General 2box Drumit 5 forum / 3 Zone snare with BT-1
April 11, 2022, 07:04:46 AM
So if I want to use a BT-1 for x-sticks with a dual zone mesh snare I lose the rimshot sound? Because the manual says when you assign a sound to the perc part you will trigger this sound, so if I assign a crosstick on another input will I lose the rimshot sound? I'm confused after all this years... also which midi note is assigned to this x-stick? I seem to remember that the 2box doesn't send 37 for xstick but only 38 for center and 40 for rimshots. The BT-1 will be splitted with a tom input.

There won't be a next gen 2box module, at least not from 2box directly... After a couple of years since this topic was created, nothing happened, you can kill it now :(

It seems 2box has been busy preparing and collaborating with music store to release a rebranded drumit 3 as brain of the  ,,Fame Hybrid Pro" drumset. At 1199€, this is a serious contender for their own speedlight kit. Available from 5th of February.

,,The Fame Hybrid Pro E-Drum Set is a professional E-Drum Kit with high-end module in the exclusive Simon Phillips and Marco Minnemann Edition.

With 12 separate trigger channels, 4 direct outputs and a song player, the Hybrid Pro module is built for professional drummers - and at an absolute sensational price!

There are 4 GB of flash memory available, which can be filled with sounds or WAV samples as desired. From the factory, the module contains over 400 exclusive multi-layer sounds, consisting of 12,500 individual samples recorded especially for MUSIC STORE professional by Simon Phillips and Marco Minnemann.

The open sound architecture allows for quick sorting and creation of kits, sounds and custom backing tracks with the help of a software editor. There are 100 kit slots in the Hybrid Pro, 40 of which are already populated with our own sounds. Each kit can be assigned a click and a song - perfect for live use.

All pads of the Fame Hybrid Pro E-Drum Set are equipped with mesh heads, snare and kick pad are 12", the toms 10". In addition to the three cymbal pads with 3-zone ride, there is a real hi-hat mounted on a Fame HH-9000 stand. The classic Fame FP-9001 single pedal is also included.

Hyperactive, the german distributor for 2box, will be the european distributor for the EF Note drum, good luck with that... kit costs 2999€
In memory of the one and only Jman...
I'm selling one of his ISM-6 triggers for a 13" or 14" snare, the trigger is new and still bubble wrapped, includes clear rim guard. it will work perfectly with the 2box module and mimic pro. I have the installation instructions and video as well. Selling it for 120€ incl. shipping to Germany or 130€ including shipping to the EU.

Ok, enough with the mystery, got my drumit 5 MK2 module today and just setting it up, here are my first impressions:

  • the box is similar to the drumit 3
[li]the power adapter is a generic one
a plastic mounting plate is included
the quick start guide is similar to the drumit 3, no full manual included
The SD Card is nicely fitted in the card slot, it doesn't rag a bit, it is spring loaded but you'll need long fingernails or a plastic thing to get it out because it doesn't come out so easily when pushing it.
I took it out and first surprise: is a micro sd card in a generic sd card adapter! it has a plastic seal so I can't see which micro sd card it is.
as advertised is a 32GB card
it has 12.1 GB data with 17,4GB free
it comes with OS 1.36.1 installed
there are 75 kits, from 1 to 24 are completely new kits with new and old instruments, these sound really really nice!

I did the sd card test with HD tune, first test showed an access time of .87 ms

that's it for now….

Just released, Steven Slate Audio 5.5, easier midi learn, 13 new "Designer" Kits, free upgrade for SSD5 users.
Took delivery of my new toy today: the 2box speedlight kit. It comes in 2 boxes, one with the pads and one with the rack and module. I was more curious about the hihat and ride, the hihat is one zone and the ride is 3 zone and triggers beautifully. The texture of the cymbals is similar to the atv cymbals. The toms and snare are tiny and have a single ply head, they trigger perfectly out of the box. The module came with os 1.34.1.
The rack is pretty lightweight, the mounts for the toms and snare are the same mounts as for the original drumit 5 pads, they are hex rods, which is a minus since you’ll need a yamaha or pearl hex mounts if you want to change them.
The included hihat stand is quite flimsy, you cannot expect more for this price. The hihat pad sits atop a plastic tray with foam on it. The actual controller is a plastic movable part attached to the pad itself. It triggers ok and needs more fine tuning so you get clean chicks and splashes. I’d say replacing the hihat stand is a must. The kick pad is the same texture as the cymbals, soft.

