Can this device be used to

1) Add additional triggers / pads / cymbals to a Crimson module or a Strike module?

And/or

2) Create compatibility of non-Alesis equipment? I.e. connect a dual-connector ATV ride to a Crimson module?

This device seems very promising because it seems capable of converting hardware from other brands to midi notes which can then be used in an Alesis module... I hope this is true.

Cheers.

The eDRUMin works very well for a lot of trigger brands and compatability but it's not going to make a trigger work on a module that isn't setup for an additional trigger be it a $50 trigger or a $500 trigger.It would just be replacing an existing trigger.
eDRUMin works best for software or using as a TMI and MIDI through a module expanding a kit but to Software.
The STRIKE and Crimson (Medeli DD650) module are not expandable...they do not have extra MIDI notes or Voices that can be assigned MIDI notes.You can split the triggers but that's about it..

The Crimson(Medeli DD650) has a GM section..some call Percussion sets..but you have no control over them.The GM section uses the GM standard MIDI map and the module will not display them nor any settings other than a volume trick and you have to turn off MIDI notes in the Digital section if you don't want to layer them.
see this Topic COMMAND/CRIMSON/II/DM10 MKII Studio/FORGE/NITRO/SURGE-Instrument/Voice Stacking

I setup a Trigger I/O with a Crimson and the GM kits were the base kit and the Digital section was the expansion.The only issue was other than not being able to see or edit the GM kits , but I had a foot switch setup for Program change to change the Kits in the Trigger I/O but it also sent a Program change to the Crimson module so the kit changed there also.
Very few modules are truly expandable , one of them was the Original DM10..there are 35 more MIDI notes that can be assigned Voices and fully editable.
Original DM10 35 additional sounds via MIDI

So it can still be used to replace an existing trigger?

I.e. connecting a dual plug ride into the Crimson II SE module (which accepts only single connector rides) via de eDrumin module, then catching the midi note and use that to replace the existing ride sounds.

PS: That said, I have been playing around with the module / trigger settings and have managed to get significantly better bell responses.
