M-Audio Trigger Finger

M-Audio has announced , a USB-based device for easily triggering and programming drum sounds. The unit can also be used to trigger Clips and Scenes in Ableton Live, video clips in VJ software and sounds in popular DJ programs. "Trigger Finger puts the power to program and perform expressive percussion and drum parts at users' fingertips. At its heart are 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads designed to trigger computer- or hardware-based drum sounds with full expression." Trigger Finger also delivers 8 knobs and 4 faders that are freely assignable to any MIDI parameters, such as volume, pan, pitch, and effects. It will ship later this month for $250.

Trigger Finger incorporates pre-programmed maps for Live, Reason, GM Drum, XG Drum, iDrum and more that make setup a snap--and full programmability lets users customize anything they want. Settings are easy to store via 16 memory presets or M-Audio's free Enigma librarian software for PC and Mac. Trigger Finger can derive its power from the USB bus or a DC adapter and also includes a MIDI Out jack, which allows it to trigger external MIDI devices as well. It requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 and supports Core MIDI.
