Title: DrumIt5 MKII with 64gb Cards
Post by: tsss27 on October 30, 2020, 11:38:15 PM
So 2Box says the Mk II will take up to a 64gb SD card. However I don't see any recommendations for cards which are compatible, only 32 and smaller. Has anyone tested this yet? If one of the working 32gb cards has a 64gb version with otherwise identical specs, is it safe to assume that this will work?

hey on air again here )))
Same here no success with 64GB after alot format tries(
best i got was getting  it work to boot the os but then didnt read the Kits says unaligned_cluster
it is a 64GB Sandisk extreme pro 170mb/s
will try other cards soon

Don’t forget to format the card in fat32 format. (Most 64 GB is formatted in ExFAT as standard)

Did you had success Zourman)?

That’s nice!

So You did use the 64GB Sandisk extreme pro and got it working? Have you played with it for a couple of hours with the implementation? The sound glitches will probably show up after a couple of hours of playing.

And please just update for the forum where the blocker was in your case to get it going.

After a long time trying i got it to work on 64GB )

i think it will work on all normal cards 64GB as i guess
i run it under a
ProGrade 64GB 250MB7s SDXc V60   2 10 and also
SunDisk Extreme Pro 64GB 170MB/s sdxc V30 3 10
 and feels like the 32GB behaviour in playing didnt see any difference

i will tell you  the solution i found

the way is to clone your working  32GB card from your Module  and write an image of it to PC

then take a 64 GB card and write that image on it ( you dont have to format anything)
The prog i used  working here is :
Win32 Disk Imager      here to be found    https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

then you can try if it works already

but at that step it behaves as 32GB

then if it works you enlarge the patition to full 64GB and voila )

To enlarge to 64GB use the Program Minitool Partition Wizard
here to be found   https://www.minitool.com/backup/shadowmaker-pro.html?from-pw-pop

Both Programs are freeware for our use in that term

In the partition wizard you load the 64GB card
 it has 2  partitions one 32 GB with your image on it and behind unused space
 now simply extend the partition with that prog to full size of the card and
there you should go

BTW i tested on extender with old 2Box drumit five and it also reads it,
couldnt tes it cause it is not connected to drumset
you can also try it on drumit 3 i guess strongly it will work
give it a try  nothing to loose)

a sad thing is to say that all support of 2Box regarding this issue not reading 64GB didnt happen
they didnt answer help or give a solution or even tell that it will be possible
it is the main reason i bought the module for that 64GB feature mentioned fom them
 it took me many Days of testing, alot money of buying Cards of diffrent brands and speeds
 It should have been the money and time from 2box to spend on that Problem

so i hope it will work on your sides and gives the 2Box Family the Ram it neeeeds)

we need to try this out...

Roel, I am in the states. What brand 64 gb card works and where did you purchase if you don't mind me asking?

I don't have a 64 gb sdxc card, I still using the 32 gb sdhc card with the extender mod.
But I'am gonna order a 128 gb sdxc card soon and gonna try it it works with my 2box Drumit 3 module.

this is the PNY 128GB sdxc card then I order:
https://www.cameranu.nl/nl/p3139686/pny-elite-performance-128gb-sdxc-class-10-u3-100mb-s-geheugenkaart

For now I using a 32GB PNY sdhc card 100mb/s and I never run into problems with that card.
So I'am curious that bigger PNY Cards will work, offcourse we must format the new cards to FAT32 to get it work.
but it will be great if those card will work too....

128 GB or 256 GB didnt work with my solution  i was trying it promt after get success with 64GB an i still use 64GB without slowdown or any errors
what works with bigger cards is to seize then down to 64 GB what makes no sense even you only have bigger card then 64GB
Interresting for me would be if someone was always successful with my solution
seems not much interrest in that doubble up memory

Hi!

