trigger pads with footpedal
« on: April 23, 2020, 02:25:25 pm »
hi, i have been playing accoustic drums for year, recently brought a drumbrute impact and have had a lot of fun. As a drummer i would love to be able to trigger the bass drum with a foot pedal. Has anyone done this? any advice on what i'd need. E drum pedals seem to have a audio cable as out put, is there an affordable way to convert this to a midi signal?

would this work? 

http://www.midisolutions.com/prodfsw.htm it says

The MIDI Solutions Footswitch Controller provides a 1/4" phone jack input for connection to a footswitch or contact closure which can be used to trigger MIDI events. Triggered MIDI events are merged with incoming MIDI messages and sent to the MIDI output of the Footswitch Controller.
Triggered event types are programmable and include:
Note, Control Change, Pitch Bend, Program Change, Start/Stop, System Exclusive

would it be Note trigger i want? to trigger bass drum.

cheers. peter

Hello,
This is very interesting but you probably should ask MidiSolution directly.
I'll be interested by the answer also  ;)
