I was only kidding - some of my best friends use Macs - and anyway, Vista doesn't count (it's in the same slop bucket as Windows ME :))

Hi, welcome on board Thackleberry ...I know what you mean about waiting for the second batch, but if no-one tries the first then 2box might not get off the ground  :o

Besides, the operating system will be upgradeable via USB - if you look at synths like the Virus TI line (which is on OS3 now) that has meant big on-going functionality boosts (and bug fixes).

Hellfire Electronic Drum Systems is a great resource for eDrum DIYers, with detailed walk-throughs and templates for creating your own robust and responsive electronic drums and cymbals.

The EXC-1 Cymbal Module is currently available in their custom diy edrum store.

Don't forget to check out Phil's Hellfire Drums Podcast

Just wanted to say hello to all.

The new forum looks great! Very 2box-ee 8)

Greetings Hellfire, glad you like it - was worried it was a bit too orange - I'll try and tone it down if there are too many complaints :)

The ddrum 4 uses 16-bit samples (with a 4:1 compression  I think) but the drumit 5 uses 24-bit badboys :)

There's a good article here ...but you might want to copy and paste the text into Notepad - light-blue text on a white background doesn't make for easy reading :)

...and no Guitar-Player can torture your ears.

Hahahaha yeah. Try playing with a DJ too - those cuts and scratches HURT :D

p.s. great breakdown puttenvr, I learnt a lot from that.

those xponaut people really need to do something about the spam links infesting that article!

Edit: I sent them a poke and it looks like they've fixed it - good work xponaut :-) I'll see if I can get some more information out of them about the DrumIt software.

Fair enough :). I reckon Bengt is buying himself 2 weeks' time with the comment as there are obviously a lot of variables involved in getting products into shops. By my reckoning we're looking at 29 July at the earliest.

Hi Theo

You'll need to extract the .mid files from the zip folder. Then grab the ddrum4Tool.exe (for Windows) from above.

You'll need to tell the Tool which soundcard to use by clicking on the Setup menu and selecting your soundcard in the dropdown (doesn't need to be a pro card for checking out the sounds - I just tried it out on my PC at work :) ).

You don't have to hook up the DDrum via midi to audition the sounds.

Load up one or more sample from where you extracted the files, and all you have to do then is highlight the loaded sample, and click "listen". Let your ears do the rest :)

Edit: if you're looking to trigger the sounds from the TD 8 on a PC (ie without the DDrum brain) it might be quite a long and tiring job - not sure if anyone has any better ideas, but the only way I can think of is to audition each sample through ddrum4tool.exe and "record what you hear" if your soundcard supports it. To be honest, much as I love the DDrum sounds, it's probably noit worth the effort seeing as there are so many free drum hit sounds around on the web. Hope that helps.
