On the fly drum trigger/audio muting?
So to try to explain I'll say what I'm trying to achieve first - Live drum triggers I can switch off and on in the middle of a performance via a pedal or triggered pad, on a budget. I just want to be able to layer up say a subby kick sound and snare clap with mic'd drums, but be able to drop it in and out (on choruses for example).
Been looking at something like the Nord Drum (original/cheapest one), but can see no way of hooking up some form of foot switch to control a mute, or switch to an empty bank? I really don't need a big drum module. All I'm after is 2 or 3 different kick/snare sounds. Either well synthesised or just something with a little SD input. An ideal piece of kit would be a small sampler with an SD card in with a super basic interface, then a few trigger inputs and some form of footswitch input. Unfortunately I don't think such a piece of kit exists!
If not this, possibly some sort of audio mute pedal I can put between the line out and DI box? I'm on quite a tight budget to be honest so, any suggestions welcomed?

As for drum triggers, they triggers can be DIY
