The VibeKAT contains all of the expression and dynamics of the legendary MalletKAT, but now offers an entirely new simplified interface.
The concept of the VibeKAT is that each of its 100 User Kits are completely preprogrammed to work solely with the Ketron SD1000 sound module. Features like dampening and layering no longer need to be assigned. The user does not have to program any parameters in order to perform.
The VibeKAT performs similarly to the MalletKAT and offers many of the same global settings to tailor your style of playing - including pad training, thresholds, and velocity curves.
However, keeping the interface of the VibeKAT as simple as possible also means that many user kit settings and parameters are not accessible.The kit settings of the VibeKAT is limited to:
We feel that this simplified interface is perfect for those who are not interested in programming. However, if you decide later that you want the full feature set offered by the MalletKAT, an upgrade chip is available in our online store.
In the next few months, we will be transitioning the powder coating metal and sensor overlays of our malletKAT, vibeKAT and trapKAT products to a new, bright white body.
This beautiful and contemporary look is further enhanced by also including a solid black nylon coating atop of the pads. This coating is not just aesthetic, but provides additional protection of the pads from the sun, rain, and general abuses.
