Default Help with acoustic drum triggers?


I'm new to the whole acoustic drum triggering, but I've been wanting to trigger my bass drum for the longest time. I play in a death metal band and my band has finally rented out a studio where we can play. We purchased one of these the other day, Behringer Europower

I was wondering if its possible to connect an ION iDM02 24-bit Stereo Drum Machine w/ trigger inputs (which was originally for a small electric kit) to an acoustic bass drum trigger that would run through our p.a? I haven't purchased a drum trigger yet and was wondering if this set up would work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Help with acoustic drum triggers?

if the ion brain has audio outputs that can connect to the europower (1/4" TS or balanced xlr) the answer to your question is YES. I'm not familiar with the Ion though, i think it's basically an entry level brain so your big issue is tracking your aftermarket acoustic trigger with it (it's specifically calibrated to work with ion pads). I don't know if the brain has adjustibility in regards to v-curve/ gain/ xtalk/ noise, etc
I don't want to work, I just want to bang on the drums all day!
