Author to a single pedal.
The issue is just whether it's playable on one pedal. As long as the notes are slow enough (and I guess 16ths at 102bpm sounds slow enough to everyone), it's not a problem.
(I can only play a single pair of fast kicks at a moderate tempo, I can't sustain them, but that's true on a real kit as well, so.)
The one thing I don't understand about all this "RB has never done it" and "magma won't let you" is it really seems like that e.g. that one flourish-y double-kick in Limelight (Tom Sawyer?) which seems unplayably fast on a single pedal (with no bounce) to me. (I can play it on a real kit if I position my foot just right and rely on the bounce of the beater.) But I see there are other threads about this, so I guess I just suck. (Not sacarsm.) Certainly I can't imagine anyone could possibly sustain those; does magma distinguish timing of sustained runs of kicks versus a single pair or triple of kicks?

Although Neil Peart DOES use double bass on alot of his songs, none of them have been charted in rock band. And when I say none I mean absolutely zero.
Harmonix, thanks to Jimi Hendrix Experience, you've made sure I never will say one bad word about your company!
I think you can and should get away with charting both pedals. It would feel extremely off playing only one of those.
