Los  Angeles, January, 2012 – Acorn Instruments, is now shipping the highly  anticipated Triple-D5 dynamic digital drum kit. This full-featured  electronic kit offers great feel, exceptional sound quality and sturdy construction at an incredible value. The Triple-D5 is  ideally suited for entry-level and experienced players alike for  low-volume practice, live performance or computer music composition.

A USB  port is available on the Triple-D5 module to connect to a computer and  is compatible with virtually any MIDI compliant music production  software on Mac or PC.  Record drum parts with the internal sounds or use your favorite third-party sample library.

The  Triple-D5 module contains 30 pre-configured drum kits which can be  customized and saved using any of the 327 available sounds.  A  combination of close-miking and ambient-miking techniques were used to fully capture the characteristics of renowned drum and  percussion instruments in order to create a sound library that can cover  music styles from rock and americana to trip-hop and electronica.   Levels and panning are completely adjustable, plus there is a full compliment of DSP effects such as reverb and chorus which can  be programmed for each instrument within a kit individually.

The  Triple-D5 digital drum set was designed with performance in mind.  The  durable, rubber-coated pads provide a fast, active response.  Each pad  can be individually tailored to different playing styles by adjusting sensitivity, threshold and velocity. The drum frame  is manufactured from extruded aluminum to ensure maximum durability, yet  lightweight enough to be easy-to-transport. Every pad can be angle and  height-adjusted to suit various playing requirements.

  Traditional 5 piece kit configuration
