Nope, there's no way you could get any electronic module I know of to mimic a friction-based brush sound. The heads being mesh, they're especially unprepared for that! They should have presets for individual brush hits though.

My old Roland R5 drum machine had a button for the swish sound, and a button for the hit sound. I would assign each one to a pad on my Octapad, and that's how I'd play brushes electronically. The V-Drum technology hasn't reached the point where you could swish on the pad, yet. Maybe one day they will, but that seems like a technological brick wall.
