Alesis may want us to think the 2 kits are similar but actually the Strike module includes more of the original DM10 Pro functions than the new pretend DM10 MK2 Pro.

Hi Vincent,

Thanks for posting. 

In terms of the features that are offered, both kits are identical. However, The DM10 MKII has a different module than the original, which is a lot more user-friendly than the previous version. 

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.

I beg to differ.... it is much less user friendly, needs a lot of menu browsing to adjust things..
Trigger signal quality is diminished because of low quality cable snake...
etc...

FYI, to see how similar the DM10 Pro and Strike modules are just compare the kit and voice editing parameters in each User guide. Some of their useful features like mixed A/B voice layering and dynamic velocity settings aren't available in the DM10 MkII Pro.

I have problems with the new DM10 MKII Pro module and it's hi-hat it's triggering and sound seems to be random ish ... and then looking at the 12" cymbal, it supposed to have dual zone (i think) and then the module also has options for hi-hat edge...
Q: what's going on, is hi-hat edge zone option available but not supported by the cabel snake or ?

Since this message, I acquired a strike hihat cymbol and used that for a while, but even there the closing and opening feel was horrible... that sensor is of awful design...

So i ended up selling all the cymbals of the module and replacing them with zildjian gen16 symbols...

And my snare broke.. and i am trying now to redesign the entire anatomy of that pad, to be more realistic more Roland like...

I also am finding the hi hat trigger is not as responsive as the rest of the kit, which is a pretty big deal. How do I know if I have a bad trigger?

If you connect another cable from the snake to the hi-hat, do you experience the same issue?

The pro MKII does not support layering like the original. And I found that while it had very deep editing functions that they didn't really work that well. And whats even weirder is that the MKII studio actually sounds better, has better kits, but just no ability to really tweak things like the MKII pro. And also note that even though the Studio and the pro are both DM10 MKII models they do not share any software and you cannot take the better sounds of the studio and put them on the pro. The new version may be more user friendly. But it really has nothing in common except the hardware.

1: Can you please allow us access to better kits for the DM Pro MK II?

2: Add the dual zone back like the original. We know it's in there!

It's just a code that you should be able to activate.

I know the module is capable of more but you have handicapped it to sale more strikes.

Our hi hat & kick are the least responsive out of all the triggers can you fix that also?

I'm considering Alesis dm10 mkII pro a bad investment, i regret it, money would have better spent for Roland kit, at least that i could have resold at a reasonable price and then buy a better version as i grow...

@Losif
Totally agree, totally not satisfied with the MKII Pro Kit.
It's sold as a flagship, only one step lower as the Strike?
I wish i saved some more money and buy a Roland instead, a TD 17 for example.
