    Hi Keith,

    I bought an M-Audio 'Trigger Finger' few years ago, nice bit of kit with the ability to apply it as a VST instrument in my DAW using various sample kits. These days I rarely use it, due to my Novation Impulse keyboard which gives me 8 trigger pads on the device.. if i'm feeling the need to tap something in and trigger some samples.

    If you're in need of a particular sound like the Hip Hop classic EMU SP1200 you can probably find most classic drum machine sample libraries and produce them how you want in the box; so I would look at options for triggering drum samples from one of the many software choices out there like 'Battery' , Addictive Drums etc.

    "The times... they are a changin"

    All the best
