I'm trying to use the pads of my Yamaha DTXplorer
Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.
You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.
There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.
In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.
essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

When i strike the Bass Drum pedal, i sometimes get
First thing to check is if the vibrations of the bass drum amplified MIGHT be triggering the cymbal pickup. Damp the cymbal pad with your hand and see if it still does it. If not, then shield the drumset from the amplified output.
If this does not prevent the problem look for a grounding problem of the triggers.

Headphones on the dtxplorer are
Yes, what can be done is to get a headphone socket( you will get to buy the inline type fully covered) Make sure that the female socket if wired with the pins across the channels connected in series with a 10 ohm/1watt resistor and connected together to the wire to the heaphone male socket which must go to your drums kit.
Now the headphone you have if this is a one side type, you must get a regular stereo type and plug into the female socket.
You will now hear both the channesl equally.The reason why a sincel side is preferred is to listed to the music through one and hear your playing on the other. but I would also have preferred to hear both lightly than one side to make our perception oriented.
I am also a drummer by hobby but I prefer the accoustic types.
Happy drumming. Please dont forget to rate my advice.
