Trigger Finger Drum Roll Help!!!!

HI guys...I just got a Trigga finger (Duh!!!) ... On the M-Audio site there is a demo video of its perfomance capabilities. I need the know how the velocity sensitive feature works on it. The guy on the video shows really cool drum rolls with this feature which could be great not just for drums but any sample...vocal cuts , 303 sounds etc. PLease Help

AFAIK it works like any other drum pad trigger. It outputs midi data. The midi data you use will mainly be the note and velocity data.

It's totally up to the midi device you are triggering as to what it does with that midi data.

What I find useful is to assign two pads to the same sample. Often I use a symmetrical keypad layout for this. Then you can play the same drum sample with two fingers, which makes rolls and flams very easy and natural.

But there probably is software out there that can do automatic rolls, if you like that sort of thing.

I don't know if it sends midi Aftertouch data - I would be surprised. That's like pad pressure data, but it wouldn't be of much use to drums, just synth stuff. A look at the midi implementation chart would confirm that - or just record a track of you pressing a pad, and look for any continuous controller midi events.

Thx :)

Thats a good tip... i started experimenting with Battery 3, i think i'm getting somewhere . i'll have the details up as soon as i figure it out. I makes it much simpler and fun if u can play your drum pads as real drums. Thx again .. although i know for sure that iDrum has what i'm looking for but im not sucha great fan of it....
