I still have plenty of stock on the Stealth 2Box 32GB mod kits. Every card and extender is tested and verified plug n play ready. You just do the simple mod, plug in and go. These have the latest OS, and all the newest kits and sounds, which amounts to about 3GB more sounds already than you can fit on the stock module.... with lots of gigabytes of open card space for adding more.
Now .... Additionally, if you want, I will add the new eNerd kits to the card as detailed here: I have also added all the extra new kits sounds from the Drumit Three to the Drumit Five! ..... And Vice Versa ..... All the 2Box sounds that are available on both modules plus the net are on the card.
That gives the card a total of about 16GB of kits and sounds just to start on either module. The new kits reside on the card in alphabetical order after the 100 original 2box kits on the module.
Just send me a PM or email if interested, let me know if you are in the US, or where you are located. J

This is a great partnership if you ask me, and Mario is indeed a great guy.

One thing I would like to know is, I had heard that the goal was to use this not only with their TrapKat but also with their mallet controllers. If this is accurate information (it wasn't from the company,) then the module would have a different sample architecture so that more sounds could be triggered per patch; you won't get several octaves of pitched notes from a standard DI3 kit. I'd love to know if this is the case or if it's misinformation; Kurzweil had discontinued the module they were previously selling for all their controllers, so it has me wondering.

I'm also curious what sounds he's producing for it, how deeply-sampled they are, etc. Not a lot of info on this yet though.
Contact Mario at Alternative Mode for more specifics.
Thanks for fixing it Tom .... I kind of like the standard colors for a change .... LOL
Not sure what all is new either. But there is an extra splash screen on startup. At least I didn't notice it previously. I have multiple Drumit.dkit files/configurations. The extra splash screen shows which is loading. In my case it is the one I was using last as preference not the default Drumit.dkit.
I've received several messages saying the forum is down. The separate Login page is not working, but if you login from the Home page top right Login area You can read and post. If you are NOT logged in you cannot read and post.

Thanks again Steve. Can you remember how much of the 4 Gb is left on the DI3 module as new?
3.67GB of space is used or the 3.83GB usable space. That is 158MB of extra space. So you basically need to take files off of the original card if you are going to add much to it.

Unfortunately not to me. I am only able to get perfect results on my 10 inch tom with the new xtalk function, 12 and 14 inch head frequently triggers the rim. I checked the manual to try different settings (LP/HP). Back to 1.32.4 gives no problems LXTR set vHigh.
Diamond drums with center piezo moved to the side (still mounted on the plastic disc) using drumtec design 2-ply mesh.
Did you also try this?:
X-ADJ: Boosts the Trigger preference for the current sensor (Head/Rim) if X-TLK sound is triggered on
I stopped by the KAT booth at NAMM and talked a bit with Mario (great guy I've known for years). He set me up on the DrumKat XL ... pretty nice to play. I noticed right away the sounds were Very Good ... very acoustic sounding .... I didn't realize til later when Alan Leibowitz pointed it out that the new KAT sound module on display is actually a Drumit 3 rebranded .... a very good match up really for Alternative Mode... With the Open Sound Source architecture Mario can built and load all his own samples/instruments into it. Apparently what he is doing. And the module is setup already ..... for example ... plug in the new TrapKat XL and all the pads are assigned, trigger parameters are set .... Plug n Play.

I have the jman conversion system with vh11 that works fantastic im still running the previous OS will I run in to problems  (new calibration) because it works fine now.   but I am thinking about a 2box trigit on ebay to have a acoustic snare conversion and for what I read in the new manual this could be good idee to have the new OS.


I did the OS update as stated above and tested with my 2Box HH stand conversion kit. It worked for both the D3 and D5 modules with no problem.
This prolly applies to very few users .... but I did the OS update yesterday on my D3 and D5 modules. On the D3 I did the HH calibration and that went fine, showing DONE. But when I would move the pedal NOTHING happened .... So, just as a reminder: Because the New OS remembers your previous HH settings: I had been using my Aux HH on the D3 as a Fixed Hat with a certain degree of openness .... I had to go to where I had set it as Fixed and change that .... then everything worked as expected .... That stumped me for a little while ;D

I think the new Xtalk settings for Head/Rim articulations are better. I haven't done a lot of experimenting with it yet, but initially it seems to work better than the previous LXTR Xtalk settings.

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?
The second cymbal inputs only work in conjunction with the first ... IE: for 3 zone type cymbals like a Roland Cy-15R for example. You can use a standard Insert splitter like the Hosa YPP-117 to split the Tom inputs though.
The Strike has a 200MB per kit size limit .... some 2Box Rides by themselves are close to that .... so not sure how high your expectations are ....
