Several years ago I had a Roland TMC-6 (https://www.roland.com/us/products/tmc-6/) to expand my V-drums, and it was really nice. They're discontinued now, but maybe you can find a used one. It accepts Roland's old HH pedal, but I don't know how it will react with a newer pedal. I don't think the PM-16 will accept a HH pedal.Can you recommend a machine similar to the PM 16 but more modern and perhaps with the possibility of connecting a hit hat pedal? (it seems to me that PM 16 does not have this possibility right?)
In case how do I connect it? Just connect the midi cables?
Those top pads are definitely less sensitive and need to be hit harder, so they're not very good for dynamics. Samples like handclaps, crash cymbal, tambourine, etc. work well on them.Another small note ... I have the SPD SX for a few days, I noticed that the 3 pads above are much less sensitive than the other 6
