Re: Looking for a low cost brain
If you're on a budget below $200, I'd suggest saving a bit more and springing for something like a Pearl Redbox used (for about $350). In your price range at the moment, the only thing I've seen is the Ddrum module (DD1?), but I'm not too sure it has a variable hi-hat.
A VST is a virtual instrument, like Superior Drummer or BFD. It is hosted by a computer or a DAW, such as Cubase, Sonar or Samplitude. You can trigger sounds in a VST using midi signals from your drum brain.
