A keyboard percussion controller gives you sound without limits.
The MalletKAT Express incorporates the same FSR technology as all of the KAT instruments, delivering superb feel and response. The MalletKAT comes with 127 factory setups designed to work with general MIDI sound modules and 127 programmable user setups and features like splitting, layering, poly/mono, "hang" modes and more. It's an expressive and powerful alternative to traditional marimba and vibraphone instruments. All MalletKAT 8.5 User Kits are preprogrammed for the GigKAT2 Module for instant turn key operation. It can also be modified by the user.
The GigKAT2 has 256 voices of polyphony and can play simultaneously on all 16 MIDI Channels. Leave the computer behind and call up the User Kit on the MalletKAT instead. Included in the sound set are many vibes, marimbas, timpani, steel pan, chimes, bells, xylophone, crotales and orchestral and Latin hand percussion and drum sets. The GigKAT2 also provides hundreds of non-percussion sounds, like pianos, basses, guitars, strings, horns, organs and electric pianos.
