  • Alesis Trigger Io just for DIY add ons.

    I purchased the Io mainly for testing purposes. Although IMO it is somewhat limited as the main building foundation for the E kit. I find it an economical add on tool, especially for adding on multiple single zone pads to that filled up drum module. All but the ride input are easily splittable using a standard insert splitter(no special DIY splitter necessary).

    So even though I don't really need this.... well, at the price it might as well sit below my main modules with the MIDI cable patched in..... beaconing silently....... add-on, plenty of inputs open!

    For some reason J I have no doubt you will find or make something to do just that.

        It was only a matter of time before we were reduced to these types of "mines longer than yours" of contests!

          They say size is not important, as long as it still works Chris Mine is made of steel and I'm hoping to get a few more years out of it.

              Hey Jman,

              I don't own one of these but was thinking of getting one once my GAS kicks in and I decide I don't have enough things to hit. But seriously, would you mind elaborating on why you only suggest it as an "add-on" tool and do you think it wouldn't work well for stereo inputs?

              Thanks,
              Dan

                Hi Dan: Although I never went into an in depth review of the Io... this thread pretty well describes why I would go with a TD module as my main base, whether I was triggering module sounds or samples. Just my opinion obviously.
