Help Midi Mapping Electric Drum Set

Ok, I got some questions about mapping an external drum set (mine is a Roland TD-4).

First of all the set registers pretty random notes on the piano roll (ranging from octave -1 to 3) when different pads are triggered, so the only way i've been able to make it work is to write down the keys triggered and then map it in the NN-XT. It would be really nice to use the Kong or the Redrum to make it a little more simple and intuitive, not to mention Kong's drum designing... Any help on this would be awesome.

Problem #2 -When i hit the bass drum pad sometimes because of the kick back i get a slight double bounce which triggers a light but noticeable hit (obviously). Does anyone know if its possible to negate all midi hits that register below a certain velocity (16 for example)? That would help a lot.

Thanks

Thanks for the links. I'm still trying to work around the NN-XT and NN-19. They don't have the work flow i'm used to, and pretty time consuming to map, (at least for me...). I'd really like to remap the Kong.. Also, any thoughts on the Reason Drum Kits refill as a solution? It seems like this may be the way to go to get the full spread of sound... though it looks a little dated, i imagine its still useful.

A workaround for mapping Kong might be to use some trigger devices inside a Combinator. If you put several Subtractor's in a Combinator you will be able to set them to trigger on a single key in the Combi programmer and then use their CV Env outs to trigger Kong drums CV inputs.

It will make remapping things a bit quicker that doing everything in an NN-XT I think.
