Roland TD12 to 2Box Drumit 3 - worth it?
« on: February 03, 2021, 05:24:42 AM »
Hi

newbie here.  I've currently got a Roland TD12 and now I'm starting to work on things like doubles, 6 stroke rolls and generally playing around with ghost notes.  The TD12 isn't sounding so good. I'm after something that sounds better and doesn't 'machine gun'.

I have gradually upgraded from a Roland TD4 to a TD9 to a TD12.  I'm thinking it's time to jump ship and everything I've read about the 2Box Drumit 3 is very positive.  My only concern is that I'm in Australia and 2Box do not have a distributor down here. 

Would you upgrade from a TD12 to the 2Box Drumit 3?

Thanks

The two modules are quite different. While the TD12 has a lot of inputs and the same amount of outputs. It sonically is chalk and cheese to the drumit3. Not just from what's in the box, but the potential for custom sound input.

If it was a choice of the two for me, I would go with the TD12 if I was triggering (or planning to) a VST on a computer. But as a stand alone module, Drumit3 every day.

If its the kits sounds your not happy with and its a stock TD12 then i recommend VEXPRESSIONS and Vdrum editor if you havnt already done so
