There does not seem to be any way of altering the drum/note mapping directly in Drum Designer (other than the 3 pre-configured maps).
You could open the Instrument in the EXS24 and alter note sample mapping in there, or you could use a real-time Transformer (or a Mapped Instrument) object in the Environment to do the re-mapping

Thanks for your reply. It sounds strange to me that there is no easy/normal way for an individual midi mapping in Drum Kit Designer, but thats maybe just the way how Apple designs their products nowadays - just easy to use - .
Anyhow, I just love the sounds and the dynamics of Drum Kit designer when played live with an E-Drum. So much better sounding and responsive than most of the competitors.
Maybe someday there will be an update which enables you to mapp whatever you want in Logic X.

yep.... but you could still modify the incoming MIDI to the Drum Kit Designer mapping either using a real-time Transform, or the Mapped Instrument object in the Environment.
You could probably do it via the new MIDI Scripter plugs too.
What do you need to remap to what?

I´m playing a V-Drum with 4 tom pads. Since in Drum Designer there are only 3 different toms available I would like to map a Shaker or a second HH to one of the tom pads.
What is a real-time Transformer?
Many thanks for your help.

A realtime Transformer is an Environment object that can process MIDI data in realtime to do all sorts of handy things.
In principle, you need a few bits of information to do what you want:
Which MIDI notes do your drum pads transmit (particularly the one you want to re-map)?
Which MIDI note will trigger the sound you want this pad to play (A#3?)
Then create a Transformer object in the Clicks and Ports Layer of the Environment to convert the incoming pad note to the desired (Shaker) note
In this example, the Transformer converts C2 to A#3 notes.
You will need to uncable this setup to work 'conventionally' say with a MIDI keyboard.
If you need to do more re-mapping at the same time, it could be easier to use the Mapped Instrument object.

Thank you so much for your assistance. I really appreciate this.
Since I´ve never worked with the environment I need a few more days to try this out (trial and error). I´ll let you know if it worked out.

Hi Les G
Yep, finally I ended up doing exactly that. I created a a "Logic"-preset in my TD20 brain. From my point of view it is the easiest way of getting your midi instruments mapped with the Drum Kit designer.
Cheers and thanks again to everybody who contributed to this threat.
