The power of the drumKAT finally comes to the trapKAT. Now you can layer, velocity shift, or alternate up to 4 sounds per pad!
HOW TO SETUP:
1. To select a multi-pad, choose a curve ( Kit/Pad Edit footswitch and hit Rim pad 14) to determine how many notes you want the pad to play. Choose from one of the NEW additional 8 curves...
2ND NOTE @ HARDEST — Sound 2 comes only for hardest hits
2ND NOTE @ HARD — Sound 2 comes only for hard hits
2ND NOTE @ MEDIUM — Sound 2 comes in at medium hits
2ND NOTE @ SOFT — Sound 2 comes in a soft hits
2 NOTE LAYER — Simultaneous sounds 1 and 2
XFADE @ MIDDLE — Crossfades of sounds 1 and 2 where they mix in the middle
XSWITCH @ MIDDLE — Crossfades of sounds 1 and 2 where there is an exclusive switching from one to the other in the middle.
1 @ MEDIUM: 3 @ HARDEST — Sound 3 comes in for only the hardest hits. Sounds 2 comes in for medium hits.
2 @ MEDIUM: 3 @ HARD — Sound 3 comes in for hard hits, Sound 2 comes in for medium hits.
2DOUBLE 1; 3 @ MED. — Sound 3 comes in for medium hits, Sound 2 doubles Sound 1 all the time.
3 NOTE LAYER — Simultaneously play sounds 1, 2, and 3
4 NOTE SHIFT — Sound 4 comes in for the hardest hits, Sound 3 for medium, Sound 2 on soft.
4 NOTE LAYER — Simultaneously plays 1, 2, 3 and 4
ALT 1&2 — Alternate sounds 1 and 2
ALT 1&2&3 — Alternate sounds 1, 2 and 3
ALT 1&2&3&4 — Alternate sounds 1, 2, 3 and 4
2. To edit the various notes per pad, hold down the NOTE Edit footswitch and the KIT Edit footswitch simultaneously then hit the pad you wish to edit. Each hit now, will rotate through the layers on the pad. If you release the KIT Edit footswitch you can now edit the layer you are looking at. If you release the NOTE Edit footswitch, you will return to PLAY Mode.
NOTE: If all of the pads are on the same multi curve and the user presses both footswitches but does not release the pedals but goes from pad to pad, then all programming for each of the pads will be on the same layer.
