Has anyone convert those ddrum 4 se samples to 2box wav samples?

Yeah it would be great !

I'm looking for Simon Phillips sound, and I'm not fully satisfied with kit 19 in 2box.

If I had a ddrum 4 brain, I would made the sounds immediately. We just need to record the velocities and then use Louis' software to create the library.

If someone with ddrum 4 lives close to Strasbourg (France), I would be happy to help him to make those libraries  :rock:

Arf ! I'm on Mac...
My mom still has a PC. I downloaded the hole library so I will try something this week-end.

Good luck! I bought an old Mac just because of the ddrum3 which was - contrary to the ddrum4 - Mac only :)

... it might be possible to sample them with your PC. Download the sounds and the ddrum4 tool. The tool plays the sounds on a PC (every single sample). I think there is a tool called something like 'virtual cable'. This allows you to record the played sounds digitally without D/A conversion.

I am afraid this will depend too much on the quality of your pc sound card

Well if there are Simon Phillips samples in ddrum 3 with the same quality than ddrum 4, it's great !

...However I am not sure if the samples will sound as good as on the ddrum4...


I think you're right: the ddrum4tool program can read all the sounds of the ddrum4 (very interesting), but it doesn't simulate the module.
It only reads the differents samples in each sound, and it seems that there are not enough layers there to build a good sound for the 2box brain, except perhaps for the percussions or the effects.
We can ask to Deve to improve his ddrum4tool between two OS updates (perhaps during the night?  ;D), but maybe the best way to get the ddrum sounds is to use a midi file created with DsoundTool (with several midi velocities, 60 for a tom/snare, 40 for a kick, 3 or 4 secs of silence between each midi note - more for huge toms or cymbals sounds), to send these messages to the ddrum brain and to record the resulting audio in a single file (stereo wav format, 44Khz, 24 bits).
I hope it will help.  ;)

No it won't as you don't have an audio playback. That's why it is called "virtual audio cable". It grabs the sound data directly without your soundcard playing it back.

The Simon Phillips Signature Sounds came up when the ddrum4 was current. The ddrum3 library doesn't contain them. But I prefer the Tom sounds from the BFD Gretsch expansion anyway. The only thing I miss is that BFD didn't make multisamples for different zones, just velocity. So I can't use the multisample feature for different position zones with these sounds on the ddrum3.

Hi.

Try this (PC only).
http://www.2box.se/Downloads/ddrum4wav.zip
Drop any ddrum4 mid file on it, and you get a bunch of wav files (mono 16 bit 44.1 kHz) in the same folder as the mid file. All wav files extracted take more space than the original mid file since the ddrum4 format is compressed.
This is just a hack, so no guarantees.
(You can use these files directly in the DrumIt Editor.)

Thank You very much! This is very usefull.

Do you know if the hidden and so called "DVA" feature/value in the ddrum3 can be used to get simalair algorithms with user loaded multisamples? I know it's not about the 2box but I understand you guys are still the knowledge pool for ddrum stuff due to your roots :-)

Do you think it would be possible to have such a hack the other way round? wav -> ddrum4?  ;D :o
