I have the same kit for home practice, the pads can be programmed for different things, so for example, I currently have the 1st Rack tom set as a 13" tom, the 2nd 'Rack Tom' set as my ride and the remaining is default, i.e. 2 crashes and 1 floor Tom.
My problem is, I need everything, in addition to a 2nd crash. Even if the two sound identical, I must have two crashes and a ride. So, I thought about splitting the single crash into two crashes, and moving my ride to the right. But, in order to do so, I have to invest in another cymbal, wire, and splitter. The pricey part of that is the cymbal. Unless I really can get away with splitting the crash, and hooking up a rock band cymbal for my ride. Sounds crazy, but I must stick to a budget. Only problem is, I've never heard of anyone adding on to an DTXPLORER, and this is a painfully large investment to make for something that may/may not work.