Since this is basically a drumit 3, there is only one small mounting guide for the rack, no additional instructions included. The hihat pad came without the clutch attached so you have to do it yourself.

I made a video of the unboxing and hope to put in on tutube tomorrow.
Continuing with the topic of how to play rimshots and crossticks separately or how to get a 3 zone snare with a 2 zone pad, here is one stock snare with a velocity switch, try it and let me know if it works with your 2 zone pad, you should get a crosstick sound at lower velocities and a rimshot sound at higher velocities.!Apbbfhss1Va_gd5cw0kxLqqFOsH7Fg?e=gLYtcm
General 2box Drumit 5 forum / New OS 1.36.1 available!
February 10, 2020, 01:49:47 PM
No idea what if fixes but it's available now:
I just got word from trumslagaren, they have the drumit5 mk2 in stock now, limited quantities, first come first served ;-)

OS 1.34.10 Jan 10 2020
This OS is compatible with DrumIt5 and DrumIt Three.
* If a Hihat Calibration  is performed the new calibration can now be saved in the UNIT file (Press UNIT-SAVE?).
* Fixed the issue with hihat opening value on kit change - now the opening value remains the same as stored in a KIT. (Finally!!!!)
* Added auto-set of decay value to "INF" in case a loop sound is selected for a channel.
* Cymbal choke is now active when a "HOLD" value is activated.
* A Crosstalk ( XTLK ) feature is added for Tom and Snare Channels to minimize crosstalk between Head and Rim.

It will allow importing 100 multilayered samples (wav). Interesting, even if the limit is 4GB for user samples it would be enough for a couple of SD3 Kits.

"User Sample Import
100 Wave or 100 Multi layerd full instruments (Head/Rim/X-Stick - Bell/Bow/Edge)
Length: 320 Mono, 160 Stereo
File Format: WAV (44.1 kHz, 16/24 bit)

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / New 2Box Speed Light Kit
December 04, 2019, 02:42:47 PM
2box just announced their own kit with a drumit 3 module and their own pads.
You want to do some covers for youtube but your audio is out of sync and aligning it with a software is tedious and expensive? well, if you have an iphone or ipad you can record quickly directly audio and video in the youtube app using the following stuff:

1- USB Audio interface compatible with ipad (and iphone): I use the roland Rubix22, it's around 60 bucks used or 100 new. There is also the Steinberg UR22 MK2 for roughly the same price. There are cheaper ones but the 2 above have MIDI IN/OUT Ports, which is useful if you want to record MIDI as well. Also note these have only 2 Inputs, so you only be able to record your 2box and whatever you have plugged in your aux in, for instance your phone or mp3 player if you record with an ipad. If you want to record your voice as well then you'll need an interface with 4 inputs and a microphone.

2. Apple Camera Kit USB kit, this goes between your ipad/phone and the audio interface

3. 5V Power adapter with mini usb cable for the audio interface, since the ipad/iphone wont provide enough power to the Audio interface, I use the same iphone charger with a mini usb cable and it works perfectly.

With this you'll be able to record audio and video with decent quality, the downside is that the youtube app won't allow you to add anything like text or other things, you will only be able to trim the video and that's it. However If you want to edit the video afterwards to add text or explanations you can use the built in app "clips" and export the video to imovie and edit it there.

So that's it, record quickly and decently without a computer.

So you want to record your 2box but you're broke and can't afford an RME Babyface audio interface? Don't worry, you can get this cable for 15 bucks and plug the right and left to your 1-2 outs and the usb to your computer, install free asio drivers and the free software audacity, hit record and there you go, you'd found the cheapest way to record your playing without spending more than you have already (providing you have a computer already)
