Hi there

This place is becoming a useful resource for people who are looking for information, advice, sort out technical problems, or just let off steam about the 2box drumit 5 - we've got some great regular posters who really know what they're talking about (you know who you are :))

I've personally been anticipating the release of the Drumit 5 for a very long time - I've had my DDrum 4 SE kit for something like 12 years and while I love it to death still, the tiny 8mb of RAM is really showing its age, and the heavily compressed sounds could really do with the 24-bit treatment.

Most of my music output these days is done in my small studio, so I am really enthusiastic about the specifications 2box are ramming inside the Drumit 5 for drummers and producers.

Please do register and join us on the forum and tell us your story!

Thanks
Tom

Great this new forum !
Hope it will be succesful as www.ddrums.com was some years ago
Just a question: why not painting it orange a bit ?   8)
And what about those hex-pads on the background     ;D

Woo, a nice dedicated forum, been looking for one for ages! Nice work!

I played the demo kit at Andertons, loved it - didn't pre order though cause I thought I'd prefer the 2nd batch... though I thought I would have it by now! Dang!

Still not long to go from the sounds of it!

Hi, welcome on board Thackleberry ...I know what you mean about waiting for the second batch, but if no-one tries the first then 2box might not get off the ground  :o

Besides, the operating system will be upgradeable via USB - if you look at synths like the Virus TI line (which is on OS3 now) that has meant big on-going functionality boosts (and bug fixes).

Hi all
I'm following the Drumit Five buzz on french forum Audiofanzine since more than 1 year. Like many others in France, I'm waiting for it with great impatience.
Like Thackleberry, I have not yet pre-ordered it. Despite the positive appreciations around, I prefer to wait for test reports by professional musicians and press.
Also, I agree with UC's answer, but this is a big investment for an amateur, and I'd be more easy if we had an insurance that the first buyers could have a free upgrade in case of hardware design problem in the first batch.
Thank you for setting up this forum. Things are getting precise... at last !

Don't tone it down, because I think it works! It is after all a forum about an edrum/company who's main color is orange.

That is such a cool video marecsek, awesome job ;). The drums look great aswell for your bands style they fit in very well. Can't wait for more.

How are you getting on with the drums?

Post by: marecsek on August 18, 2009, 03:19:11 PM
Thx  Travis...
I really love the drums, I was eager to gt these... This is something TOTALY NEW GOING ON... NEW SOUND, NEW OWN SAMPLES, GREAT MANCHINE...

We already did recording in studio.. Everthing working great.
I will post in autum some new song with video. I thing with this you can get just better.
Samples are REAL GREAT QUALITY .Machine software needs 1-2 days t get along but it is NOT anything that HARD to get used to. then just EXPERIMENT, and do all WICKED STUFF!

Enjoy then...

(I sound like a dealer or something :-)))) but funny I am not... my friend he got me this kit... He is a man - THX Mr. TOMAS CORN)

Hi!
Thanks for all the infos and answers that forum gives.
I'll buy a 2box drumkit but i have a doubt: the noise.
I already have a Roland drumset (td 3) which have a stand alone kick pad and rubber pads.
The noise level is quite high with the roland,in particulary the kick's vibrations that run over floor and walls.
For this reason my neighbour went mad and now i can't play the roland more :(.

Looking for the 2box i see that the kick pad is linked to the rack so i guess that maybe noise and vibraitions will be reducted.
Also the mesh head will be more silent than the rubber one, am i right?
Is sad for a drummer living in apartment.
Has anyone compared 2box noise with any other edrum set ? (roland or yamaha is nearly the same)

Thank you for your opinion
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: UC on August 21, 2009, 03:22:40 PM
Hi Lumakeo, welcome on board.

The DrumIt's kick is certainly much quieter than my DD4's setup (real head, aluminium cast shell, pedal from my old Pearl Export), and those TD 3 kicks have quite a solid "thwack" to them too.

I'm guessing your problem is the mechanical vibration going through the floor though, and you'll probably get that at some level from anything you bang repeatedly :D

There's some good suggestions over here:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-44573_32_0.html
...none of the answers are 'quick and easy' but you might get some good ideas.

My advice is go and spend some time trying the DrumIt out in a drum shop, preferably with a friend, so you can take it in turns playing & listening to how much noise it's likely to transmit in your apartment, compared to your TD3.

If that fails, give us your neighbour's address and we'll teach him some tolerance of percussion :D

Thanks for the tip.
One of these days i will test the orange jewel in the nearest drumshop that has it (300 km far from my house...) then i can tell you about the noise comparison.
Meanwhile i'm looking for isolate the floor using rubber carpets, moquette, wood..... trying to find the cheapest and more efficent way to solve the problem.
Maybe it would be make the neighbour deaf  :)

and i'm planning to use about 4 pieces when i get the 2box, which is soon i hope ...

I actually ended up getting a kit today! Found a company that wanted to sell their demo kit, which had barely been played.  Bargain!

However, the couriers didn't deliver all 3 boxes (the shop split it into 3 boxes to make it easier to pack), so I'm playing it on my old V-drum rack.

Bit of an issue with a cymbal channel, which I'll investigate a bit more, but it doesn't seem to be triggering the right zone consistently!

Post by: UC on October 31, 2009, 06:47:21 PM
Good work :)
Have you tried swapping leads etc? Do you know if your shop will replace it for you if it's a damaged cymbal?

If you have no joy, maybe you could track down Scottie (http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php?action=profile;u=14).

Cheers

[Hello to all, regards from Spain.
Sorry for my English evil.
I am called Roberto, touch ddrum 4SE from 3 years behind and now I am 2 months old 2box.
It is a marvellous machine, is not a toy as other marks that offer 1000 sounds but all of plastic.
When I touch 2box I believe that it she is real and it is the important thing.
I agree with some commentaries on the hardware, it he is very weak, a use my rack of ddrum and a stand hit hat and fantasticly.

A greeting to all, I am in contact and waiting for the new one OS.

Hi there, all you drummers!
I'm also waiting for 2Box to arrive to the local music store. What will happen after you tried out and are ready to bye a kit?
Will there be a waiting list, I mean it seams to be hundreds of drummers (in bigger citys) thinking of bying the 2Box.
Does anyone know about delivery time etc?

UC - I was lurking for a while - just soaking up the information before I decided to join and post. I did notice Scott's been able to provide a lot of very valuable information for the community here. I liked the overall vibe (very similar to how ddrums.com was about 8-10 years ago) and figured I'd join.

As for getting a kit, no, not yet. A couple reasons being; no US distributor, I have (as yet) unanswered questions about the hardware's flexibility for non-standard setups, the lack of availability of the kit building/programming software, and (mostly) because I don't have the budget set aside for one yet. Once those other issues are addressed, I'll start budgeting for one (probably after my next snare drum purchase...) :)

In the mean time, I'll just have to make do with my ddrum4 setup.  8)

Hey everyone,

Since a few weeks I live in my own house in Zwolle (Netherlands). Here I have difficulty with the noise of my Premier Projector acoustic drums. The drumstudio is not isolated jet and has to be isolated. To do this in the best possible way is a box in a box. Witch is very expensive.
Or I don't isolate the drumstudio that much and buy a 2 Box Drumit five.
I have bin reading a lot, espacially the commands of Puttenvr, and the more I read the more I dislike Roland stuff. And try to find a hole in my agenda to go and play on a demo version of the Drumit five. :-\
And I think I already made up my mind to go and buy a Drumit five. Not sure of the perfect isolation possibilaties of the drumstudio. I go for the safety of making no noise. ;)

Hello everybody,
I just gift myself a new Drumkit5, I think one of the first arrived in Italy.
I went and try some kits in Verona, and the 2box is the one that convinced me that I would have spend well my money. I tried Roland and Yamaha, but sounds are so horrible that i am sure i would have lost my passion in playng.
Well my first impression is: GREAT sounds, but poor mechanics. Here they can do better. I had to rearrange by myself the snare support who is too light and had a demaged screw. For the cymbals, I used supports from my acostical drum.
However, after this little problems, it was a great sensation start playing and enjoing so much. a very comfortable feeling.
In the next days I will setup better, and I'm sure that results will grow.
BYE

Hello everyone, I'm triggering my acoustic kit and after using a TD-8 I'm using a TD-20 for two years now.
However, actually I'm looking to get a DDrum 4 next but I'm also looking on the 2Box module because there's a lot of potential. As hard it is to find a DDrum module as long it will take until you get the module only. So I'm here to check out the new samples and wait ...
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: puttenvr on January 04, 2010, 02:45:09 PM
The wait will be worth it.
Although the ddrum4 is a nice module (just found for you http://link.marktplaats.nl/308069221
and http://link.marktplaats.nl/305859293) the 2Box is a better (more memory, spiced up sounds) module. Forget about the Roland

Hi everybody!

I've been following this forum for a couple of weeks now so I decided to join you guys. I've ordered my 2box drumit 2 weeks ago and I'm waiting for the next shipment. I've never owned a drum kit before and I'm not much of a drummer too, but my favourite color happens to be orange (I'm from the Netherlands :)), so I couldn't resist buying it.

Welcome tjemu! That's as good a reason as any I would say!

I started drumming about 20 years ago (omg!) on a crappy old kit that sounded terrible - that didn't help with the enthusiasm much, but once I could afford a better kit, I got more and more into it. I also found that using industrial over-the ear protectors really compressed the drum sounds and took the white noise of harsh cymbals away, and I got better a lot faster. I guess the point of the story is, if your drums sound good, you'll learn quick  :drum2:

Thank you! I'm a musician for more than 20 years now. Mainly on keyboards but later drums and bass guitar as well. I thought myself some basic beats to be able to replace the very unreliable drummer of one of the bands I was playing keyboards in. The only way for me to practice was at rehearsal with the band. But to be honest I really liked the drummer's absence because that allowed me to practice drumming. :-) And now I'm almost the owner of my own drum kit. Can't wait!

Hi!
I haven't seen this thread until now but here's about me...
I'm Anders from Sweden and I've had my 2Box kit for about 2 weeks now - after waiting for the kit since last summer. I'm totally satisfied with the kit and I'm playing on it for hours every day and it's so fun.
This is my first e-kit (but I've been playing the drums for quite a while now) and mostly my kit will be at home for pratice and for recording but we'll also use it live when it is suitable. I'm playing the drums in the band Frankly (http://www.franklyonline.com).

Cheers!   :rock:

(perhaps just a stupid question)

Especially blackmetal, the swedish band bathory was the first black metal band. Norway (dimmu borgir, mayhem, burzum, immortal) and Sweden (dissection, naglfar, bathory) dominates the blackmetal scene, sweden is also big in deathmetal, finland is big in metal too (finntroll, children of bodom, nightwish, sonata arctica).

Maybe we have some pagan spirit left!  8)

Hi there!

First post, although I've been reading quite a bit.
I actually got a kit today, just to try out on a gig.
The great thing is, that my friend who owns the kit also does the samples, so now I get to try out the new Gretsch Walnut sounds, and a lot of other new sounds.

I did try the kits out wuite a bit at NAMM in january, and I love it!

There are quite a few DW's on the 2box already. Everything called VLT or Xshell is DW.
I tend to use prg 40, Genious John G a lot. That's John Good, DW vice president, and head of research.

Post by: strutt on April 29, 2010, 09:18:42 PM
Hello all,
First off what a great place! It reminds me of the old days of the ddrums.com website. I have been a long time ddrum user. I've had both versions of the ddrum4, still have a ddrum3 brain, and have owned a td20 roland kit. To me, it seems like nothing is better than ddrum, until now. The drumit 5 seems to be what we always wanted in the ddrum5. Being in the US, I can't go to a show and try the kit out, but have been able to find the answers to most of my questions here and also from reading the manual. I really like the ability to create my own custom sounds and have played with their kit builder software. It nice to drop some of my samples from Battery 3 and create sounds. It's nice to drop 8 samples of a gong and create a multi sample and it's much easier than doing it with my dd3.

Currently, with the band I'm in, I am using a 5 piece kit, I use my dd3 to trigger the 5 drums and have a pad for "extra bells and whistles." It's nice to have each sound on it own output for the sound guy to control. Some rooms I trigger sounds and mic my kit. I also use a Roland SPD-S. 1/3 of the songs we play have a keyboard sequence. I also have a 1 bar click for the other songs. It's nice to have the tempos the same at each gig. If I'm reading the manual correctly, the Drumit 5 does have 6 mono outputs, plus I can use the head phone for either a stereo output or split them and have two more mono outs. So I should have enough outputs. I couldn't find it in the manual, but I know I can load wav files of my "songs." Is there a button on the unit that starts and stops the songs? Can I assign a pad to start and stop the song?

Again, what a great product and what a great place to get information.  I'm almost ready to import a kit from the UK.

Post by: Baby Samus on April 30, 2010, 12:19:32 AM
Hi Strutt, welcome to the forum.

Yes, you can copy .wav files into the module and have the module play them, but you need to press a button on the module to do this.  The good thing about the 2Box is, if you mention a feature here it may well end up in the next software update!

For instance, the kit has no metronome but one will be included in the next software update, also improved cymbal triggering.  There is a thread here which you can use to list what you would like to see in future software and hardware updates for the kit and module:

http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php/topic,287.0.html (http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php/topic,287.0.html)

2Box are listening to us so we shall see what the next update brings - I think many people would like the facilty that you suggest.  The unit indeed has 6 outs, and I think 1 or two more depending on how you configure it - I have not used all the outs so far as I use real cymbals and a real snare live.  You can also use the mix-in jack to play another device into the module, like an mp3 player or live mix etc.

Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: strutt on April 30, 2010, 09:25:04 PM
Sounds like this could easily replace my dd3 and my Spds. I could have each song from my setlist programed as a drumkit. Then the songs with the "tracks," hit a button to start the sequence. If need be, I could hit another button and stop it. It would be easier to hit a pad and start the song, hit the same pad again to stop it, maybe down the road...

