 Tim & I  & another audio engineer tested an inHead made by Aquarian/Midiitronix & I was very surprised by how well it functioned dynamically , even before we tweaked the DK trigger parameters. Isn't THIS product the solution for all the "it doesn't 'feel' like a drumhead" people ?  We had a 14" inHead on a snare.Into a trigger input on a DrumKat.Into several modules & software for comparing sensitivity , curve etc. I believe Kontact worked best as far as the proper dynamic rise of the curve setting. Tim has Kontact, so I was not familiar with all the windows & functions. I called Mario & he led me to the mod,ADSR,curve screen & if you use Kontact with Any controller ,THIS is where all the proper dynamics need to be set up.

Orb...

I have found that the VELOCITY TO VOLUME setting in the MOD section in Kontact is the key to getting a
good dynamic response.    Careful not to crank up that setting too high.  The dynamics become unnatural., with
the extreme volumes on both ends

Thanks Mario. After you told me where to look in Kontact , & Tim found it on his soft,we dialed in the dynamic range . When logic failed ,we simply said - { like the eye doctor }   better ?   or worse ?    better or worse ?   & it was very helpful to have a player & a tweaker. Even though we basically had it set real well rather quickly  , we still wanted to further explore the possible best range/curve/etc.   So AM can give everybody the settings like you do when you ship a pedal/trigger , etc. Or the new inHead - THE FREAKIN' REVOLUTIONARY INHEAD !      CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW !!   caps lock off ..

I have more to tell about the set up & testing & also how the dynamic range of the live snare & the sample ( only ) in the headphone combined for a very realistic dynamic sound & feel.  You do need to crank the phones to properly hear the lowest dynamic levels of the sample. But as you get louder , the curve of the live snare bleed & the sample combined for a very realistic playing experience.

Out of the box I'd give it a 9 out of 10.    AM hit the mark with this product.   8)
