Product Description

The Trigger iO is the easiest way to connect electronic drum and cymbal pads or acoustic drum triggers to a wide range of MIDI sound sources. Use up to ten trigger inputs to play traditional MIDI devices like drum machines, sound modules and synthesizers, or connect the USB output directly to your computer to play software drum modules or lay down tracks in your favorite MIDI sequencer application. You can capture every nuance of your drumming performance into the MIDI world using the Trigger iO.

Featuring both USB-MIDI and traditional DIN MIDI connectivity, you can use the Trigger iO with a wide variety of gear. The inteface has ten TRS trigger inputs so you can use it with single or dual-zone pads and triggers, and even split the inputs with Y-cables for even larger custom setups. You can also use the Trigger iO to expand the pad inputs of virtually and drum module from any manufacturer.

The Trigger iO has a hi-hat control input that works with both continuous and switch-style hi-hat pedals so you can deliver all of the open-to-closed detail you're used to on the hi-hat. It also has a footswitch input for controlling other parameters like changing kits with your foot.

You can create up to 20 setups and store them in the Trigger iO's memory. Advanced customizable programming capabilities include sensitivity, MIDI-channel assignment, note number, crosstalk, velocity curve, threshold, retrigger time and pad type. The Trigger iO works plug-and-play with Mac and PC, and is powered by its USB connection when working with a computer. You can also wall-power it when working with non-USB MIDI sound sources.

You can mount the Trigger iO on virtually stand or rack using the optional E-Percussion Module Mount and integrate it cleanly into your drum set or percussion setup. The Trigger iO comes with EZdrummer software drum module from Toontrack. EZdrummer has samples of real drum kits, a virtual mixer, and looping functions.

The Trigger iO enables you to play virtually any MIDI software or hardware with your electronic drum kit.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (28 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A Drum Trigger Controller that Works!"
Sound: It's a MIDI Trigger - there is no sound, but as a trigger controller, it has excellent flexibility, sensitivity adjustments, plenty of adjustments for cross-talk, re-triggering, etc. As someone else noted, would like to see a software program so these settings can be adjusted via a computer and SysEx recorded. Doing everything with 2 up/down buttons gets tiring, and harder to remember when you have multiple set-ups for different drum modules. Feature: Like having TRS on all trigger inputs, and plenty of them. All metal boxing, with good rubber buttons (ala DM-4). Ease of Use: Pretty easy to get the settings correct, once you get a solid MIDI kit set that has the base sounds you want to work with. Quality: Very well made - like having USB powered as an option (one less wall-wort adapter around). Wish the rack mount portion was made of light aluminum or steel, but the composite used was fine. Value: Unless you find a used DM-4 or older multi-input module around (which do not have as much adjustment flexibility), you won't beat the value for what it does. Manufacturer Support: Alesis is by musicians, for musicians. It helps a lot. Overall: Will use this for years to get lots more mileage out of the triggers that came with my Logitech Wii Wireless drum set. Have easily added regular pads and cymbals from Yamaha and Roland, and everything works great!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