HELLLOO!!!!  First time user!  How's everybody?

Anyhoo...I used to own a Roland(gasp) TD9KX...sold it cuz I missed the acoustic thing, but am now looking to get back into edrumming..
I was amazed to find my local music store(Vancouver, Canada) had a 2Box kit "somewhere in the back" still in its 2 boxes.  The salesman let me take it home to try before I buy, and I don't know about the rest of you, be these are the best damn sounding electronic drums I have ever heard!  Especially at the price point.  I am actually amazed how real the toms sound.  And none of the useless stuff Roland throws in.  Here they're selling for 2400 canadian, which is pretty cheap for what you get.  And consider the TD9 is 2600..
Sadly I can't buy it right now.. :( but it's good to know that when I am ready I know this IS the kit to get.
See ya ;)

Hi all,

I'm Ron, all the way from The Netherlands.
Just what I needed.....a 2box forum....just great !
The only problem is my technical English, it's not great.
But maybe Puttenvr is willing to help when needed  ;)

On the last day of June I ordered a 2box kit.
I am still waiting to get it  :(
My set will be delivered somewhere around september 4th.
The good news is that it will be the new improved MK2.
Worth waiting I think. Check the pic.

I never seen or heard a 2box live, only on the internet.
But I am convinced already.
Also thanks to Puttenvr who told me about the pros and cons.

When I get it I will make some nice pics to show.

Greets, Ron  :drum1:

Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: hwasser on August 06, 2010, 08:22:38 AM
Ok. Nja I don't have any problem with the rack, I dont have any crosstalk or such. A little quiter kick would be good but the cymbals are as loud cause they use real metal instead of cheap plastic like the expensive roland and yamaha sets (never liked the feeling of their cymbals, and I use one yamaha 135 cymbal as 2nd crash so I have tested properly at home. :)

The only thing I have problem with is the midi triggering weird in Cubase, but that can for sure be adjusted in addictive drums.

I think it depends on your distributor and if they have extra kits they are willing to break up.  4 toms 3 cym=heaven!!  Insider tells me they are developing an 8 inch tom too(without the black rim)!  Also smaller cymbals/splashes.  That would be a sweet addition.

The new rack looks awesome, though... :)

I think it depends on your distributor and if they have extra kits they are willing to break up.  4 toms 3 cym=heaven!!  Insider tells me they are developing an 8 inch tom too(without the black rim)!  Also smaller cymbals/splashes.  That would be a sweet addition.

8 inch tom without a black rim...I hope they don't change the pads time after time.

I think I will never use the original hihat-stand or pedal.
I think it was nice though that there were 2 of the tennisball-like bd-beater included. Probably a mistake.
I think the rack is nice!

I think the sounds are awesome, and it works like a charm with Superior 2.0!

This.

As you might understand, 2Box sends out the remaining "old" bassdrumpads.
No biggie, just open it, and remove the plate, and move the trigger.
I cut the foam to strips, and then I actually got some strips from Bengt.
Someday I'll exchange them.

However. I have had ZERO problem with duble-triggering, and i haven't started using the triggerball-beater yet.
The next shipment, or so, will have the "new" bassdrum.

Hi

We have been working very very hard. Demand has surpassed all  our expectations with a very large company in Japan being signed up as our distributor. I am told they would like to distribute the product in the USA. There will be new sample sounds for you to download FOC very shortly. Thanks to all of you for your support, it is appreciated. We know there have been some issues that have cropped up, but we have tried very hard to respond to you all, even though we are at this time a small company. I try not to bug the guys in Sweden to much, as I am sure they are working hard to develop new products and exciting new features for the Drumit 5.

what about spare parts I know I asked it couple of times but we all want some extra tom or cymbals.

Hello Roel

We are busting a gut, I know it's it's not a very elegant phrase but it is the truth. We are busting a gut to make full kits at the moment. We know you guys want extra toms and cymbals, and please don't forget they would be a great profit stream for us as well. I believe separate toms are in production. We are also having some extra new racks made as well, but this is an expensive stand, when you see it in the flesh, you will see the difference, so please do not expect it to be cheap. As soon as I have some firm news for you all, I will come back lot you.

Hi sweetspot

What kind of bugs did you find?

Hi!

It is not really a bug (as I hope). Drumit5 comes shipped with a kick called "gold 20 kick" (iirc). If you play this kick loud, you can hear a delay, maybe 20-40ms. It seems, that there are soundfiles not correctly cut in the beginning, so you have a fraction of a second silence, before the waveform begins. I tested this with another brain, same thing.

First I thought, it is a trigger problem, so I changed settings, tried another kick pad, different beaters etc. But later I realized, that it is only this kick sound that causes problems.

Possibly the engineer had to work under pressure of time. Maybe there are more sounds, that show this "bug". I have not yet time to test them all.

Someone talked about this in a french forum.
Yes, this sound has a bug in a high layer: the kick hit is delayed in time.
This can be repaired with DsndTool, by splitting the file and correcting the layer (or deleting it).

Hi all!

I've had my 2Box DrumIt Five (with a Pearl Eliminator Demon Drive double pedal, as well as recommended rubber beaters and a patch for the bass) for a couple of weeks now and I'm still tuning a lot, trying different things, getting to know both the software and the hardware.

I'll use both acoustic sounds along with electro and industrial trigger sounds. I'd be happy to share some work later on ;)

For what I've experienced so far, the inhabitants of this forum seems to be very nice and helpful :)

Back to drumming and adjusting! :drum3:

I've gone for it just on the basis of what I've seen and read on the web, and the fact that when I've tried Roland kits in stores and stuff, they've not really felt right -- oh, and I just LOVE that orange colour.

Hey there, just thought I'd introduce myself. Joined the forum today so I could get help with a question.
Anyway, I'm Lisa, and I live in Australia. Have been a 2box owner for about 6 months now. I have wanted an e-kit for quite a while, but never really liked the feel and the compactness of the Rolands. My drum teacher had a Roland kit, but then he got a 2box. After I played his, i just had to get one for myself. I haven't really played my acoustic kit since getting my 2box. It's a Tama Superstar...and strangely it's orange, too  :D

And what about those hex-pads on the background     


Hi All,


I remember well ddrums.com, and indeed Puttenvr - a great site it was! I have travelled here, as after nearly 4 or 5 years of not using my 2002 Ddrum4 SE I have got it back out and using it again, along with some experiments with Boom Theory e-drums and Smartrigger cymbals - I want to give the whole acoustic look, and acoustic sound, but e-drums another go. I had forgotten how great the ddrum4 se is.

Hi Ruud,

Hello to the forum - like me (well similar) I am giving my old ddrm4 se a return after playing a TD20 K expanded for 3 years. Why did you change?? For me - I wanted a real looking kit and acoustic sounds - so going down the ddrum4 se module route with Boom Theory space muffin drums and Smartrigger cymbals.
I will be getting some smartrigger hats soon to try out - not sure if the ddrum4 se and 2Box are similar - but will let you know how I get on.

I see some familiar "nics" from other forums Iv'e visited over the years (hmmm... I just remembered that I'd used to be known as "Mr Harley"... but alas... "Slagverket" it is!  ;D However great to see some old friends!!! Now I'm off to the nearest shop to get me my first playing impression. Perhaps I'll be able to put one up in the office back home by the weekend!!! Putting my "analog" Sonor Delite rigg in the house is unfortunately out of the Q... 2box might just save my life... I'm going bonkers for not being able to whacka-da-whack...

Slag my boy, Drumit WILL save your life!  It did mine!  Run and order it.  Oh and the Rookie...forget the TD12, way less for waaay more..nuff said.  Most compare the Drumit to a TD20 anyway.  You won't find a Roland supporter on this forum, and many of us have used them before.  The Drumit is simply a game changer in sound, and most importantly, price.(not that I'm biased or anything ;))
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: Slagverket on November 10, 2010, 03:33:30 PM
Evy, thanx for the comment. Unfortunately they did not have a kit in ANY shop... Closest Stockholm (200km)... Say it's a supply problem... GRAHG!!! Anyhow... nice to hear it SHOULD be a great change in sound. I plan to use the 2Box mainly for rehersal and I'm primarily looking to have it "tuned" to an acoustic sound as close to my own "analog" as possible... I have played almost alla electronics on the market in the days... TD20 is ok but "out of the box" I still find the toms to be to far from the "real" thing... Anyhows... I told the guy at my local shop to check on delivery times and give me a call... Also... I will want to add 2 more cymbals (single trigger is ok) for my splash/china... but I guess thats ok to do? Then I'll be fine with the practice set up! BTW... "Slagverket" (Swedish) means more or less "Percussion" since "Slagverk" is the "old" acronym for almost anything "drums" (before breaking in to all sorts and varieties)... But also it's used to be an acronym for "hammerworks" ie. heavy sounding industry... Well... I thought it fitting since I tend to be a bit loud... (as a soundguy politely put it during a soundcheck whilst throwing off his headphones)... "- Sir, you have a very distinct attack"...  ;)

Slag I hope you get to try a kit soon.  The main difference between the 2box and roland is the 'real' sound and dynamics.
I was in your place, 2 kids...no time to drag a kit around all over the place, didn't want to spend thousands upon thousands professionally soundproofing the garage(or swedish equivalent).  I was looking at other kits---even the horrible DTX550---shudder...or contemplating going back to Roland or even something different like HART.  Then I came across 2box and lo and behold my local shop had one in the back(I couldn't quite believe it)  And I'm all the way in Canada...anyhoo, suffice to say, it fills the space in my head that needed to be satisfied I was playing an ekit that felt as close to the real thing as possible.  I once had a Roland TD9 with mesh heads that simply did not do that for me.
As for other parts, there are some pads available through Scottie on this forum.  Cymbals are harder to come by at this point but something like Kit Toys will work, and they have smaller sizes and chinas.  The big complaint about 2box so far is a lack of spare pieces, but in their defence they are trying to keep up with demand for the kits.  Good luck!

Slag I hope you get to try a kit soon.  The main difference between the 2box and roland is the 'real' sound and dynamics....
As for other parts, there are some pads available through Scottie on this forum.  Cymbals are harder to come by at this point but something like Kit Toys will work, and they have smaller sizes and chinas.

Good input... As I stated earlier. I'll give TTS a ring. If they can provide I'll order without trying. I trust you guys on this one  :rock: Thanx for the tip on cymbals... no real hurry to get them but I will asap as I get the kit. Thanx again Evy and Rythm... This is what a GOOD forum is all about!!!

the other nice thing about this forum is 2Box is listening.  If there are problems, the developer deals directly with us.
Right now there is an issue with some sound cards which will hopefully be rectified asap!  Great service IMO.

@S.Oliver... good luck with the kit. Seems like a good deal you did there. Hmmm... I thought it'd be easy to get a new kit by the weekend but alas its friday...  :-[ In Sweden they say no MK-II deliverys until after x-mas. So Iv'e mailed Thomann to see what thet can get me... Actually I would go for your option if I just could find a new MK-I for sale... I have so much hardware around so the MK-I rack is not an issue... But perhaps there are upgrades to pads and cymbals... Hmmm... to wait or not to wait... Scottie... can you help me out here...  ::)

First of all, HI and welcome :)

Second. You live in Sverige. Isn't is possible to call 2box, drive to them in your volvo 240 station and get you own? Or arent they fabricated in Sverige?

Got my kit from thomann 1 month ago. Received a MKII rack with the kit but the kick-pad is definitely MKI, dunno about the other pads or cympals.

Dunno... I thought they were designed in Sweden but manufactured somewere in Asia?? BUt I called TTS (Swedish dist., all sales go through them) and they gave me the 1/11... I totally understand 2box wants to go through a dist. It would be mayhem for them otherwise...

BTW. I'm making panncaces for the kidz... and yes... its a Volvo... but V70 ;-)

Ok, so I have done this the wrong way around, I've been posting for a few days, but haven't had the courtesy to formally say hello!

I played drums in the late 70's through to the middle 80's and enjoyed a few moments of success along the way. I quit in 1985 (not really through choice) and didn't touch a kit until 1999 when I purchased a Yamaha DTXPress. The timing was wrong as I had just launched my business, so while it was meant as a stress relief to dealing with rock star demands 24/7, it sat mostly idle as I simply didn't have the time to play. That said, it did give me enough confidence to take the stage for one song with an ex member of Supertramp who did his best to convince me to continue playing.

Jump forward to 2007. I bought a Roland kit to try and get away from work, but once again, business got in the way, so it sat idle until January 2009. However, since then, there has been a massive percussive explosion in my life. I've since worked through each of the Roland range (including old modules) as well as acquiring a few nice acoustic kits and am now out playing with two bands in my spare time.

I'd looked at 2Box in February 2009 and loved the concept but not so much the looks and with the complete package being the only purchase option, despite ticking many boxes, I stepped back. This week I learned that the module was available now as a stand alone product and that really lit a fire under me.

I've fast tracked my research and also tested the whole kit. As a result, I have just ordered the module and plan to test it with other 'e' drum products in the coming weeks and months. I may yet purchase a whole kit to have at my studio as I have three separate requirements for 'e' drums in what I do, but for now, I am excited to be here and to see how far the boundaries of the 2Box product will reach.

It seems the forum has got off to a great start and reading the input from those working within 2Box, it seems you can't ask for a better home to discuss the equipment.

So that's my little story and my apologies again for not saying hello sooner!

I also play in a prog band called Quandary and am proud to call myself a proghead :P

Hey there,

New to this forum, thought I'd say hello.

Just got my 2box kit last night, can't wait to actually have the time to play it tonight.

up here in Canada I've noticed a couple of places to get them if people are looking. One is Mojo Music in Oakville Ontario(where I got mine) and Axe Music out west(which delivers).

