Trigger Finger puts the power to program and perform expressive percussion and drum parts at your fingertips.

Its 16 velocity-sensitive pads are perfect for playing the drum sounds in your favorite software, launching loops and samples, or even controlling video projections—and applying pressure to the pads can generate any MIDI controller you wish.

Trigger Finger also gives you 8 knobs and 4 faders that are freely assignable to MIDI parameters such as volume, pan, pitch, and effects. Pre-programmed maps for Reason, Live, GM Drum, XG Drum, iDrum, and more make setup a snap—and full programmability lets you customize the unit to fit your needs.

Settings are easy to store via 16 presets, and M-Audio’s free Enigma librarian software for PC and Mac lets you create a collection of even more. A simple USB cable is all it takes to connect and power Trigger Finger with your computer. It’s time to take full control of your drum programming—and Trigger Finger is the right tool for the job.

Easy Setup

Getting up and running with Trigger Finger is a total no-brainer. The unit is bus-powered, so a simple USB connection to your computer handles it all. Class-compliancy with Windows XP and Mac OS X means there are no drivers to install. You also get pre-programmed maps for Live, Reason, GM Drum, XG Drum, iDrum, and more for instant control over most popular software.

Control Anything You Want

While our main focus in designing Trigger Finger was drum programming, full programmability means that you can use it to control any MIDI devices you wish. Launch Clips or Scenes in Ableton Live, trigger video clips in VJ software, or fire off samples in your favorite DJ software—or anything else you can think of. There’s even a MIDI Out jack that let’s you connect external MIDI gear.

On-Board Memory, Online Storage

What’s programmability without storage ability? Trigger Finger features 16 presets for storing your setups right on board. Your purchase also gets you a free copy of M-Audio’s Enigma librarian software for PC and Mac for virtually unlimited storage that works with your other M-Audio and Evolution gear as well.

You’re in Control

Trigger Finger is designed to put you in full command of your drum programming sessions. 16 pads give you immediate access to plenty of drum sounds or other events you wish to trigger.

You’ll find the pad size provides just the right balance of compact space and perfect touch. Speaking of perfect touch, Trigger Finger’s pads are both velocity- and pressure-sensitive—and, unlike many control surfaces, you can map the pressure sensitivity to any MIDI parameter you desire for that extra measure of expressive control.

Its 8 knobs and 4 faders are also fully assignable to any MIDI parameter you want. With Trigger Finger, you’re in control.

M-Audio Trigger Finger 16-Pad MIDI Control Surface Reviews


Trigger Finger

Only had it for a few weeks so can\'t give a full review, but so far it\'s a great piece of kit. Easy to set up and get recognised by your machine, music software etc...

Only used the supplied Enigma software to set the pad sensitivity to full, then got rid of it - useless program. Program the controller using the manual/online resources to your own specifications and you\'ll be away in no time!


M-Audi Trigger Finger

From reading much about this device I wanted to add it to my existing keyboards and strings system. Out of the box it was not as simple as I expected, failing to make a sound in my copy of Live 6. The web saved the day. I set the trigger finger to default to Live x 2 format and voila cracking good sounds.

I half expected the config to lapse after power off for a few days and was pleasenatly suprised to discover all was still there.

It is a great piece of kit, and as a disabled musician just what I need to pump out those beats. I strongly recomend the trigger finger and with Dolphin's great export service I am totally thrilled.

Trigger Finger Review

i had heard loads about the trigger finger and thought that it might be a great addition to my small computer based studio. The trigger finger is a straight out the box, usb contoller that can be used to programm drum parts and what i thought it was great at doing was programming bass parts in programms such as reason. i also use it to trigger samples and loops off within ableton live.

the trigger finger has four fully programmable sliders and eight fully programmable knobs to tweak parameters within programms like reason. What i found about the trigger finger is that, if you find you are not that claever at the keyboard, it may be difficult to programm harders drum parts into your sequencer.

Overall the trigger finger is a fantastic contoller, that has alot of "action" in my studio. I would reccomend that this product is considerd by any beginner or anyone who has a small based computer audio studio..
