a-kit is a set of 7 plugins (plus a registration plugin). These are VST, RTAS et AU compatible. They need 44,1 kHz sessions. These modules, drived by MIDI tracks, produce the sounds of a drum set.

They react on velocitys and strike up instructions (drived by the velocity and the pitchbend MIDI parameters). They are able to add modulation on the velocity and strike up instructions, thanks to their "velocity deviation" and "strike up deviation" parameters included.
All their settings are savable thanks to standards plugins presets.

A 44,1 khz sampler is incorporated in each module of a-kit. Thanks to a large polyphony voices number, you get a more realistic sound on long resonance instruments, such as cymbals and toms.

You get also snare drum's rollings on fast tempos. The total sound bank contains 45 mo of samples, reaching 40 samples an instrument (for snare drum i.e.). So you come more close to sound diversity of real instruments.

Host sequencer that supports RTAS, VST or Audio Units plugins.
