Default MacBook & Alesis Trigger I/O Midi converter as electronic drums

Hey all,
I'm looking for a liitle help here. I just got a new MacBook and I've heard from several people that you can hook up an Alesis Trigger I/O Midi convertor with the included BFD lite or Easy Drummer, etc and essentially use it as a drum brain. I currently have a Roland TD-12 and an spd-s but I'm thinking this possibility could replace both of them. I use my electronic kit to practice regularly in my apartment so it would need to function as smoothly as a stand alone drum brain.
If anyone has any input on this or has done it themselves please let me know how it works out. I'd like some insight before I go selling off my TD-12 and Spd-s.
Thanks for any help.
JCB

Hello jcb,

Congrats on your new MacBook!

Thanks for the post with the link to that forum and the article. I think I'm going to have to give it a try. With how cheap the Alesis Trigger I/O Midi convertors (and included software) are, I don't think I have much to loose. I'll let you know how it works out after I get into it.
Thanks again,
JCB
