NAMM 2012 PRESS RELEASE: Acorn Instruments adds a second digital drum set to
their lineup with the introduction of the Triple-D10. Like the Triple-D5 introduced last
year, the Triple-D10 offers great feel and rugged construction.

In addition, the Triple-
D10 features an expanded sound library, dual-zone cymbal pads with choke-strip, a
separate kick drum pad and greater flexibility in setup. The Triple-D10 is fully USB
class compliant for use with your favourite music production software on Mac or PC.

Meticulous care was taken to capture the richest, most realistic sound samples

The Triple-D10 features over 600 widely diverse drum and percussion sounds,
more than 20 mallet instruments, and a full complement of DSP effects which can be
configured and stored in up to 50 user-definable drum kits. Levels and tuning for each
instrument within a kit can be individually adjusted, then add reverb and chorus to get
your mix just right.

The Triple-D10 includes a number of features designed to help you become a better
drummer. A metronome is included with tap tempo adjust, plus more than 50 time-
signature options. Pre-recorded practice songs are included from a wide range of styles
to help you practice your groove. There's also a built-in record option which allows you
to store up to 10 performances so you can listen back and fine-tune your playing.

The threshold, sensitivity, cross-talk, and velocity curve for each pad can be configured
independently for an individually optimised response. The rubber coated pads provide
exactly the right amount of bounce to make the kit comfortable to play and avoid fatigue.
No matter what style of music you're playing, whether in the studio or on stage, the
Triple-D10 will deliver a superb performance every time.
