Firebox USB Drum Kit

Online retailer Firebox has just released its USB Drum Kit, a compact drum set made solely for PCs. The instrument uses the same principles behind electronic drum sets to provide backing percussion for audio recordings or just to replicate the sound of a full drum through a computer's headphones or speakers, Firebox says. The bundled software can produce any of 233 different drum sounds and over 50 rhythm patterns to use as reference points while playing. All the cymbals and drums are velocity-sensitive, allowing both dramatic and subtle taps; similarly, any pad can be choked to deaden the sustain from each note. The Drum Kit can be imported from Firebox for $248 US.
