Hello guys. I bought the Alesis DM7 USB electronic drumkit to use it as a midi controller to trigger EZdrummer 2 on my Macbook Pro laptop but I don't know how to set it up. I could not find any midi related information from the DM7 manual. When I hit a pad while the kit is connected to the Mac via the provided usb cable by uniquesquared.com, I'm getting random sounds from it(snares, toms, crashes, etc.), all at the same time and the only way to stop this mess is turning off the DM7. I don't know that much about midi mapping etc. The DM7 module is working fine so it is not a problem from the kit I guess. Any help on this? Thanks for your support and consideration. :)

Hi Ivan,

Thanks for posting. 

It sounds like you may need to make some adjustments to your sensitivity, and/or your threshold settings. You may also need to increase your crosstalk settings. Please see below for how to do this:

Hello Bill! Keep in mind that I own the DM7 kit and not the DM7X. Thanks.

Hello Bill! This is what it sounds like when the DM7 is usb connected to my mac. As soon as I hit a pad, random sounds are produced by the module. And they are unstoppable so I can not change any settings in both the module and the EZ drummer app on my mac. I need to turn off the DM7 to get rid of these annoying sounds. This is weird.
