DrumIt 5 Hardware / Broken 2box cymbal loose cable repairable?
« Last post by boekhour on July 21, 2022, 01:58:56 PM »
Hello, after years coming back here, my old username didn't exist anymore so I made the same one.

Anyway with some enthousiast hitting one cymbal stopped working, A cable has come loose, see attached picture. Does a simple soldering job help or does it not. I see some insulation material under the soldering point at the loose cable. That material has been broken of from the cymbal itself as you can see at the picture. Is this repairable?

What is a good alternative cymbal from another brand for the 2box?

Ich bin ein alter Clavia-Nord-Fan. Hab ein DDrum4 Drumset mit Simon Philipps Setup und eben ein 2Box Drumit5 MK1 Hybridset mit echten Kesseln.
Ich hab die VH-12 Hihatmaschine und hätte ein VH-11 Zourman- Angebot.
Ich weiss, dass es dafür extra das zourman- VH-12 gibt. Aber es geht ja auch mit dem Zourman vh-11. Aber wie gut?!. Reicht das aus, um es gut zu nutzen, evtl. auch mit den tight-closed Hihat sounds?!
Danke für eine Rückmeldung,
Hab im Forum dazu nichts gefunden.
Gruß, Jörg

The MIDI part still sucks, there’s no way of changing anything but the note, no midi thru, no local control and the aftertouch is only sent and not received, lots of missing stuff still.

1 year later and still no update for 2box, why? What’s the excuse now?

I tried the cc16 with SD3 and EZD3 this morning, the mimic works best with EZD3 since it needs only center and edge sounds, one can clearly hear center and edge articulations played accurately whereas with SD3 you have 3 zones but the transition among them is not great with the mimic, it jumps from off-center to edge, I remember you could select how many zones you wanted but now I can't find how to do that. Anyway, standalone works great with an efnote 14" snare, smooth transition between center and side sounds.

I just hope Lustar is okay, I haven't seen him active on here since 12 May.

But yes, SDSE support for the Mimic Pro editor (however that materialises) would be very beneficial.

I think the critical things would be disabling the hihat export. Adding snare center, side, rimclick, sidestick, rimclick, rimshot side in 1-stage. Adding choke rings to the cymbal exports.

As it stands now, the manual export can work fairly well I think.

Update is live now, I guess the great lustark will have a busy weekend…
A big letdown: the instrument editor won’t support hihats…

Cymbal input A and B are for use with two cable, Roland style cymbals only. Input B cannot be used as a separate 1 zone input unfortunately.
Many people split the toms off to lose the rim for use for such things though, so you can expand the module to have more than 3 cymbals.
You definitely will see an improvement with triggering with the new Di3/5 mk2 universal trigger interface though. Namely the use of Yamaha 3 zone pads and 3 zone cymbals from one cable is a bonus!
In my experience the older TP120/110 rubber pads were the best for this. The XP series pads less so, they're colder in signal and the rims aren't as clean for some reason. But they do feel lovely to play though! But I really liked the TP pads though, best rubber pads ever. They're easy to come by too and cheap as!
Sound wise you'll not hear any difference, it uses the same sample format.
If it was me, I would keep hold of your Mk1 module for the use of extra inputs, and pick up a Di3 either new or second hand, they do pop up occasionally.
