configuration that you drummers prefer. But it still all depends on what the e-kit can do,
which is totally understandable.

I can imagine how hard it might be to apply the various positions on the pedal, and I don't
blame you for doing it the way you're doing it.

So you're stuck with 3 positions on the snare, but speaking for myself, I think you've got
the most important ones.

Heh heh, I think I'm going to bookmark this thread.
Pretty sure you're dead-on with this all being module-dependent...I have 3 different Yamaha modules, a DTX502, DTX400 & older DTXpress...The 502 of course is the best I have, but the other 2 aren't bad really...

The way I do my drums now has came from a lot of trial/error, but I've simplified it down a lot, & it's the easiest route with the best results for me...

So in the end, it's a lot faster doing it this way now, even if I have to edit what I play with the e-kit...
