General 2box Drumit 5 forum / New 2Box in the Musikmesse?
« on: March 29, 2013, 07:37:59 AM »
The Musikmesse starts on the 10th of April, do you guys think there will be some new stuff from 2box for us? I can see new hardware coming and finally the option to get a bigger SD card.... the big T over here in Europe is listing the 2box kit as 'on request' which for me is a good sign ;D

I was there last year and it was impressive, too many things to see, sadly this year I can't make it but eagerly expecting for some 2box surprises this year!

Hi folks,

Everything sold 8) Thanks for watching :animal:

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / No more 2Box for Oz....
« on: January 13, 2012, 10:25:04 PM »
I've just read in another forum (starts with V) that the Oz distributor is no longer importing 2boxes :-\
I don't know if it was for low sales or whatever but this is indeed bad news I reckon.
So if you are already the proud owner of a 2box consider yourself lucky and for all who didn't order theirs while it was available well, the only option now is to import it directly from Europe or wait for a new distributor to appear.
And with the distributor out of the picture, I don't know who is going to provide support.... I can imagine the following email:
disgruntled 2boxer: "Hey, my kick is broken or something. I'm in Australia"
2box: I'm sorry to hear that, but you will have to send the kick to your nearest distributor for repair, which in your case is...ehm, let me see New Zealand. :P

DrumIt 3 and DrumIt 5 Software - PC / Mac / SD card on mac...
« on: May 28, 2011, 07:35:29 AM »
So, here I am trying to replace the stock 4gb sd card with a genuine transcend class 10 32 gb. I'm using a mac and virtual windows 7 64 bits running on parallels. Some weird stuff happening:

- I didn't format the sdcard the first time I plugged it in to my mac to copy the contents of the stock sdcard
- I just copied everything before I put in the module, everything was fine
- This morning, when trying to transfer some dsnd's from my mac to the module I get the following error: " The         contents of the file you are trying to copy cannot be written or read, error -36"
- I click ok, and the file was copied but it's zero kb...
Starting to panic...
- I read on the forum that maybe the card needs to be formatted, so I downloaded the sdcard formatter recommended by deve loper and fired up windows, put the card and format it.... result: the card is succesfully formated but it's now only 2.2 gb! :o
- I then installed ubuntu to see whether the rest of the space is on a hidden partition somewhere but no.... gparted says it's only 1 partition of 2.2 gb...

-shut down windows 7 and ubuntu.
- Check on the transcend website for the serial number and there it was: "this serial number is genuine"
-Removed and inserted the card on my mac again
- Now, disk utility says the card it's "Apple SDXC reader media" size 32.46! :o with one volume fat32 of 2.2 gb
So I thought I solved the problem, copied some files to the card and deleted them and everything works well again... until I opened the module and replace it....
Now I get a bunch of "fat" and  "No OS" errors....

Can I send the card to Sweden or wherever 2box format them? Because it seems that Mac OS, sdcards formatted in windows and 2box bootloaders and Os don't play well together....

Have a nice weekend everyone :patbat2box:

DrumIt 3 and DrumIt 5 Software - PC / Mac / How to trigger VST's?
« on: May 24, 2011, 07:37:18 AM »
I have Superior Drummer and BFD Eco. I want to trigger some sounds just to see how it works with the 2box, I know the 2box sounds are great but I want to try VST's as well. ::)

That being said, I plugged the whole rig Midi out 2box>Midi in usb Audio interface>usb audio interface to mac, launched SD2, selected my audio interface under the midi and audio prefs and....Bang....
 :o All I could hear was a terrible noise when hitting a pad!
I can see the midi section on BFD Eco and SD2 lighting up when I hit the pad so midi is not the problem..Turned off local control as well. I tried every midi channel in the module from 1 to 16 and still the same...
Any advice? maybe I should change something in the fader or mixer prefs?

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Finally got my 2Box Drumit 5
« on: May 24, 2011, 05:53:11 AM »
I finally manage to assembly my full kit :animal: Thanks to edrum attic for making that possible :rock:
At first play, the sounds are pretty good but as mentioned before my others, the kick just doesn't sound right out of the box, so the first thing I did was to change the curve to max2 :-\
I notice the pads head tension is not tight enough, I didn't find it in the manual neither, so beginners or people new to electronic drums must tension the head evenly! Anyway, here are some pics:

cheers and happy drumming :patbat2box:

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Micro SDHC in SD adapter into 2box?
« on: May 18, 2011, 11:06:51 PM »
Hi there,
There's a wicked deal for a 32GB micro SD card on ebay for 1 day only. Can I put this in a SD card adapter and upgrade my module to glorious 32GB?
Anyone has tried?

DrumIt 5 Hardware / Yamaha cymbals PCY135 & PCY155 with 2box
« on: May 10, 2011, 07:00:48 AM »
Since it appears 2box cymbals have vanished from the face of this earth, I'm thinking of getting yamaha cymbals.
Anybody using those either as ride or crash? they are 3 zones so I wonder how the 2box interprets the signal?
I did a search but the posts I found were too old (Jan 2010, NOv 2009) :P

Hi 2boxers,

I used my initiative and contacted Patrick Robin, the maker of the sample library NDK to see whether he could offer a discount for people interested in the library.

Turns out he actually is, so it basically works like this:

- If at least 10 people is interested then we get NDK at $99 (That's a $30 discount)
- If there are more than 10 interested then he could do a further discount (depending on the number of people interested of course)

Timeframe would be initially till the end of this week. So, who is in? I'm in! so we need at least 9 more :rock:
Just express your interest here and we go from there.
P.S. Sorry for the people who already bought it but the discount is not retroactive...


General 2box Drumit 5 forum / 2Box "rim gain"?
« on: May 04, 2011, 08:31:02 AM »
Hi all,
I finally got my 2box module and I'm in the process of setting everything up with my roland mesh pads. One thing I notice straight away is that hard head hits on all my pads trigger ring shots. I checked the midi notes and it sends a different note depending on how hard I hit. In the roland modules there is a setting called "Rim gain" to reduce the likeliness of the above behavior. Does anybody know if there is something similar I can do on the 2box to reduce this?

Cymbals work great out of the box with no tweaking needed. Chokes work like a charm. Ride bell needs some whacking but that's no different than the roland one, so I'm used to it ::)

Checking all the kits now...
Excited :rock:
