Yes.  Electronic Drum Kits have a main module which is essentially a drum machine of sorts so you could connect it's midi output to Studio One or any sequencer's midi input and record your playing as midi, or if the main module has multiple audio outputs, record your playing as audio to multiple audio tracks.

You'll have to refer to the DTX user manual for more specifics about that particular kit and how it may connect to audio workstations.