As I might been indicating above in a post...I don’t think the Drumits can address more memory than 64GB...(But I need to verify this with reliable sources)

But - without testing...you never know! Good tests!

i wil get my money back I will send the 128gb card retour, now the question if i buy a 64 gb sdxc card and i format it to fat32
does it 100% work with my 2box drumit 3 module?

So 64 GB will be the maximum for 2box well I think its enough to handle my kits.

Before I begin with your solution, do I have to format the 64 gb card to fat32? or let it in original mode exfat?

Post by: ANGR77 on December 29, 2020, 04:02:08 PM
No, not needed, the image app described in step 1 in Jojo34s excellent description, makes a copy of an existing working 32GB card (which is fat32 formatted)

This stored image will then in the next step be written cluster by cluster to the 64GB card ... which also through this also will include the FAT32 formatting.

Post by: ANGR77 on December 29, 2020, 04:46:20 PM
I must also add that after been studying jojo34 excellent findings how to get 64GB card running, I can just confirm that it works as a charm...

I used a 64 GB card from Sandisk Ultra 120MB/s...(SDXC card class 10) - which there was no way in hell to get it to work by just using plain fat32 formatting and then copy all 2box files. This only made the card to boot forever or displaying the message unaligned clusters.

But doing the steps described by jojo34...it actually started to work. :-) No glitches or strange things yet regarding the new 64 GB card when running it in 2box. I will now add more samples to my card and see what is happening. (I had 26GB on my original card...I will now move above 50 GB...)

I am guessing that taking Jojo34 route of preparing the card makes a SDXC to behave like a SDHC...(and handle the SDXC erase block boundaries in the right way)

So big Kudos to Jojo34!

Hi guys wanted to let you know that my 64 GB Card does work with a 2box Drumit 3!
Man oh man I needed to be very patient with this... was working on a old windows pc at my parents home.
But after a while it was finally ready! and it work perfect!
The card that I use is a PNY 64GB Elite Performance 100mb/s.

I want to thank Mr. Jojo34 (Mag) for his work and helping me true the process.
I'am very happy guys! 64 GB is perfect for me!

Again its a shame for the lame 2box support on this issue.

Post by: ANGR77 on December 29, 2020, 05:30:13 PM
But I think we are a bit lucky here...64 GB is probably the maximum size that you can address in DrumIt...and that we really are pushing the limits here. :-)

So keep looking for sound hiccups and glitches...when using these cards...but I must say it looks promising after been drumming for 2 hours.

Best Friends.

Tested with a 128 GB SDXC Card from Kingston with Jojo34s new findings - so here comes my 2 cents:

Performing all outlined steps in the 64 GB approach described by Jojo34 - but instead in this case use a 128 GB card, extend the partition to include the whole SDXC card - e.g.  128 GB. This will however leave you with the disappointing result that the Drumit will just try to boot forever.  :(

Ok - some more tests:

So the conclusion is - around 60GB is the maximum which all Drumits can address. (A normal 64GB card will probably leave you with a partition size on around 58 GB). Based on the fairly advanced process to generate a working SDXC card - I think we can estimate that 2box never will officially be supporting 64GB. (But I can be wrong here -  8) )

But we have a nice workaround - and it is actually quite hard to fill up all 60GB with dsnd files...!  ???

edcito thats good to do with that image but should not be the cause of latency try another card also 32GB if available.
i sometimes have stops or latence issues if i made changes in the module while playing and didnt save the changes   or if i am still in for example   in calibration mode on hihat or if i  activated a drum channel by pressing it and change the sounds  and play while not saving the kit or the unit changes i made.
but very rar i get that
 when pressed save the changes  no issues at all after.
 i have 2   64 gb cards running like charme (discribed on earlier post)
 all my 32 gb  cards no issues
do you have the latest firmware on it

Well I tried to get my MicroSD 64GB Samsung EVO Plus working in 2box. Even with my IT expertise I wasn't able to crack the formatting problem after a couple of hours, stopping short of making a Linux bootdisk. So I cloned the original using MiniTool as recommended. Easy, extended to 64GB, works, but inefficient.

