Other e-drum systems / Re: Best e-drums in 2022???

An ATV Ad5 is a good option, 4ms latency, nice sounds, compatible with many brands of pads, (not the case with efnote which has a proprietary hihat) and plays nice.

Yeah I was cautious about recommending the Gewa, but in the UK drum show recently, Luke Hesketh who had previous reviewed the G9 and outlined the major flaws with it, felt that they had ironed them out.

I just had a look at their G9 facebook group, all woes and worries there, no thanks, they fooled me once, never again...

Forget gewa, I had the G9 and spent countless hours trying to get the triggering right, never got it, sold it, Gewa told me they were working on an update, the update came, never fixed the issues. They just tell you what you want to hear...

Mimic Pro is the best right now, pair it with any pad, I'm currently using a mix and match kit with efnote 14" snare and 20" ride, yamaha TCS 10" pad, Roland VAD 12" Tom, ATV 13" floor tom and a 14" tama starclassic floor tom with a triggera intrigg, ATV 14" hats, lemon splash and cymbal and 2 16" roland 16" pads. I've learned to not marry to a brand, I even have an edrumin to connect another 4 pads. 

What's missing on the mimic are percussion sounds and some MIDI stuff like local control and midi thru. Otherwise is simply the best out there.

I found a hidden menu in 1.40 OS (that doesn't exist on 1.36.30)

Accessed by going to KIT - ENV page, select UNIT, hold MORE + KIT

ENV2 page is displayed with a single parameter to adjust per trigger called TRIGP (options are RIM and CROSS) it's unclear what the effect this has from my testing so far.  :-\

Since it's on the kit page and not on the unit page I guess this is not related to assigning a trigger type or input but to assign a sound to a pad.

Oh I get it now, since the BT-1 is connected to another channel I won't lose the rimshot sound. I was mixing assigning sounds with drum channels... It is confusing since drum-tec still announces the 2box has 15 trigger inputs but doesn't say there are actually 10 and that you will lose the rims on the toms/snare when you use splitters to add 5 additional pads/cymbals to the perc channels...

So with the unofficial 1.40 OS from the fame hybrid module there  hasn't been any updates to the midi front? how about that new ENV2 page someone discovered that had "TRIGP"}"Rim/Cross"?

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / 3 Zone snare with BT-1
« on: April 11, 2022, 07:04:46 AM »
So if I want to use a BT-1 for x-sticks with a dual zone mesh snare I lose the rimshot sound? Because the manual says when you assign a sound to the perc part you will trigger this sound, so if I assign a crosstick on another input will I lose the rimshot sound? I'm confused after all this years... also which midi note is assigned to this x-stick? I seem to remember that the 2box doesn't send 37 for xstick but only 38 for center and 40 for rimshots. The BT-1 will be splitted with a tom input.

Why don't you get an edrumin4 and connect the atv hihat to it and send the midi to the 2box? the edrumin has better hihat control and works perfectly for me.

Well not exactly as hobby but on his own free time but still as a Slate Audio employee, it seems he has no budget for developing software updates for the mimic pro, which leads me to think why is Slate doing anyway since SSD5.5 hasn't been updated in years either and their midi maps got stuck on the td-30, no support for TD-50 digital pads, so it seems pearl just takes a cut for each mimic sold but isn't interested in releasing new sounds or anything while Slate has no interest/budget either and are mainly concerned with selling raven consoles and monthly paid software, no love for the 5 edrummers (they think) out there...

Well the UK drum show has finished and there were no announcements from pearl regarding an update for the mimic pro so back to square one on that front... someone mentioned on the vdrums forum that this is now a side project from the slate developer and that he is working on an update but is not being paid for he's doing it more as a hobby and out of good will rather than as a work obligation could take a long time if ever before an update is released... kinda like 2box, which seems to be a hobby more than a real business...

With the exception of the fantastic playability with the digital pads and cymbal, you'd have been better off with an edrumin10 or 2.

But if the digital pad is the attraction (and I can understand why) maybe a TD27? Just seems like a lot of money for, like you say, a controller for SD3

What you're using now? a mimic pro no? I heard there is some rumours of pearl releasing something new for the mimic at the next UK drum show in April, will you be attending?

I sold the td-50X and got now 2 edrumins... 1 10 and 1 4, however if pearl comes up next week with something interesting I may consider a mimic...

The only reason I don’t get a TD-27 instead is the really stupid Db-25 snake…
I wish there was a new td-12… TD-35 maybe…

Open the module and clean the contact button with alcohol

I don't think manually created kits will make any difference, it's been established that the 2box hardware is not capable of handling busy patterns, it's ideal for a beginner learning 4/4 AC/DC songs but once you want to go David Weckl things fall apart...

I've sent my SD3 samples created with SDSE to many experts around here, even to Rik, and they were all baffled since there is nothing wrong with these...

I tried to create a full kit from the Fields of Rock SD3 expansion manually in my mac and studio one but I saw that it would take me a lot of time to do it so I just drop the idea, but again, I don't think SDSE is the problem either.

Even karbonfaifa has admitted now that he has glitches, microglitches but he noticed them so....

Anders is happy with AD2, so he won't go and buy SD3 only to confirm what I've discovered almost 2 years ago with the speedlight kit....

I moved on from 2box, to a Roland TD-50X with digital Pads, triggering SD3 all the time, the most expensive controller I've owned.....
