Alesis announces a partnership to develop custom sound sets for the new DM10 Pro Kit. The drum set will make its debut at Alesis's booth, number 400, at the Summer NAMM Show held at the Nashville Convention Center, July 17 — 19. The kit's DM10 module contains a breathtaking collection of sounds on board, and is also the world's first drum-sound module that enables players to load new sound sets via USB connection from their computer. This means that owners' sounds will always stay fresh, current and cutting edge. To that end, Alesis has established a partnership with FXpansion. FXpansion pushes the boundaries of audio software technology, with software such as the award-winning BFD series of software drum modules. "We are proud and honored to partner with a first-class name in drum sampling," said Adam Cohen, Director of Business Development, Alesis. "Drummers and producers alike will truly be impressed by these sounds." The DM10 Pro Kit will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers in Q3, 2009. Sound sets from FXpansion will also be available in Q3, 2009.
