Here is a video tutorials series on how to set up your MIDI sending drums, to trigger visuals in Resolume Arena. I used a Roland TM-2 for playing, all the drum sounds, the bass lines and the spheric sounds are being triggered in Ableton Live. All the MIDI is send through Ableton Live before it is going to the VJ software, this way I am able to modify the MIDI e.g. translating the velocity values to VJ effects. So this way I am not only triggering clips but am able to control the different video effects by louder or quieter – Have a look how this is set-up.
