16 velocity-sensitive pads, plus 8 knobs and 4 faders.

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.

M-Audio Trigger Finger Customer Review
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
I am very happy with this product.
doesn't have any drum sounds but i use some quality samples from my PC
features everything that the MPD has and then some.
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
more features and better feel than MPD-16.....but lower price.....
