Your Ride and Crashes are already taken care of by the Cymbal inputs of the 2Box which can be assigned as 3 zone or 2 zone. The way to add the splash and China is to split a couple Tom inputs. All 4 or the tom inputs are splittable with a common splitter like this: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/YPP117--hosa-ypp-117-6-inch
So with that instead of having the rim sound on a tom you will have only the head sound but it leaves the rim open to adding your single zone cymbals. The way I would split is to leave all 4 of your toms on the tom inputs 1-4. And use a splitter on 2 of the toms for the Splash and China. That way the toms all have the correct sound assigned to them ...... which means less redoing of the sounds ..... but on the 2 toms you split you will choose the correct splash or China sound from the instruments in the module ...... Many of us have been doing that on the Drumit Five for many years.

Ok, thanks.
Let's assume that I wanna use 2 zones crashes can I use the input B of those to trigger another single zone instrument like a cow bell or so ?

NO .... the B input is ONLY for the Bell side of a Roland 3 zone style cymbal. That was already answered by Anders.
I could tell you where to stick that piezo! :D ;)

I know but Anders said that my question gave him an idea ... I was hoping in secret that there was a way to use the B input ... :)
Jman I am interested in some of your products, I'll send you an email later this week.

I understand. Sure, shoot me an email anytime.

Just for information for you or anyone that reads this explaining the Cymbal B input. One of the questions I asked Bengt at NAMM this year was directly associated with what you want to do with the Cymbal B input. On Roland modules it varies how the Bell input of the module can be assigned. On some of their modules like the TD-12, TD-20 and TD-30 you can set the Bow and the Bell inputs up as 2 zone cymbals if you want instead a a single Roland style 3 zone type cymbal and use both inputs independently as 2 Dual Zone Crash type cymbals. On modules like the TD-9, TD-11, TD-15, TD-25 and the new TD-50 the Bell input can NOT be assigned a dif. pad type. The Bell input only works as a Switch using the Bow piezo of the Bow jack for the strike position and Velocity and the triggering is like this: triggers Bow sounds when the Bow (Piezo) is triggered and Edge sounds from the Edge Switch when activated (choke when squeezed) and Bell sounds from the Bell Switch when activated.

All that just to say Bengt's answer was the 2Box Drumit Three's B inputs are setup like the latter modules I mentioned where it is only used as a single switch in conjunction with the A/Bow input of the module. And the B input cannot be changed to a different pad type. It will only act as a single switch in conjunction with the A input. The B input also gets it's sound from the Cymbal .dsnd that is used for the A input...... and to my knowledge you cannot assign a sound separate from the Cymbal A's sounds (+Bell,+Bow,+Edge) which are contained in it's 2Box .dsnd file.

Cool Ed ..... so it looks like you can use a splitter on the headphone output 1+2. I noticed it did not have the 1+2! setting (with the exclamation) which is the Direct Out type setting. But as you can specify a sub-mix it should be possible to use it to send a stereo mix of just the cymbals or toms, etc ..... essentially giving you the 6 outputs that many are hoping for ..... look forward to your findings. J

Right, so the 1+2! is not there, as I never use it I didn't notice haha, but I want to confirm that the Superior Drummer and other VST's kits that I have exported so far sound the same through headphones than through the computer! I'm really happy with it and everybody should take that into account in favor of the drumit 3 if you mainly listen to it through headphones!

Yeah, that is great about the internal EQ/processing of the module isn't screwing up the headphone or 1/2 stereo out mix in the D3. I didn't even notice anything like that with the D5 and VST .dsnds ..... but after years of use I realized that I had sent 8 Direct Outs from the D5 from day one .... All dry that never passed through the on-board Mixer or affects ..... and that is very different in the D5 from the headphone or 1/2 stereo Mix.

Hi everyone,
I finally got my DI3 module and it sounds amazing. That's my first step in the 2box world. It is shipped in an ugly cardboard box, witch is ok for me, but there is no instruction manual inside, just a german quick start guide  :o !!! Where can I get a decent manual ??? I'm new here.
Thanks

Incredibly, at present, there is no a manual for Drumit 3.

You can get an english quick start guide here: http://2box.se/World/pages/products/

There are few differences between Drumit 3 and Drumit 5. You can get a Drumit 5 manual for the remaining characteristics not specified on quick start guide: http://2box.se/World/pages/downloads/

Since it's basically the same as the drumit 5, it wont be that much different except for a couple of pages explaining the new trigger type settings so yeah, they are not in a hurry.
