A new sound. A new feel. And, a completely new e-drumming experience. e/MERGE blends the dynamics of Wave Trigger Technology with the e/MERGE Module Powered by KORG, and the sensitivity of the PUREtouch Pad System to create an exceptional e-drumming experience.

MODULE: The all new acoustic library for the MDL1 was recorded in one of the world’s most respected recording studios in historic Music City USA, Nashville, Tennessee. Both current and vintage instruments in a full variety of sizes were chosen and sampled. You will recognize some familiar tones in the style of several iconic Pearl artists, some specific genres, decades, and historic songs and styles from the past to the present. Customize sets and save your presets to the library, choose from over 35 different onboard effects, record your performances for hours on end, or just lay into it and play!

The e/MERGE Module is not about useless bells and whistles. It's about simplicity and performance. With eight assignable outs, two master outs, headphone outs and an auxiliary in, the MDL1 easily handles all your live performance and recording needs. But one of the most exciting features of the e/MERGE module is the Ambience Slider. Taken from a mix of the room and overhead mics during the recording process, the Ambience Slider allows you to instantly add color, natural room reverb and live vibe to any acoustic set. The e/MERGE Module hosts feature upon feature designed to make your playing experience unique. If you love to play drums, this module... this e-drum set is for you.
