The Alesis Trigger IO is a powerful new electronic percussion interface designed to bridge the gap between the ultimate control and feel of a real drum performance and the extensive capability of software and hardware sound modules. The Trigger IO converts playing from your favorite percussion interface, whether electronic drum pads or acoustic drum triggers, into MIDI note messages.
Featuring both MIDI out and USB connectivity, the Alesis Trigger I/O can be used to play sounds on synths, drum modules, or on your computer - straight from your drumkit. Bundled with FXPansion’s BFD Lite - a professional software drum module with high-quality acoustic and electronic drum kit libraries - the Trigger IO will get you up and rocking in no time.
With ten trigger inputs and its versatile MIDI out functions, the Trigger I/O is the perfect interface for musicians who want to expand the scope of their current equipment to include control over computers, samplers, synths, or other MIDI modules. Its intuitive interface and 20 programmable presets allow for easy setup and quick user operation. Plus, the bundled FXPansion BFD Lite software provides an additional source of creative material.
The Alesis Trigger IO can be used by any percussionist at any level in their home, studio, or during a live performance to control various software and hardware sound modules, all while maintaining the feel of a real percussion performance. Additionally, the mounting holes for an optional drum stand mount make the Trigger IO adaptable to any environment.
