How Do I Trigger Notes With My Trigger Finger?

Maybe this one is simple enough that I should be able to figure it out on my own.

But can someone guide me through setting up my M-audio trigger finger so that I can trigger the notes of an XRNI with the pads?

I know how to set the knobs and sliders to control the program, but I can’t seem to figure out how to set up the beat pad part of it.

Any tips?

Your pads should be sending notes by default somewhere about middle C. MAke sure your device is noticed in the preferences pane. MAke sure your samples are mapped to an appropriate range of notes. Can you enter notes in the editor by pushing the pads? Does the midi in light flash when you hit a pad?

I figured out what the issue was. And that was what I figured too, that it should be sending the notes. What the issue was is that the device would stop sending notes if I jiggled the USB cable on the device end because I’ve been using a different USB cable than it came with. That is all. Fix’d. Lame.
