With 15 drums sets and 123 sounds to choose from, every time you sit down at your XD8USB - your creativity will instantly be unleashed!
Ready to Rock Right Out-of-the Box
Behringer knows how much you love to play, so they designed the XD8USB drum kit for fast and easy, tool-free setup. Just pull the kit out of the box, position the drum and cymbal pads the way you like 'em and plug in; it's just that simple. The XD8USB also comes pre-loaded with music tracks in a variety of styles, so you can sharpen your skills, or if you're just getting started - learn to play to real music. There's even an Aux Input, so you can play along with your favorite songs and practice tracks. And when you're finished playing, just fold up the kit and stash it behind the couch or underneath the bed. Now your significant other will still respect you in the morning!
The way drums "feel" is one of the most important factors, especially for drummers who use electronic drums for practice and then return to an acoustic kit for live performance. So they gave the pads a natural rubber surface, which mimics the feel of real skins and minimizes false triggering. The XD8USB features a sturdy, extruded aluminum frame, which provides a solid foundation for the drum and cymbal pads. You'll really appreciate this added stability when you're rockin' out full-tilt.
USB Audio Interface
One of the XD8USB's coolest features is the built-in USB audio interface, which allows you to connect directly to your computer. This incredible functionality lets you tap into your virtual instruments, drum software and DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) recording software (not included). Such flexibility opens tremendous opportunities for file sharing with your band mates - especially when you need to collaborate on songwriting and recording projects.
Easy setup and feel are important, but how does the XD8USB sound? Thanks to the HDS (High Definition Sampling) technology you get top-notch studio drum, percussion and cymbal sounds, all of which are velocity sensitive for your most-nuanced performance. The factory-preset kits and sounds are programmed to give you an amazing range of professional-grade sounds for the ultimate versatility - plus you can program and store your own kits for instant recall.
The Brain Behind the Sound
Years of engineering went into the design of the XD8USB's incredible HDS110USB sound module. Once the sounds were created and tweaked, Behringer turned their attention to making the sound module's user interface extremely flexible, functional, and most importantly - easy to use. All controls are laid out in a very logical format, and stepping through setup parameters is highly intuitive, so you can spend less time reading a manual - and more time playing!
