The latest episode of Sonic State’s Sonic Lab is a review of the M-Audio Trigger Finger Pro, an MPC-style MIDI controller.
Host Nick Batt takes a look at the new MPC-style MIDI controller, introduced at this year’s NAMM Show.
The Trigger Finger Pro is a portable, 16-pad (4×4 configured) instrument with onboard sequencing. The Trigger Finger Pro draws from its predecessor’s performance pad roots, but features significantly improved hardware design and additional features.
The Trigger Finger Pro comes with Arsenal – a virtual drum machine app that can be used within your DAW or standalone. Along with AIR Drums and Hybrid 3 plug-ins, Trigger Finger Pro includes 8 GB of ready-to-play sounds, loops, one-shots with content from Black Anomaly, Prime Loops, Toolroom Records, and more.
It also offers an onboard step sequencer and hardware MIDI out, so you can use the Trigger Finger Pro to sequence hardware synths in sync with software beats.
The Trigger Finger Pro has a street price of US $399.
