Zendrum to TD-20 using audio cables instead of MIDI


I probably broke 3 of the ten commandments and voided all warranties but I rewired some of my triggers (snare and toms) to plug directly into the back of the TD-20 via 3.5mm audio cables, bypassing the midi for those triggers. It is smoking fast and I'm able to fine tune the sensitivity of the triggers using the TD-20 settings instead of Zenedit. I can now do tight buzz rolls with crescendo, and the sound and sensitivity is so much more dynamic without the midi. I still use the midi connection for the rest of the triggers to allow for flexibility. And although I now have 4 extra cables coming out of the Zendrum, and some of my triggers are set and can't be changed, it is so worth it. Has anyone else tried this?
