Can you slave a Roland TD 17 Module to the Alesis Strike? Will it work with drum software?

Hey all!

It's been a while since I've posted. I am wanting to know if I can slave a Roland TD-17 Module to an Alesis Strike Module. Slaving a module is when you connect the MIDI out of one module into the MIDI in of another and configure it so that the "slaved" module will act as a secondary trigger interface, allowing you to have a bunch more inputs.

I am also wondering if I can use this method with VST drum software. I don't want to spend my money on Superiordrummer and a new module if I can't do this.

Thanks,

TD17 -->MIDI--> Strike?
Strike has MIDI in, so yes.

"Will it work with drum software"?
Assume you mean a software instrument, if so, then no reason why not as long as the Strike's MIDI THRU is on.

TD17--> MIDI --> Strike --> MIDI --> PC --> Software

Thank you!

I was also wondering if the modules were compatible. By drum software, I mean something like SuperiorDrummer3 or another similar software
