Lots of Questions!
« on: March 28, 2019, 02:20:05 AM »
Hello,

I recently discovered 2box and have a lot of questions -- sorry in advance! I figured this would be the best place to post rather than creating a bunch of separate threads...

Firstly, I am blind. I see there is a manual for blind users online. However, it appears none of the tools to create .dsnd files are accessible. Neither DSoundtool or the official editor from 2box show any text content that a screen reader will read, so they are basically blank screens for me. Is there any other way to create custom sample sets?

Related to the above, I found an example velocity map that can be used with DSoundtool, and it has velocities from 0 to 360, as opposed to the 0-127 MIDI standard. If, for example, I had a drum recorded at 40 velocities, how should this be scaled across the full range?

Next... My intentions for this module are to replace a large stick-played percussion setup that I own. What are good controllers for the 2box module? Obviously there is the pad set that 2box makes, though this is more along the lines of a standard drum kit setup. Is anyone using the Trap Kat XL or something similar to control their module? Any other suggestions? I want the most expressiveness possible.

Almost done...Does anyone have good suggestions for drum sample libraries that contain .wav samples without having to do a lot of workarounds? Specifically interested in cymbals, percussion and specialty drums like small snares, roto toms, octobans etc. So many libraries are encrypted nowadays which is very frustrating for those who wish to use the samples away from a computer...

Finally for now...I've found some posts where people discuss splitting the trigger inputs and adding more pads. Just to clarify, don't the pads already have 2 zones? So basically this allows for more pads, but not necessarily more sounds, since they could still be played from the rim of the original pads? Or is this incorrect? Hopefully this makes sense...

Thanks for any help!

You are right , toms inputs can be 2 zones , or you can have 2 discrete pads on the same TRS jack .

And also , welcome here ... The guy who made the blind friendly manual is the same that makes the dsnd editor . He is an active member of this forum , you could contact him if you need expainations on DSOUNDS and velocity .. His pseudo here is Lustar ...

have a nice day
