    Enabling the drummer's groove

    The most important criteria for great playability is that the sound be heard at the very same instant as the strike. For drummers whose timing control is measured in mere milliseconds, delayed timing can destroy the groove. Even if the individual sounds are the same, differences in groove can create completely different musical expressions. To capture such differences, the aD5 was developed from the ground up to provide high-speed trigger detection and low-latency sound generation. This, as well as some clever proprietary technology that allows a gigantic amount of uncompressed audio data to sound at the very instant of a strike, a drummer's unique personality can be clearly expressed.

    The true dynamic range of drums

    Electronic drums traditionally have had a dynamic range that can "max out" relatively easily. While this characteristic allows anyone to perform with a consistent sound, this long-standing e-drum flaw has made it difficult to obtain the natural and varied sound of acoustic drums. During development, correcting this flaw was a priority. The aD5 features a dedicated drum sound engine, newly developed to express the full dynamic range—from subtle pianissimo (ppp) to powerful fortissimo (fff). The audio source material was captured with this full dynamic range, and the sound design process exploits it, allowing the sound engine to accurately reproduce a drummer's hits. Even when you play a roll, the sound engine allows the roll to flow in a natural-sounding way—mechanical repetitions are a thing of the past.
