General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Help with Lustark's SDSE
« on: April 02, 2019, 11:24:35 PM »
So I'm trying to "Export" a complete kit from Addictive Drums 2 and all that I am seeing in my "SDSE Sounds" folder are .wav files.

I'm currently in email contact with Luxark, but I was hoping to maybe get some directions from users who maybe had to figure it out as well.

I just want to be able to drag and drop samples of complete kits into the DrumIt3.


So I picked up a Roland TD-20 to use with my DrumIt 3. What I have connected are: PD-105x2 up top, PD-125 for snare and floor, CY-14 for Crash 1 and 2, CY-15r for Ride, KD-8 (working on getting a KD-120, as that is what was supposed to come with the kit) and VH-11 for hats.

VH-11: I went through the Hi-Hat calibration set up and they feel pretty good. But I still dont feel as if I'm really getting a smooth closed to open range. Also, it doesn't seem to easily register quick open hat motions. I play with a lot of hat finess, so this is something I'd really like to figure out.

CY-15r: The Bow and the Bell seem to trigger WAY too easily. I only need to get close to the edge for the ride to "crash" and only need to approach the bell (within an inch) to trigger the bell tone.
Also, it sometimes will just randomly trigger the floor tom. And I tapped all around the rack and on the cymbal stand to if it was cross tall sensitivity, but I couldn't get that to trigger the tom. (Same thing happens with the crash and Hi-Hat at times).

CY-14: These are two zone cymbals, but I am only triggering the edge. Is that normal? Shouldn't I have a secondary tone zone?

PD-105 & PD-125: The main thing here is that these drums sound at times like they are creating a flam signal. Like it's triggering twice in close succession. Mostly when I am playing heavily and am triggering the "Rim" zone.

Anyway, any help would be VERY appreciated.

So I finally got my new eDrums running Addictive Drums 2 on my PC. And for the most part, it feels pretty darn good. Could be better, but very playable. (Biggest issue at the moment is the VH-11. Isn't always super smooth to open).

So should I expect similar latency if I rip and load kits from AD2 onto the DrumIt3? Or will it be better?

So I have a DrumIt3 and was wondering about linking it up to a TD-17 or TD-30 in the future. I'd I were to link up a TD-17, could I access the features of the TD-17, while utilizing the pad inputs on the DrumIt3?

Sorry, I'm new to all of this. I just know that you can link multiple Modules together. Just don't fully understand all the ins and outs.

I've heard that I won't be able to connect the DrumIt3 to my computer via USB after the mod. But is that only relating to moving data TO the module via the Editing software? Will the USB still work for accessing my VST's on my PC?

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I just want to get things cleared up before actually start installing the mod.

I know that this is a piece of software that a lot of people in this forums use. Has anyone had this issue when they tried Downloading using Win 10? I looked into it a little and noticed that some pieces of software (like this) will trigger a false positive from over aggressive malware blocking software.

Any suggestions? Am I safe to just instal this software onto my computer?

This might be a very stupid question. But seeing as there are ways to rip multi-layer sounds from VST's and export them onto the DrumIt3, are there ways to, say, get kits from an Alesis Strike or Roland TD-20/30 onto the DrumIt3?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Anyone use Addictive Drums 2 with DrumIt?
« on: February 07, 2019, 02:03:34 AM »
I'm looking into the right VST to expand my sound library. Superior Drummer 3 seems like a top pick, but it's pretty much a base price of $400 (all of which, I can't say I need). However, Addictive Drums 2 has a Custom package that is currently $100. This package allows the buyer to select three sound packages of their choosing (as well as some other MIDI and a la cart instruments). I dont need a ton of sounds, just want a few kits that are more up my alley.

Anyone have a preference about which functions better with a DrumIt module?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / DrumIt 3 MKII
« on: January 26, 2019, 06:51:28 AM »
Man, 2Box just announced their DrumIt3 MKII at NAMM 2019. This is kind of a blow for me, seeing as I just purchased the previous DrumIt3.

The MKII has 32GB of factory built in storage and has 6 direct lines out (instead of 4). Not a huge deal, but still would be nice to have more lines out. (In terms of memory, the MOD will suffice).

Do you guys have any thoughts or information that you've learned about 2Box at NAMM?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / eDrum Specific Headphone Recommendations
« on: January 24, 2019, 04:39:28 AM »
I currently have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 Pro closed back reference headphones that I use for basic recording. Would these continue to do the trick with my eDrum Kit? Or are there other options that are particularly well suited for that specific application?

I'm still looking to piece together a kit to accompany my DrumIt3. I've obviously been mostly eying Roland (PD105, PD125, KD120, CY14C, CY15R and VH12), but I'm wondering about other brands that function well with the Module. I know that the Strike Pro kit is kind of a mixed bag. I'd go that route if I wasnt so unsure about quality. Heard a lot of issues relating to nearly every pad.

But anyone have some positive recommendations that maybe aren't Roland? I'm just hoping to expand horizons.


I'm new to all of this. In my research I've only seen it really advertised from Roland. But given the seemingly open nature of the DrumIt 3, with a compatible pad, is position sensing possible? Or is it only something you can do with a Roland Module, Roland supplied samples and a Roland pad?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Ripping Sounds From Steven Slate
« on: January 11, 2019, 01:37:38 AM »
My band mate picked up Steven Slate (I think its 4?) a little while back, to help him program some scratch drums. I, personally, never really thought anything of it, seeing as I have a personal collection of boutique drum sounds.

Anyway, he loaded the software on my computer, just so that I could load up Pro Tools sessions and hear his drum ideas. But I've been hearing a lot about being able to rip velocity sensitive samples directly from VST's and also recently realized that the Pearl Mimic Pro uses Steven Slate and sounds pretty damn good.

So I was wondering if anyone has an easy "How To" or can link to a good tutorial that shows how to best get those sounds onto a DrumIt 3 module.


General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Storage Expansion Mod
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:45:30 AM »
Hey! I'm new here. Just received my DrumIt5 module, which is my first foray into eDrumming. I've worked in music retail in years past, which has allowed me to get a fair amount of hands on time with edrum, but this is the first time that I have decided to jump into a set up of my own.

So my hands on time with the DrumIt5 has been limited. However, I am blown away by what the sample editor allows me to do. And while I have a pretty substantial sample library to input, I would ultimately like to make a few of my own kits in the studio.

Which leads me to my question. Storage. The onboard 4GB isn't necessarily bad--given the drag and drop nature of the desktop setup. However I'm curious about this storage expansion mod that I've heard about.

I'm well aware of the tutorials out there, but my question has to do with exterior nature of the mod. It appears as if there is just an SD Card slot inside the unit, but mods suggest an external card reader, via data ribbon. I wouldn't need that. So is it simply possible to just plug in a 32GB SD Card, in place of the 4GB card that comes stock? Because I would gladly do that.
