Faster than you can shake a stick in? Absolutely – as attested by its incredible latency of less than 3ms! BopPad’s advanced architecture allows for an innovative instrument that “sees” every gesture, hit, or tap to truly respond to the nuances of any percussion performance, perfectly measuring the speed of attack from the smoothest actions of percussion to the most brutal percussion attack.

However, this is achieved by the continuous variation of the radial detection from the center to the edge, with a continuous pressure response to either parameter that allows for traditional and experimental game styles like no other! After saving the presets in BopPad, there is no the BopPad Editor software must be run during use.

at a price so attractive that it is very demanding. So what better way to conclude your last word about what the last word is? expressive design of electronic drum control as the founder and CEO of the company Keith McMillen recognized sound and music about 30 years innovative technology.
“For years we’ve been asked to make a drum pad with our patented Smart Fabric Sensor technology — a control surface that would integrate seamlessly into a standard drum kit or work perfectly on its own, so we made BopPad, the smart sensor electronic drum pad controller… time to give the drummer some!” – Keith McMillen Instruments Founder & CEO Keith McMillen, 2017.
