so far, my favourite kit is 44 - 2box live kit my #1. it has a great "live" feel to me when playing, the drums don't feel "squashed" or over damped.

I like the first 5 kits, 30, 69, 94, 95, 96.

The percussion sounds & the backing tracks on other kits are great, what I am working on figuring out is how I can them move things around to have some of these sounds accessible when playing one of the kits I like, & still playing round with the physical setup too.
The sizing of the drums is great to get a good setup, where I'm never overreaching to play, so I'm being a little more experimental than I would/could have with my acoustic kit on drum placement.

I've added an extra tom & cymbal, but now am wondering about how I could also add an extra kick.
I have a double pedal, but the double kick setups I like, have 2 drums with different tuning.
Does anyone know if the kick input is a dual channel one?
If so, if I put a cable splitter in. would I be able to plug 2 kicks into that input?

I don't consider myself a great drummer (far from it) but I love a big kit sound & feel, & have been (slowly) working on my limb independence & this includes working on both feet & hands, but is a real challenge :)
I'm massively strongly Left-handed & my kit is set out as a leftie, but I'm challenging myself to be able to play a kit either way.

Hi dragonz,

I've mapped the sounds against kits they're included, sharing through Google Docs:

Thanks for this,
I had started on one myself, but this saves me a bunch of time, & is better than I was doing anyway!
Yes, the endre e-nerd kits need space, & yes I think the 32gb expansion is going to be a must-do for me too.
Really enjoying some of the standard kits, & definitely happily ditching a few that I just go meh about, but looking forwards to being able to play some of the great kits that have been recorded.

j u s t  n e e d  m o r e  t i m e ................ :)

having played round with all the kits the unit comes with, I figured I had worked out what I liked & what I didn't, so looked at the limited space in the module storage & figured I would just delete what I didn't like, & then I could load up the endre-enerd kits I had downloaded (I blame him for me buying this kit :) )
Then the problems started.
I hadn't properly looked at how the kits were arranged in the file system, & so instead of being able to just delete a kit or 2 to make space, I have now figured I need to identify all the sounds I do & don't like, & delete the ones I don't, so I can them make space for the ones I do.
Either that, or I'm going to have to risk my warranty & buy the Jman memory extender setup.

So, first question:
has any one actually mapped out what & where all the sounds are, or is there an easy way to do this that I'm not understanding yet?
I've started a spreadsheet to try & map this all out in a logical way, & then try to identify the sounds I can delete.

has anyone actually had significant warranty issues with their modules?
as a new owner, & new to edrums, I'm a little nervous about getting myself all set how I want, & then having an issue, but being turned away because I have made an unauthorised mod to my kit.

your videos were what finally sold me totally on the 2box kit :)
I am in the process of downloading all your kits as we speak.
Having just bought the kit, I'm a little short of fun tickets right now, but I'm sure I can send enough for a couple of cold ones your way at least.

Thanks for all your work on these kits.
I am saving a few kits of my own from the standard sounds, but the kits you have made are probably better than I'm going to end up with anyway :)



Figure I should put my mark here too.
Gudday to all from New Zealand :)

Spent a few days just playing with the kits there, & finding the different sounds, rim triggers, etc.
Still playing round with pad placement, the lack of bulk over a conventional kit makes the setup far more flexible to get things where you want them.

Will start making a couple of my own kits this weekend, using the pre-programmed sounds for now, just setting the kits up with the sounds I'm liking the combination of, as a means to familiarise myself better with how it all works.

I've got myself a 3rd cymbal & 4th tom to give myself a bigger kit "feel" & figure I will use the rim triggers on a couple of toms to give start some of the internal rhythms to play with too.

After years of old 2nd hand drums, fix-ups, & gear that isn't quite what I wanted, its wonderful to have something nice, new, & always tuned to play on :)

Not sure where best to put this, so I'm putting it here :)

Just got my kit set up, & starting to learn my way around it.
There is plenty of good information here I can see, so I hope I don't bore anyone with stupid questions along the way.
