireless Bluetooth MIDI keeps you connected.

Expressive Playing Experience

The Strata Prime kit features 10 mesh-head pads, a 20-inch kick drum, and dual-zone toms and snare. Alesis' ARC cymbals provide a realistic feel with bow, edge, and bell sounds. The hi-hat is laser-accurate and plays naturally. It's a meticulously crafted instrument that responds just as you'd expect.

Additional Goodies

Alongside the Strata Prime, you'll receive cymbal boom arms, a snare stand, a 90-day Drumeo subscription, a 30-day Melodics subscription, and BFD Player software for Mac/PC. All this for a price of $3,499.
