Ready to Rock Right Out-of-the Box
One of the XD8USB’s coolest features is the built-in USB audio interface, which allows you to connect directly to your computer. This incredible functionality lets you tap into your virtual instruments, drum software and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) recording software (not included). Such flexibility opens tremendous opportunities for file sharing with your band mates – especially when you need to collaborate on songwriting and recording projects.
The way drums “feel” is one of the most important factors, especially for drummers who use electronic drums for practice and then return to an acoustic kit for live performance. So we gave our pads a natural rubber surface, which mimics the feel of real skins and minimizes false triggering. The XD8USB features a sturdy, extruded aluminum frame, which provides a solid foundation for the drum and cymbal pads. You’ll really appreciate this added stability when you’re rockin’ out full-tilt.
