KSing your drumKAT Turbo
« on: May 04, 2012, 01:41:08 PM »
I received several emails regarding putting the KS sound module inside the drumKAT.  I checked with production...
we can do it!

I am not going to put it on the site as a production product (at least not yet), but if you want to update your turbo or
if you want a turbo KS, contact me........mario@alternatemode.com

Hm.  The manuals are meant to all be here: http://www.alternatemode.com/manuals.shtml
... The only KS one I see is the MalletKAT one.  The only Turbo I see is the Turbo2000 (which may still be valid, if read with the other bits and bobs of DrumKat manual up to 3.8)...

Mario's just done a rewrite on the TrapKAT manual.  Maybe the DrumKAT can get the same treatment?

one thing I just stumbled onto..... I was having a few issues with my Turbo KS, so like Ive done many times with the TrapKat5KS was I re-initialized the unit ....I know that's the pimpy way out, but if it works and there is no harm/no foul....so be it....

WELL, I tried that with my Drumkat Turbo KS, and it went to just *01 ROM KIT.....and nothing.....I wasn't getting any sounds!!!! >:(

Luckily, I had a Drumkat Turbo KS Sysex dump I got from Mario, and it looks like it saved my ass, I was freakin.....thinking I had send the unit it, etc,etc..

So, Using Midi ox..

(link to that sysex file)
these are the settings used ...I dont know if this means anything or will help anyone but here it is:



now this is just from my PC using midi ox, with my Turbo KS....my other Turbo DrumKat without sounds is another issue entirely

I just saw the manuals...great that you've got the one for the drumKAT 3.5. I just decided to let it be published by a print shop...just to have it in good quality since it will get used a lot. So thank you for your efforts! hope, you'll have a nice week end!
