Product Summary

I could set DP's buffer size as low as 128 samples when using Kit A in real time. Unfortunately, I couldn't load more than 1.6 GB of Kit A samples into RAM without crashing Kontakt Player 2 and DP. The full-featured Kontakt V. 3.02 easily loaded and played Kit A Multis and provided access to slightly more RAM. Using a beta version of Kontakt 3.5, I could load a 2.17GB kit without a hiccup.


Kit A's learning curve is steep, but the many video tutorials included are a great help. This package is one of the very best-sounding virtual drummers I've heard to date. Prepare to be totally blown away.
