I had a similar issue way, way back when with my Yamaha Motif XS8. It has several drum kits and set-ups. So, I recorded the MIDI output of one of their many rhythm arps attached to one of kits. Notes were all over the place. It took me a while to realize that the Motif was using a kit with basically 72 or so different instruments in it. Not your typical set up! Once I figured that out, dragging the notes around to play the same pattern in whatever other drum machine I wanted to use (Kong, maybe? Can't recall), cleared things up!
