M-Audio has introduced
Trigger Finger, a mobile device used to trigger and program drum sounds. It’s also suitable for use with Ableton Live to trigger clips and scenes, or for activating video clips by VJs and sounds in DJ software. Trigger Finger connects to a Mac or PC using USB and can trigger other MIDI devices using a MIDI Out jack.
The device features 16 velocity and pressure-sensitive pads, eight knobs and four faders. All the inputs are assignable to any MIDI parameters including volume, pan, pitch and effects. Trigger Finger includes pre-programmed maps for Live, Reason and other software; M-Audio’s Enigma’s librarian software helps users store settings. Trigger Finger is compatible with Mac OS X v10.2.8 or higher and supports Core MIDI. It’s shipping this month for US$249.95.
