An update. I never got the triggering to work correctly with the ddrum2 module and chrome triggers. So I wound up moving my ddrum4 module over to my acoustic kit to use with the triggers.

After a bit of tweaking, it works perfectly. I've been using the ddrum chrome triggers and the ddrum4 module in live shows to layer with my acoustic kit. You have to make sure the sensitivity is set correctly to prevent double triggers, but all in all works very well.

I'm now probably in line for an upgrade to either a 2box drumit 5 or maybe wait for the new drumit 3 or at this point maybe wait to see if they come out with a drumit 6. All of these sound like they would be an incredible upgrade to my kit.

I have not. I never heard of 2box until today! From what I read it's basically a ddrum5! Which has to be awesome. Sounds like you got a good work out, happy drummin'

The albums "Shadows of Doubt" and "The Unforgotten" both used a ddrum 2 kit. The first album, Serve and Protect is a semi-live album, we played live in a studio over two days and recorded way back in 1982. That album is all acoustic drums.

After a bit of a gap in music, we are back working on our 4th album. The single No Suffering was recorded live in a practice facility in NYC and will be on the new album, scheduled release is some time in the winter/spring of 2016. Stay connected to the facebook and/or bandcamp pages for details.

All our songs are also available on all the other music services, itunes, apple music, spotify, amazon, etc. etc.

That's what I read as well. Gives me confidence in the 2box stuff! Nothing I've ever played has been the equal of the ddrum in terms of dynamics and feeling like a real kit.

Long live 2box if they are building on the technology from the original clavia ddrum!

Wow.. Found this site by accident. I have an original ddrum2 kit I purchased somewhere around 1986 or so. I later purchased a ddrum4 module and some cast pads as well.

I still play the ddrum4 kit with the cast pads.

I recently purchased some ddrum chrome elite triggers for my acoustic kit (1982 Ludwig kit I also purchased new).. My intent is to use the ddrum2 module with the triggers to layer sounds and also to record midi.

For recording I use cakewalk sonar with Addictive Drums 2. The ddrum2 module will be excellent for midi triggering the AD2 sounds.

In looking for an online manual for my ddrum2 module, I came across this site. I have the printed manual in a file cabinet some where but easier to find one online!

At any rate, I had no idea about 2box or the history, but this is a possibility when/if I finally retire my ddrum4 kit. I am not a big fan of the r**d kits or the y**a kits!! Haha. The ddrum4 kit at more than 20 years old is as good!

So, this is a great find!! Happy drumming and glad there are ddrum guys still around and even more happy there is someone updating the technology. It was always a shame to me that the company that bought ddrum basically abandoned the edrum tech.
