Alternate Mode is proud to announce the release of the new drumKAT Turbo KS; a new drumKAT with built in sounds. This drum controller features "Sounds powered by Kurzweil", a world renowned leader in keyboards and synthesizers.
The Kurzweil engine built into the is a newly designed sound engine that features an incredible drum sound chip as well as the sound set from their new PC3 keyboard. There are over 256 drum sets and percussion setups. The drumKAT Turbo KS now includes beautiful, natural sounding drum sets as well as highly stylized drum sets and everything in between. There are also incredible orchestral percussion such as timpani, xylophone, marimba, bells, vibes, orch perc as well as ethnic percussion and more.
There are also over 1000 other sounds built into the drumKAT Turbo KS as well. These instruments are the same sounds that are now built into the malletKAT. It is now also possible to play MIDI files directly into the drumKAT Turbo KS via its MIDI IN port. Now the band can really be in the box! If you have a malletKAT, you can plug your instrument into the MIDI IN port and both can share the sound module as well.

The instrument also includes a pair of 1/4" inputs so that you can merge audio data to the outputs. This means that you can plug a CD player or some other audio source directly into the drumKAT Turbo KS and have both sources go the 1/4" headphone jack or audio outs.
