How does it work?

Sensory Percussion uses a combination of sensors to directly capture the vibrations of your entire drum. It is designed to isolate your drum from ambient noise so you can use it on stage and in loud environments. Though it uses multiple sensors, it operates like a traditional phantom-powered mono microphone and uses standard XLR connectors.

Sensory Percussion’s software analyzes the signal from the sensor and can tell where and how you are hitting the drum using our proprietary algorithms, allowing you to map your playing to electronic control. The software supports up to four sensors at a time.
