SDSE box

Great software and awesome support whether it's regarding SDSE, the VST or even the OS. For me there is no using 2box without SDSE!
Johannes

It's a no brainer, sit behind your computer for hours and hours on end making samples OR purchase SDSE, click export and go do something more valuable with your time.
MellowdyStudios

Your SDSE tool is real gem, I have already added at least 7 great kits and all my favorite cymbals to Drumit Five module :)
Janis R.

I'm truly amazed by your software. It's the perfect tool, worth every cent. I'm really enjoying my drums now.
Ales P.

One of the best investments for anyone with a 2Box module!
Scott W.

I just wanted to drop a quick note to say that SDSE is a fantastic piece of software - really great. It's completely transformed my Drumit 3, and in turn my entire studio and workflow when recording, rehearsing and mixing drum. Brilliant stuff. I think I speak for all e-drummers out there in saying we're grateful for such a useful piece of software...
Tim W.

WOW! This tool is amazing. I was able to get all of my SSD5 drums exported so I'll now be able to use them with my drum module. I did this in less than one day. It would have taken me months to do this manually. That's assuming that I could even do it at all. Thank you for this amazing tool.

Set up your kit layout with DKit Manager (free feature)

DKit Manager Layout editor
You can customize the kit layout used by SDSE if you have split your tom pads to add more cymbals or if you use any custom setup.

Use DKit Manager to set up your kit Layout.
When you export a kit for the DrumIt Five or DrumIt Three SDSE will use the current layout setting from DKit Manager to build a .dkit file that matches your own setup.
