I've had a problem too, but nothing to do with getting used to the kit. I'm not sure if this is the brain of the Ion set malfunctioning, so if anybody has any idea please reply as soon as possible. Every time I hit the yellow, blue, or green drum pad it registers a hit for the red pad as well even though I am not hitting it all. I started playing Fortunate Son and immediately started to fail because every time I hit the yellow pad for the hi hat it was registering a hit for the snare. Also it does it with my cymbals too. It would be really helpful if anybody knew what this was.
