Hi Paspallum,

The older DrumIt modules have an internal SD card slot and can be modified to get an external SD card slot like the DrumIt Five MKII. The modification is quite cheap and easy to install by following guides on this forum (if you're located in Europe contact ANGR77).

Having an external SD card slot allows to upgrade the SD card if needed so if you find that the module doesn't keep up when you play, with a delay between the pad hits and the sound it produces, there is always the possibility to try another card. If wouldn't affect the loading speed of the kits in a noticeable way though. Even if the card isn't the best possible match for the DrumIt the kits are still loaded almost instantaneously when you select a different kit on the module.
If you notice latency when playing bigger kits there are some recommended settings to improve it. Karbonfaiba and halftime found that it could be improved a lot by increasing the Mask setting on the module (increase it as high as possible without missing hits). Setting the Decay to 10 instead of infinite can also help.

The older modules can be upgraded from the 4 GB SD card to 32 or even 64 GB. The size of the kits can vary a lot between the amount of samples and amount of kit pieces but for SD3 and BFD3 it should be possible to store about 30 kits on a 32 GB card. You can use the pieces from different exported kits to create more kit selections on the module or with the 2box Editor or DKit Manager.

I hope that helps, don't hesitate to send me a mail if you have more questions. There's also a small SDSE and DrumIt FAQ here:

Thanks for the feedback :)

EZDrummer 3 will definitely be high on the to-do list! I haven't tested it but if the MIDI mapping hasn't changed it may already work nicely with the semi-manual export without having to find the notes: open the region/marker manager in Reaper, select the first line for kick1, snare1, snare1 rim, toms 1 to 5, ride1, crash1, crash 2, splash1 edge, china2 edge, hats edge closed, hats edge open 1 to 5, hats bow closed, hats foot splash and it should be good to go. If needed you can press Ctrl while clicking Export to force it to use the semi-manual export.

2box DrumIt Loops fixes and improvements
Big thanks to Daniel from for reporting issues with loops in SDSE and DrumIt Manager. Check out 2B40 if you're looking to easily make music with loops!

Alesis Strike Tip: save memory
For anyone with both a 2box DrumIt and an Alesis Strike module, here's a great trick that was found by Matt Lee: you can enjoy the same memory saving benefits as the Max Tune Up feature from the DrumIt on the Alesis Strike!
- in the new version of SDSE, set Options > Convert > Max tune up to 5
- export some instruments with SDSE and copy them to your Strike SD card
- open the Strike Editor and create your new instruments, making sure to set the 'SEMI' parameter negative to match your max tune setting (for max tune up 5 in SDSE, set SEMI to -5 in the Strike Editor)

  • support for GetGood Drums One Kit Wonder Aggressive Rock, One Kit Wonder Metal and One Kit Wonder Modern Fusion (all with the default Invasion mapping)
  • support for Wavesfactory Legacy Drums with GM mapping (in Legacy Drums settings, articulation control select preset: Mapping_Brush_GM, Mapping_ClassicRock_GM, Mapping_TeaTowel_GM)

  • SSD5.5: support for SSD5.5 v1.2.4 when UI scale is set higher than 100% in the SSD5 settings. export tom rims.
  • SSD4: export HiHat foot splash for David Bendeth, Blackbird, Chris Lord-Alge and Terry Date. export tom rims for Chris Lord-Alge.
  • 2box loops: fixed issue when batch converting from .wav to loop .dsnd - big thanks to Daniel from for reporting this!
  • Convert, 2box: it is now possible to batch convert more than 127 single zone .wav to .dsnd at a time.
  • Convert, Alesis Strike: the Max tune up can now be used with the Strike profile, to save a lot of memory on the Strike.

A new version of DrumIt Manager is available.

Big thanks to Daniel from for reporting issues with loops. Check out 2B40 if you're looking to easily make music with loops!

Great! although changing the Windows scale setting to 100% is apparently only needed on some computers (Microsoft Surface) or when using a version of Reaper that wasn't installed and configured by SDSE during setup. The next version will install Reaper 6.29.

Sorry for the delay, I didn't see this post and only heard about the issue from someone else two hours ago!
The next version will work with SSD5.5 v1.2.4. It was an issue with the newer SSD5.5 version when the UI scale is set to 125% or 150% in the SSD5 settings. It should already work when it's set to 100% in the current version.

Thanks for testing and for the kind words. The added step is the way to go in this case. I should have mentioned it, with the new multi-edit mode the changes are only applied if the new value is different from the default multi-edit value which is based on the first selected kit (except for the dsnd). So if some value from the current kit is already the intended setting to be applied to all the selected kits I would do it in two steps like you did, or change it to something else first before clicking Multi.

Hi Bobby,

Thanks for the feedback!

It's a good idea about the multi edit mode, I have sent you a test version with an improved multi edit mode :)
The Multi-edit mode could already be used to adjust the panning, balance or decay in multiple kits at once, but only as long as the pads were set to the same dsnd instrument. In the next version it will also be possible to use the Multi edit mode to change almost all of the Kit values in multiple kits even when the pads are not set to the same dsnd.

Thanks for all your feedback Karbonfaiba it's much appreciated. I didn't notice that your post appeared on the forum since we last exchanged mails. Just in case anyone wonders the difference turned out to be dithering noise. It happened in SDSE when using the Max Tune Up option (which is disabled by default) or when converting directly from individual .wav samples to .dsnd (without exporting from a drum VST). In DSound Manager it happened when Max Tune Up was used (disabled by default) or when Maximize wasn't used (enabled by default)

SDSE 2.9.8 is released: download

It supports the new BFD3 version from inMusic, following the migration from to

  • support for more free VSTi from Alan Vista: Clavestinas, Clog Boxes, Cymbalistic, Hand Crash and Thai Gongs.
  • BFD3: support for BFD3 from inMusic/
  • BFD3: support for the Crush expansion.
  • BFD3: support for the rim click articulation for the first five toms (high, mid2, mid, floor 2, floor), set Tom Rim to Rimonly in Options > Zones. mapping is full so removed Perc 11 to 15.
  • 2box Kit: when creating a .dkit file the Decay is now set to 10 by default instead of infinite to help reduce latency.
  • 2box: fixed batch converting .wav samples to Loop .dsnd (when copying .wav samples in "SDSE Sounds", clicking Convert and checking "Convert all to Loop")
  • 2box: disable .wav dithering when Max Tune Up is used or when converting from already split samples, to avoid noise when playing the dsnd when the volume is increased higher than 0 in the Kit or Unit settings - big thanks to Karbonfaiba for reporting this!
  • SD3: fixed issue that prevented exporting from SD3 v3.2.4 when too many presets were installed.
  • SD3: the Ruff articulation can now be exported (enable "Ruff" for the snare in SD3 and set Snare Rim or Snare articulations to "Drag" in the SDSE Options)
  • GetGood Drums Invasion: added Ruff as second zone of the alternate snare, fixed China L mapping and exporting Bell L, Bell R.
  • Kontakt: fix to allow exporting from unsupported sound libraries that use multiple instruments instead of a single instrument (like Core Kit from vi-elements)
  • fixed setting sort folder option to "instr" - thanks to Karbonfaiba for reporting this
  • fixed possible issue after checking REAPER.
  • fixed support for the older version of VSDSX 1.0
  • support for REAPER 6.28

Thanks again for making that video Anders!

A new version of DrumIt Manager is available.

Hi Digs,

Thanks for your message, I'm afraid my previous mail got caught in the spam folder. I have released the new version with support for BFD3 3.4.024 now.
