    I wanted to find out if there is a way to use my Korg Triton Le with a trigger on drums?
    The drum sounds are really phat on the Triton and I wanted to use a trigger when I record.
    Anybody doing something simular to this already? :mrgreen:

    for live or as a post edit thing ?
    live the midi latency/delay might be disapointing

    as a post edit thing ... D4 will convert the drums to midi notes and then map them to your Triton sounds

    Not live use. Mainly for recording. Please let me know what you mean by "D4". And it would help if you could tell me a little about how to go about "mapping them" to the Triton.

    The D4 is an Alesis drum module. IT has inputs for triggers and converts them to a midi signal. You can then plug your keyboard into that or just record directly to midi then assign that track to your triton's drum sounds. I have used that in the past as well as the DM5. The sounds on them are kind of weak in my opinion but the interface is very good for getting the midi into your computer for whatever use you have.

    Ohhhhh, Alesis D4......Holy $*^t!
    I remember when those first hit the market. Arent they like 10 years old or more? People are still using them? I will check them out.

    There is a device by Roland called a TMC6. It is a trigger to MIDI converter; It will allow you to hook up triggers to the Triton LE and then assign them to specific notes.

    Your other option as afore mentioned is to get hold of something like an Alesis D4, Roland TD6 etc... You will need something that has trigger inputs.

    Thanks man, that's just what I needed to hear. I will look at the Roland also.
    How good are these drum sounds on all these machines, I like what I hear from the Triton (drum sounds) but I was hoping they will be as good if not better.

    you missed the point

    Even where recording ... you are live !
    I may use samples of other drum modules
    when recording I monitor the Alesis D4 sounds as the latency is to great via midi/software/reason/modules etc ...
    the Alesis sounds are just used to listen too WHILE recording and then in the Post Edit I can do what I want.

    Total Post Edit is when I have a recording of a real kit and then use the triggers to creat a Midi file or track...
    then map the keys to any other unit ... re-map or key-map

    you will find a few post on this subject down in the Sound and Rhythm section

    hope that makes sense
