Sunhouse introduces Sensory Percussion

After raising more than US$94k in a successful Kickstarter campaign last August, Sunhouse has begun shipping Sensory Percussion to campaign backers and new customers around the world. Sensory Percussion is available now to purchase on the Sunhouse website.

Sensory Percussion is a modern take on electronic drums that captures the true expressive nature of drumming. While triggers turn your drum into little more than an on/off button, Sensory Percussion listens and reacts, responding to the essence of your performance.

It is a hardware + software system that is an overlay onto acoustic drums. The sensor clamps to the side of a drum (snare, tom or kick) and connects to our Mac/PC software via a standard audio interface as a phantom-powered microphone.

Sensory Percussion understands where and how you hit the drum. It not only lets you map different parts of the drum to any sound desired (from samples and synthesizers to digital audio effects), it also lets you control those sounds in an intuitive, expressive way.

The result is a new instrument that let’s you create with electronics in a way never before possible: with the natural expressivity of acoustic drums united with the power of modern audio software.

  • control up to ten independent sound regions on a single drum.
  • blend between sound regions.
  • control continuous effects with your playing.
  • apply effects controls across multiple drums.
  • automatic and adaptive smart cross-talk cancellation.
