Link to the 2Box-to-SD2 MIDI MAP (valid until December 19)

http://wikisend.com/download/715190/2boxMIDIforSD2

You put it in folder:

user/(your user)/Library/Application Support/Toontrack/Superior2/PresetsEZX/MidiPresets/

To use the map - in SD2 window, select the MAPPING tab, and then drop-down-menu Presets (just above the "keyboard") , select MIDI, then User Presets, then 2boxMIDIforSD2

Voila!

It's quite easy to create a MIDI map in SD2 (in SD3 its available as a preset). I have the 3-cymbal setup and what I did was to assign 3 different crashes to each of the two 2box-crashes (1 each edge, surface, bell).

Other e-drum systems / DAUZ 6" mono rubber pads with Drumit 5
« Last post by edtc on December 12, 2017, 07:33:31 PM »
hi guys

i recently bought 3 second hand DAUZ 6" rubber pads , like those on this picture  .





They were ultra cheap ( 5 euro each ) and ultra old too ( maybe 15 years or more ) , but i wanted to have some for a long time so i bought them ...
The parcel arrived today ... The plastic has been glued at some points where it was cracked , and some screws were a bit rusty .
 One pad has real low signal compared to the others that worked fine . So i opened it to see what was wrong ...
After re-soldering the wires well , it was the same , so i changed the 27mm piezo for a brand new one . Then it worked fine like the others .


The rubber on my pads is quite stiff , it maybe because it s old , i guess on actual models it could be softer and more bouncy .
The construction of the pad is really simple and clever . Its a metal plate inside a rubber envelope with a piezo sticked in the center. This "head" is fixed on the body of the pad with 3 springs , like a car shock absorber . I m sure it helps with crosstalk ...

I have the so-called " Sandwich Mount "  , that uses 2 rubber gaskets in between them you sandwich your rod ... so everything is done to avoid bleeding from other pads . This is nice as you just have to set the threshold around -40/-36 , and don't have to use Xtalk cancellation .




For the moment , all the Roland or Yamaha simple rubber pads i tried were way too hot to use with the Drumit 5 , unless you add a resistor to lower the gain ...
( Without resistor , It s possible to use the ACC trigger mode that allows a higher gain , but IMO the pad's response is weird...  )

 Those Dauz pads have just the right level !!!
... I use them with PAD8 mode , normal curve , -40 threshold , gain between 0 and +3 . At 0db , it s hard to reach level 127 , so that s perfect ...

The pad is hotspoting a bit when you hit it dead center (where the piezo is ), but the response is nice and accurate .
 You can place 2 pads on the same mount without having a lot of troubles with crosstalk thanks to the spring insulation design + rubber sandwich mount ... 6" is small and it s easy to fit it anywhere on any kit .


 
   It s quite easy to DIY meshpads with success using existing drum hardware , but when it comes to make reliable small triggers that you want to be able to attach strongly anywhere without crosstalk , it s another story ...

They arent cheap new actually , and not available in Europe , but for a bit more than a PD8 , i think it s worth the extra money if you need something like this .

Just my 2 cents ...

Ok, great, sounds easy enough and i did use DrumMic'a in the past just  can't remember how it worked  :P
Thanks!

Loaded them into my module last night and had a thoroughly fun practise session. Well worth the price !!! Thanks for the early Christmas present Anders and I look forward to future samples from the Zourman Stables. Well done !!!!! :rock:

Big-Big thanks!!

More samples are coming up! Stay tuned!!

Best regards

It works with Reaper but requires Kontakt (even the free version) so you would need to install it first. Then to export it works the same as other Kontakt libraries like DrumMic'A, SDSE will display check boxes to select the pieces that you'd like to export: open SDSE and Reaper, Select Kontakt in the list, load GetGood Drums Halpern v2 in Kontakt, adjust the sound, select the pieces with the check boxes, click Export.

I had a question about GetGood Drums compatibility as i didn't see it listed on the website but its mentioned on the previous page in this thread. I am not too familiar with it but is it compatible with Reaper and I can use SDSE just as easily as any other VST or is there a special setup for this?

H!

Many thanks for downloading the snare!

The sounds are ready to use, just to place directly on your 2box modules memory - without going through the Drumit Editor. (It is easier to do it directly on your 2box module)

Each sound includes both the head and rim or head and rimshot sound. You get both in dsdn filformat.

I see what you mean...In the Drumit five Editor - it is right that the snare sound request separate dsdn files for head & rim. (This is only for the snare...a bit odd design of the software...if you drag the snare to a Tom instead...you get both directly)

I would just drag the files directly to your 2box module instead.

Have a look in the manual how to install them on your 2box module: https://zourman.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/ZD_manual_Ludwig_BB_10.pdf

Included here is all nice info about the snare, the sample, microphones etc...

Best regards

hello, first, the sounds are very good. Problem: I downloaded the dsdn and unzipped.
after loading in the drumit editor are the snare sound and rim sound the same?
