Drum Modules (for Triggers) new
      #476881 - 23/06/07 01:04 PM
Hi,
I'm buying a set of DDrum triggers. I was wondering what module you'd suggest? I mainly need it for sending the MIDI data to the computer, one that could send MIDI via USB would be perfect.
I'm not too worried about having sounds but if it does it'd just be an added bonus.
Thanks

The Roland one I've used in the past was very good. The exact model number escapes me, but I think it was something like an "MTC-6" or similar. No doubt a quick peruse of the Roland site will turn up the goods.

No USB on the unit I used, but it was a couple of years back so they may well have added it to the line since then.

Hope that's of some use to you!

yeah i found what you were talking about. The TMC-6. I've just found the Alesis TriggerIO, it's the same as the TMC-6 but with 10 trigger inputs rather than 6, and midi and USB outputs rather than just the midi of TMC-6.
Has anyone had any experience with the Alesis TriggerIO?
Thanks alot

I would guess that it ought to be as good or better than the old Alesis D4 module which works well for me.

I've not had any experience of the Roland units though.

Cheers

James.
