Let me explain. We are a two-man-group. My mate is doing guitar and vocals and I am doing bass and percussion. Some time ago I build (soldering and then also really assembling) myself a set of 6 drum-pads I play with my feet and we have an old Yamaha drum computer that uses the MIDI from the drum-pads to generate drum samples. So far so good. However the build quality of these drum pads is as lousy as you would expect from someone who is mathematician by training (me) and the drum computer does not use the attack values from the MIDI signal. Hence, the drum sometimes are not triggered but if they are they always sound the same.
However, I had an idea, to buy an electric drum set and indead of connecting the toms and snare and so forth to the main component. So, I was wondering if it is possible to play an E-drum set only with, say six, pedals? This way I have all the advantages of E-drums available at my feet.
EDIT: I want to clarify, that I just want to connect another kick pad to the input for the snare. I assume that the drum-computer is fed by wires from all electric components. So I thought, why not connect another kick-drum to the input for the snare. Shouldn't I then be able to hear a snare sound, when I hit the pedal whose respective kick is connected to the snare?
