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.

Freaky, this post has been eaten!

Ok, so the gist of what this post used to say is: BUYERS AND SELLERS BEWARE! - there are some dodgy mofos out there who want nice music gear and money for free. Please always be careful when giving out personal details etc.

Any bad stuff happens here and we'll happily do what we can to make sure the relevant authorities are told about bad people.

Nice find Theo.

Edit: just got a reply from Bengt at 2box:

"I think the first kits will end up at the distributor next week and then of course it’s a matter of days."

Hold on in there, not long now :)

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.

Hi there

This place is becoming a useful resource for people who are looking for information, advice, sort out technical problems, or just let off steam about the 2box drumit 5 - we've got some great regular posters who really know what they're talking about (you know who you are :))

I've personally been anticipating the release of the Drumit 5 for a very long time - I've had my DDrum 4 SE kit for something like 12 years and while I love it to death still, the tiny 8mb of RAM is really showing its age, and the heavily compressed sounds could really do with the 24-bit treatment.

Most of my music output these days is done in my small studio, so I am really enthusiastic about the specifications 2box are ramming inside the Drumit 5 for drummers and producers.
