General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Hiss.....
« on: October 08, 2018, 12:22:56 AM »
I have sampled (the long way around as I don't have a windows machine to do the SDSD app) and it's long winded but works. But I find at the tail end of the various samples I get system hiss, does this happen with Ising the one-click method on SDSD? Just wondering. I came cut it back by shortening the decay, and this kinda cleans it up for live and the sounds I have ripped from EZ and Superior drummer are really really nice, but just that his at the end. Enerds Peavey kit samples also have it so perhaps its just one of them things I have to deal with. I know I could probably apply some plug in to eliminate hiss, I know there's one on Logic (what I use to sample) but was worried it would kill some of the fidelity of the overall sound. In the mix when the band is playing it's not noticeable, so it's a minor thing. But just wanted to ask other users of their experience.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Yamaha PSY115
« on: August 27, 2018, 11:44:24 PM »
Anyone got a Di3 with the Yamaha PSY115? I am getting edge sound on the bell at random hits, sometimes quite loud and as I use the Randy Black ride sample, the edge isn't very nice. I have the right trigger setting (CpSY) and all the gains threshold etc are right. It's less so if I hit with the tip of the stick, but not totally eliminated.

I have just bought a 2nd Drumit3 module so no longer have use for the drumit5. It's got some signs of wear over the many tours I have done with it, but all works fine.

£400

Also have a full set of pads and 3 x 14" cymbals. All cymbals are working but have worn edges.
£50 for each cymbal.
£50 2box hihat controller.
£50 for each 10" pad
£60 for 12"
£75 for 14" kick

Also have the rack and all clamps, cymbal arms, snare stand and kick pedal. All working but have  marks after being gigged extensively for almost 8 years.

Can do a deal for all of it.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Drumit 3 with Yamaha X120SD/TP120SD pad
« on: July 13, 2018, 12:33:19 AM »
Hey,
Has anyone tried the Drumit3 with the XP/TP120SD 3 zone pad? I am thinking to try it out. I would really like to have snare, rimshot and side stick sounds from one pad.
Just wondered what anyone's experience is.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Hihat issue
« on: April 29, 2018, 11:05:16 PM »
Okay so for the second gig in a row, I have had this issue.

Fully closed hihat sound, just half opens a few bars later with no change to foot position. I had the kit set up for two weeks at home and this didn't happen once. Stripped it down for two gigs back to back (Sturday and Sunday) and it happened in every song on both gigs.

I should have re-calibrated in the hall time break, but I didn't do I can't rule that out as non remedy. Also, didn't change cable to the controller so can't rule that out as a remedy. Just wondered if anyone has some insight.

I am using a Goedrum controller with a Jobeky Real Feel hat hat top.

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Xpad Xrim settings
« on: March 17, 2018, 02:31:25 PM »
Jman recent mantioned how the xrim and xpad Settimbs work. I was wondering has anyone successfully achivied separate rim/separation? So I’m essense have a snare sample on the pad and a rimshot sample of that snare on the rim and able to achieve clean separation of rim/head for realistic playing via the module. I have Td15 and it’s got a head/rimshot balance setting for this and you can get it pretty good

Anyone?

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Drumit3 3 zone function
« on: March 08, 2018, 12:02:11 AM »
I am intrigued about the 3 zone function of the drumit3. Like Roland, I assume this is attained via a centre mounted sensor pad, anyone know how well it works?

Hey peoples!
The awesome person that is Endre eNerd has released some custom Dani Gerendas Tama Starclassic voices for the 2box module.
http://endre-enerd.com/index.php/tech-info/sounds

Although he offers them as free downloads he also requests if you like them to make a donation, which I will now.

The original Radio Pro voices are there too but if you scroll down you'll see the new ones. I haven't tried them yet but props have to go Endre for keeping alive the power of the drumit5.

I salute you sir!

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / 14" cymbal repair
« on: June 18, 2017, 10:53:17 PM »
Hello all,
It's gone a bit quiet here hasn't it? Anyway, I repaired a 14" 2box cymbal pad by replacing the one donut shaped piezo around the hole for two 10mm piezo and apart from the hassle of cleaning the cymbals plates, sourcing some neoprene dampening, glueing it back, then the soldering, it was really easy, just a bit time consuming. It triggers fine, like before. But I suspect it's a little "HOT" even with gain at 0db. So was thinking of adding a resistor to the wiring. Does anyone know where I would solder this and what impedance?

Thank you in advance.

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Repair cymbal trigger
« on: May 30, 2017, 12:01:34 PM »
At the gig last night, my newest cymbal trigger pad started playing up. It's the newest one I have too.
The fault can only be described as an intermittent reduction of gain. Hardest hits result in a light trigger response, bell only, edge too but no bow. Then all of a sudden it's fine again for a little bit. Then back to fault. As I understand they're not the easiest to repair but repair I must.
So anyone with experience with this?

