DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: bass drum patches on mesh heads
« on: June 12, 2016, 11:08:23 AM »
Had the Drum Tech one in my diamond drum convo only lasted 2 gigs and started to peel off, have tried home made ones haven't found anything that remains stuck for long enough yet.
Have a 22" kick was considering actually going back to a proper drum head only for the kick.

Setup guides and tips / Re: Problems playing live after 4 Gigs.

Cool,
I went to Dave at Diamond Drums and had a brand new kit of Tama Superstar Custom Maples,
Converted which I also use live with 2 box.
They are sublime.
I use Roland CY 14 x2 for crash a CY 8 for crash/ China 2 box for my ride which works perfectly
And 2 box hats which now dialled in seem to work acceptably. You need to use the metal washer not the felt if using a different brand hi hat stand.
Jman does a hi hat mod which allows use of other branded hi hats.
Also seen a box called 42 Box hi hat converter but it seems more bulky.
I have used the JMan memory expander mod and know we here I would buy further mods when needed.
If I knew how to add pics I would show you.
Hope this helps?

I use a converted Diamond Drums Tama kit so can't put all in one case,
I'm not that strong 👍
The padded floor Tom case works great will check out the options you have mentioned.

I use the same, they work really well and are very comfortable 👍

Cheers for that, it is useful.
We do our own mixing and monitoring.
I think the problem is now solved.
Watch this space tho haha 😳

Thanks Jerry,

I have literally just read it in the manual,
It's obviously why it's distorting.
It is trying to send to exact signals to one place
I think?
Didn't adjust that setting last time as I set my monitor mix fairly low then used
The volume in the 2 box module to lift everything as and when required
Which is why I guess the distortion was minimal then.
I am making progress through the manual
So hopefully I will be rocking and rolling in total clarity in Friday night.
👍👍
Thanks guys.

It's definitely 1+2!
If I switch it to 1+2 the PA speakers start to feedback immediately
As I found out to my horror.

Hi yeah it is 😉
The cable routing is all good,
However another 2 box drummer said using the
Outs 1&2 may cause a problem?
I have out 1 Kick 2 snare 3 toms 4 cymbals
Phones in phones and monitor mix from the front
Of house to line in.
But when I ask for more toms or vocals for example
I am getting a distorted sound back.
I'm sure it is a setting in the module
But I havent figured out what yet?

Setup guides and tips / Live with the 2 Box possible feedback loop?
« on: April 17, 2016, 09:38:38 AM »
Hi guys I took the kit on the road last night after a brief rest, only changes I have made are,I am now using a converted acoustic kit and I have added a 32g expander SD card slot.
I copied the settings from my orig 2 box SD card regarding outputs and set ups etc as per this post:

Unit->Intf - Assign your pads to channels. Press each pad switch in turn and make sure the BUS  is what you want, adjust it with rightmost data entry knob
Unit->Out - Connect the monitor mix from the desk to your aux in and change LINE to Mono unless you are sure you have a stereo mix coming from the desk
Unit->Out - Set PHONS to Sub
Unit->Out - If you receive the drums in the monitor mix from the desk, deselect the drums in the subgroup (left data entry knob) otherwise leave it selected (or you won't hear drums)
Unit->Out - Make sure Out 1.2! is set

Note:
If you don't want to use 5 or 6 ouputs for instrument separation (maybe you only have 2 channels on the desk?) then you can assign all instruments except the kick to bus 1, and everything else to bus 2
Fader settings are irrelevant unless you're using the internal mixer (The headphones or the 1+2 outputs are set to MIX. They should not be in your case)
If you don't see a '!' next to a channel assignment, it means that the volume is controlled by the volume knob. Otherwise (with a '!') the level is output at nominal line level regardless of mixer or volume knob settings. This is what you want in most situations for the best quality sound.

Everything I did worked but I did notice slight distortion when the mixing desk gave me more toms or more vocal for example.

Last night I wasn't getting any sound back from the mixing desk but I was getting a signal.
I turned the line in vol up in the 2 box mixer ( something I didn't have to do before?) but it does say it is set to zero as default   
This worked I started getting everything from the pa mixer to my headphones.
But distorted, i turned the drums in the pa monitor down and used the volume on the 2 box and could crank them right up no problem but from the pa they distorted, as did the vocals and so on.
I didn't think the internal mixer in the module came in to play as I thought the routing options
I was using cancelled It out?
It's obviously an easy fix and probably a simple routing setting that I am missing but as the gear is packed up for the next gig I can't get it out and start messing has anyone came across this before?
Anyone of you more savvy guys have any ideas?
Cheers 👍

Hi thanks for the reply,
I have tried my soft cym case
And also tried my Hardcase erm Hardcase hehe
but the e cymbals have a larger depth which doesn't allow the cymbals to
Rest snugly on top of each other,
I was thinking 15x15" square and 2 foot long
With slots inside to place them in,
Time to design my own me thinks.

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Transporting E Cymbals?
« on: April 15, 2016, 11:57:38 AM »
Hi guys,
Anyone using e cymbals in their live set ups,
Wanna share what they use to transport them?
I've looked for purpose built soft cases etc
Nothing really out there, I am currently using
A 16" floor Tom soft padded bag which works pretty
Well but would prefer something a bit more purpose
Built. Perhaps there is a market for something like this?

Some great chat guys and tips 👍
I finally settled on Sure 425's they are leaps and
Bounds more suitable than the 215's
No fitting issues loads of different plugs and bungs to attach depending
On the size of your lug holes and the sound is
Incredible I have keys guitars and a little vocal
Dribbled in as a guide then beautiful sounding
Drums crystal clear and because the noise cancelling works so
Well I can lower the volume and protect my
Lug holes.
Thanks for the tips n tricks guys :)

Setup guides and tips / Re: Save on! No Save
« on: April 14, 2016, 06:19:45 PM »
Hi J, I think that's what I've done wrong just pressing save 1 time same as when in unit.
That seems to have solved it,
Thanks again for making my set up sound amazing thanks to you and your tech!
Highly recommended guys!

Setup guides and tips / Save on! No Save
« on: April 14, 2016, 05:15:04 PM »
Hi Guys,

I'm sure this has been covered but after having a look through the manual
I have Jman,s 32g extender fitted which I have to say is an outstanding
Piece of kit and I strongly recommend it to all!
My problem is I have edited kits on the Mac,
Renamed them first, then saved the kits and all works perfectly when I
Put the SD back in the module and sounds fantastic.
But... When I make small tweaks when hooked up to the kit, with SAVE enabled
The sensitivity tweaks and odd cymbal volume and the cymbal I have added
By adding a splitter to the 4th Tom rim and changing the +++ setting for it to -+-
To make it crash instead of the bell sound all works great I save after each change
But the next day when I fire up the module the settings are back to how they were.
I need to find out what I am missing here as I have to break all the gear down to
go out live for a few months so I'm flapping a bit,
If anyone can please help with this I would be very greatful.
I have read the manual and can't find a solution to this issue. Just so you guys don't think I'm being
Lazy ....Cheers.
Thanks.
