Pearl just released its latest REDbox firmware update V2. This highly anticipated firmware update completely revamps the entire Pearl Redbox trigger settings and kit programs. All kits have been update sonically via EQ-ing, panning and FX tweaking. Not only that, but Pearl has added 50 more kits to the Redbox module making the total kit count 150 kits (and there is still space for 50 user kits!).
One of the great things about this update is the fact that all kits now use the pitch to velocity function. If you are an Alesis DM10 owner and have been visiting DMdrummer.com, you have known for the last couple years just how pitch to velocity function really adds a sense of realism that was missing form the stock Alesis DM10 (and Pearl Redbox) sounds. Now it would seem that Pearl has taken a cue from DMdrummer.com and has decided to incorporate the same technique into their Redbox drum kit sounds.
