I performed a piece of mine for the first time today. I’m using an Alesis Control Pad in the setup right now (because it’s cheap) and stick noise is a bit of a problem.
I know there are units from Roland and Alesis that will take the 1/4" output from any MIDI drum pad (i.e. V-Drums) and convert it into generic MIDI information that can be used by Max, but the pads with mesh type heads are pretty damn expensive. Any ideas for relatively inexpensive percussion-type triggers that are also very responsive? I suppose I can probably try building something at some point, but was just curious if anyone had any suggestions.
