Hi,

is the snare labeled input electrically the same as a tom-x input( exept the 3 zone feature) Can i connect a  2 zone snare pad to a tom input and just set in units the rigth type? The  reason is i want to connect a yamaha 3zone pad to snare input have three different sounds and connect a bigger 2zone mesh pad with tom 4 and use it as snare.

No i still use the old one because the new one doesnt store the Yamahe Hihat settings  at all.

Thanks for the review! The rim hotspot is a no-go for me.
Is the rim softer than a regular rim with rubbertrim? Or is it actually a metal rim with rubber on it?

thanks

the pad is made of 2 plastic circles ... the rim is protruding from the hoop part and is covered with a rubber rim .

But there is other news...

Yesterday i removed the meshhead to have a look . I found that the rosette is screwed to the drum , an that there are 3 more sets of holes every Quarter of the pad ...
So i set the mount so the sensor is at 12'o'clock facing me . Like this it is a bit like a 2box pad .

The pad reacts the same for the head , and the rim hotspoting is gone :) ... 
Of course you have to raise the rim gain a bit to compensate . 
To be honest , there is still a difference depending on where you hit the rim , but just a little .

In fact it is a bit "coldspotting"now  ... You have a bit less signal when you hit 6'o'clock  than 3'o'clock , maybe 2 or 3 dbs , but it s not a problem IMO .

so the td17 i bought came later than i thought . I have if for 2 week  now and i can give my first impressions about the PDX12 ..

I used it mostly with the roland module , and yesterday i tried it with the Drumit5 .

The pad is large and feels solid enough . The head is 12" but the overall diameter is more like an 13/14" regular snare drum   .

The head is triggering well and as it s a side mounted piezo , there is no hotspoting . The sensor is the same than the PDX8 .

Noise level is low , on head and also for the rim , covered with a rubber coating .

I didnt tear it down , but it looks like there is a regular mesh head inside the pad , not the white plastic rim thing they have done on the latest PDX8 series  . (On those pdx8 , you cant use a regular meshhead replacement because the head is glued to this white donut ...  )


The pad isnt too hot for the Drumit5inputs , i used PP snare preset for head  , linear curve , gain 1 , threshold 48 and it feels ok . RIM gain 1 ,curve linear  thresh 38 . So not a lot of exotic tweaking ...

To have a nice HEAD/RIM separation , i set LXTR to HIGH for the head , and vHIGH for RIM . Mask time 3 for RIM , No mask time for HEAD .

The only downside for me is the rim triggering . It triggers well , but it s not even ... it s clearly hotspoting when you hit at 6'o'clock , where the sensor is .
The difference between 6'o'clock and 3'o'clock is 5 to 8 db . 

Also , if you dont set the threshold a bit high  and don't use the LXTR thing , the rim is triggered sometimes when you hit the head hard with a tight meshhead . It should be less sensitive with a lower tuning if you use it as a tom . But with LXTR it s ok .

I thing maybe i ll try to add another Rim  piezo  , somewhere at 3'o'clock to get more even triggering , but for the moment it s good enough to practice on .

So , this cheap Roland pad is quite cool for the money and is totally usable with a DRUMIT 5 .  This will make a brilliant tom , floor tom or side snare .

 For a main snare , it s ok , but i  would prefer a converted snare with a side mounted trigger inside and piezos on the shell for RIM .

I just did this upgrade myself with a cheap SD extension cable of Ebay and a 32GB Class 10 SD card - everything works fine, except IO haven't solved my "save" issue, whereby I edit a kit on the 2Box and press the save button, nothing happens... which means I am having to take the card out and use external software to do it, then put the card in.

I followed the guide on here to unscrew and do the mod, super simple, worked first time
Can you please let me know the brand of the card and specific name?

Didn't you had any issues by using this card?
Best Tom

I have AD2, EZdrummer 2 with some expansions, and Superior drummer 3. Honestly, the more advanced the VST is, the better it'll be on the computer. But when you are exporting only 2 channels in a multi layer sample to play on the 2Box, you don't need to expand that much on VST...

EZD2 (and expansions) for me is the best to export on 2box - and it's the cheaper at the same time! The only thing is that most of them don't have 3 zone cymbals, but other than that, I usually get amazing results out of the box just using their pre-set.
