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)
USB/internal Memory"

Setup guides and tips / Record Audio and video with your iphone or ipad
« on: August 12, 2019, 09:40:19 AM »
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.

Setup guides and tips / Cheapest way to record your 2box
« on: August 12, 2019, 09:12:27 AM »
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)

I remember 8 years ago when I got my first drumit 5 module, I had a beautiful Roland set with the pd-x pads and was so dissapointed that it was not possible to use them with the module, the rim-head separation wasn't there and ended up selling the roland pads and bought the 2box pads.

Now, 8 years after I just cannot say how satisfied I am with the drumit 3 and its compatibility with the roland pd-108, 128 series which have a much hotter rim hahaha, the LXTR is just magic and now I have clean separation between head and rim, trigger a loop on the rim and don't be afraid to trigger a spock cymbal assigned to the head. Works on the snare and toms, and even if you can't get it right on the toms it doesn't matter since you are going to split the input to use another cymbal or pad.

Huge selling point for 2box, I just wish they were more aggressive in the market, specially in the US, nobody knows them there...

I just discovered this guys: Gear Drum, they are from Italy and make triggers for pads and cymbals, they look nice, specially those triggered low volume cymbals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbrPjZ9f79Y

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Drumit 3 Subsection needed?
« on: March 17, 2018, 09:08:30 AM »
After 2 weeks of owning the module I was wondering if the admin can add a drumit 3 Subsection to the forum?
That way we can keep both modules discussions separated.

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Baffled by 2box drumit 3 Midi structure
« on: March 16, 2018, 11:28:47 AM »
So, I'm recording some midi from my drumit 3 into logic but when I see the notes in Logic they are completely different from the notes set in the module! For instance, the kick, which is set to C2 in the module, is being recorded as C1!! The Snare is F2 in the module but it show E2 in logic!
I didnt transpose anything in logic.
Also, dragging a midi groove from SD3 to trigger the internal sounds of the module trigger the wrong notes of course....
It's just baffling....

e-drum DIY / modifications / Drumit 3 SD Card Mod
« on: March 08, 2018, 01:12:57 PM »
I just opened my drumit 3 module following the same method as for the drumit 5, all was going good until I see the board is attached now to the top lid, and, bad news, the display seems to be glued to the plate! So if you lift the board it will damage the display!

You will see the SD Card is the same as the one in the drumit5.

So it seems this time 2box wont allow the sd card mod, we're screwed...

As expensive as the drum-tec, but with better cymbals than roland, maybe a good pairing with the upcomig drumit 3?
