Sorry, still got my attention. You'll have to try harder. ;-)

OK. That hasn't scared me off yet. After all, I did mess around
and created an instrument map for the Alesis QS8.

That sounds like something a mere user, i.e. non-programmer (OK,
so I can write perl), can do. I've got 3 gigs next week and
a studio session coming up, so I'm sticking a reminder on my
calendar for a couple weeks out to see if/how I might help out on
this. I'll dig through my Modern Drummer mag's and some books I've
got to see if I can find the official (PAS) standardized drum

Thanks again...
