Frank contacted me directly and his issue has been solved. BFD has a HUGE amount of play options that appear as check marked boxes. In his case, he had the "All Hi Hats Variable" box checked. That feature is used when you are playing a MIDI file with only one HH note and you need to make it more musical.
If you have questions, please feel free to post them here. I spend most of my free time checking in at this forum. If you still have questions you can also PM me, but there are a bunch of Zendrummers moving into the world of BFD and it would be nice for everyone to see the topics.
Hope this helps,
