    Ddrum triggers

    Does anyone use them here? I would like to trigger a sampled sound from my Bass drum and wondered if they can trigger a standard drum machine (I have an Alesis Performance Pad) Or do I have to get the Ddrum sound module? How have you guys used them? do they work well? etc etc
