There’s more options for finger drummers out there than ever right now, and M-Audio fairly recently released their new Trigger Finger Pro. The more I see about this controller the more I like it. This video shows a great performance using all the original samples that come with the unit. The nice big display screen is definitely a nice feature and the built in step sequencer is a very cool feature.
The only controller that seems to be in the same league as the TFP one is the Maschine, which is an amazing product. But the Maschine MK2 is $599, where as the TFP is only $199. I can’t comment on the feel of the pads themselves since I haven’t used one personally. But from what I have seen they look like nice sized pads and most comments about them have been good.