Anyway, I already have picked up a few tips from this forum and can't wait to be visiting back here often. Thanks.

I assume because they just got them in that your kit isn't affected by a batch of bad data cards.  There is a thread on this forum dealing with that.  About 500 kits were affected.  Not trying to scare you!  Bengt aka "Insider" is on this forum and can help if there is a problem.  2Box has been sending out new ones asap.  The support on this forum is awesome, lots of folks who know plenty about edrums so if you have any questions, don't hesitate.

Still using my old ddrum3 hoping to afford a 2box soon, but also waiting for the 8" tompads. Why the 12" snare? What acoustic player uses a 12" snare!?

Yeah, that's what I've figured. I use an a-e converted 13" snare, which is the smallest diameter I find comfortable. I probably would get used to the 12" though.

Hello,

just got my drumit five kit yesterday .. I have been acoustic drummer since 1997 and now decided to move on to electric drums. These drums finally have that 'something' that was absent in other brands drums  :) Overall quality of the set seems to be quite good, but will likely replace hihat stand and kick pedal. One thing I do not understand is that why only 4gb flash memory?

Thanks to this site, I knew that some tweaking was needed before the set sounded great. But now it does! This may sound crazy but I have already ordered a Jobeky 13" snare and Smartrigger 16" ride .. 

You seem to be quite experts here, so let me ask your opinion about few things:

First, what is currently the best hi-hat available - and will work with the drumit module? Looking for "brasslike" feel, also mechanical operation should be close to acoustic hi-hat. I have high quality stands, so just need plates. Smartrigger?

Second, any experiences of using HK Audio Lucas XT for monitoring? Is there enough bass kick?

Third, what is the brand of the black mesh heads shipped with 2box and what brand(s) do you recommend? I would like to use brushes ..

Fourth, how to buy a 2Box 8" or 14" pad? If something goes broke, or would like to have a 2Box spare clamp etc. - where to buy?


Thanks for reading and Happy New Year to all!

Petri (Finland)

Hi guys, and ladies

                              I recognise a few names on here PuttenVR, Kryinstock and maybe a few others, Scott I've spoken to you on the phone a few times quite a few years ago when ordering parts for my old Ddrum 4 SE (which has been sold) so its nice to be where their are familiar faces, anyway I bought a 2 Box Kit on NYE and I am impressed, I have been reading some of the posts and I have a few things I would like to mention, but for now I am loving the kit, a big improvement over the Ddrum 4 SE, but saying that the Ddrum 4 is still a fantastic kit, the 2 Box blows everything else out of the water, just looking forward to some OS updates, and a software editor which we can use for adding hi-hats, cymbals, I am sure that will come in later releases, but I know Bengt and gang are working hard on this.

Happy New Year folks

Russ

Hi All

Ordered my 2Box in december and finally got it 10 days ago.  :D The Swiss distributor did everything possible to get the set asap for me. I'm really happy now, coming from a Yamaha DTXpress 4 Special kit says it all i think! :rock:
As a beginner (started playing drums 1 year ago) I can learn much more, better and faster with the 2Box because of the realistic pads compared to the rubber things from yamaha... Just the cymbals and the hihat have a strange behaviour.. As I have read the last weeks in this really great forum with fantastic people posting their comments and ideas this is the weakest point of the 2Box and no solutions are coming as far as I can see...
Let's wait and see if 2Box or another manufacturer will bring out a working cymbal set.

Maybe the Zildjian Gen16AE Cymbals will be a good addition. ;D ;D ;D

Post by: Evy on March 01, 2011, 04:38:32 PM
Welcome to the forum!  Glad you're happy with your kit.  I for one have no issues with the cymbals, to me they respond as good or better than anything else on the market.  I guess you've found how much of a step up sound/feel wise 2Box is compared to, well, anything.  However I think you're right in looking forward to the Gen16's.  What a great kit it would be combining 2Box and those!!!

Post by: supermonster on March 01, 2011, 05:03:09 PM
I'm really happy, especially about the Mark II hardware... Not becoming a friend of the 2Box cymbals has maybe to do with my routine... Absolute beginners should not complain about the drum set and better invest more time and energy in practice and following the drum lessons.  :D :drum2:

Hi 2Boxers around the world! :rock:

Now it's a month I have my Drummit5 at home and still I have this uneraseable smile in my face when I sit down and make my daily practice sessions. I ordered an additional 12" snare pad (as an additional floor tom) and a cymbal to be more flexible in using more sounds in one set.

The swiss 2Box and formerly ddrum distributor has posted some really great vintage video footage on youtube showing swiss drum legends like JoJo Meyer and Enzo Todesco playing triggered ddrum systems back in 1993. I was involved in this video recording sessions back in the early 90's and it is fun to see and hear what made ddrum so legendary. PS: Don't laugh too loud about the haircuts, it's allmost 20 years ago. ;D

Hello Everyone -

I am a former TD-20/ddrum4 user but have been away from edrums for a few years.  I currently play a wonderful Pearl Reference kit, which by the way, is orange.  Well, I guess its technically "Root Beer Fade" 8)

My other acoustic kit that I typically use to gig with is a Zickos acrylic kit, which is......yes, again - orange!  Ok, technically that one is really "Amber"  ;D

I also drive a Honda and yes, unbelievably - its orange!!! And just in case no one wants to own an orange car, Honda technically calls it "Citrus"  :P

So I ask you, what color *really* is the Drumit 5, technically speaking, of course? 
And please do not say "Salmon"!
:o

If it even remotely resembles orange, as it appears to me, then even I can't understand why I dont already have it!  Ahhhh, now I remember - still no US distributor! :(

Anyway, I am really looking forward to receiving the Drumit 5 brain I just ordered from Canada.  I have some old Pearl Rhythm Traveler toms that I will trigger with the Drumit 5 but will probably use my TD-20X for the HH and cymbals, since I already have Roland HH/cymbals pads and I only purchased the Drumit 5 module, not the entire kit.  My biggest gripe about the TD-20 has always been the toms so I am real excited about finally getting something up to my expectations there.  Eventually, I may combine my acoustic Pearl Reference kit with pads, triggers and both modules.  But that's for another day...

I definitely see some familiar names on this forum and its nice to be "back in the fold" so to speak.  Anyway, wanted to check in an say hi...

Jimmy C

Hey! I'm Ed from Sydney. I currently play a Roland TD12kx, the latest model, but, as it's widely known, they only improve the hardware and the looks of it and not the sounds in the box:(  

I'm not a pro, I just want to play along with my fave music and I'm considering switching to a 2box. Even when I know that I won't recover the costs of the roland, I'm tired of the same sounds, machine gunning and the horrendous hotspot. I don't want to spend hours fiddling with the settings just to eliminate that and I couldn't care less about cymbal swells, positional sensing or hihat expressiveness (I have a VH-11 and, believe me it's hard to set), that's why I'm thinking of taking the plunge.

I'm researching the best prices here in Australia, so far the best offer I've found is $3399 (2489 eur aprox). Any aussie with a 2box around here?

Alternatively, I could consider buying first the module and the hihat alone, which are available from edrum attic and try it with the roland pads and cymbals and see how it all works out. Just a couple of questions: 1 - Are there any differences in the pads of the 2 versions beside the 3 bolts? 2- What about the cymbals, especially the hihat? Are they the same?
I know the rack and the pedals have been improved already but I think I'd still replace them with my iron cobras ::)
Ok enough introduction, hope to see more 2boxes around and remember everyone has their specific needs so don't bash me about the comments regarding hihat expresiveness. :P
Cheers,
Ed

Hi Ed, welcome to the club
You won't regret switching from a Roland to 2Box
It's a huge improvement in terms of dynamics and sound
The pads are 10 and 12 inch and technically the same
There's 1 hihat pad and cymbal pads; the latter are all the same too
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: edcito on April 18, 2011, 10:45:51 PM
Thanks Putten, I've made up my mind and ordered the 2box module and the hihat :patbat2box:
I will try them with the "roll and" pads, if it works fine I'm gonna get rid of the td12 module and will have a hybrid kit. I forgot to mention that I'm an expat living in Australia and I have no idea how long I will be staying here, so I will much prefer a compact but powerful kit (I've own the td4 and td9 and they are compact but not so powerful hehe) so I might start adding the 2box pads and selling the "rool and" pads ;D
And I love orange! Why do people hate it? ok maybe the silver rack does not match it but I think on a black rack the pads would look sweeter :rock:

looking forward to the journey.

Hi all

I'm Phil and i'm a  :patbat2box:holic!! Oops, wrong forum.

I recently bought a Drumit 5 along with a Jobeky shell pack, I use it in conjunction with acoustic cymbals for gigging and have just done my fifth gig with it.

It's a bit of a learning curve after playing acoustic for too many years, but the quality is superb.

I run it through an active PA, the T Box pro Achat 1 x 12" subs & matching 1 x 8 tops. The kit and system have had some superb reviews.

I play for two bands, a latin jazz band at venues from small restauraunts to large corporate functions, so the gear has to be compact and versatile, and with a large concert band where I used to have to carry round loads of toys and effects, but no more as I just sample them and am getting an Alesis 8 pad unit as a midi trigger for the other sounds.

Here's a shot of my kit

Hey excellent 2box people, and lurkers :)

Hope you like the new look for the forum - still true to its orange roots, but hopefully a bit easier on the eye :)

Some new measures will hopefully further cut down on the level of spam registrations and general crapola, but as ever, please do keep using the "report" button on any posts that shouldn't be here, thanks!

Here stopping by and saying hello (going back to the original subject...), I'm not new here, it's just that my former account was gone with the 400-spam-accounts-clean-up, no worries because being a daily reader of the forums I had very few posts, I hope this one serves for UC to know that I'm a human being who deserves to survive the next clean up :)

Next week my kit arrives, we'll see if it leads me to leave the silent mode, hehe.

Good to hear from you Juan, I don't care about the post count neither, it seems ridiculous to me how other people in other forums brag about having 455000 posts... most of them saying "I agree" or "that's utterly rubbish!"

Hey Juan, I'm really sorry about that - you know what, I saw your account and decided you were real and tried not to delete it. But when you've just clicked 400 check-boxes I guess it's easy to make mistakes.

Hello fellow drummers.
Coming in from the left side of the Swedish stage just wanted to say hi.
I've been watching this 2boxgame for ages, nearly bought both Yammie DTX 950 and Roland TD-20 pro.. but as of today actually, are joining you guys with my brand new MK2.

Hope to spend some time here from now on.

Take care

Ha, yeah sorry Cuban... so busy can't remember who the 2Boxer's are on vdrums :)

I believe 2Box will succeed if they proceed carefully - they win hands down in a couple of areas, but have to play "catchup" in others before it's the ultimate module. A bloody good place to start though :)

Might wanna read some posts by Slap the drummer .... he is actually the one that sparked my interest in getting some new sounds into the module..... and WOW this module has some incredible capability for playing high quality samples with no latency problems ....

Ha, yeah, GAS is not as extreme as in the roland world but still.... Once you got a 32 Sd card you start asking yourself "now what VST should I use to create my own dsnd's and fill this bloody card" hehe

I've done the mod, easy as pie, now I just take the card out and insert it in my mac directly without using the usb port of the module. Hope you get your orange box soon. 8)

I think you'll find Ed was probably the first person Down Under to take the memory plunge.
On the pricing issue, do you think Roland owners would think twice about the opportunity of gaining 32GB of memory for just $80? I reckon they'd jump at it. Compare that to what you can do with a CF card on the TD-20!
Now make sure you have a play with the module before you do the mod!

Hehe, yeah, but I'd happy to see more aussies taking the plunge, firstly by purchasing the module and then by creating their own dsnd's out of their favorite VST.
By the way, the makers of Superior Drummer just gave their customers their (temporary) approval to create dsnds from SD2, but I'm sure Jman is posting it right now, so I better shut up and wait for his post :patbat2box:

I don't understand why these companies aren't releasing their own DSND's for the 2Box... another opportunity for money! In today's world of micro-transactions (iPhone apps, etc), companies are making a lot of money that way! Who'd pay $20 odd for a snare sound ready to drop in to their 2Box? I would!

Hello everyone.

I've been watching this forum for several days and decided to quit Stealth mode and give it a try.

I'm very interested in 2box offer. Especially today because i was able to test the Drumit 5 and was stunned by the stock sounds of the module.

Right now, i own a DTX900K and was really impressed by the 2box sound.

Cheers.

Hey

I just bought a 2Box and am waiting for delivery for the UK, so can't wait.

I wanted to let you know about eDrum Attic if you already didn't. They helped me out a great deal and seem to know what they are talking about without any sales bull. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Glad there is a forum, specially when the product is from such a small manufacturer, good resource. No doubt I will be looking in on a regular basis.

I play Yamaha Maple Custom and have been playing for 30 years. I have been out of the game for 3 years though so going to use the 2Box to get back into shape.

G'day peoples.

Rob is my name, I'm a known entity over on the VDrums Forum as "rasoo"

So... yep sold the TD20 epxanded and got myself a 2Box module and hats to replace it. I've tried it once before with mixed thoughts but I am giving it another shot as I was bored lifeless with the Roland module. Yeah it plays ok but I wasn't liking what I was hearing out of the PA one night.

I'm somewhat of a DIY'er... a few guys know of me and some stuff I do, so it will be interesting coming up with some solutions to 2Box issues as/if they arise.

Anyway, enough about me... see ya's 'round.

Rob.

Hmm.... nothing specific as there is quite a lot... Done quite a few kits and mods here and there.

But lets just say I like to make things. Lots of different things... sometimes for things that need other things to make those things better, and stuff like that. ;)

Hi everyone.

