e-drum DIY / modifications / Virtual Clutch with foot switch...
« on: May 12, 2019, 07:54:28 AM »
Hi!

I recently got a proposal from a customer to modify my hi-hat conversion module for FD-8/VH-11 with Virtual Clutch for 2box DrumIt Five. The "mod" was instead of using a plain switch for controlling the virtual clutch, now got replaced by a foot switch. (And thinking of it, I should have done this years ago on my design!)

I have previously built some guitar effect boxes to friends...so I had the right foot switch in stock. :-)

The virtual clutch function works like this - you can be pre-define the hi-hat pedal position in advance (adjustable from closed to half open hi-hat). When pressing the foot switch it will go from normal hi-hat pedal use to the pre-defined pedal value. Extremely useful if using double kicks etc...

Note: Even if running in virtual clutch mode...and pressing the hi-hat pedal, it will move from the pre-defined pedal position to closed - if any gap defined.

Now after the mod - the footswitch on the conversion module controls this function rapidly from your feet….

I like to create stuff...(no surprises to many of you who have bought my conversion modules)

This time I created my own hi-hat pedal control. (!)

Have a look:

It is IR based, no external PSU, 3D printed design and adopted to 2box native hi-hat support.

As said, I was just fiddling around for fun..and I am not sure it will be a product for the market.
But it was fun!

I recently made an instruction video for 2box on how to configure, optimize and tweak their new DrumIt Three module with Roland's hi-hat VH-12 and VH-13.

There is also a written QuickStart guide available to read more about how to deal with hi-hats on DrumIt Three:

(I have also included my best settings for Roland 3 zone rides like CY-12CR, CY-13R and CY-15R in this guide for DrumIt Three.

General chit-chat / Just for fun...
« on: December 22, 2018, 09:02:28 AM »
Hi!

Me and Allan at digitalDrummer had recently a chat about how a pair of real e-sticks would be designed and have for kind of specs. Allan have tested many e-sticks from several manufacturers in dD through the years.

We decided that a pair with the stick size 7A and which was equipped with a nylon tip would probably be our perfect choice when selecting models.

Of course, I’ve needed to try is in reality, so I contacted CustomStix.com and got these manufactured and branded with my and digitalDrummer logos...:-)

all!

Just wanted to hint about the latest edition of digitalDrummer Magazine (August 2018)

As usual you will find stories and reviews like the Roland TD-17 kit, Medeli's new YoDrum and the story continues about the mesh head comparisons with four more from Prism.

But the real reason to read it (in my opinion) are that you will find some interviews done by Allan Leibowitz(Editor) and his visit to STOCKHOLM / Sweden in June where we met 2box (at the owner Bengt’s home) and XLN Audio (creators of Addictive Drums) at their brand new office.

All that in the latest edition which is still free.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / ATV aD-H14 & DrumIt Three (and Five...)
« on: July 03, 2018, 10:39:38 PM »
Hi!

I have for some time been working to get the fantastic active optical hi-hat from ATV to work with 2box DrumIt Five and Three. (On a customer request - not the cheapest the solution...but if you want the best hh...)

For the DrumIt Five, a conversion module is always required but for DrumIt Three, which natively supports Roland hi-hats (ATV aD_H14 emulates VH-13) a conversion module is also required.

The reason for this is the active ATV hi-hat controller sends out a voltage range instead of a resistance range to handle the open/closed states. This fools the "Three" module completely, but with the Zourman Drums Conversion module for ATV hh - this can be solved.

The DDrum Legacy / Zourman Drums Hi-hat Conversion Module for ddrum 4 SE
« on: January 28, 2018, 08:46:43 PM »
Hi best friends!

About 2 months ago I got a my hands on an old ddrum 4 SE module. (Got it from a friend!)

As a spinoff when I got the ddrum 4SE module and also from a couple of requests from customers asking - Can't you develop a hi-hat conversion for Roland hi-hats and the ddrum 4se?

So well...I thought, no problem I can do this and I started the project - however - it was not so easy as I thought and it took me like 100 hours to complete. I am not 100% ready yet but I think it is working ok already - some fine tuning which still remains.

Hi all!

What do you think about this?

https://youtu.be/5cBdUjTaR2s

I did finally finish a conversion module for using Roland CY-13R and CY-15R rides together with the 2box DrumIt Five module.

Have a nice weekend!

e-drum DIY / modifications / 2boxers: What do You think about this?
« on: October 08, 2017, 01:03:10 PM »
Hi all!

I have for some time been fiddling around to find a solution which makes my Roland CY-15R (3 Zones) to work with my 2box module. (I thought this would be nice to solve the last of the 2box Drumit five secrets)

The goal has been to only use passive electronics in my solution. The trick to make it possible is to damp the bow piezo and leave the bell signal untouched and through this create a higher signal for the bell. A Roland cymbal has the piezo on the bow...and a 2box cymbal have the piezo in the bell.

So a bell hit on 2box cymbal will because of the higher amplitude create a bell sound. On Roland Cy-15R it is the opposite. So a bell hit will never be higher than a bow hit...so there have been some challenges to deal with...

I have still some other challenges (especially with the choke) but I thought about posting a video clip what I have been achiving so far for the 2box forums to see what you all think!

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Make your 2box module ready for the road!
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:31:02 PM »



I needed to protect my 2box module in a better way when on the road…so just for fun I bought a small red case at Bauhaus and then used a foam cutter to make room for the 2box module and also a Zourman hi-hat conversion module for Roland VH-11. I think the result got quite nice. I will add space for the PSU and the 2box holder also)
