I do agree on this, Karbonfaiba - that more advanced hh functionality is not in the "box" like transmuting etc regardless what we do out side the box. So then we are probably back to VST + eDrumin...to get the best hh functionality.

I seriously doubt it will make any difference because the problem is not the hardware related.

This isn't to say increasing the precision, reducing the tolerances or increasing the sensor resolution (or polling rate) of the hihat controller won't help make the experience better - yes that does help.

But none of this will give our 2box module the ability to make separate chick and splash samples, nor play a long chick sample, nor will it enable transmuting. Which is the technology that plays all openness levels simultaneously and crossfades between those levels as you move the pedal.

Using an eDrumin may be more beneficial for calibration. I can even think of a trick to borrow a zone and divert a MIDI note - but it's an ugly solution.

Maybe it is time for a A and B test video comparing the native hh support on MKII for Roland VH-11 vs Zourman FD-8/ VH-11 conversion module with the same equipment. :-)

I have for natural causes not been focusing on this - my focus have always been helping users on the MKI module which don’t have any choices regarding support for roland hihat’s at all.

But, i know I get happy when I connect my conversation module to my MKII or Three modules…but there is no truth or science behind this - just a feeling…which could be very wrong.

Hi!

For Mac - the only tool available is the 2box DrumIt editor. If you use a pc - I would recommend the DrumIt Manager from Lustark.

If you have kits on your 2box with missing sounds (most often the associated dsnd is missing)….I would definitely recommend borrowing a PC and run the DrumIt manager. It can create a complete list of missing sounds…do batch jobs to fix it etc.

To my knowledge - the dkit structure have not been discussed on this forum…but is of course a good question. :-) It is maybe not too much rocket science as third part tools can handle it.

Best regards

DrumIt 3 and DrumIt 5 Software - PC / Mac / dkit file format documentation

Is the .dkit file format documented anywhere? I have some kits that are missing sounds and I'd rather fix/list these errors in batch rather than by clicking through the drumit editor (which crashes a fair bit on MacOS)

This works great thanks!  My ddrum3 samples convert also

Nice!

IIRC you need to import the dd3 file into an audio editor (like Audacity) as raw, 16bit, Big Endian and then save as a wave file? There are many cool dd3 samples so I was considering adding the ability to read these directly as well without the preliminary conversion requirement.

Cheers!

This will also do it:

wget -r -A zip --accept-regex '(/content/|/sounds/|/uploads/)' https://2box-drums.com/sounds/

The DDrum Legacy / Re: ddrum4edit sound file editing tool 1.23

Ken just launched a new version of the fantastic tool ddrum4edit!!

The new version of ddrum4edit now supports direct wave file encoding and no longer requires the extra load/dump process for the module to do the encoding as was done previously.

The latest ddrum4edit 1.00.23 is now available, including new support for including custom samples.

More info available on the ddrum forum https://unofficially-ddrum.proboards.com/post/1943/thread.

Cheers and Enjoy says KEN!!! (And we say THANK YOU!!!)

General 2box Drumit 5 forum / Re: Help with best module for Hi Hat and ride.

The hi-hat on my DrumIt 3 doesn't feel quite as smooth as on my old TD-12 and I've read similar comments from others as well, so I doubt that changing the conversion box makes a huge difference. Hi-hat triggering isn't one of 2Box's strong points.

Roland is quite widely considered to be the best in hi-hat triggering. There's also the option of EDrumIn + VST, but at that point you might as well get rid of the 2Box entirely and just use the VST.

Thanks this is helpful.  I assume the 5 ver II has the same hh engine. If you heard about the mods from zourman let me know.
