BopPad Smart Drum Pad is now available via a Kickstarter campaign at $199. The company has released a new video, which demonstrates the new features of the drum pad.
BopPad Smart Drum Pad make use of largest smart fabric sensor to accurately detect drum hits, velocity, radius and pressure at a speed of 2.4 milliseconds for more dynamic, expressive drum performances and recordings. The drum pad has been developed jointly by BeBop Sensors and Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI) in a bid to create world’s most responsive and accurate drum pad.
BopPad Smart Drum Pad is exclusively designed for drummers, percussionists, and producers. BopPad has an extremely wide dynamic range,which has the ability to sense all styles and pressures of drumming, from delicate finger strikes to full-on aggressive mallet assaults.
BopPad’s robust tuned elastomer surface covers a 10-inch circle of BeBop Sensors patented Smart Sensor fabric. This gives drummers a traditional feel combined with a whole new dimension of expressiveness for more dynamic drumming in performances and recordings.
BopPad uses continuous piece of smart fabric
BopPad make use of a continuous piece of smart fabric divided into multiple zones. Actually, these zones are responsive to continuous pressure and location. This will in turn makes BopPad not only expressive but also affordable.
Priced at $199, BopPad is an easy and affordable way to add an electronic element to your kit without the mechanical and lifeless drum sounds that often accompany electronic music.
You can only play a drum a few ways, but BopPad allows you to take that skill set and play drums in a way you have never played before

Commenting on the launch of BopPad, BeBop Sensors CEO Keith McMillen disclosed that BeBop needed a way to test its Generation 8 Smart Sensor Fabric in a large format and satisfying the needs of percussionists while surviving the repetitive hits seemed like a great product idea.
Responding to media queries, KMI President Evan Adams revealed that his company is known for ultra-expressive
synthesizer controllers. Many artists complain that electronic music is mechanical and lifeless, but that is due to the interface between the musician and computer. If the synth controller can only turn a sound off and on, it will never sound natural. BopPad solves this particular problem in a unique way.
