    Ride edge can be triggered only if u hit super hard and there's 70% chance it wont trigger even then. I'm okay with that because I just need bow and bell so no probs there. Cymbal in the middle (marked as DMPad 12" Cymbal) triggers well in the middle under the trigger but sometimes don't trigger when you hit other parts. First cymbal and ride bow trigger perfectly. Ride bell can be sometimes hard to hit. What I didn't notice before is that you MUST hit the center of toms to be sure you'll get nice signal (if you hit anywhere close to the rim you won't trigger or you'll get a really weak signal, it DOES trigger but the difference between center and other parts is just big). Crosstalk is decent . I don't get any crosstalk between cymbals and the rest of the set, but the crosstalk between toms is kinda bad (which can be fixed with fiddling with the settings so it's not a big deal). Hi-hat controller require that you change your technique a bit because it can make the quick close&open sound even if you wanted quick close sound, the rest is working fine about it if you calibrate it well.
    Otherwise the kit is good for the money, snare have really nice dynamic and is reponsive, most of the things can be worked around with changing some settings, I'll work on it and post what I can't get worked out (which might be 2nd cymbal response and ride edge triggering). Also pads are kinda loud, especially kick pad, but I'm gonna mesh them anyways.

    That pedal is super old Amati that's falling apart and is almost unusable.
    Ordered Gibraltar Direct Drive Double Intruder to replace it.

    I recommend DMPad 12" CRASH (not DMPad 12" Cymbal). Altho u might not need choke, it's still better than regular DMPad 12" Cymbal.

    Edit: DMPad 12" Cymbal is really bad. It resonates thru whole rack and have good response only exactly underneath the trigger. This one:

    DMPad 12" CRASH Cymbal IS GREAT.

    I was just on your old post that you wanted locked until you could get e-drums...

    Now that you have them, still looking to do the live PC rig?

    I hope you love your DM10 Studio as much as I love mine.
    Changing the sensitivity can help with the crosstalk and triggering. I recommend turning off the rims of the drum pads as the stick hitting them just makes the metal rims cut through the rubber.

    Congrats on the new kit. I just picked up a new dm8 pro for cheap. Loving it so far, just need to learn how to play drums now! Ha ha

    Yep, as soon as I finally manage to have some free time to reinstall windows and setup all that. If it works well with DM10 module I might sell it and buy Alesis IO as I wont need the sounds then.

    I disabled tom rims and I have 0 crosstalk with xtalk send and receive settings on 0 on almost all pads and I was hitting REALLY hard when I was setting it up. I just put snare rim but that was on lower sensitivity than snare head.

    Gz bro, I've also just bought this, need to learn to drum but can't manage to get some time from all this setting up and other stuff I have to do during the day. Can't wait to finally set it up.
