Sometimes if I hit the one pad too hard (and by too hard I mean normally) it will also hit another pad that's right near it. I guess it's the vibrations? If there anyway to fix this? Lowering the sensitivity of the pads maybe? Not sure how to do it though. I'm using yamaha dtxplorer.

Also playing phaseshift. Idk if theres anything in-game that could be causing it.

turn sensitivity down and look to see if you have crosstalk settings

Sounds like crosstalk. Should be a setting to adjust on drum kit

Most of the time it is cross-talk, it could also be vibration. Make sure your kit doesn't move when you hit stuff, or anyways, not enough to actually trigger something.

Yes, Definitely cross-talk. I use an alesis kit with the mad-catz midi pro adapter. The setting on my module is abbreviated as "X-talk", and the higher the setting, the more vibration it lets through. so on mine, lower number is more cancellation. But i don't have a yamaha so I'm not sure if yours is backward settings, but just double-check because maybe your higher numbers refer to more cancellation. careful because too much cancellation and it will not let you purposely hit two pads next to each other at the same time (over-kill)... 


...when my x-talk is all the way down to 1, I cant get simultaneous hits from the

1.snare & hi-hat,

2.snare & tom 1,

3.Tom 3 & tom 4

because it cancels the nearest drums to the one you hit.


But all the way up to 15 and hitting one pad triggers all near by drums through the percussion rack, i keep mine at 7-8 right in the middle and it does fine. 

and try turning up the "threshold" setting on the yamaha module for the pad(s) that are too sensitive. Higher threshold means you have to hit it harder or it wont activate at all, where as sensitivity gives you different volumes per each hit. Highest sensitivity = loudest bang on a soft hit. 


After all other settings, then I'd go for bring down the sensitivity setting.