Just thought I'd do what it says and say hello.

After 13 years with my old trusty Ddrum4 I've finally come into the 21st century and bought a Drumit 5.  Ordered form Production Rooms here in Leeds it came just before Christmas week (within 3 days of ordering!!!). I've just got it set up in my practice room (or garage) and I know it's going to be brilliant once I fine-tune it to suit me.

I'm sure I'll get lots of good ideas from this forum.

Oh, and happy new year for this weekend

Hi there !

I'm also a newbie on this forum, so just thought I'd say hello.  I've been using a Yamaha DTXpress IV Special kit for the last 3 years, though got myself a Drumit 5 a couple of weeks ago (and have sold the Yamaha on ebay).  Drum It 5 wins hands down - its just great ! Its so much more responsive, feeling like a real acoustic kit.  I have never been tempted by Roland kits, though considered the Pearl EPro Live (though don't like the drum brain) or a JoBekey set up (very nice, probably quite similar if using the same brain).  I look forward to exploring the Drumit features, as I also have BFD2.  Thanks to 2 Box for producning a great up to date kit !  Also thanks for this forum !  :)

I recently decided to switch to orange mainly due to the fantastic and realistic drum library of the 2box module.I was a Roland fan for some years and had TD-6V , TD-12 and TD-20 modules along with a ton of other e-gear ( cymbals , pads etc) .Now i am selling almost all roland gear ( td-20 is already gone) and i am planning to get the 2 box module and hihat in first place to use with custom built diamond electronic drums .Later i might add 2box cymbals too.I believe this is the best ( and maybe only ?) source to get all the info a newbie like me needs.

Owned mine since February 2012. Been playing acoustic for more than 20 years, but mostly never for the last 10 (job and kids got me busy. Also the wife doesn't like seeing my Yamaha Recording Custom set up nor does she like hearing it! :'()

Love the fact that i can play drums again, albeit electronic ones, every night for an hour or so. The sounds are dynamite, especially the toms, snare and kick.

I was wondering, while I'm waiting, are there any videos online that show the module in depth? I mean it sounds fantastic, but I love tweaking settings and such, always good to know what I'll be laying my hands on!

Besides the number of samples .... One of the biggest factors in how large the files turn out is how long the sustain is. So for a tight dry snare the files are much smaller than say a Floor tom undamped with some room and ambiance. So even with snares built from SD2 or BFD2 with big room, and effects .... the head file would still generally be 60MB's or less, and that is a really extreme example .... generally 30MB's or less since the sustain time on most is 3 seconds or less. That is using 24bit sounds @ 44.1KHZ.

I'm new to this forum, and world of 2box (AND of drumming in general).
I'm not a drummer by any standard meaning, i just like to hit things with sticks, a habbit  I developed as a kind of hobby that won't let me go for last 2 years. Not good at it, but I'm trying, as much as time and my familly allows.
I recently bought used 2box kit in good condition, but without hihat :(.  I signed in mainly because i found a Manfred's thread about DIY hihat controller i'm very interested in, but now I see there is a lot of other usefull information here, so hopefully I will learn a lot from all of you.
So, again, hello to all of you,

and please bear with me and my probably stupid questions I'm about to post around.

Regards,
Sasa


Welcome to the 2box forum family Sasa.we are all here to help you unlock the potential of this great kit.  :)

Hi guys, just sold my TD3 and ordered a 2-Box MkII. Bit sad because delivery time changed from 2-5 days to 6 weeks. Looking for a faster, alternative, source now. I play drums for fun and not in a regular band atm.

Kind regards, Murgen (Netherlands)

PS if you know a shop close to or in the Netherlands with decent stock let me know.

Thank you, PuttenVR. Good to see you here. I managed to make a deal with Dijkman in Amsterdam. I start with their demo-kit and swap it when new ones come in.

Distributeur in Germany (Benelux) wrote better delivery is expected in Autumn.

I expect you upgraded to MkII too?

Post by: puttenvr on April 28, 2012, 09:06:54 AM
Nope. I only play my 2Box @home and for that the 1st rack is good enough. In terms of design I even prefer the 1st rack.

Hi guys,

I'm CrazyDrummer (real name Savtug) from the Netherlands. And i bought yesterday a new 2box MkII
I used the DTX-Treme3s for 3-4 years. But the sound of the 2box is unbelievable.
Here are some photo's of me :)

Hello from France!
I'm quite new to this forum too, even if I have already posted, just skipped this section, sorry! :p

I sold my TD-20X module as well but kept all the pads, cymbals and rack (Roland is the best for quality pads to me), and it's amazing with my new 2Box module (with sd extension mod + 32gb sdhc)!

2Box forum is almost dead in France (in fact all e-drums forums lol), so I'm pleased to have found such an interesting one!

See you!

Hi everyone

Just set up my 2Box kit yesterday, and although I'm still finding my way around it at the moment, I can safely say that the sounds are amongst the best I have ever heard from any e-drumming equipment...!!

Really pleased. :)

Just a quick question to canvass opinion on - regarding the snare mesh head - do you crank up the tension to get a more realistic snare response, or amend your acoustic kit (assuming you have one..!!) snare tensions to mirror the 2Box..? I have an acoustic kit for gigging with and intend to use the 2Box for mucho practice at home!!

Thanks, and really enjoy the forum, by the way!

hi peeps, new here - just registered ahead of the arrival of my 2box kit arriving on Thursday, I have been thinking about getting back into drumming after a 7 year absence having drummed for some 12 years before that.

This is my first venture into edrums having had a huge Pearl kit before.

No doubt I will be asking questions in future, so thanks to all in advance!

Hi Everyone

I was on here 6 months ago but no idea what I used for my name.. Anyhoo.. I have been so close to getting a Roland TD30 to go with my Jobeky kit.. Ive been on the ROland Vdrum forum for a while and its an amazingly supportive group but the more I learn, the more im tempted to get myself a 2box brain..

Ive seen just about every clip on you tube now and think its the way forward.. But I wanted to apologise in advance because when I order it this week, Im afraid Ill be here asking for help to

1. Expand it like Jman told me I could do on the Vdrum forum
2. Load my BFD Eco samples across to it if possible
3. erm.........

So, there it is.. Hi everyone and I hope to be of some use as Ive had many Roland modules and have a Jobeky kit with Yamaha PCY130s, PCY155, Roland CY15, CY14, CY5 x 3

Just need a module to start it off.. I bought the Jobeky with a Roland TD9 and hated it.. Sold it 2 weeks after I bought it..

Welcome to the forum Kev!
Just so you get an idea of how it works as far as using VST programs to build drum sample "dsnd's" for the 2Box module:
Here are a few videos Brian made concerning building BFD based drum sample dsnds for 2Box:
http://www.youtube.com/user/2BoxSoundCreation?feature=mhee
Info on DsoundTool site for BFD as well as Superior Drummer there:
http://www.shortestpath.se/dsoundtool/manual/bfd2.html
That info so you won't think it is just a couple mouse clicks .... it does require a bit of time and effort.
But the results can be astounding.
Card extender tutorial here:
http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php/topic,991.0.html
I have some of the SDHC card extenders here:

and another source for the card extenders from a forum member 6828:

Oh, and a thread about higher capacity SDHC cards compatible with the module here:

Hi all,

A lot of useful info here ! Made the step from Roland to 2box, actually the white pearl Diamond kit that member ronniev sold long time ago.
Took some time to set it up to my liking, updating the OS to 1.24 made a huge difference. Looking forward to future updates and new sounds.

Hello 2 box community,

I've just registered in the hope of finding out more before buying the 2box kit and have already posted my first question :) Hopefully I will become a fully fledged member of the community by actually buying it :)

I tried using ez-drummer on stage with my laptop but it crashed a couple of times then I came across 2box and thought wow that is basically what I was trying to do with my laptop :)

Regards to all,
Hatul.

Hi guys!

I'm a new owner of one 2box drum kit! So now I want to know more things about this kit and also try to get my problems fixed.
I have to say that I've been cheking around in my country and after asking many people..I guess I'm the only one that owns a 2box kit here in Chile. I haven't seen any 2box kits in Southamerica at the moment but I guess there are other around..
I got my kit from Spain because a good friend bought the kit and brought it to me here. I was triying to get the kit for almost 3 years, so now I'm happier than ever!
Hope you can help me and I can show some of my experience with the kit from now on.

Greetings from Chile

Hello every body,

Just to write few words on me.

First I'm french and I leave in Lyon near the alps. I play drums for 3 years.
I have a TD4 Roland kit that I've upgraded since one year with new snare, bass drum, floor drum from Jobeky in GB. I've bought EZdrummer to try to find better sounds than my TD4 module but this is not soo efficient. Today, I've heard a lot of good things on 2box and on his sound module and I think I'll change very soon.

I've started to read few topics which are very interesting and I'll continue and participate.

Thank a lot for your welcome. :drum2:

Hi, my name is Iain and I'm the proud owner of a new 2Box kit. Very impressed with most of it but a few niggles that more experienced members may have some advice on.
Biggest issue I have is playing along with Line In mp3 player, my kit has a seemingly intermittent delay whereby I hit the drums at the same time as the music but the feedback through headphones is fractionally later after a couple of bars. Same type of thing with the cymbals, while mp3 is playing there is quite often no response from a cymbal unless I hit it really hard. Stop the music and do the same thing and it works perfectly. Whilst i'm not expecting identical performance to my accoustic kit this is slightly ruining my feelgood birthday present to self feeling.  :(

I heared on this forum a minor delay is encountered when you have the module in a submenu, check if you have the module in the mainmenu.

I have mine permanently connected to a mixer and from there amp, headset and iPad are hooked up. No issues whatsoever.

Hey Fellow 2Boxers and enthusiasts:

I've been a lurker (reader) for a while now and even ended up registering a few weeks ago--but have yet to post.  So this is my one and I'm pretty damn excited about it -- as well as pretty damn excited to be the proud owner of a 2Box DrumIt 5. 

I would like to thank all the good folks on this message board for sharing their tips, tricks, successes and failures with the 2Box because I have learned a lot from you.  Thank you, very, very much.

A quick word about me...I'm a forty-two year old who was born, raised, and educated in New England--who now lives and works in the Washington, DC metro area (Arlington, VA).  My wife and our four year old son mean the world to me and fortunately, they love and support my drumming addiction.

I'm a former Roland and Yamaha owner and while each has its own strengths and weaknesses -- ever since the 2Box came out I've been drooling over its possibilities. 

Happy 2Box Drumming!

Welcome to the forum Hockeylifer and KevH .... I didn't know you had the 2Box module Kev. I've been using mine with my own drums and cymbals since March of 2011. Tested the TD-30 when they first showed it at NAMM and had no temptation at all to switch directions. I'm still happier with this 2Box setup than anything I've owned or demoed to date, especially after building my own extensive dsnd library for the 2Box modules over the last year or so.

Hi KevH...what's not working?

Mainly things on splitters, plus I am getting rim sounds on one of my toms, despite any effort I make to remove the rim sound, and awful cross talk from cymbals.
I have been very frustrated. I am also very disappointed with the storage available for sounds.I knew it was small but didn't realise how restrictive it was.
I will post a thread with some questions when I have searched around to see if the answers are already here.

JMan, thanks> I have had it about 3 months, but have barely played it as I have not had time to get it set right.

Hi Tim, welcome to the forum ... yup ... recognize you from vdrums and MCS too  :) I moved from the TD-20X modules to the 2Box modules ..... and very glad I did! I went to NAMM when they released the TD-30 with all the bells and whistles, and even that didn't change my mind. The 2Box module may not have a lot of Fancy to it, but it is one powerful sound module, especially with the open sound source with the option of adding new sampled sounds.

Hi! As of this week, I'm a 2Box owner.  I am making the transition from a TD-10 kit which I felt was starting to show its age.  I have been playing purely acoustics for the past 7 years, but am working on a new dance band project that requires the flexibility that only an electronic kit will afford me. 

Aside from a non functioning trigger pad out of the box, I'm fairly happy.  Judging by some of the demo videos online, it seems I need to tweak and calibrate things better.  The hi-hat (open hits mis trigger) and bell of the ride (doesn't trigger).... not so good at all.  The overall sounds.... fantastic. Looks like I need to dig in and do some learning.  Thank you for providing this forum. It seems to have a wealth of information!

Hi, welcome to the forum. For the Bell problem, there are adjustments that can be set. High, Med or Low for the Bell. You will want to set up the trigger parameters on the cymbal to suit you first then adjust that Bell velocity setting..... here's another thread that is somewhat related:

Pascal from France, ancient member of DDRUM forum, and DDRUM user. (DDRUM2 then DDRUM4SE) I see some great ex ddrum players ;)  Now thinkin about buying the best edrums, called.. 2box. ;) Next set I see in France I buy it  :rock: Tried 2BOX MK1 2 years ago and it was a nice and pleasant moment.

I had several kits, starting 20.. Hmm... 25 years ago with a Tama swingstar, then i bought a roland octapad, a Dtx 2.0, a TD5... and a DDRUM2 + a Stage  Custom. I play DDRUM since maybe.. OUCH... 10/12 years. And drums since 1996. I had my 1st cymbal when I was 16, for Christmas. It was (lol) a dragon crash 16".

As ddrum2 owner, asked Clavia for owners's manual 7 of maybe 8 years ago (It was a 2nd hand edrum) then "someone" :) everyone knows here, sent me the manual directly from ... SWEDEN. Received it, 7 days after my email...

Sold my DDRUM2 (it was a TANK) and bought DDRUM4SE.
Always have my DDRUM4SE.

2Box, Thank you for this and for your great DrumitFive.

Best regards from France (MARSEILLE)
and I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR ;)

Hi!

.oO(some hours ago I ordered a 2box kit... it is hard to wait for the delivery now... but so I have some time to say hello here)
 
The reason why I ordered a 2box drumit kit: Because I hate edrumms in general! (:

Prehistory: Round about 20 years ago as I was a student and I worked in my holidays to get a acoustic kit. Since I fell in love with a Ludwig lb552k, a dw bass and other not so cheap components it took me three years to complete my kit. Poorly I couldn't play drums 5 years laters until now because of the it-is-just-too-loud-problem. So... since about 15 years my adrum is stored disasembled in the flat here. Drumming fall into oblivion...

Because of a "accident" I read about modern edrums, about 2box and I thought: Was it really true that an edrum may sound close (closer) to a adrum? Could it make fun to play a edrum? Can I get a sound out of my headphone which will not offend my ears?! I don't know so far but I hope the best!

So at the moment it is hardly to wait until I got my kit... I guess I will miss the differenz zones/sounds on playing the e-snare. Hopefully the 2box drumit will make a lot of fun! As I read and heard so far the sound is not bad! The the huge amount of volume layers are amazing ("add" some zones in the future and maybe you got it - just I don't know how the get this solved technically).

Ok... ah and thank you for this forum here. Thanks for all the informations and interesting discussions here!

(looking at my calendar... we are close to the end of 2012: I wish you all the best for 2013!)

Best regards from s/w germany,
Stephan

Btw: I don't know if there is a nice metal/bronze snare like my Ludwig in the 2box head. If somebody knows/has a good sound file I would be very interested in this! Since I do not own very good mics it wouldn't sound that good if I try to record a sample by my own... (and sorry for my not so good english here).

Hi everybody

Just wanted to drop by and say hello. Finally received my 2box 4 days ago after a ridiculously long and cruel week of waiting. Looking forward to sharing ideas and knowledge - if I'll ever get to a point where I can help - and leeching of of you guys and your hard work :)

Best regards

- An easy to implement and useful feature would be repeat. Repeat can work as a delay as well if there is a decay setting. For this to be really useful, I like having a set number of repeats so I can dictate "X" amount of repeats, the time in between repeats and decay. Supper fast repeats to create frantic buzzes are cool and everything down to a subtle slap echo.

I'd also like to see a dedicated expression pedal assignable through a modulation matrix that would allow the pedal to be assigned to pitch, decay, sample select and even work as a trigger forward AND backwards. The Dynacord ADD-Two had some of this functionality and I used it all the time.

One other feature sound linking where trigger input X could trigger multiple channels/samples.

Hey all, glad to find you all here!

Name's Nathan. I've been a drummer over 23 years, but haven't played in about 12 years due to circumstance, relocation and other priorities.

Recently I've been getting "The Itch" really bad and gravitated back to Roland's V-Drums because that's what I used to have. They were amazing... Expensive, but amazing. These days it seems their flagship kit is way outta my ability to justify... So I started looking around.

Lucky me.

I'll be joining your ranks this summer when 2box FINALLY makes it's assault on the States.

If you're from the vdrum forum, you know me as Rusafee. If you drive Jeeps offroad, you might know my screen name Tyler Dirden. These days, I like to keep it real. I'm Nathan Otis. I'm good enough. I'm smart enough. And dog-gone it... People like me.

I'll be around.

Hello guys!

My name is Terry, I'm 31 and live in Belgium. I mostly play rock and jazz music for a little more than 3 years now (I play 2 hours a day almost every day).

I recently bought a custom Jobeky kit with a 2box module and cymbals.

Best regards to all of you guys!

PS) My mother language is french. I apologize in advance for the mistakes I will probably make in english! lol!

Hi Guys,

Been playing 36  years. I've played in Metal, Sleaze Rock, Punk, Pop Punk bands and am based in British Columbia, Canada.

I've been scoping out VDrums for the past year or two. I'm currently renting a Roland TD9 kit and to be honest it doesn't quite cut it for me. The sounds are two synthetic and have that machine gun effect doing rolls, and the size of the drums on this Roland kit are just plain tiny. I stumbled across people talking/praising the 2box kits on the vdrum forum and then began my research.

The Youtube videos/reviews I seen are extremely positive, and I love "from what I've heard" the sound of the 2box kit.

My dilemma is "Long and McQuade" the biggest music store chain in Canada carries 2box, but no stores have them in stock, and they haven't been in stock since January. They also don't have demo kits.
The sales guy I talked to, said I could buy the kit and if I didn't like it, I could bring it back...no hassles...which I thought was cool.

My question is, Did any of you guys buy your kit sight unseen and just bought it?

My music career is more of a hobby now, and I want the kit to keep up my chops, not disturb the wife, and have a simplified way of recording drums for my demos and professional recordings....so this seems to be the way to go.

Any insight, advice appreciated.

Regards,
Sandy

Hi all! New to forum, new to 2box. I currently own a mid-level Roland set for rehearsing at home and had plans to upgrade to TD-30 module to finally start exploring live usage of e-drums. But when I heard 2box, it convinced me so much that now I'm heavily leaning towards 2box. But first I'm trying to find out a few things that concern me.

I have searched the forum but haven't found exact answers to all of my issues. There are threads dealing with the same topics though. Overall my questions would make quite a long post so what will be the best practice to ask them, all in one new thread or to post to an existing thread on the same topic, even if it has last been active a couple of years ago already?

Thank you in advance.

But thought I'd say hello to everyone anyway.. Ill get the kit back at some point or ill move my family over to Oz and ship it where I live..  Just fed up of playing my mates HD1 (which I dont feel qualifies for a drum kit in the real sense lol)

Hi all,

I'm Makoki (Miguel is my true name) from the sunny and depressed Spain. I've been watching the forum for a long term before to decide, but now I'm here with my Jobeky + 2Box kit.

More than 20 years without playing, but a wrong decision on a hard to sleep night get me here again. I'm 48, back to play at 43. So 5 years drumming re-experience.

In the last 4 years I have spend time and money exploring different options before to come to this. Previous owner of a Medeli, Yamaha DTXpressIII, Roland TD-3, TD-6 and TD-12. But finally here....

Accidentaly, I'm electrical engineer, so I can help with some volts, amps and watts if nedeed !! In fact I have tweak most of my kits, even the acoustics for some lights!

Spanish mother tonge. Some abilities in portuguese and french if needed.

Many thanks for read !

Hello everyone, I've been a 2box owner since 2011, my set has snare, kick, 4 toms & 3 cymbals, and I update whenever they're available.  Earlier this week I updated 1.26 per 2box instructions using a macbook pro and this is a portion of what I got.  All of Kit 1,2,3 work. Kit 4: only crash #2 works.  Kit 5: all toms & both crashes work.  Kit 6: all cyms, snare, tom 3 & kick work.  Kit 7: everything but crash 1 works.  Kit 8: nothing works.  Kit 9: everything but crash 2 works.  Kit 10: only the kick & crash 2 work.  Kit 11: all dead but crash 2.  I contacted 2box and got a fast reply twice but neither of the offered fixes worked.  I used the same procedure as I have in the past where I download the file, drag it to the 2box icon, plug in the USB cable, power up the module in USB mode, it loads and the same results are had.  These are the results I got with Team2box's response which are listed below.  #1) Did not load after a dozen try's.  #2) Initialize showed NoFile in Kit, Unit & All. #3) I did not want to attempt reloading all the files listed in the library individually since they most likely would not R+W like 1.26.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  This is what 2box sent me to remedy the problem.  Peace, Leno. 8)>> If you also exchanged the drumit.dkt
file then this file is referring to the latest sound library 1.2. I suspect
you have previous 1.1

There are 3 alternative solutions.

1. Make a retrieve of all drum kits:
To retrieve the factory default settings for kit and unit parameters, go to
the UNIT-PREF page. Turn INIT to select Unit, Kit.., KtPrg (kit program
table) or All. Execute by clicking the INIT dial. Please note, deleted
sounds from memory will not be retrieved.
A complete manual featuring all parameter settings and useful tips on how to
use your DrumIt Five system is accessible via USB on the DrumIt
Five itself or available for download at www.2box.se. On the web site you
can read more about upgrades, the way the sounds were made, how to
download them and other useful information.

2. Use this enclosed drumit.dkt and exchange this one with the one you have
on the card. This bank file refers to the 1.1 Sound library.

3. Update your sound library to 1.2. go to this link and COPY FILES from
this folder. There is also a pdf instruction which sounds to remove and add.

When doing the module OS update if you only add the DrumIt126.bin file nothing should be missing as far as instruments or kits. All should remain the same. If you also load a new Drumit.dkit for instance from the website that could cause this sort of thing. In the future it is a good idea to backup everything from your 2Box module onto the computer.

At any rate, if you did load a new Drumit.dkit file you might not have the new .dsnds associated with that .dkit file and would need to download and install some files from the 2Box website to have the latest kits in the module.

Following step no. 3 is prolly what you should do at this point.


If it turns out your files are corrupted for some reason you can replace them. 
All the original OS 1.24 sounds can be downloaded here:  http://www.hyperactive.de/support/2box
and newly added sounds on the 2Box website:  http://www.2box.se/US/pages/downloads/

If you only added the DrumIt126.bin file, you might try adding it again for the heck of it. But it sounds like the above instruction 3 is where you are at now at this point. J

Post by: Jman on August 18, 2013, 12:28:44 AM
After thinking about it, I do have the original factory Drumit.dkit file from my module. This is the original .dkit file from the module Sept. 2011. It would put the module back to that configuration, the OS version will still be 1.26 though since you already installed that. You are welcome to try this if you like:
https://files.secureserver.net/0sop4w1jutq9zY
You would need to replace your Drumit.dkit currently on your module with that .dkit file.

My name is Chris Snow (csnow).  I have been a long time member over at vdrums and have been an avid edrummer for years.  I live in San Antonio, TX and my vocation is network/security IT.  In the past, I have owned a TD10 w/exp, TD20 w/exp, and DTX900 drum sets.  I recently departed Yamaha and moved over to 2box based on Daniel and Jman's reviews.  I am hooking up the 2box today.  Just recently, I almost walked away from the hobby for good but I have decided to keep on playing.  My kit consists of 2box module, Gen16 cymbals, Jman triggers for the crashes and ride, 6 piece Mapex kit with Pearl Tru-Trac heads.  I know everyone hates on the Pearls but I dont find them all that bad to be honest.  I like the Aquarian in-head system but I gave up hope waiting for them to release anything other than the 14" head which drove me to go with the Pearl heads.  After playing on the Pearls, I will probably keep them for some time.  Anyways, that is the high points about me.  I already see a lot of familiar users from vdrums.com, but I look forward to meeting other edrummers who prefer sound quality and technology over brand loyalty.

Nice to see you are staying in the e-drum game, after all! Good to hear you are hanging on to the Tru-Tracs too - I've always liked the feel they gave, under the sticks. I deeply hope you don't run into/will be spared from any 'reliability issues' as reported with them!

Great to see you Chris, and glad you are giving it another shot on the drums. I haven't been putting any time in on the drums myself. I just haven't been inspired much in the last year or so, but I went ahead and ordered a Throne Thumper ...... hoping that might give me some renewed inspiration via a "kick in the arse" so to speak ;D

Looking at Abe Laboriel Jr is very inspiring, the big guy drums from toe to head. And the startup of a new rock/blues coverband gives me the inspiration to work on my skills. Played on the Warlord kit setting just now and boy, can that 2Box make a thundering sound  :rock:  (and the throne thumper really add something here, many kicks in the ... :) ).

Hi all!  My name is Mark. I am a civil engineer and I live in sw florida. I have been drumming almost 5 years. I currently do not have a kit due to being in grad school. I sold my kit because I did not have the time to play between work and school. I also had someone who wanted to by my last kit because he wanted to learn how to play.
I have a few questions for ya'all.  Same old dilemma…don’t know what kit to buy!  I have been out of drumming for about 11/2 years because of grad school. In the past I have had a Roland TD11, 20 and a Yamaha DTX750. They were all great kits. I learned a little bit from each one. If I had to pick what I liked about each one in a brief description; I liked the pads better on the Roland, but I liked the cymbals and hi-hat much better on the Yamaha kit. I also enjoyed the Yamaha module more
I have never played a 2box kit simply because they are a rarity in the local neighborhood music store. (Well, maybe not for long.) From what I see and hear on YouTube, I believe I will try a 2box, mainly because of the realistic acoustic sounds. I wish the module had some sort of training functions like the Roland and Yamaha. Good features in my opinion.
How do you all like the drum pads? I am not very excited about the drum pads from what I see on video. (Like the Jakobe kits) Watching the videos, it appears that the pads shake quite a lot? Is it from the pad mounts? The rack looks nice and sturdy.

Hi all!

I've just entered into the world of e-drums for the first time by buying a 2box module and a set of gen16 cymbals, plus I bought a Roland PM-30 for amplification . I've made my own kit by converting a Pearl Rhythm Traveller that i picked up for a bargain £40. I've recovered it in a brushed aluminium finish, mounted it on a drum rack and put Z-ED Triple-X heads on. I'll post up some pics when I get the chance, it's turned out to be a great little kit - 13" Snr, 10" TT, 14" FT, 20" KD. I like a small compact kit as it makes me play more creatively.

I've been a drummer for 35yrs now and sold my beautiful Sonor S Classix Birch/Grained Maple Satin finish kit with Zildjian K Custom Hybrids just before christmas to fund switching over to e-drums. The 2box module was my first choice as I've never really liked the sounds on the Roland kits, even their latest top of the range stuff. The 2box capabilities just knock everything else out of the park as far as I'm concerned, especially being open source, it's an amazing piece of kit!