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Latency Live!
« on: May 07, 2017, 07:32:16 AM »
I posted something about this before and chatted to someone who'd had a similar issue, but does anyone use the whole kit live (hats, cymbals and drums) and notice latency? Namely on snare or ride (that'w where I notice it myself)
I could never seems to get it to happen to any noticeable effect at home in a quiet environment but live, it's quite a lot. Not to an audience, but as drummers when we feel the stick hitting a pad and the sound in the cans changed by even 5 milliseconds, it sticks out like a jumbo sausage at a Barmitz-vah!
I can only conclude that when there's a lot of ambient noise, most probably in the bass register, the module goes a bit nuts dealing with the constant rumble that must be coming down the piezos. I tend set up next to the bassist, who's go a 6 x 10" cab and even though I am using an electric kit, with NO amplification as I monitor through IEM, he still sets his volume as if he's playing with MOTORHEAD! So with that, the guitarist on the other side of me, follows suit! And that say drummers are the noisy ones!!! It begs the question, "what they hell are they playing to, Samaforo???"
Anyway just thought if anyone else had this also.

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / 2box 12" pad into a TD15 sound muting
« on: May 07, 2017, 07:20:51 AM »
Greetings.
So a few weeks back I bought a TD15 cheap and a Jobeky real feel ecymbal hihat controller. Still cost about £600 all told to experiment on something which had been bugging me, namely some latency happening on the 2box kit when using a full kit (not just triggering drums) and playing certain patterns, namely anything with syncopated ride patterns with pedal hats on 8th notes, that sorta thing.
So I thought, well if the module is struggling to deal with all this, I am one of the few that has had issues so maybe it's just luck I got an iffy module. Anyway I thought I'd try lightening its load with a second module for hats, what's the worst that could happen and I'd have a load more inputs? I also liked the look of the Jobeky hihats, one happened to come up on eBay, also TD15. (Addressed on another post)
But without going into whether this worked or not, one thing that I noticed playing a 2box pad into that Roland Module is that I find sounds MUTE sometimes, only sometimes. I was using the 12" snare pad with mylar head and then with a Remo silent stroke. Random muted sound. It was on the snare input on the Roland module then floor tom, both with same results. I have never heard anyone say about this before.

Anyone have an idea? Is there an aftertouch setting I should be turning off or something?

Setup guides and tips / Double triggering on cymbal bow zone
« on: April 27, 2017, 08:46:21 PM »
Does anyone else find the cymbals double trigger 50% of the time on the bow? Rides and crashes alike. Even if you set mask time to 6 (or whatever the highest setting is) still happens. Its not really bothered me that much especially live as you don't notice is because they're so close together, but it's there and you can see on midi if you record into a DAW.

Or is it just mine? I was playing a mate's kit a few weeks back and even though I wasn't specifically looking for it, I am sure it didn't happen.

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Rack Feet
« on: March 30, 2017, 12:52:22 AM »
I have only gone and lost one of the orange rack feet haven't I? Anyone know where I can get a new one. The usual course would be to contact 2box but apparently support has been suspended (according to a chap in Norway I was chatting to) who contacted them about a failed kick drum pad...

Hope they're okay.

This might be an odd one for you all to help me with. But here's my thoughts.
2box module main pluses for me.
1. Sounds. Unlimited.
2. Small
3. Not expensive.
4. Easy to use.
Cons.
1. poop triggering. But mostly manigable.
2. Crappy hihat
3. Latency when many pads are played.
4. Lack of trigger inputs.

When triggering a live snare with a Mylar head, rim shot (every 2 and 4 beat for me) is inconsistent. You hear flams between head and rim and sometimes what I can only call "spikes" in the output of snare. Like it's triggering the snare and rim twice each at a slightly higher amplitude. Have checked this with other sounds and you can hear a "phasing" of the sample. No amount of adjusting mask time or any other settings prevents this.

So was contemplating getting a Roland brain (td 15 going cheap on eBay) with a vh12, maybe something for the ride too, and plugging that into mix in of 2box module.

That covers hat issue and frees up and input.
Triggering a snare drum via midi (Roland to 2box) with a mesh head with a Roland trigger (or similar) As the Roland td15  does do a decent rim shot. Obviously having no sound on the Roland module as to not get a mash up.

Would that work? Or am I setting myself up for more hassle. I can't try this stuff out unless I buy it all so would like a heads up if I'm off.

Maybe I'd still have latency issues via midi? Is the 2box having issues with plaguing the sound and triggering at the same time or is it just trying to play the sound is what's a problem.

I don't wanna be forking out thousands on a new module set up so trying to have work arounds. I still love the module but I do have gripes with it which I wish they'd fix.
