  • Possible to do bass drum triggers with a TD-4?

    Hey everyone, I've got a Roland TD-4 and play a lot of metal so I have gone through two sets of bass drums now and rather than buying a third I am considering getting triggers for my axis pedals https://www.musiciansfriend.com/drum...#productDetail but I can't seem to figure out how to wire the high hat pedal cable to be another bass drum, or the ride cable to be another bass drum. I bought this TD-4 used from a music store two years ago and it looks like they had the crash cymbal wired up to the ride cable and the ride cymbal wired up to the crash 2 cable and it seems like the crash 1 cable might not work anymore but I'm not certain. Is it possible that the crash 1 cable just got turned off in the settings of the TD-4 and I could turn it back on somehow? I was also thinking that I could just get a 2 to 1 1/4 y splitter and wire both triggers to the bass drum input, but I normally play with my beaters resting against the bass drum and then lift my feet and play the note to return to the beaters resting on the head, and I am worried that if I was resting one pedal against the head and playing with the other pedal, that the module would get confused, as opposed to two separate inputs, one for each bass drum trigger.
