Yeah you'll be safe with Roland. The Yamaha Pads TP and XP series also work really well!!! Yamaha Cymbals I didn't find as functional. But like the chap above said, most pads will work even if you do have to a little bit of tweaking after finding a trigger type that's close, it's a really versatile module!

It uses the same format of multisample so the editor is the same for both modules. The only thing that it different with regards to the editor between the drumit5 and drumit3 is that the editor can make 3zone sounds that only the drumit3 can utilise with ONLY Yamaha Pads. The TP and XP series to be more specific.

if you find a pad too hot (hitting zero on 0db gain) there's a gain reduction function, can't think what it's called off hand, but it's in triggering settings. When set to on, have a much wider plain to adjust gain to suit hot pads. You might wanna try messing with that.

You cannot trigger any more sounds than the total channels of the drumit3. Unlike some other modules where you have the trigger channel and then some more than can be triggered via midi.
But if you have a drumit3 and say, a SH drumit5 (which can be picked up quite cheap now) you can feed the second module into the aux in of the Drumit3.  That would give you an extra 12 or so channels.

I can confirm, it plays loops. And not only that, VERY well with lots of choices of how it's played. Single shot, start/stop on hit, set velocity, velocity sensitive. In fact, I can't think of another module that does it better!

Ddrum 3 and 4 did this very well, and not just on snare. They also did pressure sense too. Bending/dampening of sounds. It was really cool to mess about with. I don't know how they (2box) don't have a patent themselves as they were the first to incorporate it in to a single pad. I think Simmons did it also with the SDX but that was because the pads were multi-zoned.
Personally, I don't think it's a major thing but quite a few seems to really want this feature.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Re: Resonance head
« on: January 12, 2019, 11:42:58 AM »
Hi there and welcome!
I would keep the resonant head on too. But you might want to put some foam dampening. I'd suggest about a 2 inch thick going from mesh head to resonant head wrapping the inside of the drum. This will help with triggering. You could probably get away with no dampening and one of the AC trigger settings. But if the drummer is going to be using lots of double kicks, a bit of dampening will seriously improved the triggering of fast notes as you could select a lower AC setting meant for toms/snare and not have to adjust mask time (the amount of time the module will allow a second trigger to happen)
Perhaps try it without first, but if you get into some triggering issues (double triggering or faster notes not being tracked after adjustment of AC setting and or mask time) put some dampening in. It might also feel better to play too, depends on the drummer though. We're all different!

Thanks for all the help. I did go ahead and order the card AND extender.  So does this mean that I should load everything onto the card from my PC's SD reader, rather than connecting the DrumIt via USB?

But I'm pretty excited for the external USB option via extender, because it will allow me to save specific kits for specific live projects on specific SD cards (seeing as they are only $6-$8 each).

Looking forward to getting my home eDrum Kit assembled and my live triggered kit set up. This is a new world for me. Very exciting!

yes, take the card out of extender and put into your pc sd card reader to do any changes. its faster and doesn't require the module turned on in usb mode.

Just to iterate this topic. If you put 32gig into the module without the ribbon extender, DO NOT use USB mode ever. Which means you'll have to load all the sounds onto the card first. But after any changes you'll make will need you to take the card out (dismantling the unit to do so in order to obtain the card) to do on your computer.
Seriously, the card extender is the best way to go. It's little money and will make things a lot simpler when you want to file exchanges. Talk to Jman here, he'll hook you up!

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: Trigger settings for trigit
« on: January 06, 2019, 01:55:51 AM »
I had double triggering with a silent stroke and a drumit5. So I raised the mask time, no double triggering.


It didn't catch flams and really fast press rolls. The simplest solution? get some foam to line the inside of the shell, about 1.5 inches thick all the way around. I did, lowered the mask time and threshold and it was great after!!

I had this with 2 x PCY13 (one of which was brand new) and a second hand PCY15. Do you find the edge crashes almost granteed if you straight between bow and edge, you know, like just where it becomes bell?

After talking with Bengt in 2box, I gave up on it in the end and went with a Jobeky ride cymbal as he said testing didn't show this.

What will you be plugging into it, by which I mean pads. I haven't heard anting about dirty triggering. Most issues are solved with setting adjustments!

Wow... that's a GREAT set up. I have said it before, but I'll say it again.

The sounds you chose are decent enough, great live kit for a punchy dry sound, but there's a lot of much better ones out there if you go looking ;)

I'd like to see more from you doing this kinda thing.

I had a pair of 5a Carbostick (totally carbon fibre) while in residency in Abu Dhabi between 2004 and 2007. I was playing on an Ddrum4 complete kit. They cost about £15 I don't think I broke a single one! Well, until I started playing back on acoustic drums, then they broke! Hihats and rimshots on bare rims eventually got them. That was some value. Looks like they're not made anymore otherwise I''d still be using them.
