All the trigger inputs you need to control a complete kit

By nature, the DDTi isn't a terribly complex device. It offers you a total of 10 trigger inputs on 1/4" TRS connectors, accommodating virtually every single- or dual-zone drum pad or acoustic drum trigger you'll find at Sweetwater. What's more, the DDTi is compatible with most hi-hat controllers, offering you both simple on/off (closed/open) and continuously variable control to best fit the rest of your rig.

Plenty of configuration options provide the flexibility you need

There are a ton of different drum pads and triggers to choose from, and drum software, synths, and sound modules all behave a bit differently. That's why it's such a good thing that the DDTi is so flexible. You can customizable the trigger settings, defining the sensitivity, MIDI channels and note assignment, crosstalk, threshold, and even the trigger time of each individual pad or trigger. There are 20 programmable preset slots too, so you can save and recall your settings when you move from setup to setup.

USB and MIDI connectivity

Thanks to the ddrum DDTi's selection of outputs, you can use it with pretty much any hardware or software you want. Direct USB out provides you with plug-and-play compatibility with your favorite virtual instrument drums on your Mac or Windows PC. Alternatively, you can use the 5-pin MIDI output to connect your DDTi to any MIDI-equipped sound module or synth, making it an ideal tool for live performance.

Fortunately it has 10 1/4 in. TRS inputs so my DIY/roland Hybrid electronic drum set is hooked into Superior Drummer. No Mic'ing of drums or cymbals! You have it all right there. Get this if you use an electronic drum set and then get Superior Drummer or BFD3 or one of the other drum software. All you do is connect it via USB from the trigger i/o to your computer and it shows up and works. I love it. Oh and get roland TRS cables. I find those work the best. Quality is important. I have 1 snare, 1 kick, 1 crash, 1 hi-hat, 4 toms, 2 rides = totaling 10 trigger inputs which is perfect for my needs.
Music background: lots o' stuff


I bought this for an electronic kit I built by coverting an acoustic kit. I couldn't find mention of this trigger interface in any of the diy edrums forums. All anyone talked about was the Alesis trigger I/O which is almost identical to this module. I'm glad I went with the ddrum over scouring eBay for an Alesis. The ddrum has all dual zone inputs so you can get a bit more capability out of it. I bought Steven Slate drums after receiving the ddrum trigger interface and now I have access to about 100 different types of drum kits right in my home studio without being loud or changing anything other than a click of a mouse.
