Hi, my name is Rich and I did search for Alesis forums. I actually returned a DM10, because I liked my DM5 better. Even though it's simpler, I couldn't justify spending the money for the DM10, for features I didn't need.
I just picked up a DM Pro, and I am now using the DM5, DM Pro and a Trigger I/O all together. It seems to be the ultimate set-up for me now. I get a variable hi-hat and effects from the Pro and I can go USB to my PC, from the I/O.
Now I just need a Linear Flash Card, so I can load my own samples into the Pro. Can anyone tell me where to look for the best price on a card? Also, am I right, that the Linear Flash card is what I need to load samples? I got all my info from internet searches.
