    That's pretty dumb!

    On my Yamaha DTX700, any input can be assigned any sound present in the module, as my snare input can be a snare, tom, cymbal or percussion sound.

    As mentioned previously, no MIDI in, no expansion. (Check electrodrummer's signature!)

    You either get another module and use the aux in to hear both sounds from one module, or you upgrade to VST and the sky is the limit (but you'll still need another trigger to MIDI device).

    And people, please stop mentioning the Alesis I/O... The Alesis I/O is OLD! There are much better alternatives these days, offering much better triggering.
    Can't speak for the 25 but on my module any pad can be any sound

    As well as old the Alesis I/O is not very good. I had one for a few years along with my ddrum4 (shows how old it is) I could never get it to trigger anywhere near as good as the ddrum4. if it did it would have been a good unit. I only used it for extra cymbals and a couple of odd one shot sounds. It just could not be made to trigger a snare or ride cymbal well. Anything you needed to do a roll on and it was impossible to dial in a good setting.

    No MIDI IN on the TD25. So, you can't use a trigger to MIDI converter to add extra pads. TD25 is a very limited module

    Using a Ddrum/Alesis Trigger I/O with a TD-25.

    Hey All....

    So, we know that on the TD-25 you can only use certain samples on certain triggers, I can confirm that all of the below works....

    SNARE - SNARE/RIMSHOT
    KICK - KICK
    TOMS - TOM 1,TOM 2, TOM 3
    HI HAT - HI HAT
    RIDE - ALL CRASHES, RIDES, SPLASHES & CHINAS
    CRASH 1 - ALL CRASHES, RIDES, SPLASHES & CHINAS
    CRASH 2 - ALL CRASHES, RIDES, SPLASHES & CHINAS
    AUX - ANY SOUND CONTAINED IN THE MODULE

    You can also utilise any PERCUSSION sound across any of the inputs (This has come in handy for me).

    So, here's the deal, I want to use my TD-25 as a secondary module running 1 Hi Hat, 4 Crashes, 2 Splashes, 1 China, 1 Rimshot and 1 Cowbell.

    I am running this so far with no issues.....

    SNARE - RIMSHOT
    KICK - COWBELL
    TOMS -
    HI HAT - HI HAT
    CRASH 1 - CRASH 1
    CRASH 2 - CRASH 2
    RIDE - CRASH 3
    AUX - CRASH 4

    As you can see I come up short on inputs able to assign the 2 X SPLASH & 1 X CHINA sounds I am after due to limitations on the module (Even though I have the 3 Tom inputs available).

    So, what are my options, short of buying a second module, Am I able to use the MIDI capabilities of my existing module paired with a DDrum/Alesis Trigger I/O so be able to make this work?

    Any help would be much appreciated, I really only want to have to buy a second (Third) module if I absolutely have to...…

    Cheers!
    Vig.
