Those on Ebay are very cheap, which makes me skeptical - should I be about this make? I was expecting to not find anything good under a couple of hundred.

lots of drummers use D4 and the higher Alesis modules too. http://www.derekroddy.com has a good forum which is a good place to look for info on this stuff :wink:

Rightyo, cheers... I'll wait for a UK seller to appear selling it on Ebay though first.

Either D4 or DM5 are good for the price, and they are used by a lot of extreme metal drummers nowadays. I've used both, and the only difference is the sounds (DM5 slightly more realistic) but both have usable sounds.

i was always under the impression that you could set your own recorded sounds to the triggers

The only way to do that is to buy an expensive drum brain with sampling capability like an alesis dmpro (discontinued, but there are others around with this function) or use brain to make the midi and a pc based sampler to play back the sounds, or get a standalone sampler.

On 'Worlds...' i triggered my drums using my DM5 and recorded the midi alongside the audio. We then used samples i put together for the triggered sounds and triggered them in the computer using battery (computer sampler), instead of simply recording the audio out from the brain.

The actual audio output of the triggers wasn't recorded, but the beats were recorded as midi, and then used to trigger samples on the pc is basically what I think Leon means.
This is how we're planning at the moment to record the Sarpanitum album.
