Thanks for the info! The heads up on features is a great help! I did a search and found Alesis trigger I/O but it looks to me that it doesn't provide cymbal chokes... which means a no-go for me...
Am I correct on this? If so, does anyone here have a rec on what other midi to usb trigger box I should look at that does provide chokes, etc.
