Unfortunately not, acoustic all the way which is great but sad at the same time! :(

Aw no 2Box, would have been great to hear your thoughts on that UC.  I just made a post saying my ideal live setup now is real cymbals, real snare (if possible but 2Box samples are good enough) and 2Box for everything else.  I think its amazing through a good P.A but I know what you mean.  Sometimes you just have to go with the accoustic stuff man, especially cymbals, hats and maybe snare - the only problem you'll ever get is a bust skin and everyone knows where they stand with a real kit.

So why did you decide against using the Orange wonder and plump for the real thing on the tour?  :drum3:

Well, most of the shows are support slots where there will already be a kit, so I will just take shells and cymbals. And I am a very hard player and I just love bashing out my Pearl kit, even though I think the 2Box could take it, I don't want to batter my newest toy too much as it was initially a recording/rehearsing tool.

Its funny as their old drummer has a Roland kit which they use to rehearse with and even play live with, but the guys said they couldn't get into the 'groove' - i assume this is down to the Roland sounding so unnatural. The kit is still in our practice room and and I so want to set it up and laugh. hahaha.

But maybe the 2box will creep in when we have the editor as we do play to a click live so we may incorporate some electronic stuff...

But it IS a shame. Maybe if we do a small 'intimate' headline show I might use it...

I am finally back, although we are halfway through another 'tour'. So good to get back in the loft and mess around on the 2Box again! I did actually use it over the summer as we played a wedding and I must say it worked really well!

I love using it when writing new stuff, means the band can all sit around and write/rehearse at low volumes and the drums still sound realistic....

Gonna try get back on here again, but seeing as my work has started blocking sites I can't get on it... need to research editing proxy.pac files! haha....
