Yes its possible, provided your keyboard transmits MIDI events when you
hit the pads.  To check this, setup the keyboard, so that you can play
normally (with the piano keys).  Once this is working, hit the drum pads
and see if the MIDI light flashes (on the left of the stop/play/record
buttons) as it does when you press keys on the keyboard.  If the light
flashes, then it will work.

Once you have got this working, try inserting a 3xOSC and see if the
drum pads can be used to play that.

Tell me how you get on with that much and then I figure the rest of it
out ;-).
