Best way to trigger drum samples
Hi. Does anyone have advice on this? I'm looking for a way to trigger drum samples that's musical, not a PITA, works live and in the studio, and costs less than $500. I like the idea of using triggers on my acoustic drums since the drums can be replaced or augmented. But I have no idea how accurate that is or which trigger set would be the best. I don't play anything complicated or highly technical, but I do like dynamic range a lot. Does using triggers on acoustic drums work well and which set, or should I go with a midi trigger pad unit? Electronic drums are probably out of my price range, but if using acoustic drums doesn't work well, I might consider it. I'll probably be using Native Instruments kits if that matters. Thanks.
