Announcing BopPad RED with USB-C
We are excited to announce new upgrades to our BopPad MIDI drum pad controller! The new BopPad RED features a USB-C jack, a colorful new polycarbonate finish, and more robust internal components.
FEATURES TO PLAY BY
BopPad has an extremely wide dynamic range and measures strike velocity from the softest hand drumming to the most brutal percussive assault.
BopPad brings a new level of possibility to your drum set. Trigger samples, sound effects, pads and chords. Radial sensitivity unleashes dynamic potential!
BopPad has a tuned elastomer surface, no moving parts, and a USB port guard ensures it will stand up to a lifetime of spills, fills, and hard hits.
I've been wanting a piece of gear like this for the longest time. This pad is pretty much the size and weight of a frisbee and does more for me than anything on the market. I use it both conventionally as a drum trigger pad to play synth samples, but also take advantage of its ability to send an array of cc/pressure data to manipulate both audio and video in my live gigs with Edit Bunker.
"BopPad is another one of KMI’s irresistible instruments."
The BopPad is the most expressive pad controller I’ve ever used. It’s my new go-to for giving midi percussion parts a human feel.
You can only play a drum a few ways, and BopPad allows you to take that skill set and play drums in a way you’re never played before.
The BopPad just works. It has a great amount of useable sensitivity and control.
"From a physical perspective, the BopPad couldn’t be simpler, but from a playing and performance point of view it’s extremely powerful... This is a great addition to any percussionist’s or programmer’s arsenal."
With the ability to play six notes at a time in addition to six mod lines for expression, the BopPad is a fantastic addition to the world of percussion controllers!
"A go anywhere, tough as nails, and incredibly fun MIDI controller from the evil geniuses at KMI."
"A seemingly simple USB pad controller with virtually limitless capabilities."
"100% Perfect little versatile USB Drum Pad"
"Right from the unboxing, I was impressed by the BopPad. The BopPad is an incredibly feature rich MIDI drum pad controller."
BopPad is the expressive electronic drum pad for drummers, percussionists and producers. BopPad gives you accurate hit detection (with latency under 3ms!), velocity, continuous radius and pressure. Four independently programmable zones output MIDI notes, velocity, pitch bend, pressure and location CCs.

A robust tuned elastomer surface covers a 10” circle of our patented Smart Fabric Sensor Technology to give you traditional feel and a new dimension of expressivity.
BopPad can also operate as a conventional practice pad with a realistic feel and portable, lightweight design.
With BopPad you can bring a new range of sonic possibility to your drum set, trigger samples, sound effects, pads and chords. Unleash your creativity by playing your software instruments and synthesizers in a whole new way. So portable you can bring it everywhere and never miss a beat when inspiration strikes.
