    Indispensable tool for the home hobbyist

    If you're using a VI drum kit, a percussion controller is a must. This one gets the job done in impressive fashion at a reasonable cost. One of the things I like most about it is it fits nicely in the corner of my studio. It takes up about half the space of an acoustic kit. Plus it's expandable. There are "midi mergers" (Google it) that allow you to link up two trigger IOs for an insanely huge kit at a fraction of the cost of a real kit. also, if you're triggering a VI, you save literally thousands of dollars and get equal if not better results than mic'ing an acoustic kit. I consider this an indispensable tool for the home studio. It has been one of my best gear purchases. Up there with my Les Paul, 5150 and pro tools software. An exclusive club indeed. The trigger IO has lots of control and parameters that makes personalization of dynamics really nice. I only have one real gripe about it. and its that the high hat foot controller does not allow for a continuous, analog like sound that real high hats offer. There are quantifiable steps, at least with in my experience triggering EZDrummer.YMMV. But considering the price, these can't be beat. Makes programming midi fun and easy. No more penciling or fumbling with a keyboard controller.
