I have developed a simple electronic drumset for sale to interested computer/music enthusiasts. It consists of a custom MIDI trigger interface and a percussion pad set with two foot pedals. If interested, drop me some e-mail. I'm username yerpa58 at the server named gmail.com
The prototype is workable. It is fun to use even in its unfinished state. Since I haven't exactly been overwhelmed by e-mail, I'll just keep plugging along at my own snail-like pace.

Holy cow its 27 FEB 2002 and I'm back at it. I got one of those gas-powered soldering irons and was looking for something to burn! So, I put the two foot pedals together and wired 'em up. They work well but the MIDI assignments are crap, one of them is a scratchboard sound and the other is some kind of snare drum. I guess patching that will be next.
February 2012 Ruminations (like cows do): When I first developed it back in 1997, decent drum voice modules to connect to my MIDI sensors were nearly $1000 each. Now they are under $100. It is no wonder that the people I contacted in 1997 were leery about funding me back then. But it wasn't a waste. I still use the damn thing!
