Keith McMillen Instruments – BopPad

Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI) is a California-based company that focuses on developing innovative hardware and software that allows musicians to incorporate computers and tablets into their performances with incredible levels of nuance and control. The primary technology that the company developed to unlock such advanced expressivity is called Smart Fabric, which features a layer of sensors beneath each pad that interprets subtle changes in velocity, pressure, and strike position with realistic accuracy. KMI’s first foray into the electronic drum market is the super-slim yet highly durable and versatile four-zone BopPad ($199). Let’s check it out.
