  • Triggers on acoustic kit ?

    Hi folks...noob here.

    What do I need to purchase in order to use acoustic kits as triggers to send MIDI data through something like Superior 2 or EXDrummer and on into my sequencer ?

    I know I'll need triggers for each drum and a module. But do these modules send MIDI data? I don't care about recording the audio out of the module, only the MIDI data. I will record the cymbals live.

    Will my idea work? If so, could I get a listing of the components needed to accomplish this.

    I forget the company but I believe Alesis (correct if I'm wrong) makes just a straight module with like 8 or 12 inputs that is made only for MIDI or something like that (basically for usage for pads or triggers to go into something like BFD2/Superior/Etc. It's only 100-200 I believe too.

      Thanks for the info.

      I'll do a search vased on your post.

      Also, are the ddrum triggers workable for my scenario?

      Thanks again!

        I've heard positive and negatives about them. I've heard the Roland's are better, but more expensive. But just read some reviews as I can't base my opinion on anything other than what I've read.
