1) insert Smartmedia into the triton LE, and navigate to media.
2) open trstr1~1 and load string1.ksc

you can load individual kits by loading the coresponding .KMP file associated with the sounds you wish to load (I.E. If you want to load only the Marcado 1….then navigate through your folders and find MARCA001.kmp and load that file) This way you can mix and match individual .kmp files by loading them seperately and then saving them into one .Ksc file.
