    My acoustic hi-hats are actually Zildjian A Custom 13", so i'm not too concerned about the Roland being 12". I had to make the compromise somewhere to work with the 2box module, without the need to add conversion kits (and extra cost).

    The ATV module seems to lack the degree of...

    Thanks again holzi2000 and everyone else who has commented on this thread.

    I'm going to go for the ATV EXS-5 with Roland VH-10 hi-hat and i'm leaning towards the drumit 3 module. I can add a VST / audio interface at a slightly later date. Who knows, i may be able to get the sounds i want...

    Thanks for the reply holzi2000.I have emailed drumtec, so i will see what they come back with.

    Thats an interesting point on the sounds not being 1:1 quality wise, i would have thought it would play the sound back exactly as it would in SD3 itself. I'm trying to avoid an audio interface...

    Thank you molson. Most reports of this problem seem to be from 2018, don't think i've seen a single complaint in 2019. Good to hear from someone who has played them for over a year without issues.




    TangTheHump, thank you again for your detailed thoughts.

    Sorry....MIDI in. Does using a splitter cause problems?

    You are quite right! It seems the more reading and research i do the more issues i come across, for example how the ATV cymbals can suffer from micro denting, this then throws more questions into the mix. Maybe i'm overthinking the...

    TangTheHump, thank you for the advice.

    I have had a look for the Drumit 5 mk2 but can't seem to find anywhere that sells it (i'm in the UK). I have found the Drumit 3 for 649 which is 100 more than the Roland, but it seems worth the extra money. However, it looks like i would need a Zourman...

    I've not heard anything other than SD3 that I'm confident I'll be happy with sound wise, so that could be a good shout. That would also be the cheapest.

    I think I'm correct in saying i could play SD3 sounds direct from the drumit 3 therefore cutting the laptop out completely? The Pearl...

    SD3 was purely to get the best sound, as things stand i won't be recording anything. I realise that could be a huge waste of what the software is capable of.

    The 2box drumit 3 module looks good, more inputs than the TD17, MIDI in and ability to import sounds. Which module could get me...

    Thank you both!

    Taking into account price, quality and setup the EXS-5 seems to fit the bill kit wise. If i added one more cymbal it would replicate my acoustic kit.

    The problem as you say above is do i want sounds from SD3 or the module. From what i've heard so far it would...

    Thanks for the response!

    What would you suggest? Overkill on the drums, module, software or the whole lot?

    Swapping the ATV module to Roland was mainly to allow for extra inputs if i want to expand the kit, SD3 would purely be for getting better sounds....

    ATV EXS-5 & Roland TD-17 & SD3

    Hello Everyone,

    After much research i am looking at replacing my acoustic setup (due to noise levels) with a ATV EXS-5 kit, Roland TD-17 Module and possibly Superior Drummer 3. This is to play at home only, no live work and no recording (for now).

    I am looking for something...
