Drum Pad as Input Device

By christinahaywood - 11/22/2015


I am designing an experiment and would like to use a Roland SPD-SX drum pad to record responses. The drum connects to a computer via USB. I was wondering if Inquisit would be able to record drum taps as the source of input. If so, what should I use as the input device?

It depends how the pad behaves specifically. AFAICT, it also installs itself as an USB audio interface, so you *might* be able to do something with /inputdevice = voicerecord or /inputdevice = voicekey.

Inquisit, however, will *not* be able to capture or use e.g. MIDI signals.