I've made the switch over from acoustic mainly as I rarely gig any more, most of my time over the past 5 years has been recording with various session guys in my area, although I don't consider myself a session drummer in as much as I don't make a full time living from it, it's more a part time thing as I'm self employed and am able to structure things around recording if need be. With the ease of recording with e-drums it just made perfect sense to me to make the switch knowing that I can easily play live gigs with this setup should I decide to get out there a bit more and enjoy the vibe of an audience.

I've got to be honest and say I'm a complete noob with all this stuff and getting to grips with the 2box module seems quite daunting as it can do more than I ever contemplated. Also, I'm one of those people who has to know exactly how it all works, so I think I've set myself a big challenge! Fortunately I have a good head for technical stuff and with your help I'm sure I'll be fine in the end.

Please forgive me if I ask some ridiculously simple questions to begin with, I cringe at the thought of it, but everyone has to start somewhere. Please be kind to this noob, I have a god sense of humour so if you do rib me I'm sure I'll be able to handle it but getting burned down in flames is bound to hurt - hopefully I won't be so stupid as to deserve it!

Cheers  :)

Welcome to the forum Mark and SaviDrums. Mark, browse the forum for more individual posts about pads and hardware or ask questions. You will prolly get a better response if you start a topic specific thread somewhere other than in the welcome room ;D
There will be more kits to see and play in the US in a few months I suppose, but as far as the pads they are well, built from aluminum not MDF, and literally have been run over by a car and still work fine.

Hello forummembers.
My name is Bert and i follow this forum for about 1,5 jear. It's good to be a member now. First i will thank all members for the good and valuable input. Especially Louis (dsound) and Lustar (SDSE) and Jman.
I bought my kit in 2012.  End last year i bought another kit from a guy here in the Netherlands. Sn's  modules: 01968 and 02699. Both with 32 GB upgrade.
I put some triggers in 2 rototoms and a chrome snare (rogers) with mesh heads (682). I also put some triggers under an old hihat (2 crash now). Recently i made some constructions for the 2 kick pads. Now they ar stand alone. After i paint them i will upload some pictures.  I use BFD2 with some expansions (BOMB / decatom).
Beside this amazing superkit with great sounds, i have a project to improve: a sort of octopad i've made. I can use it with one module. It's handy and portable.
Regards,  Bert.

Welcome to the forum Bert. Great to see you have a passion for the DIY A to E drums .... and you are using the best Edrum module out there! I also have the Deccatom pack. I use those on my Lectrabons I built several years back. I used to have to edit regular tom sounds in my Roland module to emulate Octoban sounds, much better having real samples in the 2Box module!  8)

Hi all, just joined after checking this place out the last couple of weeks so its nice to be here officially now, im in no way technically minded so joining is going to be such a help for me, I've got my kit set up with a Roland PM 30 and have been loving it from the day i first hit the kick drum, felt the need to put new kits and samples on it and this is how I found the forum, and thx to Lustar today I now have his SDSE with Reaper installed  - also im putting the 32 gig mod in tomorrow thx to the very detailed post by Manfred I believe , if all goes well I will have my Steven slate drums on my 2box which without this place would have taken a near miracle for me to manage

best regard Paul 4#

Hi All,

just joined this forum, after searching it unregistered for hours :-)

My name is Bas, living in the Netherlands, drumming as a hobby for 2 years now.

I recently bought a USED 2box drumit five + gen 16, and I really LOVE IT so far!

Only thing is, the guy i bought it from, removed most factory sounds from the module to add his custom sounds.
Though the custom sounds are great, I would love to try out the factory sounds, loops, songs etc, but cannot find 'em anywhere.

Note: The hyperactive.de site seems to be down (under construction), so that's not an option on short term.

Suggestion anyone?

Thx!

Hi Bas, I bet you bought that kit from Johan Boere. :)

If you live close to Oudenbosch I can load your module with the stock-kits and souns :)

hi there,
since yesterday I live in a shared appartment with this little orange guy near Stuttgart, Germany. Playing ab. 20 years but after 3 years without any opportunity to play in recent years I needed "someone to talk to", you know what I meant,... a kit! On first sight it was quite spontanously though I read a lot about it, went to a local dealer and compared it for a while, and realitzed that this guy and me woud be a perferct match.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys,  hope I can contribute to solivng problens and participate in interesting discussions.
Cheers to all you folks around the world!

Hello 2box family,
 I recently picked up the 2BOX MODULE after reading great things about it on the web. This will be my first E Kit,  I have always played acoustic drums.  I decided to convert my kit with internal triggers and so on.
  I realize I have a problem though. I suck with computers and  I can't seem to get my module communicating with my Windows Vista pc. 
 I have read the manual, spent time time here looking at 50 plus pgs and my head is going to explode. I really want to learn this thing, so if anybody could please tell me if I need more than just to download the editor? Was there a CD/ or drivers to install when you bought the whole kit?
 I have been successful at tuning the triggers I have with the module. Do I need to download the new os since its a new module? I have downloaded the editor already to my pc and I have been able to find a bass drum and play sample loops from the site and play them.
How do I get them over to my module?  Could I possibly need to make changes on my computer to allow this?  I understand this is so elementary but I will be so stoked if for now I can just get some new songs to play with and build some realistic sounding kits, that's why I chose this module anyway.
If you can help me, I sure would appreciate it...
Thank you.

Hi and welcome,

You don't need special drivers:
Quote
If you haven't made the SD card mod you need to connect the module to a computer with a USB cable (same type of USB cables used for printers):

    Turn off the module if it's open
    Connect the USB cable from the module to the computer
    Press and hold the left button just above the DrumIt Five screen (first of the 3 buttons) then keep pressing and turn on the module, it will start in USB mode.

The module should then appear in the list of external drives on your computer. While it's connected you can copy .dsnd and .dkit files from your computer to the module. When you have finished copying the files, turn off the module and turn it on again the normal way.
taken from my DrumIt Five FAQ (http://www.lustark.com/faq?catid=2)
also look at the 2Box FAQ (http://www.2box.se/World/pages/faq/)

You may need to download the new OS if 1.26 is not installed already, you just have to copy it to the module, but make sure to backup everything to your computer first.
The latest manual 1.2x is also recommended in case you have the 1.24 manual. http://www.2box.se/World/pages/downloads
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: Junior on October 07, 2014, 09:25:36 PM
Wow, this really sucks. So, I figured out how to download loops to my module. However I have lost my kits. Upon rebooting the module power I get an error or " no kit files available".
Unbelievable, as if I wasn't already having enough trouble.
 I can't seem to get back the kits through the unit data button. I can't seem to even download the new os.
Weird stuff!    Btw, I had is 1.28 wich isn't available on their website. Does this mean I lost out on the latest and greatest?  I'm  starting to think 2box isn't for me. It seems this module would be cool for someone really proficient with computers.
 Please, please, please if anybody here could give me a clue besides telling me to get a Roland or read the manual again.   I need to get get this thing back up and running, and I don't want to give up on the module yet.
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: Lustar on October 07, 2014, 10:24:35 PM
Did you unplug the USB cable after copying the files? Don't worry the worst that probably happened is that you may have deleted the DrumIt.dkit file in which case you'll just have to copy it again.

Here's what you need on the module:
Quote
    at least one module firmware file named DrumIt***.bin. The latest is DrumIt126.bin
    at least one .dkit bank file, usually named DrumIt.dkit. It's used to store module settings and settings for up to 100 kits.
    some .dsnd files. They can be placed anywhere on the card but it's recommended to sort them in folders
(taken from my FAQ)

1.26 is supposed to be the latest, if you have a version called 1.28 that would be great news, unless it's a typo? If you have a file named DrumIt128.bin on your module please share it here.

Step 1:
Connect your module to your computer and backup everything: select all folders and files and copy them in a folder on your computer.

Step 2:
Copy this file to your module: http://www.2box.se/download/operating/DrumIt126.bin
Check that you have a file named DrumIt.dkit, if not, copy this file: http://www.2box.se/download/operating/dkit/DrumIt.dkit
If you replaced the DrumIt.dkit you will lose all your kit settings, it will revert all kits to default.

Thanks for getting back to me and the info I will try going through your advice/links  later when I am fresh and have slept on it.
I don't think I unplugged the usb without having turned off the module first. Well anyhow, I did download the os again, I think, lol!  I'm not sure what happened to get it back. I did however lose all my trigger settings and all of the kits sound horrible, not even like they did when stock. They are a lower volume, less thick and sound like new kits. Have any ideas about this ?  Btw, my module os still reads 1.28   can't find where to share a picture on here right now... I'm rattled, I need a beer. Lol!

Thank you for your reply, I'm very appreciative.

There is a Boot # and and OS # ..... just for the heck of it, could you check the Boot# also?

As far as the kits sounding different.... the stock settings on the modules shipped with Rubber head pads to the US were quite a bit different from the European module/kits with mesh heads, it could be something like that. Also, whatever tweaks were previously done to instrument volumes and mixer volumes, output destinations, etc. .... if you did a reset, that would all change.

Also, if you could copy that Drumit128.bin file from your module to your computer and then upload it somewhere on the net where Lustar could download it, I know he would be interested in checking that out. So would I. That Drumit.bin file is only about 105KB ..... so it is really small and could be easily attached to an email also. Here is Lustar's contact info where you could email that file. http://lustark.com/contact

The easiest is to get a free flickr account or free photobucket account. Both of them are very easy and allow lots of GBs of picture/video/file storage. And you can link your photos from there. Several of us on the forum have free accounts from those sites.
https://www.flickr.com/    http://s1296.photobucket.com/

It would be interesting to see if that Drumit128.bin file is actually a different OS, or if someone along the way just changed the number in the file title. Did you buy the module used or new?

Hey guys! I have a Roland TD-8KV kit/module and am thinking about swapping the TD-8 module for a 2Box. I'm assuming this is compatible? I'd be using it for practising and also a bit of recording, so the better sounds and multi-track audio outs are swinging it for me...!!

Can anybody give me an idea of how 'active' the 2Box community/company is? Is it pretty much a dead product now or are they still updating/coming out with a new model anytime soon that I should wait for? I've already posted some thoughts in the 'wishlist', like mutlitrack audio outs over ADAT or USB or SPDIF or similar.... That would make my decision much easier!

Also, how simple/easy is it to add your own samples and have them sound as good/realistic as the built-in ones? Could I rip some of my purchased VST drum samples (like Toontrack EZX kits etc) to the 2Box and still have the various multi-sampled hits etc??

Looking forward to chatting with you all! :)

Hopefully somebody else will chime in on the recording via outs, etc. USB on the 2Box is only for editting, transferring files, updating OS..... between computer and module. No Audio transfer via USB. Personally, I record via 8 individual outs to a mixer and old style 24 track digital recorder. But most people just do their recording via MIDI. MIDI recording gives you all the individual instruments separate plus you can change the drums or cymbals later if you decide a different instrument would fit better, etc.

As far as loading the module with VST sounds, absolutely. Not only can you load sounds as good as the stock module sounds, you can do much better than that IMO. This is the thread you want to look at to get some idea of that, Lustar is the MAN:  http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php?topic=1544.0

I've got a bunch of video demoes up, this one has a few of the newer 2Box kit soundsets, as well as some VST kits I have built and loaded into the module, that gives a good idea what you can do:

Hi, just joined these great forums, I am a potential 2Box user.

I was planning to swap out the module from my Alesis DM10 kit for the 2Box, anyone have any idea whether there will be any compatibility issues with the pads? I guess my cymbals will be limited to a single, non-chokable zone until I buy the 2Box ones, but would I be able to get up and running with the module and my Alesis hardware.

Been doing a lot of reading about SDSE and other interesting things like the Dkit editor on the forums. Curious to know whether anyone has any idea about the new products that 2Box have in development, as per a video I saw, hoping it's not a module! Should I just ignore that information anyway and get a 2Box like I plan?

Hope to be a valuable contributor in the coming weeks, cheers everyone!

Thanks again, Lustar! I take it you're the resident troll... Or wait, is that supposed to be me?  :animal:

I have a Zildjian Gen-16 set, so I should be covered for the hi-hat, though my crash and ride are definitely sub-par. Should be able to manage with my existing cymbals for a while though, just hoping I don't have any compatibility issues. I've modded my Alesis kit to be more like Roland kits, with a cone for triggering, as opposed to the reflector plate style trigger they normally have. Hoping that should suffice for getting the most out of the 2Box.

I'm a new member, located in the Detroit, MI area (USA), looking to make the e-kit plunge very soon.

After much searching and research, it sounds to me like the 2box system is one of (if not THE) best systems available, even compared to much more expensive options from other companies.

I look forward to getting to know everyone here, and hopefully assimilating some of your experience and knowledge, so I can answer my many questions about the 2box kit, and recording in general.

Hello!

DIY musician and audio engineer from Sweden here! (Acturally about 20km from the 2box HQ  ;)). After some 25 years with all kinds of compact pad solutions to program DAW drums and percussion I've finally learnt some chops playing the real thing!

A digital kit is my only option though and after a few months of research I've ordered a Drumit 5 kit with an additional cymbal pad. Key decision points were the use of samples (--> audio quality) and the only separate output brain in the price range. And a seemingly strong community :)

I'll use the kit mainly for recording, both direct audio and triggering Superior Drummer. I plan to integrate my good ol'e 1990 vintage ddrum PadStation, triggering additional DAW sounds via MIDI. However, I've retired the Clavia ddrum Kick, to become the start of my modern arts collection  ;D

Looking forward to talk to you!

I thought maybe it was time to post here, since I've been lurking anonymously for quite a long time. From what I've read, my transition into edrums is like many others. I've been playing since I was 8 (51 now), on a vintage Rogers kit with additional Rototoms and a plethora of Paiste Signature cymbals. A few years back I tried a DIY project and converted the Roto's with homemade piezos and some Ddrum triggers, but I got frustrated with the mishits, sensitivity, and general feel. I think I had a TD6 module at that time.

