The Alesis Nitro Mesh Is Dual Zone Compatible!

The Alesis Nitro Mesh is a great inexpensive electronic drum set that comes with one dual zone snare pad, and 3 tom pads (and kick, cymbal, and hi hat pads). However the 3 tom pads it comes with are only single zone. However, by chance I discovered that all of the tom inputs are actually dual zone, even the expansion one! This means you can upgrade all the pads to dual zone!

Also, if you haven’t already, take a look at my ‘lost manual’ that has all kinds of information not found in the Alesis manual.

    Hello from Spain

    How did you get the rim sound to work on your Tom? I bought my Nitro a week ago and my module does not have any option about the rim of the toms.

    Thanks a lot. Fantastic Youtube channel! .

      That’s what I’m trying to explain in this post. All of the tom inputs are dual zone capable, but the kit comes with single zone toms. Simple solution, switch the snare pad with tom 2, then program the rim to be a ride. The other option is to get another dual zone pad. Hope that helps.

      Hello

      Just an FYI, this is also the exact same module as the Alesis “Surge” kit. So any of the Surge toms have dual zones. You can find the Surge toms for reasonable prices.

      Rock on people!!!!

    curious… if all the pad connections are dual zone, (despite the actual pad – excluding the snare), does that mean I can by a second kit and a splitter for each tom and assign the second “zone” of that room to a new pad further expanding the kit?
