Crimson II not working with Logic Pro X 10.4.2

Hi, this issue is there for a longer time but still there is no solution; Crimson II hihat is not working with Logix Pro X 10.4.2.

I love the kit, works fine with Windows Superior Drummer but not with Logic!! And this is my DAW of choice. I cannot imagine why such kit would not work out-of-the-box with standard mainstream DAWs.

I reset the kit a few times and found a sort of workaround on this website; but this lacks the closed hihat?!?!? That's no solution!

So, can you please Alesis help me here. I'm willing to get you guys info on the issue.

What I did:
- factory reset
- settings:
-- GM Mode ON
-- Local Control ON
-- Hihat Type: Pedal

On the Crimson:
- Hihat: HH is x008
- HH-P: 022
- HH-S: 023

Few tests for your debug on DAW side with Mid Monitor:
- Hit open hihat
- Close and open foot pedal
- Close foot pedal, hit hihat (closed), open pedal

Hitting the Hihat (Open) gets G#-2

So: with Midi Monitor:
23:37:20.526 From Alesis Crimson II Note On 10 G♯-2 32
23:37:20.526 From Alesis Crimson II Note Off 10 G♯-2 0

Closing the pedal and opening the pedal gives:
- Foot Control (coarse) 0 to 127
- A#1 127 then 0
- G#-1 127 then 0
- B-1127 then 0
- Foot Control 127 to 0

So: with Midi Monitor:
