3 tracks from my band using the 2box kit (Metal genre)

Hey all,

I recently recorded 10 songs for my bands album and I recorded all the drums with the 2box kit. You can check out 3 songs here:

Drums sound great. Tunes are cool too. Not really a fan of the vocal style though....but over all...great job. Curious to know what samples you used too. :)

Hey all,

Thanks for the feedback! I'm hoping to have the album out in January. I'll be sure to post a link. We are trying to get it on Itunes etc.

The drum samples used were a mix of a bunch of stuff that I spent MANY hours on. The toms and kick are from the DB Samples collection and Invictus samples that can be found with a quick search on google. They are really cheap to buy and definitely worth it! I used adobe media encoder to convert the files to .wav 44.1 and then used dsoundtool to turn them into something that 2box could understand. The snare is a kit sound and so are a few of the cymbals. I believe the China/spash or whatever it's called was a random sample I found on line that I've added to my drum samples collection over the years.

I recorded 8 channels out into protools using the ADAT connections on the back of the digi02 rack.

Can't remember exactly how I set it up, but it was something like this:
Kick to 1
Snare to 2
Toms to 3 and 4
Hihat/ride to 5
crash to 6
crash 2 to 7
china to 8


We would love to play a show in Greece! 4/5 members are greek hahah so there's a very good chance that may happen in the future!

Thanks for the feedback again!

once your are here wed be happy to share the stage with you guys!!! wooow!!! we could arrange a gig and all youd have to do would be show up and blow our minds away.
ill talk to my bassist about the set up since he is the technology guru, but from what i understand, you recorded in wav format, using 8 outputs right?
great!!
i am having a rough time  setting up my pc as i formatted yesterday, but once i am done ill post some more here!!!
i really love your band guys!!!

Appreciate the invite and thanks for the kind words!

For live shows I give the sound guy a stereo out of the kit or if he wants more I give him snare and kick as 1 and 2 and then the rest of the kit as 3 and 4.

Good luck with your pc!
