The Alesis Trigger I/O is a powerful new electronic percussion interface designed to bridge the gap between the ultimate control and feel of a real drum performance and the extensive capability of software and hardware sound modules.

The Alesis Trigger I/O is a powerful new electronic percussion interface designed to bridge the gap between the ultimate control and feel of a real drum performance and the extensive capability of software and hardware sound modules. The Trigger I/O converts playing from your favorite percussion interface, whether electronic drum pads or acoustic drum triggers, into MIDI note messages. Featuring both MIDI out and USB connectivity, the Trigger I/O can be used to play sounds on synths, drum modules, or on your computer – straight from your drumkit.

        Comments about Alesis Trigger iO Electronic Percussion Interface:

        This thing is useless.It didnt come with the advertised software for one, and the only outputs are midi and usb.The only thing it would be useful for is an exspantion for dual zones on an older module.Its worthless as a stand alone for anyone giging unless you want to drag along a computer and hope the house sound system at the venue will interface with it.
