Who triggers sounds live via midi? How do you do it?

    I want to trigger about a dozen or so select sounds from a sound source. I know most of you will say get a sound synth/module such as a Motif, Fantom, ect. But I don't need that many patches, and I would like to get very specific with the sounds that I choose from various software libraries. Could I use a MPC (sampler workstation) to store these select sounds in the memory bank to then trigger them live with the pads and with an external midi keyboard controller?

    I want to use this setup for a heavy touring group that focuses on live playing with a lot of acoustic instruments. If we get into sequencing in the future it would be minimal. Most important, I just need to be able to have some customized pristine drum, percussion, bass and keyboard sounds ready to be triggered.

    I would love to hear comments on you bass players out there having to make more than bass sounds on the gig.
