Why not combine both? drumit 3 and edrumin 4 via midi for hihat and snare?
I think he just wanted to shameless plug his guitar shop...
I was surprised to see a new mod, he came out of nowhere...
I never understood why the default CC pedal setting was 2... many new users will never change it to CC4! so they won't get the data sent...
it's not a bug, it's normal behaviour, hihat is the weakest link in the 2box triggering chain, hard to admit, sad but true...

Enabling real 3 zone snare support would be an excellent new feature.

They would need to code new midpoint thresholds in the unit settings however to allow us to calibrate it properly. Are we suggesting 2box no longer has a coder on their support team, which is why they cannot even approach these ideas?  :-X

they have more than one, but they are not full-time there at 2box and seemed uninterested in hearing feedback, also I'm subscribed to the 2box newsletter since day one around 2012, to this day I haven't received 1...

Interesting. 2Box has told me directly (as well as a few others) that MIDI cross stick would definitely be in the next official firmware. We will see. I don't know why this site has it posted before 2Box themselves or if it is even finished (I would assume not since they haven't posted it...)

The manual is available to download but only in german, it seems to be the first version though since it says on MIDI "Update zu Punkt 8.9 MIDI:
Der Midi Player mit seinen Funktionen wird erst zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt mit einem Update des OS in vollem Umfang zur Verfügung stehen. Momentan sind nicht alle MIDI Funktionen fehlerfrei nutzbar. Das aktuelle Betriebssystem steht Ihnen jederzeit zum Download auf zur Verfügung"....

which roughly translates to: "MIDI section is still under development and not all MIDI settings are working, we will release an OS update soon" the module shipped initially with 1.38 so I think the update is 1.40 I posted so all MIDI settings should be working now.. the manual hasn't been updated.

Sadly MIDI Xstick separate note is still not there...

Well my 2box Drumit5 MKII runs just fine on 1.40.0.

There is now an SCHAN On/Off in the UNIT MIDI. 

I can't see any other new settings in the UNIT or KIT menus. No new FX, Hihat feels the same, etc. No noticeable difference in triggering except my crashes did need adjusting. Everything triggers very well I must add.

SCHAN on/off could be "Single channel" MIDI so you use one channel only for all drums/cymbals. Can you describe what you see in the MIDI page?

He has the latest official one, 1.36.3. So yes, those parameters are in there.
Ok, but are they set to "On" for all pads or just some of them? if they are all off he won't notice any latency/lag/stuttering, and if he is not playing SD2-3 exported kits he won't notice it either...

Do you have an average file size for an entire SD3 kit where this problem occurs? A friend has kits over 1 GB running with 0 glitches (not from SD, though.) Also, if you know about audio editing and such, you can save a lot of space by trimming the ends off each sample once SDSE creates them (or in cases of libraries where you can get into the raw data, after that is extracted.) Sometimes there are 2, 4 or even more seconds of silence at the ends of samples that can simply be chopped off.
Average size for a SD3 kit is around 900MB for dry kits and 1.2GB for presets. But that doesn't seem to be the issue since, as halftime says, this happens with any SD2-3 kit no matter the size...

The OS for the fame modul which is a modified drumit 3 is now available to download from here:
If you're feeling adventurous and want to try it on your 2box module go ahead.
Good to know, now the only issue remaining is the latency/lag/stuttering with SD3 full kits
It would be interesting if someone who still has the first drumit 5 and the 2box pads to check this sounds and hear what happens
It is not working on my system either, I own the full version, Slate released an update for SSD5.5 in may so maybe SDSE hasn't been updated to support it, no biggie, I'm sure Lustar will fix this in no time. The SSD5 version is now 5.5.4 and the plugin is 1.2.4
I just imported a kit from Steven Slate drums 5.5, the kick and toms of the "Cut Ya" kit, the result is the same, terminator sounds when playing 2 toms and kick at the same time... so this happening with richly detailed sampled libraries like SD3 only can be ruled out...
