Mimic Pro


Superior sound, accurate triggering and connectivity are the most important features of a drum module. Pearl Drums and Steven Slate have joined forces to create “Mimic Pro” - the world’s most advanced percussion sound source for studio and live performance applications.

At the heart of this ground breaking unit is the new Steven Slate 5 drum library that features multi-channel drum samples recorded in world class studios. Each instrument supports adjustment of Attack, Sustain, Release, Tune, Pan and volume. Instead of substituting digital effects to create ambience, these
instruments use the actual ambient recordings with separate adjustment of close, overhead and room mics.

Mimic Pro is the first drum module to implement a 7” IPS touch screen and the first to offer 2 mixers for independent headphone and front house outputs. Now that the drummer is responsible for triggering loops and other sounds for a performance, Mimic Pro can import audio files to trigger from your pads.

Storage, compatibility and connectivity
Storage is no longer a problem with Mimic’s 120GB Solid State Drive and lightning fast loading time. Speaking of connectivity, Mimic Pro is compatible with Pearl TruTrac pads and a host of pads from other manufacturers. Top that off with sixteen audio outs, 16 Trigger inputs, independent SD card Slot, USB and Midi In & Out, Stereo Aux input and you would be hard pressed to find a better option for today’s musician.
