DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: Quiet Kick Beater
« on: September 22, 2018, 02:52:20 AM »
are you using a MKI or MKII kick drum setup?

i'm using a tennis ball beater with a MKI setup and the sound doesn't bother me. i'm sure it would be a lot quieter with a MKII kick drum though. you can mod a MKI kick drum to be like a MKII setup btw.

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: 2box snare o-rings and rim trigger
« on: September 09, 2018, 01:22:39 PM »
i don't think the tension of the floating rim assembly is critical, and the original o-rings are just o-rings, nothing special about them (which is why they break all the time, because o-rings are not made to be under tension like rubber bands, they are made to be compressed).

if the piezo is definitely working when you tap it, then most likely the little "rim tower" isn't touching the piezo at all. is the column of foam that the piezo sits on intact?

new OS is much appreciated!

new Wordpress website is underwhelming though. the sounds area in particular is amateur...

Good question, the Steinberg UR22-mkII says if you enable the High Impedance switch, you must use an unbalanced cable (=mono). I assumed the line-out of the 2Box was high impedance....
I did not try it with the high-impedance switch off and a balanced cable (stereo).  ::)

i think maybe you have things a little confused there.

firstly, a line-level signal is not high-impedance. the high-impedance setting is for plugging in electric guitars or basses. you definitely do not want to have the high-impedance switch engaged.

secondly, a balanced cable has three conductors, and can be used to send either a balanced mono signal, or an unbalanced stereo signal, depending on the equipment in use.

your audio interface has two mono inputs. use two cables, and connect the line outs 1 + 2 to inputs 1 + 2 on your interface. the cables can be either TS (unbalanced) or TRS (balanced).

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

why are you only recording the left channel? it will sound a lot better if you record in stereo...

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Re: wireless tranmiiter system for drumit 5
« on: October 30, 2017, 11:23:41 PM »
the main thing with wireless is that there are a lot more things that can go wrong. batteries and interference are the two big ones.

another common issue is sensitivity settings. if for some reason after sound check your transmitters are being driven too hot, there is nothing the FOH can do about it.

so you need to invest in a reliable system, and also be dedicated to taking care of the setup and operation...

« on: December 08, 2016, 10:12:52 PM »
plus the heat generated is now inside your non-vented enclosure instead of on the brick

actually the AC-AC adapter itself is also relatively inefficient, and generates a fair bit of heat, even when the module itself is switched off...

« on: December 08, 2016, 09:36:48 AM »
i use a 32 GB card with extender.

i rarely get that issue with the stock sounds, however i do get it with some kits that i exported from BFD3. i know that the kits exported with massive hi-hat files, and the module or card just doesn't have the bandwidth to keep up, sometimes resulting in bad latency...

this is one option, you would need to find the right size plug to attach to it:

Setup guides and tips / Re: SOMEONE PLEASE HELP

OS X or Windows?

was there driver software for the Alesis USB-MIDI device?

can you see the Alesis USB-MIDI device in the Superior Drummer preferences?

+1 to what Animal said above. it would be great if the 2Box pads had positional sensing...

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Re: New 2box sounds??
« on: September 03, 2015, 07:37:23 AM »
i agree that being able to easily import new sounds is what sets the DrumIt Five apart from competing systems. the module is the unique part of the 2Box system, and readily available expansion packs would be a good thing. the rest of the hardware is ok, but nothing special, unless you particularly like orange (which i do).

i have the skills and equipment to create my own DSNDs, however i am also very busy and would be happy to pay money for ready-to-go sounds.

version 1 of the module is a bit hamstrung with the slow USB connection and small standard SD card though, surely this will change in the next version...

IMO it would be less hassle and give you better sonic results to use the recorded MIDI data to trigger a drum VST...

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Re: Why allways startup on kit 54.?
« on: July 30, 2015, 12:21:08 AM »
assuming you are using the latest OS, have a look at page 2 of the "1.3 Addendum to the 1.2x operation manual".

it says there that the last saved user kit becomes the default kit on startup...

for similar reasons, i would not buy 2 Box pads again...
