I have extracted the original 2Box hi hat controller from my hi hat cymbal and mounted it under my footpedal with a magnet. So far so good. But...

After using this for a while I noticed that when the hi hat is in closed position and I play the bow, I get the bow sound. When in closed position playing the bow, then the edge and back to the bow, the controller/module plays the edge sound instead of the bow sound. Only lifting my foot a little and closing it again makes the controller/module play the bow sound again.

Strange enough this only happens in the fully closed position. I can not reproduce this behavior in any other position...

Does anyone have an idea what is going on here?

e-drum DIY / modifications / Hi Hat test dsnd transitions not lineair
« on: February 24, 2019, 09:27:20 PM »
I extracted the original pcb from the original hi hat and mounted it below my footboard and combined it with my low volume hi hat.
While playing I find that the hi hat sensitivity and transitions doesn’t feel linear.
I used 2 different magnets, a strong one and a normal one and different distances from the magnet to the pcb.
I downloaded the hi hat test dand from an old topic http://www.2box-forum.com/index.php?topic=2000.0 and noticed that the different transitions are not equally divided over the total range from open to close.
Going from close to open does trigger zones 10 to 5 quite fast and the remaining transitions are spread over the rest of the range.
For example; zones 10 to 5 are triggered within about 5-6mm of opening the cymbal, while the others 5 (6 to 1)  are spread over  about 20mm.

As I said I did try different magnets and different heights and different open/close widths.

Is this normal behavior or has it to do with my diy setup not being correct?

Hi all,

I want to make some recordings of the pieces I play including video but I don't want to do the editing part afterwards and syncing the video with the audio. So I tried the following setup to record audio and video at once, but I think the audio quality can be improved, but not sure how?

My setup:
2Box -> mono jack from line-out 1 to Steinberg Ur22 mk11 external audiocard -> USB cable to MAcbook pro

On my MAcbook Pro I use Quicktime record audio and video at once but I am not satisfied with the audio quality. The recorded drums seem to sound not as real as they do in my earplugs.

I am open to suggestions or other ways to record but I prefer to record audio and video at the same time. I thought of midi-recording but that would force me to do the syncing etc. afterwards.

Anyone has good ideas or own experiences with recording the audio from 2Box?

Hi there,

I did a conversion from Acoustic to Electric kit with a 2Box module and 2Box Trigit external triggers on Remo Silent Stroke mesh heads.

I wonder if the trigger types and mesh heads used, make a difference in the sound (like quality, velocity, depth etc.) that is triggered in the 2Box?
