With DKit Manager you can Inspect, edit and make bulk modifications to your .dkit files.

DKit Manager overview

  • Open an existing Kit Bank or start from scratch with 100 empty kits
  • Organize the order of the 100 kits from a Kit Bank using drag-n-drop
  • Import one or several single .dkit in a Kit Bank (if multiple kits are imported they will be added after the current kit)
  • Export one or several single .dkit from a Kit Bank (can be used to split all kits from a Kit Bank to single .dkit files)
  • Preview .dsnd files by double clicking on the list of available .dsnd
  • Preview .dsnd, .wav Song and .dsnd Metronome from a Kit
  • Kit: drag and drop .dsnd and .wav files from your file explorer or from the lists to the Kit and Layout views
  • Kit: edit title, .dsnd, Song and Metronome values using text input fields (missing files are displayed in red)
  • Kit: copy and Paste kits in a Kit Bank
  • Kit: clear one, several or all kits from a Kit Bank

  • Swap: swap all Drum values from one pad to another, for all kits or checked kits (useful to convert the stock DrumIt.dkit to your own layout or if you change your layout)
  • Check: check Kit or Kit Bank for missing .dsnd and .wav files, duplicate and long filenames, unused .dsnd files

Evaluation Version

  • Check a Kit or Kit Bank
  • Edit and save the Kit Layout used by SDSE
  • Set the current Kit Layout to be used by SDSE: select a Layout to set it as the current layout before exporting a Kit or creating a .dkit file with SDSE

Organize your kits

Dkit Manager kit order
Drag and drop kits in the list.
Select one or several kits to export as single .dkit files.
Import one or several single .dkit files at the current kit position.

Drag and Drop .dsnd and .wav files

.dsnd and .wav files can be dropped from the lists on the left of DKit Manager, but also from a file explorer like Windows Explorer. If the file is not contained in a sub-folder or parent folder relative to the Kit Bank you have opened you will be able to edit settings but won't be able to preview the sound.

Missing files displayed in red

DKit Manager displays missing .dsnd and song files in red.
DKit Manager correct filenames
You can copy and paste .dsnd names between input fields (CTRL+C/CTRL+V) and even revert to the previous value (CTRL+Z).

The particular shade of red used in DKit Manager to mark missing files is the "psychological red" as defined by the Natural Color System. NCS is a proprietary perceptual color model published by the Scandinavian Colour Institute (Skandinaviska Färginstitutet AB) of Stockholm, Sweden.

Layout System

Set up your layout to match your kit. You can manage up to 4 Layouts for up to 4 DrumIt Five modules.

DKit Manager Layout system

When saving a Kit Bank the current layout number is saved in the .dkit file. The next time you open your Kit Bank DKit Manager will display the correct Layout.

DKit Manager Layout editor

Edit pads and pad names using the editor. The Layout system is compatible with SDSE
When you export a kit with SDSE it will create a .dkit file that matches the last Layout you have selected in DKit Manager.

DSound Tuner

With DSound Tuner you can make changes to existing .dsnd files.

  • Change the Max Tune
  • Limit the sample length to get smaller files
    Can also be used to remove the noise at the end of some .dsnd files
  • Add a reverb effect

DSound Tuner

Browse or drag and drop one or several .dsnd files, select new settings, click Tune. The new values will be appended to the filenames.
