A new sound. A new feel. And, a completely new e-drumming experience. e/MERGE blends the dynamics of Wave Trigger Technology (WTT) with the e/MERGE Module Powered by KORG and the sensitivity of the PureTouch Pad System to create an exceptional e-drumming experience. Wave Trigger Technology uses parallel processing of your character and your sound and seamlessly layers it with high definition samples to infinitely color the sound produced. WTT began with KORG's Wave Drum and KORG's engineers developed a new algorithm designed to achieve maximum performance response. Each strike of the drum is captured by two separate sound sources. The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) audio sensor captures the initial strike and head response simultaneously as the second sensor triggers the PCM (Pulse Code modulation) sound file. The algorithm expertly blends the two sound sources together, and for the first time ever in an electronic drum set captures every nuance of the stick strike. Regardless of where you strike the head or the dynamic level, the superior sensitivity of the DSP captures it accurately. This level of sensitivity is unmatched in electronic drums. The e/MERGE MDL1 sound module features a newly designed operating system developed by KORG that features dual high-performance processors that easily handle the Wave Trigger Technology of blending larger sound files from separate sources. The high-powered CPU provides accurate trigger response for natural playability. The 16 GB large capacity memory stores 35 preconfigured drum sets with space for 50 additional user-built kits. The sound library consists of Pearl drum sets newly recorded at a world-class Nashville studio and blended with a deep selection of electronics, modern digital and beat machines from the extensive KORG sound vault. Orchestral, concert and world percussion instruments complete the sound library. The innovation of the e/MERGE Module provides a simplicity of design and function that allows you to simply play more by putting the user-friendly controls at your fingertips. The dial and large dedicated genre buttons allow you to quickly navigate through the kit banks. A major feature of the e/MERGE Module is the Ambience Fader that gives you real time control of the actual recorded room ambience. 8 Direct Outputs, 2 Master Outputs, and Stereo Aux In give you full routing capabilities for any performance situation. Three additional inputs allow for the expansion of your e/MERGE kit. The PUREtouch Pad System walks the finest line between the natural feel of an acoustic drum and the response of an electric pad. e/MERGE features real size pads (14" snare, 10", 12" & 14" toms and 18" x 12" bass drum) along with an 18" three zone Ride, 15" two zone Crash and 14" Hi-hats. Pearl's exclusive Icon e/Rack provides a solid foundation for accurate positioning of your drums and cymbals with room to expand your kit.
