    How do you route stereo instruments to the direct outs?
    I mean - as soon as you have stereo instruments, your direct outs count is basically divided by 2.
    So if you have some ordinary kit like: snare/kick/hat/ride/four toms/2 crashes - how do you route it to 8 mono outputs?

    I probbably need to add It's not any kind of irony or trolling - I really curious how people handle that.
    I usually map the following outputs like this.
    Kick- 1
    Snare - 2
    hi-hat -3
    Toms 4
    cymbals 5-6

    I usually don’t use the 7-8 outputs...but if you want the snare in stereo...and get the toms in stereo, there are possibilities.

    The 2box DrumIt Five MKII is very much the same hardware design as the old DrumIt Five...but has the universal trigger system + ext external SD access.

    The sounds are stored in one file...and can have several different hits/sounds as described like bow, edge, bell or crossticks, rim. Each sound can have up to 128 stereo layers...so a 3 zone snare could have 128 layers for each trigger type. (44.1 KHz with 16 bit in stereo)

    The hi-hat could use up to 8 sound layer groups (closed to open in 8 steps) up to 128 layers each...but most often the each layer is about 30-40 layers each on the hi-hat.


    Best regards

    Following up Mr Boo's question;

    Does 2box support stereo samples for every zone? E.g. a dual TRS input that supports a 3 zone cymbal... is that stereo bow samples + stereo edge samples + stereo bell samples?

    To use pads from other manufacturers is the only real new feature as far as i understand, of course compared to an old module with card mod, (some cosmetic changes left beside).
    does somebody has more/other informations on that? as others i am considering about selling the old one, but because i still have the original hihat pad maybe it wont be worth it.

    It won't change the module magically and give it new inputs. But all the same pads you could use on the original Drumit Five will still work, plus there are settings like the new Xtalk type settings between head and rim on a piezo/piezo pad which are an improvement over the previous LXTR settings in OS 1.32 ... I was addressing Peter's post about updating the OS .... and as I said the new OS is compatible with the old Drumit Five.

All you have to do is drag the new OS which is the file DrumitOS134.10.bin to the ROOT of the 32GB Card and the ROOT of your original 4GB 2Box Card. Do it in a Card Reader, do not attempt to use the USB connection on the module after doing the Card Mod. I have updated both my modules and all the Cards I have currently.

    I got some inside info about the new MKII. It will start shipping very soon. (I would say not more than a couple of weeks)
    Some websites have it already up on their shops. Pricing will be about €200 higher compared to DrumIt Three. Now you have a 32GB SD card installed which also is external accessible. (Easy to move and install the card in your PC and just transfer a couple of gigabytes...using your best drum VSTs moved by the SDSE Software)

    It has 6 outputs + headphones (which can be used as audio port 7&8) giving you 8 audio outputs. It is still the same number of trigger inputs as used in DI3. The MKII do also use the universal trigger interface introduced in DI3 (Where hi-hats and three zone rides from various vendors like Roland works directly) - It is only the ATV aD-H14 which will not work directly - but there is a conversion module for this from me - Zourman.com. :-)

    A lot of time have been spent on the new OS 1.34.10 which works for all drumit's 5, 3 and 5 MKII. The new crosstalk feature for snares and toms is not bad at all...

    Then there are some new great samples - (Yepp - additions to the already 1100 existing sounds)...but I think 2box wants to hold that info as a cliff hanger until the delivery starts! :-)

    (Yes, I do really like my MKII...:-)) Freedom through the open sound system - plus my own samples!

    I wrote this in EFNote topic but when I was gigging with Drumit5 I made following:
    Snare 1-2
    Kick 3-4
    Toms 5-6
    Cymbals 7-8

    There really was a difference if feeding mono or stereo. Especially snare.

I wish all modules would take page from atv, loved how easy that module was to set up with other pads. Just my 2cents
    The hi-hat is the one thing that would drive me crazy if it didn't work well. I have the ATV hi-hat but also have Jmans 2Box converter box from years ago so I'd probably use that in place of the ATV controller.
