Other e-drum systems / ALTERNATE MODE DRUMKAT 3.5 with Aquarian inhead
« on: April 01, 2019, 01:28:33 AM »
Hi guys ,

I made some researches to se if ALTERNATE MODE DRUMKAT 3.5 is compatible with Aquarian inhead without the need of an "InBox " , but didn't found the answer ...

I saw on the manual that the pad inputs can handle several FSR based  pads :
- proPAD - multi-zone FSR Pad 
- rimKAT - dual-zone FSR Pad
-poleKAT - dual-zone FSR Pad .
But as inhead & onheads weren't available when the manual was written ...

thanx in advance for your help ...

I recently discovered 2box and have a lot of questions -- sorry in advance! I figured this would be the best place to post rather than creating a bunch of separate threads...

Finally for now...I've found some posts where people discuss splitting the trigger inputs and adding more pads. Just to clarify, don't the pads already have 2 zones? So basically this allows for more pads, but not necessarily more sounds, since they could still be played from the rim of the original pads? Or is this incorrect? Hopefully this makes sense...

Thanks for any help!

You are right , toms inputs can be 2 zones , or you can have 2 discrete pads on the same TRS jack .

And also , welcome here ... The guy who made the blind friendly manual is the same that makes the dsnd editor . He is an active member of this forum , you could contact him if you need expainations on DSOUNDS and velocity .. His pseudo here is Lustar ...

have a nice day

it has a midi in so yes ... but is there any advantage in doing this ? Could you explain ?

you cant trigger the TD17 via MIDI with your Drumit3 as the TD17 has no physical MIDI input ...

It could be possible by adding a computer +midi interface to route the MIDI out of the Drumit module to the USB/MIDI in of the roland one , but why would someone do this ?

Do I need both Midi inputs for this? The In output is already occupied with me and I do not want to sacrifice one or two pads for something like that ...

of course you need to plug the midi out of the Octapad to the input of the module ... but you can daisy chain devices with midi ...

hi ,

it s also possible to use an old Roland OCTAPAD ... i have it in version 1 , the one from 1983  :rock:, it is capable to send MIDI "program change" instead of regular midi notes ... this way you can switch between 8 kits on the fly ... I assume later models also can do this ...

But be carefull , switchin kits on the Drumit 5 is not instantaneous ... it takes a little time , much less than half a second , depending of the Dsounds size maybe ... that can cause the first kick stroke to be silent .

I dont know it this was improved on the D3 or D5mk2 .

With the new 5 coming out in a month or 2, how long do you guys guess before a top end like Mimic Pro class module comes out. 3 to 5 years

A year and a half ... maybe ;)

i know it would be better not to have issues with the VH11 and the D3 ...

Maybe you should try the zourman box with the D3 ..?

I have issues with drumit 5 module associated with a macbook through a simple midi-usb cable. (The one from Prodipe)
It eventually worked in the past, but I often had this issue and today I just can't make it work.

Here are my "symptoms" :
- So, I don't have notes caught in any software, cubase, garageband etc.
- When using midi monitor, It shows some activity whenever I hit a pad, but with message "Invalid" and data "3 bytes".
- It is visible in the midi studio, and testing to send notes to the module from the computer works.

All ideas are welcome, I really wish I had midi working to record some tracks :)


try the midi cable  with a midi keyboard if you have one , if it still dont work .... it s time to buy another interface
