If you can read german, here is a thread

Its kind of the same module with another outside. Look for user Drumstudio1, he has the same problem.

Best, Deve.
Ps. Myself, I dont know why, I am not involved since the original DI5.

Hi. What 2box are up to, I have no idea. Also, I have not been involved in DI3 or 5mk2, so no help there I'm afraid.
Basically they work as the first DI5, kits refer to sounds. They can be stored in any folder(s) you want on the sd card. If the sound is missing it shows the name, and a ? mark too on the KIT DRUM page. You have to find it on 2b dl web.
Best, Deve.
Hi Chris. Good job!
DI5 doesnt care about boot flags. Just the 1st partition entry at the end of the 1st sector.
However, sd cards have certain erase block boundaries which should be taken into account for best performance.
I never tested more than 32 GB back in the days, but now I have.
Cheers, Deve.
Hi. Slow forum here :-) Me too...
Anyway, I can only give advice on DI5 original (mk1).
The outputs 1-6 are the same, just that 1.2 can be vol controlled.
See unit-out page. Hp out has an extra driver for headphones, but can be used as direct out 7.8 and is then set to same level as 1-6.
So route mix to hp and/or 1.2 and check with var or fix level (with !).
Should givd the same sound quality.
Note thar 1-6 are unbal TS (R is same as S is gnd) and hp is TRS left-right-gnd.
Best, Deve.

I guess all that mil tech stuff is needed elsewhere. Fighting Russians or shooting down balloons...
Hi Ken! I watched the whole vid. Funny thing is, I met Skot in 2012? I think, in London, and we talked about just that. I even gave him a code example of my lossless comp idea. So lots of what he tells here I recognize very well. Mind you, he certainly had those things going before I met him, no offense.
We talked about collaboration, but then Nufzd was launched 2015? and we lost contact.
Then Fxpansion went to Roli, then BFD went to inMusic, so I dont know anymore...

Hi. Hihat pedal can be calibrated anytime. For other changes, go to UNIT-PREF page and set SAVE to on.
Then you can press button above SAVE?  and ? will disappear.

Hi. Original card was built in, I reckoned (correctly) that users buying their own could be difficult.
At the time (2009!) 4 GB was s lot. So USB code was for that.
After DI5 original, I was not involved anymore and the code wasnt fixed for bigger cards.
Indeed, an OS seeing a larger card thru USB will get mixed up. Card R/W errors, no hardw damage.
Best, Deve.
Hi Luke.
Nice indeed and well done, incl fine documentation!
This was posted earlier "General 2box Drumit 5 forum / New snare and kits for 2 Box"
Maybe follow up there too for better "exposure" :-)
Best, Deve.
Hi. An sd card extender cable (if used)  is asking for trouble, the data lines dont have return path / ground plane underneath as on a pcb, and they are often pretty long, so real bad for signal integrity.
So haphazard behaviour expected, may work, may not.
Best, Deve.

Hi Vincent. Could be sd card. I tested many long ago, not all are good.
As I am not involved with DI3, I dont know what they use. Its built in so no easy access.
Maybe do this sd card extension thing and try a few.

Yes, I have seen your TchPoum, really nice!

Best, Deve.

", I just couldn't get VST kits to play perfectly. I had no problems with 2box's own samples though."

As Deve-Loper, I still cant get that. Weird SD cards I have seen too, but why stock sounds (and sone of them pretty large) would play fine, but sdse ones not, doesnt make sense.
The dsnd format is pretty straight forward, so only thing I can think of is delay / silence before attack  baked in the samples.

But then it must be consistant for that /those vel layers. I have  an editor where I can see all details.
So  if you want to, wetransfer me a file. Pm me.
Best, Deve.
Hi. Try fiirst with the midi cable from di5 out to in, loopback.
Go to UNIT MIDI page and set local control off.
Then all trig msg are sent only via midi, so if that works, di5 is fine.
All other stuff you mention, I dont know.
Best, Deve.

Hi. Actually didn't know about them. I am more into jazz-rock.
My favourite, Tribal Tech.
But back to topic I guess, otherwise I get spanked by the moderator.
