General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Re: Limit hihat open sound

You could probably do something with calibration - set the clutch 'twice as high' and calibrate, then move the clutch back down and see how that performs?

Alternatively, do something with the DSOUND editor to create new sounds using only closed to half open sounds.....

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: Alternative trigger pad for hihat
« on: April 12, 2019, 05:02:16 PM »
Have a look at this - I did it with two hihat pads, but you could change the second hihat for a mesh head or any other alternative (quiet) pad,3874.msg28164.html#msg28164

Mask, on the Unit Spec screen.
Page 51 in the manual.

There is a new function in the latest OS that allows program change from a pad
N Kit Selects the following KIT (NEXT KIT).
P Kit Selects the preceding KIT (PREVIOUS KIT).

Bottom of page 41 in the D3 manual says how to save unit settings:

If you have made changes in the UNIT mode, this will be indicated by a „?“ next to SAVE.

To make these changes permanent, press the left DATA button. The „?“ disappears and
the changes are saved. Please be aware that for this the SAVE mode on the page PREF
has to be switched on (see page 59). Should the "?" still be there after you pressed the
DATA button, the SAVE mode is disabled.

Yep, the link the original poster quoted wouldn't work; it needs to be stereo to 2 x mono
I use these:

Highly recommended seller, I get all my cables from them.

Is there any documentation with AD that confirms how many sample levels are recorded in there? I don't have SSDE yet, but have experimented exporting samples manually. I'm never sure how many to use. There's no point exporting 128 velocity samples if the original SD samples were based on 32?

Some of the benefits of the D3 have already appeared in the D5 OS releases, but those that relate to the hardware inputs are not going to translate to the original D5  :-[

Yes, and it also mentions some new sounds - hope they make those available to the older modules as well...….

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Re: RIM SHOT!
« on: January 28, 2019, 09:10:50 PM »
The 2Box site has both the D5 and D3 card sounds available to download.
Looking at my copies, there are 3 rim shots on each, and they appear to be different.....

So will I  :D

I use Sennheisers for drumming (can't remember the model offhand) - but closed backs do tend to increase the bass a bit.
I've also got some open backed AKGs that I use for mixing (K702s) - which in theory are more 'accurate' for drumming - but I hear too much of the acoustic noise from the pads - so I prefer the closed backed for playing...…..

DrumIt 3 and DrumIt 5 Software - PC / Mac / Cakewalk Drum Map
« on: January 20, 2019, 08:08:41 AM »
If anyone else is using (or thinking of using) Cakewalk (and why not - it's free!) I've built a drum map for the 2Box.!AvEC4KT8mxCMqfAYa0ziTV0KwCc6Qw
Based on the default midi settings and tested on Cakewalk and Drumit5
Should work on Sonar and/or Drumit3 (but untested).
Hope this is useful!

Can you get quiet hits by tapping really gently or using your fingers?
If so then the module and pad are working OK, you just need to find the right settings. If the gains are set as low as you can, why not try some of the other trigger types to see if they give a better response?
Also, look at the velocity response curves, they can make a big difference to how the pads respond.
Moving forward, learning to play softer would probably be better, but I don't want to take all the fun out of bashing a drum kit - we all secretly enjoy that 😁
