Cheap drum trigger for your modular...
Robert Trelease just posted the following on the Blacet list. I thought it might be interesting to those of you that have modulars but aren't on that list:
The Blacet 2225 I/O works great for producing analog percussion and
bell sounds with inexpensive professional drum triggers.
I've gotten great results from a Pintech RS-5T drum trigger (~$23)
mounted on a 6" Remo Practice Pad (~$13). The TT3 trigger trap
bracket had to be slightly modified (end tab cut off) to fit the
practice pad. The trigger output is a 1/4" jack, making for easy
cable connection to the I/O.
Best results were obtained with 100X amplification on the I/O 2225,
with gain and level set for reliable triggers and gating. It was
easy to set the levels for stick or hand drum play (way simpler than
on my Yamaha DD-5 digital drums).
Here's a link to the trigger at Musician's Friend. Any ol' practice pad should work.