About a year ago, after not playing much because of the dreaded noise factor in my project studio, I started thinking about a Roland kit. Long story short, I bumped into some 2Box folks on the Vdrums forum, watched every video and read every review on the net, scoured this forum, and here I am!

All I ever really wanted was to be able to play and record my acoustics quietly, so I could put the time in to really get my chops back. If I can have an e-kit that feels and sounds relatively close to what I'm used to, I'll be very happy. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles, although the ability to have some different sounds/kits at my fingertips is definitely appealing (especially if they're real samples, and/or samples I can create and load myself).

So after really comparing the Drumit5 to the Roland TD15KV (because of the similar price range), I've decided to take the leap and go 2Box. I still need to sell a few items to fund my purchase, but I'm basically going to buy the standard setup, along with an additional tom and cymbal. I'll keep a few of my Paiste's and use my DW5000 double kick pedal and DW5000 hat stand.

I'm just more than impressed with the 2Box kit, and especially the module and it's open system. Looking forward to spending a LOT more time here learning and sharing. Go Orange!!

hy krisondrums,
I'm sure 2Box is the right system for you. Now I play the set for 1 year. But I think the work is never going to end and I will never be 100% satisfied.
This is the fate of the electronic drummer. But that is also the challenge.

Hi Kris!

I was comparing the same kits and also went for Drumit5. Maybe I felt a little bit more in control with the TD15KV, but with regard to the 2box open system, better audio quality and separate audio outputs there was really not much doubt. Also, the specific settings of the demo kits maybe made that perceived difference.

Eelcpme,both of you! I have owned the td 15 as well as the td 30 modules only  and sold both to end up with the 2 box module and honestly never looked back, Welcome!

New user here.  Just picked up a used Drumit 5 along with Jman's SD card mod and hi-hat converter box.  Loving the module so far - I've used Lustark's great software to convert 3 or 4 SD2 kits and they sound fantastic!

My edrum history:
Alesis D4 (with the old DIY Remo practice pad triggers)
Alesis DM5
Roland TD6
Roland TD8
Ddrum 4se (sad to let that go)

Once I discovered VST's I downgraded to the Roland TD4 to use as a TMI until I finally discovered the Drumit 5 capabilities.

Thanks to Jman for the SD card mod and hi-hat converter box.  Both work great.  Although, since finding a steal on the Gen16 HH & DCP setup I may go that route.  The sound doesn't compare but I love the playability.  Not sold on the ride though - may end up with Jman's trigger for the Gen16 cymbal instead.

Either way - great forum!

Welcome to the forum! Gotta love 2Box's ability to play VST quality straight from the module! It is the top of the heap IMO. I wouldn't trade it for any other module out there, even with the "top of the line" modules that are priced much higher! I love being able to load and play the sounds I want.

Agreed.  It's stunning to me that people would fork over the money required for the flagship Roland modules when they could get better sound, albeit with some effort involved, from the 2Box.

hello all, thought I'd join in to learn more about 2box and vst's   
Ive been a drummer for 38 years and played e drums for 16 years. vst's are very new to me and going to be very different that what i'm use to, so i'm here the learn.

ive owned  roland td8,
                              tdw20
                              td30
                              diy kit
and played a td 7 for a couple years.

Hello everyone, Just wanted to let you all know that I have joined the 2box world. Just purchase a 2box module 2 days ago and very excited to get it in my possession . I would like to thank alot of the threads here that helped me make the decision, but most of all Jman. Watching your videos and reading your posts inspired me to purchase the 2box module.  BTW your vistalite kit sounds amazing. Im looking forward to exploring the 2box and seeing what the future brings.

So I guess I'm supposed to pop on and introduce myself.  I recognize plenty of names here from over at vdrums.  I used to post over there pretty often but got burned out.  (moniker over there was dschrammie)
Anyway, I've owned a few different modules, but the one I've had the longest is the TD-10.  I've actually just been using it as a MIDI interface to trigger Superior Drummer.  Unfortunately, my DAW computer crapped out a couple months ago (I can't be too upset...it ran well for probably 10 years).  I transferred everything over to another computer that I happened to have, but it's not nearly as powerful as the previous, plus the audio interface is old enough that it just isn't behaving well at all with the replacement computer.  The result is that I've had to go back to using the built in voices of the TD-10.  It's fine, I guess, for my basement needs...but it just isn't nearly as satisfying after hearing the Superior Drummer voices for so many years.

That brings me here.  I really don't feel like going through the process of building another computer, plus having to purchase another audio interface.  The thought of being able to load Superior Drummer voices to a module is VERY intriguing to me.  So here I am...hoping to learn a little more about this module and hopefully even find someone who may want to sell one used (would be very difficult to get my better half to agree to the cost of a new module...hence the reason I've had a TD-10 for so long!).

I guess I'll get started on reading...a lot.  Looks like the process of loading Superior to the 2box Drumit5 is a little involved, and I'll have to get my head wrapped around whether I can continue to use a Roland FD-8 hihat controller and CY-5 for a hihat, or if I'd have to upgrade that stuff as well.

Hello dear 2Box fans.


What a cool forum here, I'll introduce myself, my name is Technobeatdrummer and I come from the Netherlands.
And I play on a converted A-kit with Pearl TruTrac Heads and a Pearl E-Pro Live RED-box module.
But I find the module not all great sound and wanted to ask you whether it is possible to 2Box sounds/kits load into the Pearl E-Pro Live module?

Would love to hear from you.

No, you can only use your on board sounds or extra sounds/kits purchased through the Epro live Soundshop: http://www.redboxsoundshop.com/

Even if it were possible and the 2Box format worked with the Pearl Epro live, the 2Box module handles much bigger/deeper sample size ...... way beyond the capabilities of the Epro live.

Might as well say hi also... I didn't post much at vdrums but was on edrumming (or was it edrummer?) back in the day. Anyway, I found this site and bought the 2Box module. I could never get a snare sound to my liking on my TD20 and read good things about the Drumit Five stuff so, here I am. I'm still trying to get my head around all the VST stuff, DKit Manager, SDSE, etc. and am still playing around with the demo versions.

Now, I'm tweaking my old A2E kit and have pretty much decided to dump my cross-bar trigger setup having just gotten and tested an Aquarian OnHead. Man, it triggers sooo much better, has zero cross-talk (something I've battled with at gigs) and if something should ever happen during a gig, I can just take off the OnHeads and go acoustic.  8)  My A2E mesh head/cone trigger kits days may be numbered!

Welcome to the forum Scott! :rock: I am very happy having changed over from the TD-20X's I was playing previously to the 2Box modules. A good thing about the open architecture is you don't have to be worried about getting tired of the onboard sounds. While the onboard sounds and additional extra sounds available at the 2Box website are very good, with the open architecture you can add or change sounds when you want. And the 2Box will reproduce excellent VST quality drums with no latency.

I wouldn't try to talk you out of the On-Heads ..... but just to chime in: I have been using my own crossbar design A/E kits with the 2Box for over 5 years now with excellent results. I actually played my own side by side with the stock 2Box pads and prefer mine. Her is a little PDF I did, it is from a thread dealing with a center mount Hart snare, but the process is similar for setting up the trigger parameters:
https://files.secureserver.net/0swlzF9hPW6IC8  In the thread there was mention of using a Remo mufl ring, but that should not be necessary when parameters are setup right. J

Post by: Skidpuppy on February 24, 2015, 06:55:21 PM
Thanks jman.

I have a Hart snare and it's always triggered inconsistently no matter how much I tweak settings. The rest of my kit is DIY and works much better than the Hart ever did. I really just need to rebuild the triggers on my toms but I'm done with the Hart snare and will keep the onhead for that.

Hart triggering is generally reliable. Have you checked the state of the foam column. If it's deteriorating, that affects triggering.

I'm sure others have had better experiences with their Hart drums.  My snare just never triggered that well for me even with my TD20. I had miss hits and edge sounds when hitting the center. I've fixed the leaning cone tower, replaced foam, tweaked and tweaked.....  I'm done with it.

It's been 5 days since I became a proud owner of 2box brain.. I decided to go the DIY route, ordered the cheapest drums I could find (Millenium MX200 8", 10", 12") and now I'm waiting for my package to arrive and hoping I can convert them into six lovely mesh pads..

Please, I need all your fingers.. ;-)

Thank you for all your knowledge and expertise!

Hello All
Im from Tasmania small island state south of mainland Australia. Ive been lurking around here for sometime.
I play in an 80's revival/tribute band.
We try to clone the tunes rather than cover them so authentic drum sounds is very important for us.
Ive been using an old TD-10 until recently. The old TD-10 has done a good job and is very flexible with a good set of onboard FX to work with. The TD-10 was struggling and showing its age with a relatively limited set of stock sounds that are at best, a compromise.

Our show runs somewhere between 40 and 45 tunes and there is an individual kit built for each song including Simmons SD5! In several ways, I miss the Rolands FX section which is easy to work with and change quickly.
Exporting out the 2Box .dsnd sound files, processing them with 'verb and delay and then putting them back, test playing them and then further tweaking of the drum sounds is a time consuming and laborious task and I have spent weeks on this.

Results tho are really pleasing and Im loving the sounds I have been getting using stock 2Box sound files and many others others I have gathered.

This is my rig which started life as an Alesis DM-5 Pro. Not much Alesis left now apart from the rack, one pad, the kick drum and one old single zone cymbal as a hi-hat running thru one of Jmans hat controllers.
That one Alesis pad is used mostly for percussion or the odd high tom.
I find the kick pad setup dead feeling and unstable with double kicks and thats just about to be replaced with a Mapex 16" floor tom converted to a kick drum and a Triggera trigger which I scored for bugger all.
Toms are all Pintech Concertcasts and the snare is a 14" Phoenix. Visulite Cymbals and Axis A21 kick pedals make up the setup.

Cheers and here you go.

New here, I've been on VDrums forum for quite awhile. Quite a few names here look familiar. Hey to all.

I'm seriously thinking about taking the orange module plunge to the 5 or 3 depending on what the 3 lacks.
What I am not sure about is should I

1. Keep the TD30 and TD9 (just add the 2Box).
2. Keep the TD30 and replace the TD9 with 2Box.
3. Keep the TD9 and replace the TD30 with 2Box.
4. Do something else. Suggestions?
I currently have 11 pads (all mesh) and 8 cymbals + hihat (VH13).
I know I would need the Jman hihat mod box and card mod.

I am leaning towards #1 and using splitters for 10 inputs to the TD30 and 2Box the rest come from line out / in of the modules. Does that make sense?

Selling one of the Roland's to help finance the 2Box is not necessary but an option I have.
Should I have posted these questions somewhere else?
Soooooo many options!
What would you do?

Welcome to the forum, I recognize you as a frequent vdrums.com flyer :)

Well, several of us here ..... like Daniel (fulrmr) started out by simply adding a 2Box module side by side with our Roland module/pads. That is what I would suggest ..... Playing side by side, at least for Daniel and I, it wasn't really either one of our original plans to ditch the Roland modules, but that was the result, because the comparison soundwise is the spoiler.... especially with the open sound architecture and the capability to change out your module sounds at will.
The good news: Pricewise if you know where to shop you can pick up a Drumit Five module for about $899. And when the Drumit Three comes out, with the same amount of trigger inputs and an even lower price ..... multiple modules are quite affordable.

Here's a quote from a thread Daniel posted in a few months back about when he finally decided to ditch the TD-30:

Many of us were not "wowed" with the module right out of the box. I had the TD-30 and 2Box side-by-side for a year and although the 2Box was winning the challenge, it was only after I loaded some kits from S2.0 that my mind was completely blown and the TD-30 was then sold. The boys at Vex do a superb job with the Roland gear (I had most every one you could buy for my TDW-20/20X modules)...but they cannot match the quality of true deep layered samples that are at your disposal in the 2Box.

Thank you Jman for the response.
When you get a chance can you email me current prices on the hihat mod box and 32meg card mod?
I am going to wait til the 3 comes out before I decide which module so no big rush.
That gives me some time to read this forum and get a better understanding of the 2Box module.
I have downloaded the latest firmware manual also so that should help.
It does sound like I will be following you and Fulrmr's footsteps.

I think when the Drumit Three releases the price dif will be somewhere between $100 - $200 less. With less buttons, and less outputs, and pretty much all else the same, but time will tell.
Although, when I bought my first new Drumit Five module I paid about $400 more than I would be paying today. So sometimes with the good discounts available on the present stock, the new modules may not be that much cheaper than the old, at least at first.

Hi everyone, my name is Teddy and just ordered the drummit 5 from USA... I live in Panama so the kit should be here in the next 2 weeks and can´t wait to try them out.
I have been drumming (acustic) for nearly 15 years, but new life constraints (wife, apartment, etc) have limited my practicing abilities and I was always unimpressed with e-drum sounds until last month that I heard this set (on youtube, there are none set-up here in Panama for me to test). So I took the plunge.

Anyways, my 2 questions are:
1- Since I bought the US version it comes with rubber pads, after reading a bit seems the 682´s are a good choice for replacing the rubber pads.... where can I get a hold of them in the US market? Can´t buy from their web page with my Panamanian credit card.

2- Once I try the kit out I will know if I will require the bass drum attachment and Hi-hat mods that everyone talks about. What is the recommended hardware for Jmans mod? What is the simplest mod for bass reinforcement? where do I get the accesories for it?

Thanks and nice to meet all of you,
Teddy

Hi man!

1. I think 682drums delivers worldwide.

2. Most hihat pedals will do as long as you can slip little JMans box under the pedal. Take one with adjustable spring-tension.

Hi man!

1. I think 682drums delivers worldwide.

2. Most hihat pedals will do as long as you can slip little JMans box under the pedal. Take one with adjustable spring-tension.

