sound sample listing ?
« on: August 04, 2009, 03:16:46 AM »
Hi guys,
After perusing the online manual back to front I was a bit dismayed that there was no listing of what the samples were in the unit. Can anybody put up a list or pdf.
Cheers   :)
Ian

Doesn't some kind of sound sample dvd or cd come with the drums? I think i read it somewhere on the net that samples come with the drums software....

If anyone's got the disc, you can use something like winamp to drag the disk into a playlist and then save the playlist as an HTML file. I doubt it will pick up directory structure though (presumably kits are saved in their own individual folders).

No media came with the unit, just the brain, stereo jacks to connect pads to brain.

Connecting a USB lets you see the file structure in Windows.... The samples are quite good, but depending if you're not moving the kit about a lot, get BFD and install that on a laptop or PC... or choose the best BFD samples and load them on the unit. I will be testing this once I move my kit up to the loft....

With the Unit you don't get a disk, it is all pre-loaded on the Unit itself. I have just been through all the kits and made a note of their names. I know this doesn't help with what samples are pre-loaded, but i will hopefully be able to get that info for you in Thursday.

Hi Scott....is there any software for PC that comes with the unit?

Not sure, but think that there was some software for the drums where you can select the pad and here how does it sound like...or was i dreaming  :-[

"Editor: PC / Mac software for editing drum kits on the computer and ( in a later revision ) editing DrumIt sounds or create multi-sampled user sounds from wav, aiff or rex files."

Did the initial editor not make it into the final release? Do we know timescales?

Generally speaking it seems that there is a lot to improve with the set....fix all the "bugs"  :(

Hey ber0ni

There will be software which allows you to drag and drop sounds on to each pad, so you can create your own personal kits. You will also be able to create your own multi leveled sounds as well.
This is all being worked on at the moment, and i will hopefully be able to give you a more accurate ETA on when we can expect to see the editor, in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks

ber0ni could you list all the "bugs" that you have found? This is helpful for feedback to the guys at 2box.

well it seems that guys at the 2box have great vision how should drums be....which is great! i know i can't demand the perfection...it's like the superhero....first everything is awsome, but after sometime you notice that the guy has bad hair, big noise, small ears etc :)

what i'm trying to say is that maybe 2box should have taken a little bit more time to finalize all the little things....like usb version, software realese etc.  few things that can make the differance on the market

my suggestion to the 2box is adding an usb port for external usb/flash memory stick or cardholder...

i know that i maybe sound sarcastic or slamming your product, but as a potential customer make me change the sides e.g. why shouldn't i buy roland instead of 2box...money is not the problem it's the instrument that satisfy most of my needs....

thanks

I agree to some extent there Ber0ni, however please don't say take more time! I waited a year since order! haha.

In all seriousness though, I actually think that releasing now is pretty good. For example the kit being 'open sound' means (hopefully) that the feedback will get listened to and good changes made. Rather than a new product from Roland et al, which is just another 'upgrade' to their existing kits which offer nothing new or user friendly.

I maybe wrong and 2box may shun everyone's ideas and opinions, but lets wait a while and see what happens?

So far so good, only the USB connection and editor is a flaw in my opinion but not massively as I can use other drum programs to tweak...

The DrumIt Five comes with 4GB of on board storage. They will be implementing 3 x lossless compression, so in one way you will have a lot more memory then 4GB to play with. Most people out there will not always being loading sounds on to the Unit, as they will have their own personal favorite kits. So i don't think having a USB/Flash memory stick is the most essentially thing for this kit.

OS updates is something that was planned from the start, and will carry on through DrumIt Fives life cycle. Just like most things out there now, everything has updates to improve things and clean out bugs. As an example my Xbox 360 is a totally different machine now, to what it was when i brought it at launch. I was impressed when i first brought it, and i could see the potential for it to grow to something even better, and that is what will happen with this kit. Everything has to start some where, otherwise it would never come out of development. I am very impressed with this kit, and to see what it has coming down the road to add new features makes me very excited.

The Unit's UI is very easy to get around, and the sounds are some of the best i have heard from an e-kit. These are real drum samples that have been created from scratch, a lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone in to them, to make them sound as good as possible. 2box will keep release new sounds for end users to download free of charge from the website as well.

At the end of the day everyone has different preferences when it comes to products. You have to go with the one that you feel fits your needs, and just enjoy it  :)

Thanks
Scott

Lets all hope that the DrumIt5 lasts for longer than a Xbox 360 though! The most unreliable consumer electronics product ever (this is just speculation on my part, but fair all the same).

Judging by the videos i have seen so far the drum sounds are excellent. 4GB is weak though compared to what we are used to nowadays. Can you tell me if the 2box software will actually compress the files whilst they are being loaded onto the module? Therefore providing a seamless transfer from start to finish? The alternative is for us to use a tool to compress the kits first, and then use a different tool to transfer them over.
