General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Snare rim shots
« on: January 22, 2020, 09:11:39 AM »
If I pick say the Simon Phillips kit on the D3 that is in position 5 on the module, for example. . .

If i hit the snare I get the snare sound.

If i hit the rim of the snare, I get a rim shot sound.

If i hit them both with one hit, they both sound.. BUT

They are out of sync. It sounds like a flam. This kit is one of many in the module that have the same issue.

I figure I must have the wrong module setting for the snare. I don't want both sounds, especially as they are so badly recorded (out of time). What am i missing here?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Ride issue

My ride ATV ride cymbal works perfectly, as long as I don't play the snare drum..

Might happen with other drums too.. But that it moot point. This is a show stopper.

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / 4 crash cymbals?
« on: December 28, 2019, 04:20:48 AM »
It is possible with the D3 to run CYMB1A as two separate crash cymbals? It's a stereo plug and it has 2 different sounds coming out of them in some cases. 

I made a spliter cable and tried two 1 zone cymbals. One did not make any sound at all. The other sounded like it was choaked the moment I hit it.

Seems it's not possible with CYMB1A.

Would it be possible with addition of CYMB1B?  My 2 zone Alesis cymbals only use CYMB1A currently so I don't know what CYMB1B is for.

How can I run 4 single zone crash cymbals on the D3?

Setup guides and tips / Sampling a ride cymbal?

I have a beautiful old Zildjian K 20" dark ride cymbal that did 100s of shows with me in the  90s and 00s.

I would like to sample this ride to use with my D3 module.. If I am going to do this I want to do it right..

I watch this excellent video from 2Box that shows how simple it is to sample a snare at a bunch of different velocities and turn in into a file used by the D3.

Now there is big difference between a snare and a ride.. One hit on the ride might last 20 seconds +++.

The bell, bow and edge each need a range of different velocity hits.

Needless to say, this would end up a very very large instrument file.

Some compromise would need to be made. My question is, where? How much? I guess this is a art in itself.. Are there any guides on how to sample cymbals?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / ATV 18" ride issue
« on: December 08, 2019, 05:07:39 AM »

I recently got a new ATV 18" ride to go with my Drumit 3 module.

But default the ride cymbal sounds are on Cym 2, 'a' and 'b'.

At least that it what I thought.

This cymbal as 2 outputs.. They are labeled Edge and Cup.

If I plug Edge into Cym2 A, I get a nice ride sound.

If I plug Cup into Cym2 B, The whole ride thinks it is a Hi Hat!!! An setting I made to that ride at that time effect the hi hat settings.

What is going on?? Any idea how to fix this?
