Re: triggering samples
A Boss RC-20 can store 10 loops, and one "one-shot" sample, for a total of
11 samples, with five minutes to recording time (total). You could trigger
from that and leave some silence at the end of the sample for you to stop
so it wouldn't loop. This is probably your least expensive option. The
next cheapest would be to buy an older sampler (think Akai S-series, or
Yamaha A-series), and a MIDI controller of some kind. Then, if you want to
spend a bunch of money, buy a laptop with Ableton Live!.
