General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Re: Drumit 5 MK2 first impressions
« on: April 13, 2020, 12:34:24 PM »
The Di5 MK2 content is on the 2Box site now. Can anyone confirm if the new content is usable in the Di3 with the card mod?


I have downloaded DI5 MKII content on DI5 MKI module and everything works flawlessly. Should be also compatible with DI3.
I'm impressed with new kits and once more happy with my choice going for 2box set. 2box is like Apple supporting like 10 year old hardware with newest SW.  :rock:

It is always A1392 which is used...In the hihats.

How so? We also thought about trying out one which is more sensitive, I think it was A1391. Are there any other considerations in play for hihats apart from sensitivity?

2box modules measures the pedal on the circuits current in the power in voltage is always the same when trying to measure. :-)

Yes, my fault. I didn't delve in the topic, indeed that was the current not voltage. I provided my friend with all schematics and other information from forum. He even found one element was different in schematics (early controller version?). Anyways, when he tested with magnet, the measurements were within limits why he thought the chip is OK (but the hihat wouldn't calibrate) until the new one was soldered in its place.

I had exactly the same thing on my hihat recently. The faulty element was hall sensor on controller board. I ordered on ebay, but shipping from UK took more than month so that my friend who is electronics expert ordered another one and received it after 5 days. Make sure its A1392 (there are A1391, A1393, and A139 with different sensitivity)
Mine was from
Product code: A1392
IC Hall Effect Sensor, linear, supply 2.5 – 3.5 V, rest voltage 50% Vcc, sensitivity 2.5 mV/g, output band 10 kHz

Interesting thing, the voltage measurements on faulty one were within limits, therefore we initially suspected other elements (e.g. magnet itself), but after resoldering all problems were gone.

I noticed that there is no USB port on the back of the module anymore. Probably this is due to card reader on extender and higher capacity 32GB card. Or is this only for this prototype and will be back for real module later on?

I have been using the ATP 64GB (same manufacturer as the original 4GB)

Best regards

Is it this: ATP 64GB MLC SDXC Card Industrial ?

I just would like to add that with the right 64GB card...both the Drumits work great!

Could you name any specific 64GB card?  ::)

To a point, major differences are the way the cymbals and Hi Hat are handled. The Hi Hat will only work with my Stealth 2Box HH Stand Conversion Kit or Zourman's box. Crashes are simple enough when set to PS or CyEdg type they will trigger Bow/Edge/Choke just like on the Roland module. But 3 zone Ride you would use the Bow/Bell input of the cymbal and set it to CyCup if you have a 2 jack Roland type Ride and you will get Bow/Bell ... no edge or choke.
Agreee. My point was about PDX pads not cymbals (and of course, not hi-hat), which I actually don't use except maybe as a splash sometimes :) For Yamaha experience is quite opposite: their cymbals are much better (OK, no 3 zones, but choke works) but their silicon pads are less sensitive and need adjustments.

Newbie here - I just heard about 2box 3 and 5 over the weekend. I spent hours on YouTube checking out these amazing products. I’m playing a set of Roland mesh heads with the expanded TD9 module.
Are they compatible with the Drumit 3?   Thank you.
They are even compatible with Drumit5  8)

according to the manual, the globalconfig.dcfg file is an "Index file, which is required for Mac operating systems" so I don't see how it's related to other settings...

I see that in manual, but as I wrote, the was just my experience. I tried thrice: once with new globalconfig version then with previous (noted all my settings), then back with new. First time all settings (triggers, volumes, outputs, etc.) changed to default plus drumkit list changed to DrumitThree. With old globalconfig file the settings changed back to my customized and drumkits  - to original Drumit Five 100 kits + my single kits.

If you copy just DrumItOS1.32.0.bin toDrumitFive module, the previous trigger settings will be preserved, the module will the new OS, but you'll also keep the original DrumitFive 100 kits. Therefore, to use newly downloaded sounds, you'll have to manually create new dkit files which will then appear as single kits. .

When you copy also the new globalconfig file, apart from other settings it will also bring the whole set of DrumitThree kits to you module.

At least such was my experience.

I'ts all right, I didn't mean you made a mistake, just wanted to remind myself what was that most important parameter for D5 cards :)
As for longer tests, I was too quick reporting myself when after couple of weeks realized stuttering of samples and I couldn't trust this card anymore.

I purchased 1 of the SanDisk Ultra  SDHC UHS-1 Card speed is up to 80 MB/s 533x the fist one i put into the card extender works perfectly.  So I purchased another 2 because they were $12.49 each. Seems to be a great card.

It's an access time not the speed which is most important.
Also use it for some time (at least a month) before reporting - they can work brilliantly at the beginning but degradation can start later.

Well at least I can tell you that I'm -not- working on a hint or a kit :-)
So yeah...

It must be module, then  8)