Surprisingly while I was testing, one of the default snares on the original MicroSD cracked up really badly. Alarming that my MKII had an audio anomaly that early - I hope it isn't a problem.

The original 2box MicroSD beats the Samsung by about 0.4ms less on average read access - so I am still looking to procure a better 64GB card.

Best bet I found is an WD IX QD334 Industrial microSD (https://www.westerndigital.com/products/commercial-removable-storage/industrial-microsd) 64GB SLC however it has proactive error checking so it could cost some latency. Difficult to discern details at this technical level without sending a few emails.

Worth a punt at £92?  8) It's not that bad considering the higher seq write speed SLCs go for £500+

Most other manufacturers I've researched cap their SLC line ups at 32GB unfortunately.

So I discovered what the audio anomaly is; my speakers peak protection kicking in!  ::)

Funny story, I somehow managed to play just below the threshold that it would only cut out when I thought the module was overloaded - of course, it was just loud enough to happen playing 5 stroke tom rolls.

Secondly, due to an incompatibly with my subwoofer (which I am resolving) I hooked up these balanced speakers directly to 2box. Since they were crossed over at 80hz previously - the problem never occurred before!

So I'm putting that new 64GB SLC card on hold since my Samsung EVO 64GB seems to work flawlessly, at least till it comes down in price.

Are there any new discoveries about other card specifications besides the size? At some point the consensus seemed to be that the read speed should be no more than 80-90 MB/s, but obviously that information is dated now because at least Anders is successfully using a faster card.

I'm experiencing some minor latency with a SD2 kit using a 32 GB SanDisk Ultra 90 MB/s SDHC card (see this thread (https://www.2box-forum.com/index.php?topic=4909.0)). I'm planning to try a 64 GB SanDisk Extreme 150 MB/s SDXC that I spotted at a local supermarket to see if it works better.

My 64 gb card is a sandisk extreme 120mb/s...and have been working fantastic.

It looks like these bigger cards are more forgiving in terms of latency etc to what we have been used to in the past.(but this of course just feeling - not any science behind )

Well, I got the 64 GB SanDisk Extreme that I mentioned earlier and got it working on my DrumIt 3 with the steps described by jojo34, but unfortunately the latency issue is still there. Might be a bit off topic at this point, so I think I'll continue elsewhere.

Hey Halftime,
 how do you recieve the sound  ? directly from the module in Headphone  so no noise canceling or bluetoth or smth like that some headphone have processing inside makes the sound comming late
same on output  of module if some device is inbetween or a PC without interface causes latency i use like this with interface and asio drivers
if you experience the latency only by use normal headphone on the module itself   i remember if the modue is in status of unsaved kit or setting mostly if a pad is activated to give it a new sound  then i have some latency as long as i dont save the changes ... after saving and maybe also reboot the module all works fine    btw i also have SanDisk  card running extreme pro

Hi jojo34,

I'm using just the module with normal wired headphones and I'm making sure I'm in the basic kit view when playing.

We've been trying to figure this thing out with Lustar but so far it's still a bit of a mystery. I have no problems playing kits consisting of 2Box samples, but this kit exported from Superior Drummer 2 is causing latency even though it's not any bigger than the 2Box kits. Setting decay to less than infinite does not help. Lustar's best guess so far has been that it's the SD card, but we have also been wondering if this might be somehow related to hi-hat settings because Lustar's test kit where the hi-hat bow sound was removed seemed to perform better. The investigation continues.

After struggling to get this done with Mac tools, I gave up and used my Windows 10 VM.  Following the instructions as written, it worked the first time.  I purchased SanDisk Ultra SDXC UHS-I 64GB cards. No issues booting, nor any audio glitches that I can detect. 

One more e-drumming compromise eradicated.  ;D
 
THANK YOU for this great tip.
