      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

TriggerFinger

8 posts in this topic

Hey ya'll, I've been making beats on my computer for awhile and now I'm thinking about stepping up to at the very least a midi controller. From what i've seen the triggerfinger looks like the best buy for me. Objections? Suggestions? Thanks ya'll.

Yeah, man ... Either that or the padKontrol. They're both official.

The pads on the Trigger Finger are ok, but if you want really great responsive pads, get either a PadKontrol, an LPD8, or get an MPD (and upgrade the pads in the case of MPD).

If you have extra cash to spend and are low on USB ports, also consider an MPK 25 or 49.

Personally, I would avoid the Trigger Finger, and get the best controller you can’t afford....

The MPD upgraded with the thick pads and new sensors is nuts ...

Yeah, it takes the MPD32 from being an OK controller to a truly awesome controller.

If anyone is doing it with layers of tape, I would advise them to experiment with layers of tape until they get it just right, i.e you only have to lightly tap the pads, but you don’t get stuck or duplicate notes either.

Depending on the thickness of the tape you use, it could be anything from 2 to 10 layers to get it perfect.
