Drumpad that sends pressure or poly-aftertouch CC data?

Post by cabletone » Sat Sep 04, 2010 2:40 pm

I have a setup that needs CC data from pads to control remote assignments in Live. Right now I am using the Trigger Finger as it transmits CC from the pads. When I developed this setup a couple years ago the TF was the only drumpad that did this.

I am wondering if there are any new controllers that do this? Aftertouch would be ok I think as I can convert it to CCs but it would have to be poly as I use several pads at one time. (Though I would be surprised if any drum pads transmit poly aftertouch..)

AKAI MPD24 does this. Don't know about their other models, but I would expect them to behave similarly. You can check the manuals online.

So does the Trigger Finger, I believe.

The pads on the M-Audio Axiom interfaces do (have two); both of the Roland Handsonics do (used both).

The Korg Nanopdad (have one) and the PadKontrol do not, though aftertouch can reportedly be assigned to the X/Y pad.
