Just wanted to hint about the latest edition of digitalDrummer Magazine (August 2018)

As usual you will find stories and reviews like the Roland TD-17 kit, Medeli's new YoDrum and the story continues about the mesh head comparisons with four more from Prism.

But the real reason to read it (in my opinion) are that you will find some interviews done by Allan Leibowitz(Editor) and his visit to STOCKHOLM / Sweden in June where we met 2box (at the owner Bengt’s home) and XLN Audio (creators of Addictive Drums) at their brand new office.

All that in the latest edition which is still free.

Setup guides and tips / Calibration guide for DI3 and VH-11
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:00:29 AM »
Hi all!

I recently made an instruction video for 2box on how to configure, optimize and tweak their new DrumIt Three module with Roland's hi-hat VH-11.

2box had the kindness to post the video it on their Facebook page.

There is also a written QuickStart guide available to read more about how to deal with hi-hats on DrumIt Three:

General 2Box Drumit 3 Forum / ATV aD-H14 & DrumIt Three (and Five...)
« on: July 03, 2018, 10:39:38 PM »

I have for some time been working to get the fantastic active optical hi-hat from ATV to work with 2box DrumIt Five and Three. (On a customer request - not the cheapest the solution...but if you want the best hh...)

For the DrumIt Five, a conversion module is always required but for DrumIt Three, which natively supports Roland hi-hats (ATV aD_H14 emulates VH-13) a conversion module is also required.

The reason for this is the active ATV hi-hat controller sends out a voltage range instead of a resistance range to handle the open/closed states. This fools the "Three" module completely, but with the Zourman Drums Conversion module for ATV hh - this can be solved.

Have a look:

The DDrum Legacy / Zourman Drums Hi-hat Conversion Module for ddrum 4 SE
« on: January 28, 2018, 08:46:43 PM »
Hi best friends!

About 2 months ago I got a my hands on an old ddrum 4 SE module. (Got it from a friend!)

As a spinoff when I got the ddrum 4SE module and also from a couple of requests from customers asking - Can't you develop a hi-hat conversion for Roland hi-hats and the ddrum 4se?

So well...I thought, no problem I can do this and I started the project - however - it was not so easy as I thought and it took me like 100 hours to complete. I am not 100% ready yet but I think it is working ok already - some fine tuning which still remains.

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Roland 3 Zone Conversion Module for 2box

Hi all!

What do you think about this?

I did finally finish a conversion module for using Roland CY-13R and CY-15R rides together with the 2box DrumIt Five module.

Have a nice weekend!

After many hours of work on recording, editing and repackaging - I have together with Jouni at Big Jambo Studios created a pack of samples of a legendary snare for 2box.

Have a look:

e-drum DIY / modifications / 2boxers: What do You think about this?
« on: October 08, 2017, 01:03:10 PM »
Hi all!

I have for some time been fiddling around to find a solution which makes my Roland CY-15R (3 Zones) to work with my 2box module. (I thought this would be nice to solve the last of the 2box Drumit five secrets)

The goal has been to only use passive electronics in my solution. The trick to make it possible is to damp the bow piezo and leave the bell signal untouched and through this create a higher signal for the bell. A Roland cymbal has the piezo on the bow...and a 2box cymbal have the piezo in the bell.

So a bell hit on 2box cymbal will because of the higher amplitude create a bell sound. On Roland Cy-15R it is the opposite. So a bell hit will never be higher than a bow there have been some challenges to deal with...

I have still some other challenges (especially with the choke) but I thought about posting a video clip what I have been achiving so far for the 2box forums to see what you all think!

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Make your 2box module ready for the road!
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:31:02 PM »

I needed to protect my 2box module in a better way when on the road…so just for fun I bought a small red case at Bauhaus and then used a foam cutter to make room for the 2box module and also a Zourman hi-hat conversion module for Roland VH-11. I think the result got quite nice. I will add space for the PSU and the 2box holder also)

Hi All!

A drummer friend Christian asked if he could borrow and use my setup on a gig...hard to say no...I also became sound and light engineer on this gig.

Christian had never tried any e-kit before but the venue was quite small and limited time for sound check etc. He did rehearsal with this kit one time.

As we had some time to prepair the kit in advance the following process occurred:

What we did before the gig:
I invited my drummer friend to pick his kit in AD2 using my notebook and select drums from all ADpaks. When he was ready...the whole kit was transferred to 2box module using SDSE. It takes about 30 minutes on a i7 based system. If You are a AD2 could look on his kit on this link:


(6 audio channels recorded from 2box, a small Sonor Safari kit with Remo Silent Stroke, Roland RT-10S triggers, Roland CY-cymbals, VH-11 and Zourman Hihat conversion module for 2box.

My friend got very impressed and are thinking of getting his own system...

Christians defined kit in AD2:
Kick: 26x14" Ludwig Blue Oyster
Snare: 14x6,5" Sonor Phonic
Hihat: 15" Zildjian New Beat
Tom 1: 12x8" Ludwig Classic Maple
Tom 2: 13x9" Ludwig Classic Maple
Tom 3: 16x16" Ludwig Classic Maple
Tom 4: 18x16" Ludwig Classic Maple
CYM 1: Crash 17", Zildjian Hybrid
CYM 2: Crash 18", Zildjian K Custom Dark
CYM 3: Crash 20", Zildjian K Crash Ride
CYM 4: China 20", Zildjian Low
Ride 1: 24", Zildjian A Medium
Flexi 1: Cowb-LP Rock

What do you think about this new hi-hat tool for 2Box and Roland FD-8 and VH-11?

Best Regards


In this fantastic and free e-drum magazine you will find some statements from Bengt, CEO at 2Box, a complete story about how the factory sounds in 2Box were recorded in the Swedish Big Jambo Studios...a wet dream for most drummers and finally you will find an article about our "President" Mr Jman and his monster kit!

DrumIt 5 Hardware / A question for you ones that have done hihat mod!
« on: November 28, 2015, 08:11:53 PM »
Hi all!

I have a question to you all that have done the HH mod from Jman or similar implementations and is using a Roland e-cymbal like VH-11, VH-12, CY-8 as the hihat pad.

Studying the original 2Box hihat...when hitting the edge default on (at least on my gear) the edge switch is quite hard getting to trigger...and the piezo sensor will most often trigger instead when hitting the edge. (It is of course a mix of signals when hitting the edge but mostly piezo hits will be number 4 in 2Box)

Using a Roland e-cymbal gear will by default give you an easier way to trigger the edge switch...

To the question...has anybody experienced false triggering or other strange behaviors when using HH mod with a Roland HH e-pad when playing with the edge switch? Or does it work just as good (or bad) as the 2Box implementation?

Best regards

DrumIt 5 Hardware / The 2Box e-cymbal with 3 zones...
« on: September 15, 2015, 07:15:28 PM »
I am guessing that this topic have been covered many time before...but I did not find any good topic when searching the forum.

The 2Box cymbal have 3 zones + the is this really working? I think I red that you Jman offers 3 Zone stealth cymbals...

How are they built ... 2 switches + piezo...or ....?

Best regards
