using a drum trigger for midi.

Cant find the exact answer for this anywhere. I want to use a DDrum trigger on my drummers snare. To play a sample on a drum rack in ableton.

Can the XLR output from the DDrum trigger be put through either the audio input or midi input of my Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 interface to play that snare hit in ableton. Or would an XLR to USB cable work. As the sound will be processed by ableton Im trying to find a way to avoid needing a whole Vdrum type module. Its only going to be used for that snare sound at the moment.

Or is the a better way without the trigger. Basically similar to pressing a pad on something like the korg nanopad2 I use also. But i need that as part of the drummers setup.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.
