Mentioned this November 2018 Drumhead Magazine article.
Drumhead had a chat with the band’s drummer, François Comtois, about a month before Mirror Master was released. (...) "And I love electronic drums. Being able to incorporate them into how I play…I have a few drum machines, and I love to pick off the samples, make them myself, and run them through the SPD-SX or trying to figure out a way to incorporate them with acoustic triggers, which I’ve used in the past, but the technology nowadays allows you to map the drumhead. It used to be the trigger would react to a certain threshold, and now it maps the entire drumhead into different zones, and each zone can do something different. Different velocities will do something different. I was always jealous of guitarists and keyboard players who have all these crazy options at their fingertips, and now I see this area starting to be explored a little more with drums. You start to see the drums as more of an instrument that can just keep a beat, and it’s nice to have that flexibility. But I never want to become too dependent on trigger sounds. I know bands that use the exact snare sound from the record for each song, and I think that can sometimes be distracting to the player if you’re going for something that sounds alive and is dynamic. So there’s a line I’m trying not to cross, but it’s fun experimenting."
