TO TRAIN BREATH CONTROLLER
Kit Auxiliary Short Cut = # 10
The response of the breath controller may be set at this screen by training the breath controller. Your first step is to adjust the trimpots on the BC itself. This may require experimentation. To train the breath controller, strike any pad one more time and release the Edit . The malletKAT PRO will sound a continuous beep. You should respond by blowing through the breath controller and then hitting a pad (while still blowing). The malletKAT PRO will again sound a continuous beep. You should now hit a pad again without blowing. The breath controller is now trained.  
Use the following screens to fine tune the Breath Controller...
BREATH CONTROLLER ASSIGNMENT
Kit Auxiliary Short Cut = # 19
Parameters = CC# 00-128 (including some individually named CC Functions)
This function routes the incoming Breath Control data to the specified Continuous Controller function.  
BREATH CONTROLLER CHANNEL
Kit Auxiliary Short Cut = # 23
Parameters = Same as CNTRL1, Same as CNTRL2, Both Controllers, 01-16.
Assigns the incoming Breath Control data to MIDI channels 1-16, the MIDI channel assigned to Controller 1 or 2 or Both.  
BREATH CONTROLLER CURVE
Kit Auxiliary Short Cut = # 22
Parameters = 00-11
This parameter controls the response of the breath controller by assigning a curved response to the incoming breath input. (linear, exponential, etc)
BREATH CONTROLLER MAXIMUM EFFECT
Kit Auxiliary Short Cut = # 21
Parameters = 00-127
This parameter establishes the maximum controller effect from the incoming breath control data.  
BREATH MINIMUM EFFECT
Kit Auxiliary Short Cut = # 20
Parameters = 00-127
