The ATV Artist AD5 is an electronic drum kit that feels and sounds like an acoustic kit. With high quality, professionally recorded kit samples, a wide dynamic range, recording functionality and compatibility with other manufacturer pads. You also have the option to expand the sound library via the ATV Sound Store.
Quality Drum Samples From a Natural Feeling Kit
The AD5 Artist electronic kit from Japanese manufacturer ATV features a carefully selected range of drum samples. While many electric kits tend to feature hundreds of sounds, many of which you'll never find a good use for, ATV have taken a more measured approach. Using their proprietary sampling technology ATV have recorded the highest quality vintage instruments, played by knowledgeable and expressive artists, in top studios with high end equipment, and they don't allow the sounds to be featured in their drum modules until they're 100% happy with the results.
ATV Sound Store
ATV are constantly recording new samples made available via their ATV Sound Store, meaning once you've bought the kit you still have the option to expand and change your sound easily using the Instrument Import System. The ATV Sound Store provides an attractive selection of newly released instruments, explanations and sample performances by pro drummers to allow you to experience the character and expressiveness of each instrument. You can even see a thumbnail photo of the actual instrument that was sampled.
Pure Dynamic Expression
ATV place a great importance on the way playing a kit feels. That's why they've spent time to develop their high-speed trigger detection technology to ensure low-latency sound generation. This means you'll hear the sound as soon as you hit the pad, with no delay, just as you would with an acoustic kit. The kit also features a newly developed drum sound engine created to express full dynamic range. This combined with the multiple sensor pads allows drummers to manipulate dynamics freely and easily in a natural way. From pianissimo to fortissimo and everything in between the AD5 provides a realistic sound range. Even drum rolls flow naturally with no mechanical repetitions.
But it doesn't stop there, ATV have taken dynamic expression one step further with their Trigger Set Up Wizard which allows drummers to make fine adjustments to each pad. From the depth of the rim shot to the strike location on a ride cymbal the Trigger Set Up Wizard software learns the nuances of your playing technique to ensure the most natural playing experience.
Hear Only The Pad You Hit
Have you ever hit one pad on an electric kit and heard the sound of another pad? Like the crash cymbal triggering each time you hit the snare. Designed to stop miss-triggering because of sympathetic vibrations, the AD5 electronic kit features a crosstalk cancellation setting to ensure you only hear the pad you hit.
Look As Good As You Sound
ATV know that looking at a great musical instrument makes you want to play it. That's why they designed the AD5 to appear sleek, simple and stylish. Designed and sized like an acoustic kit the AD5 has been created to replicate the feel, sense of space and strike sensitivity of acoustic kits.
Record Your Rhythm
The ATV Artist kit also has the capability to record your playing. With both stereo audio recording and MIDI functionality you can record your parts easily into your favourite DAW. All the preinstalled kits on the AD5 are unprocessed meaning you can manipulate the clean sounds post recording as you would with any acoustic kit.
Compatible With Other Brands
A great feature of the ATV Artist AD5 is that it supports all high-performing pads and drum triggers from major manufacturers. A definitive list of compatible brands and models can be found at the ATV Incorporation website.
