Lots of problems

Im not sure if the problem is with the hardware or software, but I have a set of E-drums that I used to use for recording into logic. I injured my foot and couldn’t play for about 3 years. Needed some money and sold my TD-8 module. Since then I recovered and wanted to start recording e-drums again. I picked up a DM Dock and downloaded the DM touch software. After hooking everything up, the bass drum wouldn’t sound even though it appeared to be getting a signal. I ended up switching the bass drum trigger to a floor tom input and put a bass drum sample on it. That fixed that problem. The high hat foot pedal input would not accept a signal from my roland pedal. I switched to a balanced cable from the pedal to the input and still did not fix the problem. The software hasn't been update for over 2 years....going to send the DM dock back. I need the high hat to work.

MIDI note problem

I have an issue trying to save or change the midi note information for Tom-tom one, which doesn't automatically lineup as all my other drums do. I see a place in settings to change this but no way to save it changing it in the field doesn't seem to have any effect.I have an Roland HD-1 and all the other drums match up perfectly with the Midi note numbers that are set by default.I can't tell if this is a user error because I don't know what to do, or if I need to go through a midi learning process for the pad...or if indeed there is a bug and needs to be fixed on this. It's frustrating to have the entire drum set work perfectly including cymbals, , hi hat and everything with this one exception this one Tom...Please help!

Needs Work!

I bought the DM Dock thinking I could breath new life into my aging electronic drum kit, unfortunately the DM Touch software has been extremely glitchy as far as the drum kits not triggering correctly and the sounds become distorted after a few minutes of playing. I can't believe this ever made it through any qa process. There is no capability to load your own samples. The only thing the software is good for is setting up the triggers. At this point, I'm using Drums XD to serve up the sounds. It does all that is needed except for utilizing the hh controller.

I also have the alesis pro x hh controller, but it does not appear to be supported by the DM dock and DM touch. Any plans to support that?
