Excerpt: While I prefer to mic a full drum kit, some clients prefer the convenience of triggers. I set this up in the studio and after fiddling about with the sensitivity and crosstalk settings I was able to lay down a test recording in about an hour. Too bad Alesis doesn't have a multi-volt/multi-cycle version of this otherwise I'd have rated it five stars.
Excerpt: It does what it says it does, inputs standard drum triggers (I use all single zones, so I cant comment on dual zone use) and outputs in MIDI (5 pin) with all the standards you would come to expect from a basic drum brain. Operation and performance wise, I have no complaints. When it comes to trigger management, I would like to point out some oddities. The biggest irritation is selecting each input trigger. To select a trigger input, you hit it.
Pros: Cheap, Does the job
Cons: Input Selection is a Pain, No Included Mounting HW
Excerpt: The trigger io is easy to use and fully compatible with my laptop, which I use to play drums with Supperior drummer 2.0. It has enough settings to accurately set the dynamic range of each part of my drum set. Works pretty much perfectly. The best for DIY drums. Maybe more inputs would be good though...
Summary: Hey what's up, well i test this interfase with ddrum triggers on EZ drummer and works really good, the only thing i note, is that some of the installation information is missing on the instructions, it says the interfase doesn't requiere installation drivers, well i actually install it over Win XP sp3 and it detect it but in the Cubase 5 don't recognize the Interfase, so i install BFD lite Cd and then it works fine, great sounds and response.
Excerpt: I bought this to convert an old acoustic drum to an electronic drum, by using piezoelectric sensors, mesh heads and VST drum modules such as Native Instrument's Battery or Superior Drummer. I wasn't disappointed by using this unit. It has plenty of options to adjust the sensibility of each trigger and their type.
Excerpt: I wanted to have an electronic drum set that could be used stand alone (w/ a PC), as well as with Rock Band.After reading numerous forums about DIY mesh head eDrums, I decided to take the plunge. I use piezo triggers from [...] and the Trigger I/O with the included BFD Lite drum software.I couldn't be happier with how it all works together. The Trigger I/O is fairly intuitive to use, and has plenty of options to tweak the response of my DIY eDrums for realistic sounds.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality Drum Sounds, Responsive, Versatile
