I think this is trickier than it sounds. How can an ns_kit.dbkit file "stand
on it's own". I don't think it can since you  can't use it without
Doggiebox.  They're intimately linked.

I'm sure there's a solution, but it's not really obvious.

I export as 32 bit float since that's the default working format with
Cubase. Why not keep it the same? If I don't, Cubase goes out of it's way to
"convert" the bit rate.
