General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Roland TD25 - Discouraged / Need Help
« on: March 21, 2019, 02:00:59 PM »
Hi there,

I purchased a Drumit 3 module to use with my Roland TD25 hardware back in the fall. I can hold my own with a lot of technical stuff, but I have found the learning curve to be quite high. I primarily use my kit for gigging.

I have got the basics down, but I think I need help with getting the best out of it. I spent a LOT of time trying to figure things out and I got to a certain level and then just sort of stalled in discouragement.

Now I feel like I have to give it another solid try before moving on. Here are my issues:

1. Although it's not a 2box problem, I have been discouraged to find that sounds on my computer (VSTs) are VERY different when using the SDSE tool from Lustark. The end result (playing the sounds on the module) don't seem to resemble the original sound at all.

2. It sounds like there has been lots of threads on the TD25 and the Drumit module, but I was wondering if anybody could speak up and say "I am using the TD25 and here are the parameters I use..."
I know that this is somewhat subjective because of different play styles etc., but I feel like I need to go back to some 'base' settings that work for the TD25 and then tweak from there.

3. If nobody responds to my point #2, perhaps somebody could help me with a more specific problem. When I am playing live, I find that my snare can get 'lost' in the mix of everything. It's almost like the cymbals or all the other sounds take precedence and one snare hit will not really trigger. Then it will come back to normal for the next hits. I know this is probably one setting (and it's probably a basic one), but I just don't know what it is.

4. I got close to figuring this out once, but now I have to revisit this to get it right. I need a dependable snare with a cross-stick sound that triggers properly. How do I do this again? I think it has something to do with having the snare sound at higher velocities, and the cross-stick sound at lower velocities...

Thanks in advance for any input.

EDIT: I suppose I should also add to point #3, that I really like snares that 'crack' when hit. So that is the sound I like going for. Not sure if the settings make a difference when trying to go for that sound

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Hihat 'open' sound when I change kits
« on: October 12, 2018, 03:55:12 PM »
Hi there,

I consider myself a new drumit 3 module user. I'm using a Roland TD-25 kit with the Drumit 3, so that means I'm using a VH-11 hihat.

I was wondering if anybody else has experienced something similar to what I have. When I change kits, the hihat sound will play like it's open even though I have my foot down on the hihat pedal. After I let it up and press down again, it operates as normal.

I'm not sure if it's an error on my part calibrating it. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / SOLVED: Mount for the Drumit 3
« on: September 17, 2018, 06:14:09 PM »
Hello everybody,

I am a new drumit 3 module user. I've had the module for a couple of weeks now, and I'm enjoying it despite some of the learning curve (which I was expecting).

My main motivation for purchasing the module, was because I have a Roland TD-25 kit and I was getting tired of the sounds.

One thing I wanted to get a better sense of before my module arrived was "How was I going to mount it?". I couldn't seem to find any good (or recent) information on that topic. Even the forum posts seemed old or not applicable to the drumit 3.

The day it arrived, I took a look at it and saw the 4 screws at the back...but nothing else to assist with mounting it to a rack. I got thinking about fabricating something myself. But then I remembered my Alesis SamplePad Pro, and the special mount I purchased for it. I did some measurements and I figured out that lo and behold...the mount fit the drumit 3 module PERFECTLY. The dimensions were precisely the same!!

So I will share the link to the mount I purchased. I hope it helps other people try to do the same thing I did! Good luck.
