So we are really at the stage now where we feel we will be way more productive as a band, by starting to "record-write" the songs we do already have. (i.e start doing the production and re-write stuff AS you record them) and to make things alot simpler, we want to invest in a Digital drum kit to use midi programming in our DAW. (I have Ez drummer 2 and Superior Drummer) Just to get the hits in the right place and to know it can interact with the software properly via Midi, I was looking at Alesis. (all the midi signals are already assigned properly within the software once you choose Alesis from a drop down - simple) this seems the best bang for the buck they offer which also includes a kick drum tower so we can use our own Demon drive double kick with it. Even has 2 extra inputs if we want to enlarge the kit. Does anyone have any experience with this kit? and is there a better, cheaper version that includes a kick tower to just simply lay down midi beats for recording? OR shall we bite the bullet and just grab this?
