ATV Sound Tour
In 2022, ATV launched the online Sound Tour application.
Sound Tour is a drum pattern player that demonstrates the great sounds of EXS series kits. Sound Tour was developed so that drummers interested in EXS Series electronic drums can play the various kits using rhythm patterns recorded by ATV artist Katsuhiko Endo. It's a lot of fun!
