First, how do I change the bass kick pad so that I can more easily do rapid double-kicks (I'm not sure what they are technically called)? I have the KP65. I played an Alesis in the music store this week and it was much easier to do those rapid kicks. I assume I can fiddle with a setting to improve my pedal functioning.

Second, can I improve the responsiveness of the outside of the other pads (snare, toms)? As I go to the edge, the sound gets quieter and I almost feel like it doesn't trigger sometimes. I know this is sort of like acoustic drums, but I'd still like to hear it. I don't want to turn the whole drum volume up, just make the degradation from middle to outer pad less steep.

All in the manuals.A range of settings to help with your personal playing style.

TRG1 Trigger Setup ........................................... Page 66
TRG2 Velocity Curve.......................................... Page 67
TRG3 Pad Type.................................................. Page 68
TRG4 Gain ......................................................... Page 68

Don't forget, there's also a gain knob on the KP65 itself.

Velocity curve will help with your "degradation".
