I have been using a keybaord to control my BFD drums for about a year, and I find that it negatively affects my drum creativity due to the inconvenience to use and the more unnatural feel compared to real drums.
I think getting a midi controller that is set up like a drm pad will help solve this quite a bit. There's a bunch of kinds though, by Yamaha, Roland, and many others and I don't know what to look for or get. I just need a basic one that will do the job so i'm not looking to spend a lot on it.
Any ideas or suggestions?
