Best sampler/trigger pad?
im looking into getting a pad that i can play custom samples with sticks on. im having trouble figuring out whats the best one for me though. price is an issue, i want something under 500, but i also want to be able to use it live without a computer. also i dont care whatsoever about how the built in drum sounds are because i wont use them, i just want to trigger sounds that i made, but also play with sticks.
im thinking of the alesis performance pad, but im not sure if it can store custom sounds without being hooked up via MIDI. anyone know?
