Will rockband or wii drums work with a proper electronic drum module?

I have a set of RBWT drums and a set of Wii drums... can I use these pads with a regular Electronic Drum Module? .. I know I would have to solder jacks onto the wires that would be compatable with the receptacle in the Drum Module... but do they have the right pulse to signal the module?

Thanks for the reply... I have tried several of those programs, and had nothing but grief... I get constant latency no matter what I try.. so have finally given up on the idea..it may be my system, may be the soundcard etc... Tired of maybe's ... I now want to find a Module that has a headphone/line out that I can plug right into my mixing board... and bein disabled I ain't a rich fella... so hopin I can use some of the stuff I have, and hoping to find a trade for a Module for some no longer used music gear I have.

The software is pretty weak sauce - mostly because of lag.  You really need a good drum brain to interpret the pulses.

And yes, rb/wii drums have the same piezo in them as commercial drums, perhaps slightly lesser quality, but they all output routhly the same signal == very very small.

That is very cool news, thank you very much... I have already taken apart one set and cut it up for individual mounting... am gonna take pics of this, hopefully to place in here at some point... but pics will be mediocre as I have to take them with my cel phone...

I have no idea about drum modules...

but...
 
There are certain programs out on the internet already for converting Rock Band instruments into actual instruments.  You plug them into your PC, install the software, and start playing.
