  Velocity sensing trigger interface for musical instrument - Patent 5824938
The present invention relates to a velocity sensing trigger interface for musical instruments, and more particularly, to a velocity sensitive drum or key pad interface with a cantilever beam mechanism which permits the switch actuators of the trigger interface to be separated by a distance which increases the velocity sensitivity.
Conventionally, the musical instrument includes a drum pad or keypad which is used to actuate a switch which, in turn, triggers the generation of a sound corresponding to that drum pad or keypad.
More sophisticated musical instruments also sense the velocity of the depression of the drum pad or keypad by the musician and this velocity data is used to appropriately modify the timbre, amplitude, and other characteristics of the generated sound.

 Sampler (musical instrument)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A sampler is an electronic musical instrument that can record and store audio signal samples, generally recordings of existing sounds, and play them back at a range of pitches.
An early form of sampler was an instrument called the 'Mellotron' (later Novatron due to licensing issues) which used individual pre-recorded tape loops, one under each key on the keyboard.
The emergence of the digital sampler made sampling far more practical, and as samplers added progressively more digital processing to their recorded sounds, they began to merge into the mainstream of modern digital synthesizers.

The 16-note polyphonic keyboard referred to in the previous example might also (but need not) be "6-voice multitimbral," meaning that it is capable of reproducing the sounds of a piano, a flute, a bass guitar, a trumpet, a violin and a kazoo at the same time, either at the same pitch or different pitches.
In a literal sense, a synthesizer is an instrument that generates all of its sonic raw material electronically, by means of a series of oscillators, amplifiers and filters, whereas the term sampler refers to a device that digitally records real sounds (e.g., piano, violin, bass guitar, snare drum) and plays them back at different pitches.

Samplers are a mainstay in just about every type of music production, from hip-hop to film soundtracks.
However, the software sampler has to store the first part of each sample in RAM in order to be able to respond instantly when you play the keyboard, so you'll still need plenty of memory.
Now that samplers have enough memory to play long samples without looping, the technique of sample looping is more often used for playing phrase loops, such as drum beats and bass riffs.
