MIDI programmable Electronic Drum Kit

I hate trying to play drums patterns on a midi keyboard it's unnatural & I'm horrible at it I was looking at electronic drum kits that can be used as a MIDI input device & I can use my own Kontakt drums & just play them into my DAW. ThI went to Sam Ash & they said that the drums that can do that are $1000+ & I don't have that type of money. I heard you could mod a Guitar Hero/Rock Band Drum Set to play as a MIDI Controller but I didn't know if that was legal, so I was wondering if anyone knew of an affordable option

If you want a drum feel you gotta bite the bullet and buy a roland kit or an ekit of some type. There are many ways to do e-kits. YOu can go DIY route wit PVC pipes and such. If I where you and I would have done this had I not got bad advise that I could change the kick when you cant without a hack (roland HD-1), is get an Alesis Pro s/h which have ok heads or a s/h Roland if youve got a bit more. Then route the MIDI out and then there are mapping software or BFD and some midi plumbing and youll have a pretty tight set up- latency is always going to be an issue so lowest settings possible if you can. SDD;s come into there own here IMO
