Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.
You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.
There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.
In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.
essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.
if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

It appears that you have to select a "Kit" of drums when using the external triggers. It appears that the volume level for the kit and that for each voice MAY all have to be set, especially after new firmware download. Read manual about KIT volume level and selecting voice and volume level for those. Manual is NOT very clear about these things and you have to try them as this is where the probllem is.

If youve already tested the signal path and it works then your likely just dealing with a bad piezo inside the kick drum. The piezo is actually what detects the trigger. You could probolly replace it yourself it not hard typically just 2 solder joints but you'd have to buy the piezo. Call the manufacturer they should provide you with whomever distributs their parts locally to you.
