    Default Pearl malletStation

    The malletSTATION model EM1 is a full sized 3.0 octave adjustable range electronic mallet controller designed for all players in any genre, from the beginning student through the gigging professional.

    The adjustable low note range function allows you to set the fundamental diatonic note of the instrument to what you need—low D xylophone? No problem! The malletSTATION is powered exclusively by Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, and Android devices through USB Bus Power, allowing performance almost anywhere with minimal set-up and equipment.

    Designed in collaboration with Keith McMillen Instruments, malletSTATION’s tech-forward design features KMI’s Smart Fabric Sensor technology allowing the silicone bar material to have an extremely sensitive, natural response, including mallet dampening and aftertouch control, and all can be easily tailored to your individual playing style.

    The EM1 features a master control section, with 3 programmable faders, 4 programmable buttons, and the fixed function low note and octave shift buttons. In addition, three assignable pedal inputs allow for flexibility in performance such as sustain, expression, or any MIDI parameter of your choice. These controls are fully programmable through a software editor so changing your configuration is as easy as clicking a mouse.

    The EM1 malletSTATION is also the most affordable mallet percussion controller on the market, street priced at just $999. The ultra-thin, lightweight chassis allows for easy portability, and the flexible mounting options provide many different ways of using your instrument. This is the only controller that will grow with you throughout your playing career—from music apps on your phone or tablet, to professional digital audio workstations and sound libraries—your sounds, and even the instruments you play, are only limited by the software you run.

    This thing really intrigues me as I've been considering adding electronics to my kit as well as learning to play xylophone. I'd love to be able to play a xylophone as well as other percussion instruments to get some other gig experiences, and this seems like a decently affordable way to do so.

    Though I should probably still pick up a cheap used bell set just to see if I can even grasp the idea of a xylophone lol.

    Matt Jordan played a piece with drumsticks you should have heard the kick and toms as well as the timpani and concert snares. It sounded like an entire symphony playing but it's only you!

    Default Nick Werth / malletSTATION at PASIC

    Nick Werth of Ghost Note/Galaxe with the malletSTATION at PASIC 2017.

    During his demonstration, he explained that there was no pre-planning... he simply plugged his laptop into the malletSTATION to start playing his samples.
