BD + Mesh Head + Trigger Problems

I got problems wit BD+ meshhead + Drum trigger (ddrum, roland):
there are double hits, some hits aren´t recognized
i use a TD12 interface
i tried many settings, but it´s always a problem
(rock/pop is ok, but faster death metal is a problem sometimes)
are the roand kikc pads more accurate? or are there stil problems?

I would use your normal recording interface and Slate Digital's 'Trigger'

It Triggers based on the audio wave, so you can edit the Waveform as normal first and then only apply triggering once you're happy with the wave (Though in most cases no editing is needed, you can avoid double hits with the re-trigger control and hit sensitivity with the sensitivity and detail controls.

I don't know much about proper drum triggering hardware, but I do all my triggering using real mic'd up drums with Slate Trigger - though if you output the ddrum into a normal recording interface that does work too - it won't sound like a drum but it'll draw a perfectly usable waveform.

thanks

but i really need a solution thats doable with a kind of mesh head, because i don´t want an original BD in the overheads
and id like like to use a hardware like td12/td20 or D4, it´s great
i hoped somebody here tried the kick pads
there is also a bd pedal with triggers, but the problem is that every drummer likes his pedal and the axis pedal is kind of unique, cause it reacts the same no matter where you move your foot

Gear Head
 

what brand/type of mesh heads are you using?

you should also experiment with how tight you connect the trigger,

and isn't there a function on your drumhead that works like some sort of "delay" or "latency" , i mean, when 1 note is hit, the drumhead waits like 1 second before it even wants to play another kick-sound? this way you can avoid double hits, you can adjust this 'latency'...
i think my alesis D4 has that
(a bit hard to explain in english)
