MIDI KITI Pro


 

OVERVIEW
The midiKITI Pro is the most powerful trigger to MIDI converter on the
market. Designed for drummers who need professional features and
reliability, the midiKITI Pro is the only serious unit available for acoustic
drum triggering or pad triggering. The midiKITI Pro features nine
external trigger inputs for pads or triggers. With four notes per trigger,
you can layer, crossfade, or even alternate sounds at the touch of a
button. Its "Auto Train" feature allows quick and easy setup of MIDI
channel, note channel, dynamic range, and many other parameters.
The midiKITI's new live pattern generator can add dimension to your
solos, or can simply be used as an ncredible practice device at home.
The midiKITI Pro has all of the high level triggering features needed by
today's top professionals.

KEY FEATURES

AUTO TRAINING modes allow easy setup of:

MIDI CHANNEL and MIDI NOTE simply by pressing your
drum machine button.
GAIN for trigger signal simply by hitting the drum or pad.
TRIGGER ENVELOPE and personal dynamic range simply
with a soft and a hard hit.
INTERACTION Groupings simply by hitting the drum or
pad.

Trigger Inputs respond to electronic triggers, acoustic triggers,
and drum mics because of intelligent use of the Trigger Envelope
from AUTO TRAIN.

PEAK VIEW allows bar-graph viewing of trigger signal strength.

All Trigger Inputs are totally independent, each with:

16 levels of GAIN.
64 steps of personal DYNAMIC RANGE, variable
THRESHOLDS, MASK TIMES, and HEADROOMS.

SCAN TIME selects MIDI processing time from 1.5 to 8
milliseconds.

INTERACTION Suppression eliminates cross triggering from one
trigger to another.

16 MIDI KITs have the following independent MIDI settings for all
of the 9 triggers for each KIT:

MIDI CHANNEL (1-16)
MIDI NOTE (1-128)
MINIMUM VELOCITY (0- 120)
MAXIMUM VELOCITY (8-127)
VELOCITY CURVE (feel) (1-16)
GATE TIME (0 - 6.3 seconds, in .025 sec steps and
infinite)

Each Midi KIT can send out a PROGRAM CHANGE to select
sounds on your sound source.
Data Dumping through MIDI to save settings on a data disk or a
computer librarian.

ADDITIONAL PRO FEATURES

Each trigger input can play up to 4 notes in 16 different modes.
Modes include Multiple (Simultaneous) Velocity cross-fade and
Alternating.

New INTERACTION MATRIX allows pads that interact to be
grouped automatically without affecting the other pads not
involved.

An additional jack for a Hi-Hat mode controlled by a footswitch.
(Three sounds available)
