      Easiest solution, but maybe not the most obvious one. Check your cables to see if they're stereo cables (TRS), i.e. they have two rings. If they have only one ring on the jack, they're mono, and the source of your problem.
      Other causes for problems may be defective cables. Check all that out before you do anything else.

        What pads are you using for the toms. The only Roland pads that will work as dual tom pads are the PD-7 and PD-9. Any other Roland pads will give you only 1 sound.(PD-120, PD-100, PD-80R, PD-80, PD-6 and PD-5) This is true to my knowledge of all the Roland TD brains, 5,6,7,8 and 10.

            The PD-80R is a dual trigger pad also... It has a rim trigger, hence the "R" suffix.

              I know that the PD-80R is dual zoned but it will only work as dual zoned in the snare input, same as the PD-120. In the tom inputs it is just a single zone pad.

                Manu,

                You can assign the 2 sounds to a PD-7. Go to the instrument section(inst) hit the rim check by making sure that the trigger reading is R then change the sound. Be careful not to change the center sound or hit another pad.
