Default Alesis DM10 unwanted triggering

Hello Everyone: I wondered if anyone could offer some advice, please. I have an Alesis DM10 2011 kit, which I'm really happy with. The only slight glitch is that, sometimes, there is some very faint, sporadic triggering. I think I've traced it to the rim of the tom1. Whatever the drum setting happens to be, it sometimes goes off, quite faintly as I say. This can happen even when I'm not touching anything. The problem seems to be cured when I switch off and on again, but obviously it's a bit problematic to keep on doing that. I wondered if it was a faulty lead. I've tried tightening the tom-head, in case looseness was causing it, but it still seems to be there. It is only occasional, but I'd like to rectify it. Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Many thanks--and greetings from England,
Mike

I am not familiar with the DM-10...however, if it's like most other e-kits out there, you should be able to adjust the trigger settings to reject false triggering...have you posted this at the DMdrummer forum (unoffical Alesis forum)...I'm sure you get help there with module settings...

Im not familiar with the DM-10 either but i do have a Roland TD9 module and there is a setting on there somewhere to adjust the sensitivity of each of the drums/rims/cymbals. Maybe there is an option somewhere in the DM-10. Maybe have a look in the manual for it if you have it to see if there is any mention of a sensitivity setting.

I have the studio kit,and if say a tom has the sensitivity set too high,youll trigger it no matter what you hit.Thats the side effect of these or any e-kit...everything is connected to the frame(aside from the kick).So just make sure all the settings are low enough,especially the cymbals.I have a pintech that has to be adjusted regularly whenever using a default kit setting.Its way flimsy compared to the alesis cymbals,which are actually very nice.

Have you updated your drum module? Apparently there was a ton of problems with X-Talk issues when the DM10s first came out. When I got mine recently the first thing I did was update everything and I've never had any issues.
