This provides a great way to control and trigger sounds with the playability of a keyboard. Many keyboard controllers will have extra features such as trigger pads, modulation wheels and control knobs
  • Drum Pads and kits – Available as standalone drum controllers or as a feature of a MIDI keyboard, drum pads are pressed and hit with the fingers to trigger a sound. Drum controllers often feature a variety of controls making it easy to sculpt different drum tones
