Also, for instruments/sounds you've already created you can add the Tuning (Up) feature with DSound Tuner that is included in Drumit Manager which is also a Lustar product. So, you can setup SDSE for Up tuning before you create your sounds or you can change the tuning feature on sounds you already made with Drumit Manager.

Hi! I've just got a Drumit 3 and I could see that the sounds that are included can be tuned either down as up. But with the sounds I've created with SDSE I can only change the pitch down, it's not possible to go higher.

Anyone knows why? Is it possible to do something about it? Thanks! :rock:
There is a setting when you build the sounds to make it possible to tune up. Read the manual, info .... or contact Lustar at his site.

Under Kit Save you have a Favo choice. Whatever kit you are currently on will become the Start up kit if you choose that as Favo. Oh, and OS 1.32.4 is available now as you may already know.

Jman - you almost made me worried...luckely on page states "balanced"...:-)

Never mind! -The real challenge for the OP is to create a good mix...and find the right input settings for the Q8. (Besides playing…). The Behringers is not known for providing good output signal...Not at least on my XR12 three other Mackie mixers gives better signal as default.

Best Regards

Sorry about that .... I have several Behringer Mixer Manuals on my PC, including the XENYX 802 and the XENYX Q802USB. I realized later I had the non USB manual open. I was surprised though that the two are different as far as Balanced and Unbalanced Main Outs!
The Zoom Q8 can be a little tricky. I've been using one for years. As a matter of fact I had an intermittent problem where I would get all my levels set then do a video .... 9 out of 10 times everything was fine, but 1 out of 10 recordings would have one channel cut out intermittently. It was a pain to isolate the problem. I had changed settings, changed XLR cables, recorded with a hotter signal from the Mixer and lower input settings on the Q8 ..... Lower settings from the Mixer, higher settings at the Q8. -20db ON, -20db OFF, etc. etc. Finally just today it happened. and I took the camera over and set it next to me .... turned an MP3 on ...... and started pushing on the XLR plugs .... it started happening while I could see it .... push the cable around, wiggle it ..... connected to the 1 Mic input and it would happen. I took the XLR plug apart, saw nothing unusual, but separated the wires to be sure nothing was shorting, used electical cleaner spray on the prongs ..... put everything back together and tested ..... problem solved .... but that has been plaguing me for a year! And it really sucks to get a video take down that you are satisfied with only to find out the audio is screwed up!

Anyway, when the OP does get to recording I recommend you always set your levels, do a quick recording and check it. That is so important. It will tell you how your levels are. It might sound perfect from your headphones at the Mixer and not what you expect at the camera.

The tele outputs on that mixer is balanced. (TRS)

Who said something about recording through the mixer...we are talking about replaying OPs drumsless tracks From the PC via USB to the mixer which can act as a sound card...then the whole thing gets recorded on the Zoom Q8.

Anders /
From the manual:
Main Outputs
Type                             Â¼â€ TRS connector   unbalanced

EDIT, my mistake, the 802USB model does have 1/4" TRS BALANCED Main Outs .... the regular 802 has the Unbalanced.

So the OP can use a simple 1/4" TRS audio cable for hooking up to the Zoom Q8 from the Mixer. One Tip, at least with my mixer, (not a Behringer, but my previous mixer was a Behringer and this applied to it too) in the Zoom Q8 menu there are a couple settings under the Audio category you will want to do. Choose Stereo for you mic inputs 1 - 2. and under Pad setting you will probably want to choose -20db ... at least that is what I do with my mixer, as the signal is pretty hot for the Q8.... without choosing the -20db setting I have to set my Main Outs VERY low from the mixer, and in turn my Headphones end up with too low of a volume even when maxed on the headphone gain control. You can try it though with the -20db setting ON, and OFF to check the signal into the Zoom Q8.

The Q802USB have balanced outputs (TRS Tele) which can you can connect to your Zoom Q8 using these kind of cables:
(You need two)

Anders /
He was asking about recording into the Zoom Q8, not into the computer. I do it myself. Not sure if you meant Outputs on this or Inputs. Like I said the Zoom can accept 1/4" TS/TRS cables or XLR cables. The Outputs of the mixer are Line type 1/4" and they are unbalanced ..... So, yes he could get 1/4" to XLR cables, but since the Q8 accepts either XLR, TS, or TRS .... he can just use TRS cables or TS .... might as well use TRS I suppose since the Zoom Q8 has balanced inputs .... but ..... The reason I mentioned Reading the manual is there are quite a few settings to be made in the Q8. Resolution of Audio/Video, whether Stereo or Mono, etc. etc .... also including a setting to reduce the db of the inputs. I record every week into the Zoom Q8 ....

The Microphone inputs of the Zoom Q8 accept either XLR or 1/4" TS cables. I think your mixer has 1/4" TS outputs so you can use 1/4" TS cables for connecting. You will need to read the Zoom Q8 Manual which will explain all the audio/video options and settings, no way around that. Reading the manual instructions is very important.

Hey I used to own a DI5 but sold it to go over to a TD30, but now I'm back to thinking I want to trigger a new DI5 Mk2 and AD2 or SD3.

I will only have one, two or three kits max in the DI5 module, so I assume plenty of room on a 32gb card right?
I am 50 so not brilliant with the tech, so tell me someone, genuinely, just how easy is it to extract from AD2 say using SDSE and make a whole new sound module? I think I sold last time to avoid all the techno stuff which I found difficult.

I use Mac but if I have to I have access to PC.

Many thanks for your help.
I've used SDSE for building my own sounds for the 2Box modules for many years. Most of my sounds I currently use are new sounds built with SDSE. You don't have to be experienced though to use SDSE. The whole point for Lustar was to simplify the process. So it is all a matter of a few clicks to build a whole Kit of new instruments from the VST software with SDSE. Then you already have the instrument files and the pre-built Kit file to drop onto the Drumit module. Not difficult at all. No Mac version, you will need to use a PC.  J

But Roland does it via 2 sensors, so maybe that's what they patented? (Seem like an odd thing to be able to patent)   Ddrum did it with ONE sensor, by analyzing the waveform shape. Surely 2Box could do ThAT?

NO, Roland posititional sensing works with one sensor too. Ddrum came out with it many years ago and apparently Roland had no claim against it ... (Ddrum might have actually come out first, can't remember) But unfortunately 2Box is a dif. company than Ddrum so can't use their claims AFAIK. Roland positional sensing patent runs out before too long AFAIR ..... so don't be surprised to see more positional sensing happening in the not so distant future.

I haven't seen any reports about problems with the VST sounds built for the D3 from SDSE, I think yours is the 1st. I suggest contacting Lustar, he would prolly be interested and might be able to help.

Tech support for triggering problems without actually being at the kit is already difficult. If you do not supply technical details it is Impossible. I would suggest listing all the trigger parameters of your snare. Pad type, Gain, Threshold, Xtalk settings, Mask time etc. to start with.

On the velocity switching Cross-Stick, here is a thread, but personally I prefer to assign a Cross-Stick to a separate pad or Rim of a tom:,3624.msg26603.html#msg26603

You cannot gain more pads/inputs by using MIDI into the 2Box modules. It has been discussed many times over the last 9 or 10 years.
