Drumit3 & Roand FD8 (Sounds Inbetween Open & Closed)
« on: May 03, 2022, 10:20:56 PM »
Hi All, I may be a newbe hear but my experience messing with electronic drums goes back to the 80s with Rolands DDR30 (just 4 toms, snare, & bass - no cymbals). Anyway I as others have had problems obtaining the HH sounds between open and closed so I reached out to Anders @ Zourman and he was gracious enough to get back to me and mention that his HH module would not solve the inbetween sounds of the HH with the drumit3. Knowing this I started comparing the guidance in the 2box manual and the article Anders wrote "Zourman Drums : Roland HH & Ride Guide for 2Box Drumit3". If you go to the manual p19 5.1 Press l/data button once - a closed HH appears 5.2 Close the HH 5.3 press l/data button 2nd time - open HH appears P20 5.4 open HH 5.5 press l/data button to exit. this operation never gave me the inbetween sounds for the HH. Now the process given by Anders (if I understand it correctly). Adjust the RAW setting with the foot pedal all the way down or closed. now while still holding the foot pedal closed or all the way down press the l/datd button twice slowly - this will start the calibration and set the closed value. now press the l/data button again and open the HH. I would just add which I think is right after releasing the pedal all the way to press the l/data button once more to exit the calibration as the manual says. I tried this way and now I have the inbetween HH sounds. Hope this can be of some help to some of you out there and my thanks to Anders for his help.

I also started with a DDR30! Those pads are hard on the wrists!!

Thanks for the setup info! I'll be setting up an FD-7 with Zourman soon so appreciate the tips.

Cheers!

Yeah, the DDR30 press board and hard rubber pads
