Keith McMillen Instruments develops innovative hardware and software technologies that allow musicians to interface with computers in exciting new ways. Based in Berkeley, California, KMI’s products provide today’s musician with the tools needed to bring new dimensions of expression and control to their performance. The belief is that when a computer is played as a musical instrument it should feel and respond like one, with all the nuance and sensitivity that makes an instrument musical.
BopPad is the expressive electronic drum pad for drummers, percussionists and producers. BopPad gives you accurate hit detection (with latency under 3ms!), velocity, continuous radius and pressure. Four independently programmable zones output MIDI notes, velocity, pitch bend, pressure and location CCs.
BopPad has an extremely wide dynamic range and measures strike velocity from the softest hand drumming to the most brutal percussive assault. A robust tuned elastomer surface covers a 10” circle of our patented Smart Fabric Sensor Technology to give you traditional feel and a new dimension of expressivity.
BopPad can also operate as a conventional practice pad with a realistic feel and portable, lightweight design.
