    Hi all,

    So recently i bought Toontrack's Superior Drummer 2.
    I record guitars, bass and vocals, but i sample the drums. (not enough space for drum recording)
    SD2 sounds great in what it is, but i still dont have a midi controller, so i cant do anything.
    What is the best way to sample the drums through midi? Should i buy a small keyboard, or a pad?

    thanks in advance,

    i can't speak to a Pad really but it seems like a waste. To me it's a decent electric kit as trigger or a midi keybork.

    i would use a midi keyboard. it's much cheaper than a electronic kit (which takes as much practice as a real drum kit) and you can use it for synths and other sounds too.

    i would not use a keyboard to trigger drums as you need to have control over velocity and dynamic to make the your drum patterns sound and feel as natural as possible. i would use a drum percussion pad such as alesis or roland. your performance will translate well on these and are more comfortable than a keyboard.
