Default Re: Getting started with drum triggers

On the off-chance you meant drum triggers, as in placing trigger sensors on a regular drum kit; they need to connect to a trigger to midi interface, as made by Ddrums and alesis, or most any old E-drum brain like a Roland TD5, 7, 9, 10, 20, etc. The brain would be connected to your system via midi cable or USB(depending on how new it is. Both work fine). Then you create a midi instrument in PT>setup>Midi>Midi studio. Call up a stereo Instrument track and insert a drum VI(like EZdrummer), put the track in record-ready and hit the drums. You SHOULD be hearing the plugin drum sounds, if the pad-note assignment is correct
