Looking to build something similar in design to the drum pad pictured below. I want to be able to play it with drum sticks and each pad will be about 3 by 6 inches I am running into Abelton so it only needs to be a midi controller. I am wondering what the best type of sensor to use would be, after watching this video http://youtu.be/-4BPpfFGcIE I was thinking of going with the Piezo Element https://www.adafruit.com/products/1739 but also saw Force Sensitive Resistors like this https://www.adafruit.com/products/1075 that seem similar to what the Akai MPC uses. also since the pads are not square I was looking athttps://www.adafruit.com/products/1917 and https://www.adafruit.com/products/1361 Any incite on the best route to take would be greatly appreciated.
