The rugged and portable Keith McMillen Instruments BopPad is an advanced electronic drum pad controller capable of sending accurate, highly nuanced MIDI data to your computer or tablet. It features a fast-response, 10" playing surface, which uses the company's proprietary Smart Fabric Sensor Technology to provide a traditional feel and an expanded range of expressive possibilities for triggering samples, sound effects, pads, chords, and more. Designed to be played with sticks, hands, or any convenient object, the pad is ideal for both conventional and experimental styles of play.

The BopPad playing surface splits into four independent quadrants, each with different sounds. For example, it lets you build a drum kit and play kick/snare/hi-hat/tom sounds simultaneously. You can also configure the unit to trigger a single sound on the entire surface.

Nearly all aspects of how the BopPad responds to user input can be customized with the BopPad Editor software (free download available separately). The Editor enables you to define what data your BopPad will send, how it will send the data, and how that data is controlled by the different sources. Each quadrant can send up to six MIDI notes, as well as continuous control (CC), polyphonic aftertouch, channel pressure, velocity, and pitch-bend messages.
