Josh Fifelski wrote in to share about DrēmTrigger, a new 2-pad drum trigger that uses a contactless sensor.

It features onboard processing, comes with 32GB memory, and it works as a MIDI controller or standalone.


Let’s be real, Musicians are some of the pickiest and opinionated people on the planet – and I’m one of them. So when I couldn’t find a quality drum trigger to save my life, I decided to do something about it- so I built DrēmTrigger.

Unlike traditional drum triggers, DrēmTrigger offers drummers the ability to load samples and loops directly onto the device without the need of an external drum module. In addition to 32GB of memory, DrēmTrigger features a rechargeable battery, a high-speed processor, onboard controls and to top it all off, advanced sensing technology making DrēmTrigger the first ever stand-alone drum trigger.

We’re using Kickstarter as a vehicle for those who believe in our product, to get in early and before anyone else. We’ve already completed the prototyping stage and now are well into our production develop for a road-ready, tour-ready, show-ready unit.

Your support will help us reach our goals to complete the development of DrēmTrigger and get it into the hands of drummers all over the world.
