Does anyone know of a single channel kick drum "brain" that can be triggered for live use?

Thanks

Used Alesis d4. Rack mountable, 12 triggers, internal sounds and MIDI out. Should be under $150.

Thanks Ned. I picked one up as you suggested for under $100 just what I needed.

I recently got a great deal on Ebay on a couple of EV PL33s.  They have not arrived yet so I can't give my opinion of them yet though

I dont know what the best kick mic would be but I use a cheap Shure PG52. I have had 3 kick mics and I like this one the most. The Beta52 is more expensive but somehow I would not get the same punch from it plus I used a CAD kick mic and nope...didnt beat the nice punch and clarity of the hit I got from the PG52.

I don't have a ton of experience with all the mentioned mics in this thread, but this weekend I used an EV PL33.  I really liked it. A touch of compression, had it about 4" inside the kick.  Nice full sound, just a hint of click and plenty of punch.

Heil PR40.  Goes deeper, lets me decide what needs to be scooped out (if anything).

Sennheiser E901.  Used it only once, but liked it a lot.  Need to try it again.

PL33s sound real good placed about 4" inside the shells.
