Mimic Pro Drum Module


Superior sound, fantastic preloaded drum samples, accurate triggering, easy setup, endless customisation options, lightning fast loading time and a massive 120GB solid state drive. 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.

"Mimic Pro is a giant leap forward in drum module technology. It is a state-of-the-art touchscreen computer filled with the most detailed drum kits recorded in some of the best studios in the world. But you will not know its true power until you play it."

Fantastic Sound Library

At the heart of this ground breaking unit is the new Steven Slate 5 PRO drum library that features multi-channel high-end drum samples recorded in world class studios. Unlike most modules, the Mimic Pro comes with a factory presets that are exceptionally usable. You won't find tons of synthetic drum machine sound-alikes that you will never need. Only the best acoustic sounds. Every drum kit available is labeled with an actual size, a brand, and model. 

The Ultimate in Customisation

Every aspect of the settings could be fine-tuned to your exact playing style. All the instrument support adjustment of Attack, Sustain, Release, Tune, Pan and volume. Instead of substituting digital effects to create ambience, instruments use the actual ambient recordings with separate adjustment of close, overhead and room mics for the most realistic and natural sound.

Intuitive Interface

Mimic Pro is the first drum module to implement a 7” IPS touch screen. It is bright and responsive which makes the user interface a breeze to navigate. It was also built with live perfomances in mind, so switching the kits or tweaking the settings on the fly has never been easier. Moreover, the Pearl Mimic Pro is 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.

Excellent Build Quality

The Pearl Mimic Pro unit is very well made and gives you a truly solid feel; everything is heavy duty right through to the power rocker switch. It makes you confident, it won't let you down. 

Studio and Live

The Pearl Mimic Pro e-drum module is perfect for live and in the studio. These drums have been recorded to be very flexible in any perfomance application. They are not too "effected", instead you are able to adjust exactly the way you need it, without the sacrifice of always sounding the same way.

Connects with Everything

This drum module is compatible with Pearl TruTrac pads but also supports most pads from other brands, so you will be able to use the gear you already have. Together with 16 Audio outs, 16 Trigger inputs, independent SD card Slot, USB and Midi In & Out and a Stereo Aux input it makes the Mimic Pro a perfect solution for today's musician.
