Kontakt 5 Advanced


0 reviews

Using Kontakt just to play back factory samples is like driving your Audi S5 in 4th gear at 25 mph. Boring! If you want to break the speed of sound, this accelerated course shows you how to put pedal to the metal and squeeze every ounce of horsepower from Native Instruments' supercharged sampler.

OK, enough car analogies: let's downshift to see what makes this course redline! (oops... couldn't help myself.)

Seriously, Kontakt is a tweaker's dream come true. From recording your own samples to creating you own custom instruments, Kontakt does it all! You can even create your own scripts to graphically design your own user interface. Yes, this is one deep sampler that enables you to conceptualize and build instruments that are uniquely yours.

In this first advanced course we handed the keys to the very talented Matt Vanacoro who lifts up the hood and shows you some of the cooler stuff Kontakt can do. You learn all about creating rich multi-instruments and how to extend the power of some of the included patches. From there Matt plunges into advanced sampling techniques, mapping and effects processing.

This course concludes with a sneak peak at scripting as a teaser for what might me coming next in what we know will be the best Kontakt kourse kollection on the planet!
