The 64 GB card which is on the picture in previous post, worked in my MKII. But I think I need to run it for some days before really accepting that it works flawlessly. :-)

Best Friends.

Tested with a 128 GB SDXC Card from Kingston with Jojo34s new findings - so here comes my 2 cents:

Performing all outlined steps in the 64 GB approach described by Jojo34 - but instead in this case use a 128 GB card, extend the partition to include the whole SDXC card - e.g.  128 GB. This will however leave you with the disappointing result that the Drumit will just try to boot forever.  :(

Ok - some more tests:
  • Setting the partition size below 60GB - WORKS! Good thing are that you can use a 128GB card - even if you are only using 50% of it... :D
  • Setting it above 60GB - and Drumit will try to boot the OS forever... :(

So the conclusion is - around 60GB is the maximum which all Drumits can address. (A normal 64GB card will probably leave you with a partition size on around 58 GB). Based on the fairly advanced process to generate a working SDXC card - I think we can estimate that 2box never will officially be supporting 64GB. (But I can be wrong here -  8) )

But we have a nice workaround - and it is actually quite hard to fill up all 60GB with dsnd files...!  ???

Thanx for trying out Anders👍 So 64 GB is the maximum.
I’am happy with it! And I’am happy with this 2box forum.
Now that Jerry is gone ( R.I.P brother )we have to figure things out ourself.
But with the help from each other we can do achieve things!💪

I'm going to order a 64 GB card today or tomorrow and test this as well. Awesome to see it working for everyone, this is so much better than switching cards in and out.

I tried my 64 GB with a extension cable (50 cm length) on my Five & Five MKII for a couple of hours without any problems. I will do it also in the near time on my Three.

I followed the instructions and now I have a working 64 SD Card in my drumit 3, it's the Sandisk Extreme Pro, sadly, the latency issue is still there, playing with the envelope helps but then you have drums and cymbals that stop sounding/ringing abruptly, who wants that....

That is strange. I have never heard of a latency issue before, other than using incorrect cards.

Hmm, did the card You copied also show latency issues? To find the right card is maybe still an issue even if moving to 64GB.  My Sandisk Ultra 100 mb/s SD card with 50 cm extender cable seems to work fine...and has done it for a week or so...
