    The DM5 should be fine with Roland pads and cymbals.
    The CY5 is a single-piece hihat and should mount straight onto the rack. It doesn't need a hi-hat stand, and in fact has its own pedal (if you've ordered that), the FD-8.
    Good luck with it all.

      Hi,
      I'm afraid I can't answer your question on mixing Millenium as I am not familiar with that nor do I have actual experience using a DM5 module with Roland gear. I understand that the Alesis I/O has challenges with Roland pads, but I'll defer to the experts on the DM5.

      The CY-5 is a single pad solution that you mount to your drum stand/cage using a standard Roland tom mount. I have it and it works great. No need for a hi hat stand and no need to use two pads together. For a Roland module, the open/close nature of the hi hat is caused using a Roland FD-7 or FD-8. Not sure if this would apply to the DM5.

      You might want to ask the DM5 question in the Technical forum where there is bound to be someone there who would know. Good luck and welcome aboard!

        Sotaz,

        I deleted your duplicate posts in different forums and merged them - and all the responses - to the proper forum.

        PLEASE do not post the same question in multiple forums; it creates many problems. The biggest concern is that people post some different and some same responses all over the place.

        On addition, I and another Moderator were BOTH trying to correct these duplicate postings by deleting, merging, and moving posts at the same time - creating even more problems.

        I hope the end result, once Amonline and I both got coordinated in what we had to do to correct the dulicate postings, gave you the answer you needed and provides a method to obtain more needed information in a focused part of our board.
