M-Audio introduces "Trigger Finger Pro" USB Controller with Step Sequencer (+Arsenal software)
23rd January 2014
M-Audio has announced the debut of Trigger Finger Pro, an advanced performance pad controller with onboard sequencing and software integration.
Here's what they say:
Trigger Finger Pro is a fully encompassed performance instrument and software control station in the form of a portable, 16-pad (4x4 configured) instrument with onboard sequencing. Nearly a decade ago, M-Audio revolutionized the industry by introducing the first performance pad controller and effectively set the stage for the MIDI controller market with the Trigger Finger. The Trigger Finger Pro draws from its predecessor's performance pad roots but features an entirely new hardware design, user experience, and creative functionality to serve both the live performer as well as the music producer. Its modern design features 16 ultra-responsive RGB illuminated pads, 16 backlit step sequencer key controls, a road-ready chassis with brushed aluminum faceplate, and a high resolution screen.
The all-new Arsenal software integrates with popular DAWs, hosts VST plug-ins and includes automatic mapping, providing seamless integration between the hardware and software. Along with AIR Drums and Hybrid 3 plug-ins, Trigger Finger Pro includes 8 GB of ready-to-play sounds, loops, one-shots with exclusive content from Black Anomaly, Prime Loops, Toolroom Records, and more.
"We're excited with the Trigger Finger Pro because it offers true hands-on control for today's multi-talented musicians who require software integration as part of their live performances – and we're equally thrilled with its place in the studio environment providing seamless DAW integration," said M-Audio Product Manager JC Sutherland. "The addition of the new onboard M-Audio Arsenal software makes for a powerful package onstage or in the studio."
Trigger Finger Pro will be available Spring 2014, distributed worldwide with a $399 USD street.
M-Audio will unveil Trigger Finger Pro in Hall A, Booth 6700, at the 2014 NAMM Show, January 23-26 in Anaheim, California.
