Aurora

I've been using the drumKAT since it's inception in 1988 and I've used it for a lot more than a simple drum triggering device. I've used it as a compositional aid for writing everything from string quartets to pieces for symphony orchestra, as well as New Age and pop music of all kinds as well. I've used just about every feature in my original drumKAT including even some of the more esoteric features like slice mode and alternate mode.

Also I can demo it in a professional studio environment.

Chicago

I am a malletKAT user in Chicago. I've played the malletKAT since 1993 and have become pretty adept at figuring out new ways to use it for live performances.

I use the malletKAT during live musical theatre (when things have GOT to work everytime) and have found its reliability to be absolutely bullletproof.

I also own a MidiKITI, some FatKAT pedals, Dauz pads and a couple racks of equipment and sound sources. For anyone interested in contacting me, have them use this information:

"I live in Pittsburgh, Pa and use the DK10 for my role in Good Night, States (www.goodnightstates.com).  I use it for triggering loops and single shots, and it's currently using a Roland SPD-S as a brain.  I'd be glad to demo it for you and have you try it out, and you'd be welcome to bring your own MIDI brain along.  I've been playing the DK10 since 2009, but have been familiar with triggering loops/shots since 2003."

trapKAT

"I've been playing a trapKAT for a couple of years now and I'm going to be purchasing a drumKAT 4.5 in the next couple of months.
I've used my trapKAT in performance and recording situations using an Alesis D4 and Yamaha a4000 as well as several computer programs such as NI Kontakt 2, Real Guitar (you can do some incredible things with Real Guitar and trapKAT), NI Battery 2, Reason 2.5/3.0 and Cubase SX, among others.

I live in Ringgold, GA (about 90 miles north of Atlanta, right at the Tennesse border by Chattanooga)."
