I started playing with Beep Street's Impaktor (beepstreet.com) on my desk. Then I moved to the floor so I could trigger it with my tabla. I was having so much fun I added in TC-11 (bitshapesoftware.com) for some extra flavor.
Impaktor makes use of the mic input to trigger drum modeling synthesis. Its responsiveness makes it an incredible tool for percussionists. The TC-11 patch is a variation on Northern Lights, tuned to the tabla and Impaktor.
