    Hi all! new here so here's my question. I want to program drum patterns into a computer. Up until now I've been using the keys on my keyboard to trigger the sounds but it's so time consuming.
    I am a drummer as well and would llike to know what the best "bang for the buck" would be in getting a drum controller. I looked into midi drums sets. but they're too expensive. I would rent, but the stores don't rent them out. I don't need it long term. I looked somewhat into the alessis midi drum controller but I don't have any hands on with theses units. I don't need sounds, just the controller. Any thoughts? Thanks ! Jake

    Welcome aboard

    What is your budget? Maybe you could look at finding a second hand TD3 module if you are after a trigger to midi converter on the cheap.

      Reason

      I got "Reason Adapted" which is a cut down version of Reason, i got that and Ableton Live Lite for a few quid off Ebay.

      Reason has an easy to use programmable drum machine called Redrum and you can assign any WAV samples to it.

      Of course it's not real drumming but it's an easy and cheap way to, as you said "program drum patterns into a PC" it's like a step sequencer ... i just fired mine up and within 3 mins had a great cuban beat going from scratch ... it's good fun.

        Reason is a fantastic app. I must agree with Daveybabes here

        The drums in my songs Valentine and Phil's Mansion (with it's big Phil Collins style tom solo at the end) were done in Reason (before I got my TD12).
