Sensory Percussion combines the expressive power of real drums with the freedom of digital control: Turn your drumset into a new kind of creative tool!

"This isn’t just another electronic system with basic drum triggers sending simple on/off messages to a MIDI controller to fire one-shot samples and loops. It’s much deeper—and more humanistic—than that."
Your drums just got a lot more versatile
A sampler built for drummers: stack, randomize, and sequence samples for expressive drum sounds or entire compositions–chords, melodies, vocals and more -- all–controlled by your drums.
Control any aspect of the software with your playing technique. Use playing speed, velocity, and even location on the drum to dial in effects and unleash a new level of expression.
With Sensory Percussion you can use your drum kit to do anything a producer would do with their computer mouse.
Sounds for days - all included
Get started with hundreds of expressive ready-to-play preset kits, from popular and world genres to glitchy synths and atmospheric spaces.
Build your own kit from scratch with over 28,288 raw samples from 18 carefully curated sound packs. Each pack professionally recorded and designed in-house exclusively for the Sensory Percussion community.
Also compatible with third- party sample libraries, drag-and-drop virtually any audio file right onto a pad to expand your sounds even further.
Mappable and extendable
Use your drums, your movements or your favorite MIDI controller to manipulate any parameter in the software. With Sensory Percussion’s flexible mapping, you can create an entire show and perform it from behind the kit.
Use your drums to control lights, external synths or anything that accepts MIDI. Create vibrant light shows or control video while you play. Synchronize Sensory Percussion sounds and presets with your Ableton Live session or simply use your drums as an expressive and powerful MIDI controller.
