What are the symptoms when you say the pad is defective?
Maybe it can just be fixed...
DrumIt 5 Hardware / Snare Pad
Last post by Robby - June 14, 2024, 12:13:00 PM
Hello, I own an old 2box DrumIt 5 of the first generation. The snare pad is now defective, and I can't find one to buy. Are there any alternatives that are compatible with this drum module?

Yes you're right, ambience baked into the sample can be sort of fixed by shortening decay, but you'd be much better off loading dry drum samples. Or at least drum samples with overhead only in the mix. Easy done!

If you like ez drummer, find a kit you like and kill the ambience, use Lustark software for one click rendering to 2box DSND format. Job done!

Hey guys,

The last drummer in my cover band had an old ddrum module and ddrum triggers. Even though we sometimes struggled with some double triggering, going from miked up drums to a miked / hybrid setup, or even ditching the drum mikes all together, was a huge step up for the overall sound we wanted.

Now we have a new drummer, and him and me are looking into developing a hybrid setup for his drums as an addition, or an alternative, to miking up. We want to be able to route kick, snare and toms to individual outputs, so it looks like that puts us in the drumit price range and upwards. I have been using ezdrummer and superior for ever, so the flexibility of being able to upload multilayered round robin samples seems perfect.

My concern is that it seems like ambience and reverb are non-controllable in the drumit modules. In a live setting these are parameters that, in my experience, are important to be able to control.

I'm looking for advice and experiences regarding the use of the drumit modules in a live setting.


General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Hihat raw setting
Last post by anatolewilson - June 07, 2024, 03:07:22 AM
I have a drumit 5 MK2. Had some issues with my hihat, so decided to re-calibrate it. The screw on the back does nothing now? I've never had this problem until today.

I turn the screw and nothing happens. Any suggestions?


Does anyone know how to set up an off-brand hihat with the 2Box Drumit 5 MK II module? I have a Millenium MPS-1000 e-kit, and I can't get the hi-hat to register.

I've tried turning the RAW calibration knob on the back, but it only responds when I set the hi-hat type to Alesis. No matter my RAW value, the module won't register that I'm pressing down on the hi-hat pedal. I'm using stereo TRS cables.

Is the Drumit 5 module only compatible with Roland, 2BOX and Alesis hi-hats? Their compatibility chart claims they support Millenium, so I'm not sure why the hi-hat won't register.

My settings may be wrong, does anyone know how to set up third-party hi-hats with the 2BOX Drumit 5 module?

I am not in Ireland, I am in Wales. But I used the drumit5 (mk1 module) with acoustic drums with mylar heads for a couple of tours a few years ago. I might be able to answer some questions you have.

A 1 day response wasnt quick enough :-) You sure were eager to fix it.


Hahaha... it had nothing to do with the response time.  I am an Industrial Controls Engineer, had worked on my ddrum untie before, and I had no doubt I could fix it.  I guess I was just hesitant. Frustration with myself got the best of me. I also wasn't sure the forum was still active, as I've stated before.  Glad to see I was wrong!

Hi all i just asking if there are any users based in Ireland  who are successfully using the 2box five drum module with triggers on an acoustic kit and if so would they mind if i ask them for some advice. Thanks
