Worth every penny.
by Math from Minneapolis, MN USAOutstanding device. Straight away I was triggering in Live as well as Logic with my DIY drum triggers. Very versatile if you put a little time into it, adjusting x-talk, velocity curves, etc. This was... read more [+] exactly what I was after, as I've never been a big fan of drum module sounds, and instead rely on my own sampling, etc. to get sounds I'm looking for. And since this is simply a trigger-to-midi device, the possibilities are endless. Highly recommended. close [-]

GREAT with RET Edrums!
by Joey V from Chicago, USAI have used my Trigger Io for about 2 years now. I didn't know much about it when I got my RET Percussion electronic drum set. It's a high end kit, using real drum heads, so I thought it was neat to... read more [+] see the Trigger Io paired with it.

It translates my hits into MIDI notes which goes through to my VPT software. I use Superior Drummer 2.0, EZdrummer, Addictive Drums, BFD2, and KitCore.
I would highly recommend this for anyone using the RET Percussion kits. close [-]
Overall a quality product.
by Ben from Austin, TXI'm now a user of BFD for almost everything drums. As such, I didn't want to pay for a Roland drum module only to use it for the triggers. I was using an Alesis DM5, but its triggering technology is... read more [+] a bit out of date. So I picked up the Trigger I/O. It seems to translate very accurately. One bonus is that both the USB out and the MIDI out work simultaneously. This allows me to send the USB out to my computer for recording the MIDI notes and the MIDI out to an external drum machine (my DM5) for zero latency monitoring for the drummer. Setup would be easier if they created a piece of software to help calibrate each trigger (gain, velocity curve, x-talk, noise threshold, and midi note). Once setup, I have no complaints. close [-]
