Other e-drum systems / Re: New Alesis drum kit

200mb of ram in 2017 ... it s really stupid IMO ... any 100 dollar tablet has 2 gb inside ...
The Strike has 2GB, but the module has a limit so that each kit (either the stock onboard sounds or one that you build with the sound editor) has a 200MB limit.

They just put up a video of the Alesis Strike instrument editor. The process of importing instruments from VST sample libraries is covered toward the last part of the video. So, it looks like it is pretty good, with sufficient amount of velocity layers and round robins. From the description it looks like using SDSE for creating the instrument velocity WAVs then importing those into the Strike would work fine. The biggest limitation I see though is the on-board 200MB per kit limit. Those of us who have imported VST instruments and kits to the 2Box module know how that is not really enough MB's for our typical VST built 2Box kits. Even the original 2Box instruments like Hi Hats can be close to 200MB.
Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD7zj1yLVQg

That's it exactly. When I was looking to upgrade from Roland, I did consider a laptop with VST and a midi module. Probably would have cost about the same as the D5. But, I needed low latency, reliability, and to cart around as little equipment as possible. For me the 2box solution is THE solution.
One thing makes me wonder about the relatively small amount of D5s sold... (even considering that the edrum market is not massive to start with), it is very possible with smaller companies such as 2box to get completely overwhelmed by unexpected huge success and be totally destroyed by it. It would not be the first time.

I always wondered why the impact of 2Box has been on the low side. Yes, more then 5.000 units have been made and sold but somehow 2Box is overlooked by the mainstream media. I think it has to do with the budgets for marketing and the fact that the target group is advanced and looking for real sounds in the module instead of out of a laptop with VST.

Another thing is that I like to stick to what I have got and I know drummers who like to spent. (GAS)

Good to hear my module development, like 8 years ago, still makes people happy :-)

I am playing drums more than 20 yrs now and was initially reluctant to buy an electronic kit knowing how quickly they loose their value when compared to say a good cymbal. 2box DrumitFive is my first electronic kit and I feel with it I've hit a bullseye and even when there inevitable come its rival from other e-drum maker, I feel confident it will still hold its value with realistic sounds being on par with an acoustic set.

I've have access also to Yamaha and Roland kits but since buying 2box, I occasionally use only their pads and rack (when a small footprint is needed) with DrumitFive module and cymbals.

So, yes Mr. Deve Loper your module is still strong and sound  :rock:

I'm 99% happy since 2010 with my module ... Hope to be happy ten more years with it ...

Thanx  Mr Loper ;)

Digital Drummer published my hardware review (5 years 2Box and how does the HW keep up) and yes, I'm happy too. Just need to make fresh samples with Lustar's convertor (BFD2 and 3). Old SD is up and running for 5 years too.

BTW: you also decided to make it orange?

No, I was just saying the drumit 5 module is gone, really, now gone from thomann. I wait for the little brother 3

Confirmed ... it is no longer for sale. Bax still says it can be delivered but I do know they process 2box stock indication on a manual basis ... probably gone too
