Welcome to KONTAKT 2
KONTAKT 2 continues the tradition of sampling excellence that began with KONTAKT 1.0. This latest version offers surround support with surround panning, more effects (and more places to put them in the signal path), a script processor that adds intelligent MIDI processing to increase an instrument’s power, support for up to 64 instruments, wide-ranging file compatibility, enhanced user interface, output section with insertable effects, a sophisticated database/browser combination that makes it easy to find the sounds and samples you need, and much more.
Of course, KONTAKT 2 retains (and improves upon) popular features like DFD hard disk sample streaming, “flex” envelopes that improve significantly on fixed types, pristine quality audio engine with excellent stretching characteristics, Beat Machine for processing drum samples, and extensive use of drag-and-drop.
But while the specs are impressive, there’s more to an instrument than just technology. KONTAKT 2 is flexible enough to take the place of a variety of other plug-ins, thus streamlining the music-making process. For many musicians, KONTAKT is the first instrument they load into a VST/DXi/AU-compatible host; and for some, it’s the only instrument they need to load. KONTAKT 2 takes this all-in-one concept even further.
For creative sound design, KONTAKT 2 combines the best elements of synthesizers (filters, modulation, multiple envelope types, dynamics control, etc.) with unique sample processing tools like the innovative Tone Machine, Time Machine, and Beat Machine. Yet all of these are presented clearly, without hidden menus, using an aesthetically pleasing interface that doesn’t interfere with the music-making process.
Finally, we would like to thank those of you who have purchased previous versions of KONTAKT, and given us the feedback needed to take it to the next level. It is your support that makes all this possible, but we never take it for granted - we strive constantly to improve your musical tools. We are extremely excited to offer you KONTAKT 2, and hope that it helps you realize your musical dreams in an efficient, fun, and inspirational way.
Now go make some great music!
