Default Roland SPD-30 and FS-5U to control loops

Hi guys,

Posted this on a few forums now, hope you can help!

Basically I have a Roland SPD-30, used mainly with my acoustic kit for sound effects but I'm looking to do some simple loops which I can start and stop during a live song. I don't really want to have to buy the SPD-sx as well...

My problem is that when I stop the loop, the vibrations from my drums restart the loop, probably going through one of the pads. I've messed with the sensitivity a bit but had no luck.

My question is, can I use the FS-5U pedals to start/stop the loop, and will this stop the loop accidentally triggering? Or anyone with any experience know if there is there a better way?
