"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."- Modern Drummer
Introducing Modules A new way to build sounds. Each module performs a different action on anything inside of it, and they can be nested infinitely to create complex systems of sound.

Sequence samples or other modules for multiple layers of sound design. Advanced mapping allows you to assign multiple modules to a single step. You can sequence anything from chords and melodies to full drum kit presets.

Complete ControlControl 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.
Pitch shift a sample to a scale by how fast you play.
Manipulate filters by how hard you play.
Change the pitch of a sample based on where the drum head is hit

The SensorThe redesigned Sensor uses contactless sensing technology to track your playing with maximal responsiveness. It uses a 3.5 mm TRS cable to connect to the EVANS Sensory Percussion Portal. The Sensor is designed to fit most standard snares and toms with metal or wood hoops and kick drums with wood hoops.

The PortalThe EVANS Sensory Percussion Portal Audio Interface gives you more input/output flexibility than ever. Want to set up a a monster kit? You can do that with the Portal's 7 drum sensor inputs. Want to expand your Sensory Percussion experience beyond the drums? With four analog inputs, you can connect your vocal mic, synth, guitar, or any other number of devices and process them alongside your drums inside of the Sensory Percussion software. And with 8 output channels and ADAT capability, there are more ways than ever to monitor your sound--whether you’re at home, on stage, or in the studio.
