Product Description

Trigger Finger puts the power to program and perform expressive percussion and drum parts at your fingertips. Its 16 velocity-sensitive pads are perfect for playing the drum sounds in your favorite software, launching loops and samples, or even controlling video projections -- and applying pressure to the pads can generate any MIDI controller you wish. Trigger Finger also gives you 8 knobs and 4 faders that are freely assignable to MIDI parameters such as volume, pan, pitch, and effects. Pre-programmed maps for Reason, Live, GM Drum, XG Drum, iDrum, and more make setup a snap -- and full programmability lets you customize the unit to fit your needs. Settings are easy to store via 16 presets, and M-Audio's free Enigma librarian software for PC and Mac lets you create a collection of even more. A simple USB cable is all it takes to connect and power Trigger Finger with your computer. It's time to take full control of your drum programming -and Trigger Finger is the right tool for the job.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. M-Audio Trigger Finger Customer Review
Sound: doesn't have any drum sounds but i use some quality samples from my PC Feature: features everything that the MPD has and then some. Quality: it feels better than the AKAI MPD. for what I use this thing, i do not need an MPC 1000 etc. I have thousands of samples on my computer and i can use those. what the MPC does is takes away the need of a computer. I use a computer to produce so i am very happy with my trigger finger Value: more features and better feel than MPD-16.....but lower price..... Manufacturer Support: never needed The Wow Factor: its a must have for computer producers Overall: I am very happy with this product.
Style of Music: Hip-hop, r&b, pop, rock, etc.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Instructions how to set the trigger finger up with reason"
Sound: No problems with it playing extra notes so far Feature: Came with everything it needed except for decent documentation and the 'Enigma' was not of any use to me because it's not very well documented. For instance, I have no idea how to set the global midi channel using enigma and it's nowhere in the help file. I found it much easier to set it all up just using the TF's physical buttons. Ease of Use: Once you set it up it's simple, but getting it to work in reason was a long process. Here's what worked for me because I've seen a lot of other people on other sites asking how to do it. To get trigger finger working in reason set the global midi channel to 1. To do this press 'save & exit' and 'exit' at the same time to enter edit mode. Use the channel slider to select channel 1. Press 'save & exit' and then hit a pad to save it. Then to assign the right notes to the pads enter edit mode again and hit pad 1 and use the 'note' knob to set it to C1. (not C.1 which is c#1). That sets it to your bass drum. Press 'save&exit' again and press pad 1 to save your setting. Before you define the rest of the notes, get it working with reason. Go into Preferences->Control Surfaces and add the trigger finger as if it were a regular keyboard. Set it to be the master keyboard. At this point DO NOT press anything on the TF because it may cause reason to freeze. Instead close reason and restart it and make a redrum and set the midi keyboard to point to it and you should be able to make the kick play using pad 1. If it works, go through the rest of the pads and set them to the right notes (c1, c.1, d1, d.1, ...) and save your settings and you should be ready to go. It is also possible to set it up not on channel 1 via the Reason midi bus at the top of the rack. That doesn't work very well because then it seems you can't record midi events into the sequencer. Quality: Definitely not built like a tank but for $150 I wasn't expecting it to be indestructible. It's made of plastic and if I were going to take it on the road I would be very careful to wrap it up in lots and lots of padding. Value: They dropped the ball on adding support for reason. They claim on the web site that you don't need drivers to get it to work... but in the box there IS a driver disk. Manufacturer Support: Didn't have to contact them. The Wow Factor: It's pretty cool now that it works, it's definitely a set up from banging drums on the keyboard. Overall: I like how it looks and feels. The software support for reason was nowhere near as simple as M-Audio claims though.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

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.
