In this video, Mark Knights talks about both his and Toolroom Records' involvement in the development of the M-Audio Trigger Finger Pro USB controller. He can be seen working with it in his studio throughout the video. Mark says: "When I was first introduce to Trigger Finger Pro, what got me excited about the product with the fact that you could get ideas down very quickly. It’s instant vibe. With other pad based controllers, they often had you jumping through their own hoops to get to the same point. With Trigger Finger Pro, it’s a lot simpler. With the 16 step sequencer and the pads, you always got options. The workflow works with you. When we realized this is a special product, we knew as Toolroom we really wanted to be involved in the development. What we wanted to achieve was to deliver a product that was loaded with the most cutting-edge, sonically dynamic sample lobbies on the market today. Both myself, and some of the leading talent here at Toolroom have worked really hard in the preparation to empower you with the tools to make a hit record."more
It's a remake of their older brother 'Trigger Finger'. What comes with the controller is a bonus. 8 GB of sounds, kits from Loopmaster, Anomaly and various genres industrial sounds!
There's always a decision. Too open and hard to program or easy to play and close to programming.
I use the Trigger Finger to practice my drumming skills and also use it to compose drum rhythm sequences with it from scratch.
