General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Re: 2 box vs Mimic sounds?
« Last post by Jman on Today at 03:34:22 AM »
Just so you 2Box Guys don't get too envious of the Mimic. I've been playing with the Mimic for more than a week now and since I am doing a whole lot of specific kit piece and trigger configurations I don't have the 2Box on most of the time ...... I have both modules run into my mixer with multiple direct outs. Today at the end of the day I cranked on both modules ....... Sound wise, the 2Box is great, I honestly could not say that the Mimic sounds better than the 2Box ..... Period ...... The 2Box module is still excellent IMO. There are lots of mixing/studio features in the Mimic ...... but in the end ...... just listening to the sounds, the 2Box still stands proud ..... J

Just downloaded them onto pc, they sound awesome. Look forward to loading them into my module. Hopefully will trigger them at gig at the weekend.

Hey peoples!
The awesome person that is Endre eNerd has released some custom Dani Gerendas Tama Starclassic voices for the 2box module.

Although he offers them as free downloads he also requests if you like them to make a donation, which I will now.

The original Radio Pro voices are there too but if you scroll down you'll see the new ones. I haven't tried them yet but props have to go Endre for keeping alive the power of the drumit5.

I salute you sir!

I'm using my 2box kit mainly as e-drum-pads to trigger to Superior Drummer (now verision 3) and I finally decided to find a fix to be able to use the 2box cymbal choke function to create the MIDI aftertouch messages that many SW drums (including Toontrack) prefer.

Background (requires some knowledge about MIDI):
When you're using the 2box kit as a MIDI controller, pressing the edge of a 2box cymbal generates a NOTE ON message with a number adjacent to the NOTE numbers generated when the bell, surface or edge is hit. Releasing the edge sends the corresponding NOTE OFF message.

My Superior Drummer can achieve cymbal chokes in three ways. Either a choked hit is triggered with a specific MIDI key,  or the cymbal decays as long as a MIDI key is pressed and choked when the key is released, or the cymbal chokes when a MIDI aftertouch message is received - the last method being the best solution using e-drums. However, the 2box solution to use a specific choke MIDI key is not suported.

So what I need to do is to convert the 2box choke MIDI key to the correct MIDI aftertouch message.

This solution is valid for my setup, with the 2box kit with default MIDI mapping, connected to its own MIDI input and Logic X as DAW. It's usable for any drum plugin that accepts aftertouch cymbal chokes. Probably functions similar to what use in Logic X are available in other DAWs too.

- In the Logic X Environment, create a transform module and connect it to between the 2box MIDI input and the sequencer.

- Set the transform module up to convert the specific choke NOTE message to a poly aftertouch message. For example one 2box crash cymbal send a G4 note when the rim is pressed. The transform module converts the G4 note to a poly aftertouch message, for note F4 (which corresponds to the surface hit). 

- Volia!  :rock: ;)  Pressing the 2box cymbal rim chokes the corresponding SD 3 cymbal just as supposed!

A more thorough description would require a detailed Youtube video - but here is the principle; Use the DAWs MIDI message conversion function to convert the NOTE message to poly aftertouch.

- One transform module can handle only one cymbal. To choke also the other one/two, you need one/two additional modules with the corresponding settings. In Logic X the additional modules can be daisy chained.

- A slightly less compclicated solution would be to create channel aftertouch messages instead of poly aftertouch messages. However, choking a cymbal that way will choke all the cymbals in the kit. Using poly aftertouch you can choke just the cymbal you grab while the other(s) keep on ringing.

If you're interested I could go into more detail (especially regarding Logic X). However, it still requires some knowledge about MIDI messages, and MIDI conversions in your DAW (Logic Environments or similar).

Hi, don't worry the warning is a false positive, here's the link to check it with 66 AV programs on virustotal: virustotal
It tends to happen more on new files and I updated SDSE today with last minute fixes.

Please don't hesitate to send me a mail or PM if you have questions about SDSE!
Hello Lustar

I'm a new edrum user and your program seems to be really interesting !

By the way, i'm trying to download SDSE but my AV detect a Trojan in the file...
Is it normal ?

Oh that's not good. The only thing I can suggest now is to take it to an electrical engineer to repair, 2box should be able to supply a circuit diagram to a qualified service personnel to repair it with or maybe they themselves and repair it for you? I hope you get it sorted!

I have it on good authority a new version of the OS is being made as we speak, if it's not been written already!
