DrumIt 5 Hardware / Re: Does 2 box MkII support FSR Triggers?
« Last post by welshsteve on March 25, 2019, 11:20:45 PM »
You will need to power the Inhead/onhead separately. I have used the onhead with a Drumit5 and it worked great. You have to tweak it differently from a mesh head. I used RUB1 setting and had to set the curve to a NEG setting. But being the nature of FSR treashold and cross talk were not an issue. I honestly don't understand why that tech isn't more widely used.

Hello,

I have exactly what you're looking for. Please contact me in PM for the details.

I made a few measurements on this, you can find them here on the forum.

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Does 2 box MkII support FSR Triggers?

It says it can be used with any trigger mostly so I was just wondering. Never much cared for the Inbox, and having to use 9 volt batteries. I noticed now that they have a FTB box for powering six dual zone or 6 single zone.

Woah -  that footblaster looks very intriguing.

I think that type of sensor will likely wear out quickly, but as long as they sell replacements.

Time to look for user-reviews of this thing.


THANKS !

Krillo,

Nice work!


-  but could you possibly also test with a large-ish kick pad?

I suspect that the latency will be more, since the waveform is larger & thus takes more time to crest.

Thanks!

I set up my old dd4 kick pad with a mesh head and a ddrum trigger (the pads internal piezo is busted). Resulted in a quite sloppy signal, as expected. Latency with the drumit3 was somewhere between 3,8 to 5,8ms. Not a solution that I would use.

Something you might want to consider is the footblaster. Triggers from the pedal instead from the actual pad. https://footblaster.com/
Don't know if it makes any click noise as it hits the pedal, but should give a cleaner trig signal than the Hart Mesh pad you mentioned. Might work with the ddrum3.

Krillo, you da' MAN!

-  But in my situation, either recording a full band in the studio or doing live sound for the same, I could never even come close to 96K /  48 buffer.  I'm currently using a 12 core PC OC'd to 5 Gz,  and with a full session (including keyboard VSTi's,  effects, etc,  I can only run 88,2K / 256 buffer. With my Lynx audio system, that gives a true i-o latency of about 8 ms.  Add in the module's midi conversion and that's almost 11 ms.  Switch to a 2Box, and that's 12 ms.   -  WAY too much for the band to play in the pocket.

So, we're both right.

Your setup is the fastest, and quite acceptable,  but (as I see it) it's only applicable for a drummer playing live, using a fast laptop for nothing but drums,  into the PA or an amp.  -  And IMO,  with THAT situation, there's no need for more than the onboard sounds, so why not bring just the module, and have faster response at the same time?

What I'm doing right now with my Ddrum3, and what I will do also with a 2Box module, is that I combine the module's analog output with the PA's stereo cue mix, using a simple mini mixer.  The that goes to the various headphones and the throne thumper. (plus a "more me" send for each musician that needs one.)

In the studio, I also record the Ddrum's midi,  but only so I can replace sounds later, when mixing.

It's a decent way to get 'er done.

I did some testing.

ddrum3 precision pad -> Aphex Impulse (MIDI out) -> ESI ESP1010 at 96kHz samplerate and 48 samples buffer -> Reaper ReaSamplomatic (sample player VST), I got 4,65ms latency.

So that's a tiny bit more than drumit3 "worst case" triggering setting, which gives 4,5ms.

Superior Drummer VST or similar maybe adds some buffering, I don't know. Surely uses more CPU cycles I would guess.

But where can I get one in Australia :(
The Distributor is an NZ based company from what i was told.

I still have plenty of stock on the Stealth 2Box 32GB mod kits. Every card and extender is tested and verified plug n play ready. You just do the simple mod, plug in and go. These have the latest OS, and all the newest kits and sounds, which amounts to about 3GB more sounds already than you can fit on the stock module.... with lots of gigabytes of open card space for adding more.
Now .... Additionally, if you want, I will add the new eNerd kits to the card as detailed here: http://endre-enerd.com/index.php/tech-info/sounds I have also added all the extra new kits sounds from the Drumit Three to the Drumit Five! ..... And Vice Versa ..... All the 2Box sounds that are available on both modules plus the net are on the card.
That gives the card a total of about 16GB of kits and sounds just to start on either module. The new kits reside on the card in alphabetical order after the 100 original 2box kits on the module.
Just send me a PM or email if interested, let me know if you are in the US, or where you are located. J
