    List of Alesis DM7X Drum sounds.
        Page last modified on Thu Nov 30, 2017
The attempt here, is to show the 385 unlisted trigger sounds the DM7X module can provide. Would really like to include the audio sound samples on this page, and may eventually get around to that. Probably the first place to start, is to watch this youtube video about how to get to these settings. You can find that link at;

For example, to change the sound or trigger setting for the snare, select the kit number you want, then select the Voice button, hit the snare, and then use the left or right buttons to select the number that corresponds to the sound you want to use. Hopefully we have given some names, which only shows up as numbers listed in the kit.
Note: Remember that only kit numbers 25-40 can be saved.

The order of the groups of sounds show up all over the place. I was spending more time looking for the sounds, than actually getting to use them. So decided to try and list what I could. This will obviously be a work in progress to try and group these sounds in to more defined areas. Here's what I have so far. They are listed in the table below.

Got an e-mail about a better way to organize and sort these sounds. All my goal was, to initially get these sounds listed. Anyone willing to take steps further for better organization, please be my guest. Just send me a link to what you end up doing so I can take advantage of this as well.

Depending on your browser, you can use either Ctrl-F or Alt-F to search through the names.

For suggestions or better descriptive names for these sounds, you can comment through this e-mail form.
