I have tom 1 split so the rim runs up to a crash cymbal.

If I use the D3 to pick a different crash for that rim, it also sets tom 1 to that crash sound.

In Dkit manager, I can set the rim to whatever sound I like.

Is this a short coming of the D3 that Dkit Manager addresses? Or am I doing it wrong?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Odd delay problem
« on: March 09, 2021, 03:14:03 AM »
If I play quarter notes on the bass drum and snare, all is well.

If I add the ride cymbal to it, it is usually ok.

If I had the hats on the same beat, every turns the rubbish.. Snare hit come a split second late, the ride may come a bit late or not sound at all.

Surely the Drumit3 has at least 4 note polyphony. What would cause this..

I have noticed this before while playing, on the times were everything comes down together (like ALL the time). A snare hit will come after the beat. I have isolated the issue now..

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Getting back to kit selection
« on: March 08, 2021, 06:09:48 AM »
When on a kit i can press the down arrow once to get to a page where I can adjust the volume of the selected instrument.

If i then press the kit button to back to the first page there is Save? option at the top. I hit the button up there and this kits is saved.

But the top row now said Save     Favo

If I turn the dial it changed to Move Copy  Swap

I don't want any of those things.. I just want to get in adjust the volume and get out. And then change kits again.. But I can't change kits as turning the dial it like it wants a selection of where to Move, Copy or Swap the kit.

How do I get back to just selecting kits with the dial?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Metronome not working
« on: February 09, 2021, 03:41:45 AM »
The metronome on my D3 module use to work.. Now it doesn't.. I don't know why.

On any kit I can use the page arrows to get to the ACMP page.. I can set Metronome or Wav. I select Metronome. I see the time signature, I can adjust the level. But I hit PLAY and there is not sound. I hit STOP then play again. No Sound.

Could this be a routing issue? I can't see how. I have outputs 1, 2, 3, 4 and Heaphones routed out.

What else is there? Why doesn't the metronome work?

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / Connecting to the PC with the 32gb mod?
« on: November 01, 2020, 01:23:48 AM »
A few years ago when I got my Drumit3 the late great Jman sold me 32gb upgrade for my Drumit3 module.

The gotcha with that upgrade was that I could no longer plug my module into my PC to edit the SD card. I have to remove the SD card to work on it and them put it back.

Well, a couple had years have gone by and I am just wondering if this issue has be resolved? Has there been a patch or software upgrade to allow the D3 to connect to PC with the 32gb mod? If not, is this possible?

Sharing drum sounds - wav / aiff / rex / Ride and Hi hat
« on: September 17, 2020, 10:45:24 AM »
Note: I had a problem before not getting a new instrument to work in the Dkit software. Alas, this as a PICNIC....

Problem In Chair, Not In Computer..

I had the wrong dKit file open..

Anyway, here are the two .dsdn files i have created from my Zildjian K Dark ride 21" and my Sabian 14" Rock hats Edge only sample for a one zone pad or something.

I'll do the ride again some day soon with more layers. It works pretty good now anyway..

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
« on: January 15, 2020, 03:17:32 AM »
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?
« on: December 11, 2019, 03:56:21 AM »
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?