3. Bass reinforcement is not needed on MkII. If your bass is wobbly and you need a solution I can show you my extra bar with fixer.

Thanks a lot for the answer Murgen!!!
I tought JMANS mod did not work with 2box hihat pad, I have the pedal I use for my acoustic set.

The Stealth 2Box HH stand conversion kit is for those using "other" brand Ecymbal for the 2Box Hi Hat. Since you are buying the full 2Box kit you will be getting the 2Box Hi Hat and obviously you can use that as is. J

Hello everyone! I'm John and I've been playing various types of e-drums starting with Dauz Pads/Midi-kiti/Ensoniq EPS-16+ proceeding through my beloved DDrum4SE and then a brief foray to the dark side with some Hart Dynamics and a TD-30.

I've just purchased my 2box a couple weeks ago and getting a feel for it. I bought the american model and immediately replaced the heads with mesh and i love those. Still not really loving the cymbals yet, but I'm hoping I can do some tweaks to make them more playable. Any advice on cymbals would be greatly appreciated. And I'm looking forward to being a member of this community.

Here is one thread from a while back if you are looking to use the Ride and the Crashes as 3 zone: http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php/topic,1855.msg16585.html#msg16585
I think it is best to tweak it so the Bell requires more than just a tip type shot ..... because if you setup the cymbal that way you are more apt to trigger inadvertent bell sounds on the bow/edge. Now, if you don't care about bell sounds on your crash cymbals just set them to CYEdg type and you will get bow and edge sounds with no worries.
I obviously use my own cymbals, but they work in a similar method to how the 2Box cymbals work and after a very short time transitioning from Roland CY with Roland TD-20X style, I am quite satisfied with the way 2Box style work .... just a short "getting used to it" period .... same with Hi Hat. J

Welcome.
That depends on what kit/equipment your triggers are, and your individual setup, however, the first thing you might want to do (after backing up) is to change the save function from no to yes, otherwise you wont be able to save any changes.

Welcome to the forum. Just be sure to assign cymbals and HH sounds as needed. Or substitute the Endre drums for the drums of one of your existing kits. The Endre kits don't have the cymbals yet, just drums.

Hello all, newbie from Scotland here. Just ordered 2box module online this morning hooray! I have an old Roland TD-10 set up with the following pads: Kd120; 2 x Pd120; Pd9; Pd100; Pd85; Cy5 and 3 x Cy8.

I've read a few bits already regards using Roland pads and know there will be issues with some of the triggering but not expecting to be able to get rid of the TD-10 module on its own easily, so expect I'll use both. Will get my search hat on and find all the good info I need from the forum.

Welcome to the forum Sean. The pads you list should play fine with the 2Box with the latest OS. There are more trigger parameter choices in the new OS which makes it more friendly for compatibility IMO. From your list your crashes can be setup simply using CyEdg trigger type. The Ride is the one thing that is not covered well with your existing pads, at least for consistent Bow/Bell/Edge response. And one of the CY-5 or CY-8 could be used for Hi Hat with this: http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php/topic,1890.0.html
Again, welcome to the forum, J

Hello 2boxers.

I'm Bas from Belgium.
I've been reading for some time here,but never registered until now.

Bought my 2box in may this year,because I have no more space to put my acoustic kit.
loved the fact about the sampling part so pulled the "trigger" on the 2box.

Finally completed my drum/music room (aka home of the washing machine...) so unfolded the gibraltar,slapped the pads on,added some gen16's and bam...I'm happy.

the 2box is just amazing.
possibilities are endless.
even the sampling works quite easy.

so that's why i finally registered.
to say thanks to you for having this much info on here.

and hopefully there will be more people that will see the possibilities of the 2box.

kind regards,
Bas

Hello!!!

Glad I found this place.

I'm from Sweden and I play metal and trying to keep the chops up to date. :rock:
I used to have a Roland budget kit just to practice on when no access to my aucustic kit.
Today I don't have time to rehearse with a band so I focus only on Digital Drums.
So I got my used MKII about 3months ago and I'm very very pleased with the feel and sound. 8)
I added 2 cymbals (Roland) as well so I got 2 crashes and 1 china. :)

My plan is to either rebuild the bassdrum to a MKII(I got the MKI) or buy the MKII.
It's really loud and therefore I have to stop practising too early, and that's one of the the point having a digital drum kit, too practice without disturbing.

I think 2box has good enough quality sound to be used in a studio situation.
I have some projects and we're planning to record at home.
Only the mixing will be done in a studio so we'll see how it will turn out.

Cheers !!!
Title: (Future) Drumit enthusiast from the Netherlands
Post by: tostigroover on August 07, 2016, 02:21:44 PM
Hello everyone,

Let me get my biggest confession out of the way: I do not own a Drumit 5 kit. I hope to rectify this mistake in the future.

Years ago I owned a Yamaha DTX v2.0 but I sold it because I needed to travel a lot for my work and studies. Now that I am settled down in my home country of the Netherlands, I hope to acquire some kits again. While I did pick up a quality acoustic kit, I think my neighbours will only continue to like me if I play on an electronic kit at home.

After reviewing the information available online, I have set my sights on the Drumit 5 Mk. II for an electronic kit. What sold me was the fact that it's an open system: adding my own sounds to the library sounds like a dream come true. Additionally, I think I prefer mesh heads over Yamaha's rubber pads but to be fair, I hear they have improved those. Still, the open module won me over.

So while I do not own a Drumit 5 Mk. II kit (edit: not module), I hope to find one in the future. When I saw these forums also had a marketplace, I figured I'd read up and keep an eye on offers simultaneously. Two birds with one drum stroke.

Cheers,
Tosti.

Welcome.

BTW - there isn't to my knowledge a Drumit 5 Mk. II module. There is a Drumit 5 Mk. II kit, where the rack was improved, but if you buy just the module, it's a Drumit 5 module, version 1. The firmware has been improved though, which you can get on 2box's download page, if you happen to pick up a used module with the older firmware on it.

Since I don't own anything related to electronic drums any more, I predict I will be better off buying an entire Mk. II kit. If I'll try to gather all the parts, I'm way too dependent on the right parts being sold.

Been away for quite a while. It does not mean I'm not playing my drums but busy with other stuff. In the past weeks I installed the latest GEN16 software and it looks simpler but also more limited (Zildjian is not working with Julia at the moment). My 2Box is still going strong, no issues what so ever.

Im a Music Producer working as a in house engineer, on an company that produces mostly video, but also has a fully equiped audio recording facility.

They gave me the task of preparing this beautiful Drum it 5 kit for recording, so Im figuring it out as I go....

Im not a drummer but this thing sounds and feels so good, that Im getting really into it.

So, expect a lot of basic questions from me.

I´ve already received some amazing support by the Jman, so I decided its proper for me to come forth as an official user of the forum.

Hi all,

I am a hobby drummer who has owned a couple of Roland kits in the past. I had a TD-8 module trigger by a Pearl Rythm Traveller that was converted using Nerf darts and film cannisters. Worked surprising well considering it almost 100% toys. :)

I now play a converted Mapex kit with state stealthed Zildjian LV cymbals and a 32GB modded 2box.

This setup plays and feels great but has much more of a learning curve than the Rolands so I am sure I will have a lot of questions for y'all.

Hi Drumpig,
Welcome to the family. Nice set up you have there. Don't be nervous about doing the wrong thing, anything can be reset if it goes all array. I am interested to know how you get on with the Intrigs.

Well I've been playing and gigging with a Roland TD-12 from 2008, Td6 & 3 before that, converted A to E kit, but as the years have gone by and listening to the new Roland offerings I came to the conclusion that they all sound the bloody same, all they've done is add for FX ,EQ and other little bits of electronic tech sounds all of which I turn off to gig with so its just a clean sound at the board. Then came 2box, read all the reviews and raves but could never find one to demo so forgot about it really, then came the ALESIS strike kit, searched everywhere for a demo kit to try , nowhere had one set up but then I found one store 50 miles away with a demo kit and upgraded firmware, so off I go with cash in pocket to try and hopefully buy, WHAT A WASTE OF TIME, 15 seconds to change kits,the worst rubber cymbals I've ever hit, hi-hat like playing a brick , (sorry for slagging the brick, they are usfull ) pads won't last 2 mins with all those flimsy tower cones, needless to say I drove home empty, it's at this point I remembered the 2,box, so back on the internet to search, I found an ex Demo kit with warranty for £1300 so took the plunge and bought it, One week down the line and after clearing all the not so usfull song an loop files off the SD card for more room I now have an absolutely great sounding drum kit, even works with my A to E kit, cymbal setup needed a bit of getting right but the sounds in the module make Roland sounds toy like, I'm now in the process of selling most of my Roland gear hopefully  never to return, WHY OH WHY DIDNT I DO THIS YEARS AGO. sorry for long winded introduction but had to get it off my chest.

I am playing drums more than 20 yrs now and was initially reluctant to buy an electronic kit knowing how quickly they loose their value when compared to say a good cymbal. 2box DrumitFive is my first electronic kit and I feel with it I've hit a bullseye and even when there inevitable come its rival from other e-drum maker, I feel confident it will still hold its value with realistic sounds being on par with an acoustic set.

I've have access also to Yamaha and Roland kits but since buying 2box, I occasionally use only their pads and rack (when a small footprint is needed) with DrumitFive module and cymbals.

So, yes Mr. Deve Loper your module is still strong and sound  :rock:

I always wondered why the impact of 2Box has been on the low side. Yes, more then 5.000 units have been made and sold but somehow 2Box is overlooked by the mainstream media. I think it has to do with the budgets for marketing and the fact that the target group is advanced and looking for real sounds in the module instead of out of a laptop with VST.

Another thing is that I like to stick to what I have got and I know drummers who like to spent. (GAS)
Title: Re: welcome to the forum (stop by and say hello!)
Post by: Coda on August 22, 2017, 09:14:00 AM
That's it exactly. When I was looking to upgrade from Roland, I did consider a laptop with VST and a midi module. Probably would have cost about the same as the D5. But, I needed low latency, reliability, and to cart around as little equipment as possible. For me the 2box solution is THE solution.
One thing makes me wonder about the relatively small amount of D5s sold... (even considering that the edrum market is not massive to start with), it is very possible with smaller companies such as 2box to get completely overwhelmed by unexpected huge success and be totally destroyed by it. It would not be the first time.

Hi There, have a 3/4 year  old kit and recently the head unit packed up, (dim display no functions and smell of burning)......, got inside the unit an found one of the orange caps burnt and short circuit now these normally go for a reason so rather than replace the cap and have the same thing happen...Does any body have a circuit diagram of the rectification stage as I suspect that's where the problem lies.

Hi there,
I'm new here, because from a few days I've got in my hands some DrumIt Five module (#05193) - and have little problems ;).
I use also crappy Millenium MPS-600 and Alesis Strike.

Hello Everyone, I joined a long time ago and meant to get a Drumit 5 module, had some medical issues keeping me away from building and playing much at all. I am still limited physically but after seeing the Drumit 3 I knew I had to purchase one or two.

I have to build everything while sitting so it takes a lot of time but so worth it.

One of the reasons I chose the DI3, the ability to sample my own custom drums and being able to play every snare drum I have and build with different heads. This is a tedious process and will take time but I will make some for free and make them available to 2Box and Alesis users as they become available.

A few weeks ago I ordered one from Erik at EdrumCenter.com and began building a special kit to use with the new modules. I will post pics in the DIY section when done when I have the module and tune it up.  :drum2:

Thank you for all the information I learned here.

Hello Fellows,
I´m a new member in the 2box user community, but I was lurking around here for a Long time.
Since March I am a happy owner of a drumit three module and use it with a self made a2e coversion with R-Drum and Intrigg Triggers. I use a VH-11 on my set and it works flawless. I also use a Yammy 15" Ride also flawless on all 3 zones and some cheap millenium Crash ecymbals that are surprising responsive.

I´m a beginner on drums but I play guitar and bass for many years and sing in a rock coverband  for more than 5 years now.

I really have to say I was interested in drums for a Long time and I always wanted a 2box drumit 5. But the whole set was way to expensive for me in 2011 .

With the universal Trigger Feature I couldn´t stop myself buying this new Instrument :rock:

Cheers,

Anus

hello everyone!

i am a new 2box edrum user(and edrum user in general), and a beginner with everything to learn from your discussions.

actually i use the build in presets directfrom the module, and for now, i'm pretty impressed.

happy drumming!

Hi all,

I'm what you would call a prospective user I guess. I'm a Roland kit owner looking to switch out my old td6 module for a Drumit5. From all the reviews I've read this is the best choice for me as it combines great sounds with the ability to tinker with stuff (I like to tinker)  8)

you should maybe buy a drumit 3 ... so everything from your old roland kit will work ... Drumit5 isnt compatible with the roland hihat pedal

Would be nice, but I can't stretch to a drumit3 right now. Was hoping to find a Drumit5 with hihat mod box for less money which would do the same job?

Yeah, it would. You'd still not have 3zone cymbals, but maybe that's not a biggy for you. You could have Edge and Bow on crashes and Bell/Bow on rides, along with the Zummann box that's what a mate of mine done and he's pretty happy with it.

Hello,

Here I am at last.
I bought a drumit5 (serial number 06170) in december 2016 after a lot of reading on the internet and on this forum. I took a leap of faith, as I couldn't play on and listen to a 2box before buying. To me it's the better e-drum on the market and I certainly don't regret my purchase.
Before I had a roland TD3 and I still have my TD9, which I use when rehearsing with the band. I use my 2box at home as I don't want to get in trouble with the neighbours.
i like the real sounds in the brain and the feel of the drumpads.
Today I installed 2 Endre-eNerd drums on my module. I had to overcome some problems along the way, but thanks to the info on this forum I got everything working the way I wanted.

grtz
Jo
