SamplePad drum trigger compatibility

I bought the Alesis Samplepad used from a secondhand music store called Music Go-Round Ann Arbor and I love the product. Great sounds. I want to trigger the bass drum with an acoustic drum trigger from my acoustic bass drum. I own a Roland RT-30 bass drum trigger and it does not seem to be compatible. Am I correct? Are these two products not compatible? I plugged it into the drum trigger spot on the unit (which worked using a bass drum from an Alesis electronic kit but I was to use it with my acoustic bass drum). cannot find this answer anywhere on drum forums on the internet. Please help!!!

Hello, Jordan

Thanks for posting!

This trigger should work just fine, make sure you have your settings adjusted properly. Select TRIGGER if you are using a trigger for your kick drum as opposed to an electronic Kick Pad.

Hope this helps!
