Is there a still limit of 200mb per kit with firmware v1.5?

It's my understanding that the 200mb per kit limit is a hardware limit and not a software limit.

Quite honestly 200mb per kit isn't bad. The original Alesis DM10 from 2009 (the module that the Strike replaced) only had 128mb for the whole module! So 200mb per kit is a huge bump in size per kit.

Only the top end modules have 200mb per kit or more. Any module cheaper than the Strike will have only about 64-128mb for the whole module.

Of the top end modules the Strike most likely has the smallest per kit size, but it is still a heck of a a lot larger than any of the lesser modules out there. And also you can put your own multi layered samples in the Strike module. The only other module that I know does this is the 2Box modules (I think the new Yamaha and possibly the Pearl Mimic might as well, I know it is a feature that is at least going to be added at some point if it isn't already available for those).
