Mappng dfferent types of pads/trggers
Kick and Toms
Use MIDI Learn to assign all the straightforward types of triggers, such as the toms and kick. It’s up to you whether to assign the kick trigger to the hit or no snare Hit types. It can be a good idea to unload the unused Hit type in order to free up resources.
If you know which notes your drum brain sends out, you can enter the values manually.
For the snare, most e-drums use a pad with triggers for the head and the rim. The most useful way to assign these is to the hit and sidestick Hit types although you may, of course, map them to anything you wish.
Be very careful with MIDI Learn with snare pads, as the cross-talk between the head and rim can be quite substantial. It maybe best to assign these triggers manually.
Many e-drum cymbals have 2 zones which can produce hit and bell notes. On a multi-
On a multi- zone cymbal, it can be quite difficult to hit the correct part of the cymbal when using MIDI Learn, and there maybe substantial cross-talk between zones. It maybe best to assign these triggers manually.
Most drum brains send choking information as polyphonic pressure (aftertouch) signals. If this is the case, enable the Choke with aftertouch option in the Page 1 tab of the Hit Options panel.
BFD supplemental manual Chapter 4: Using BFD with electronic drums

Most e-drum systems transmit a MIDI continuous controller for the hihat pedal, as well as one or more notes when the hihat surface is struck. The actual note configuration can vary, but the principle is the same the notes) should be mapped to variable hihat notes. When BFD receives one of these notes, it plays a hihat position sample between closed and open, depending on the position of the hihat pedal position MIDI CC, and the way in which the Hihat pedal position define slider is set up.
If you have a zone hihat, there is likely to be substantial cross-talk between the zones. With hihats this can be a problem, due to the short Choke Fade times used for hihats. Very abrupt choking of a hihat can occur as a second note is received very shortly after the first. To get around this problem, the Retrigger threshold option is provided in the Choke Fade section of the BFD Options panel, which stops BFD from playing the same
Kit-Piece again within an adjustable period.
There are two methods forgetting a variable hihat system working. For both methods, you will need to know the notes sent out by the drum brain for the hihat. Please consult your e-drum system documentation for details on which notes are used, or record a performance as MIDI and examine the recorded events.
Method 1
1. Map the hihat notes) which are sent by the drum brain to corresponding notes in the Page 1 tab of the BFD Hit Options panel.
For example, if you are using the Roland TD module:
