    NEW PRO EFFECTS

    SOLID G-EQ*
    An authentic re-interpretation of a classic studio effect— a uniquely clean and musical 4-band EQ switchable to shelf on the low and high bands, plus two full parametric mid-bands.

    SOLID BUS COMP*
    Also available as a fully-fledged product in its own right, this virtual reproduction of a legendary compressor adds presence and drive without blurring the detail. Though traditionally used to "glue a mix together", it's not just for bus compression!

    TRANSIENT MASTER*
    Another premium-grade effect, also available separately — TRANSIENT MASTER is an incredibly musical and versatile tool for re-shaping any kind of percussive sound. Make a sound hit harder, or shorten the resonance tail of a sound that rings too long. Bring instruments to the front of the mix or smooth out spikiness.

    TAPE SATURATOR
    By simulating the natural, harmonic compression of analog tape, the TAPE SATURATOR adds a pleasing warmth to your sound. And pushed a little harder, it delivers a smooth, organic overdrive.

    * These pro-league effects are also available as fully fledged individual products - but you have them already included here in KONTAKT 5.


    37 NEW FILTERS

    KONTAKT 5 enhances your creative sound design palette with 37 new, high-quality filters, developed by the creative mastermind behind MASSIVE. The range covers the whole spectrum from classic state variable low-pass filters to avant-garde formant filters, and nine of the new additions employ groundbreaking adaptive resonance technology. These 'AR' filters manage resonance peaks automatically — like an intelligent limiter inside the instrument — to avoid sudden harshness, unpleasant volume bursts, and unwanted distortion.

    VINTAGE SAMPLING MODES

    KONTAKT 5 offers vintage sample modes, straight from the MPC school of beatmaking. These re-create the unique sound and feel of the MPC60 and the SP1200, and are authentic enough to bring a nostalgic tear to the eyes of veteran beatheads everywhere. The algorithms used come from MASCHINE.

    ADVANCED TIME-STRETCHING

    An important addition in KONTAKT 5 is the new Time Machine Pro algorithm, providing super-high-quality time-stretching — particularly suited to melodic and tonal material. Use Time Machine Pro for complete audio fidelity and imperceptible tempo-changes with all harmonic content intact.

    FEATURES FOR BUILDERS

    16 CHANNEL BUS SYSTEM
    The new 16- bus system introduces comprehensive routing options with integrated insert and send effects. This is a powerful tool for creating detailed effects chains within an instrument. For example, when building a drum kit, you might want to use completely different effects on the kick, toms and snare, while still sending the whole kit to a stereo master channel. Now you can.

    MIDI FILE SUPPORT
    KONTAKT 5 provides a new feature in the Kontakt Script Processor: the MIDI file player. Useful for creating instruments that can play patterns, loops and grooves as opposed to single notes. As used in STUDIO DRUMMER's groove library, which provides over 3,500 exclusive beats and fills as production-ready MIDI patterns.


    RETRO MACHINES MK2 INCLUDED

    Customers who buy KONTAKT 5, or update / cross-grade to KONTAKT 5, are eligible for a free copy of RETRO MACHINES MK 2. You'll receive this collection of 16 definitive analog synthesizers and keyboards once you have registered KONTAKT 5 - we'll send you a download link for your free copy.

  • New Authentic Expression Technology (AET)

  • The new Authentic Expression Technology sees KONTAKT 4 radically redefining the authentic reproduction of acoustic instruments with all their dynamics and articulations, while adding completely new options for creative sound design. In addition to the traditional way of sampling different volume levels of an instrument statically, AET is able to capture specific spectral characteristics of samples and gradually apply them to another samples in real-time, allowing you to seamlessly "morph" between different instruments' characteristics. This breakthrough allows for a new level in expression and realism when playing a sampled instrument.
    AET is especially powerful applied to solo instruments with sustained sounds - such as strings, brass, woodwinds, and choir: You can hold down a key and then seamlessly fade with the Mod Wheel between different articulations (e.g. trumpet playing with and without mute) or volume/dynamic levels with different harmonics.
    It's often possible to merge the acoustic characteristics of different instrument such as the piano and celesta in real time, opening new horizons for creative sampling and new kinds of hybrid instruments.


  • Expanded sound library: + 10 GB

  • In addition to the six collections available in the previous version, KONTAKT 4 now includes a comprehensive Choir Collection, recorded exclusively for Native Instruments, providing a complete set of soprano, alto, tenor and bass voices in different setups.

    Several instruments of the Choir Collection makes use of the new Authentic Expression Technology giving you a new level of control: the choir voices can seamlessly morph the vowels ("A-E-I-O-U") while holding a key/note, which is nearly impossible with other samplers.

    In addition, the Orchestral Collection has been updated with a new Solo Strings section, taken form the legendary Vienna Symphonic Library, and a concert hall organ, while the Vintage collection gets the famed Mellotron keyboard. Plus, all the e-pianos from ELEKTRIK PIANO are included.

    All in all, an extra 10 Gigabytes of new material enrich the KONTAKT library.


  • Expanded Convolution Effect Library

  • KONTAKT 4 comes with more than 300 new and professionally recorded impulse responses from a wide rang of rooms, concert halls, churches, speakers etc, to add super-realistic reverbs to your instruments or the sonic characteristics of high-quality hardware equipment (amps, speakers, hardware reverbs etc.).

    The new impluse response samples are provided by Echochamber, Studiodevices and Acousticas.


  • Improved Performance Views per instrument

  • PERFORMANCE VIEWS provide custom control panels, that make Instrument-specific settings available without having to switch to Edit mode. In KONTAKT 4, a much larger control panel is available so each instrument has more important parameters accessible, as well as giving each instrument a distinctive feel through the easy-on-the-eye graphics.


  • Advanced Script Processor

  • The enhanced KONTAKT Script Processor gives many more options for designing custom Performance Views and for controlling other KONTAKT areas such as the master section (when writing 'multi scripts').


  • New attribute-based browser and pre-tagged library

  • It's never been easier to find the right sound or instrument. With the attribute-based browser you can search via keywords or browse by instrument type (bass, piano, strings).

    The complete KONTAKT 4 library has been pre-tagged for your convenience. You can also create custom attributes to tag your instruments according to your own criteria.

    Attribute-based browsing works for Instruments, Multis, Banks, Groups, Presets, and Samples.


  • Lossless Sample Compression

  • New Lossless Sample Compression format 'NCW' with real-time encoding – reducing the size of samples by up to 50%. Instruments with high disk streaming load, such as Grand Pianos, benefit from the fact that less data has to be read from hard disk. Note that the complete KONTAKT library is delivered in uncompressed WAV format - the Lossless Sample Compression is just an option for your choice when you save instruments.


  • Various Improvements

  • Last but not least, KONTAKT 4 includes all the powerful improvements from the comprehensive KONTAKT 3.5 update
    Kontakt v 3.5 17 juil. 2009 MacOS X UB
  • Extended Memory Addressing

  • KONTAKT 3.5 features full support for 64-bit memory addressing in both Windows and Mac OS X. This means you can load more than 4 GB samples into RAM in both stand-alone and plug-in mode. In Windows, 64-bit operating systems and sequencers with special stand-alone and VST versions are now supported. On Mac, the newly-created Memory Server feature bypasses the OS X's 4 GB limit and can address as much RAM as you have installed - even in 32-bit hosts such as Logic or ProTools.

  • Enhanced Sampling Engine

  • KONTAKT 3.5 features a completely re-designed sample playback engine. The Direct From Disk mode has been reworked to act dynamically, allowing the operating system to allocate memory in real time as you play and release voices. The result is a significantly smaller memory footprint which leaves more RAM for loading samples. This is especially useful with 32-bit systems where you can now load significantly more samples than was previously possible.

  • Multi-processor support

  • KONTAKT 3.5 now provides true multi-processor / multi-core support. You can now switch multi-processor support on and off and set the number of processors / cores you want to use for KONTAKT. Up to 16 cores are now supported.

  • Direct MIDI Learn

  • KONTAKT 3.5 now features MIDI Learn function for all sliders and knobs including Performance Views. Assigning MIDI controllers to KONTAKT sliders and knobs is quick and convenient with multiple assignments also possible.

  • Enhanced Library Management

  • KONTAKT 3.5 integrates a visually enhanced library tab that now makes browsing and loading samples and libraries quicker and easier.

  • Various Improvements

  • Further improvements in KONTAKT 3.5 include a bypass button for effect slots, localized info pane in six languages, improved automapping, Pro Tools compatibility under Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, aftertouch interpretation added to KSP, a Play cursor for Beat Machine mode in Wave Editor and enhanced REX file support.

    NEW PRO EFFECTS

    SOLID G-EQ*
    An authentic re-interpretation of a classic studio effect— a uniquely clean and musical 4-band EQ switchable to shelf on the low and high bands, plus two full parametric mid-bands.

    SOLID BUS COMP*
    Also available as a fully-fledged product in its own right, this virtual reproduction of a legendary compressor adds presence and drive without blurring the detail. Though traditionally used to "glue a mix together", it's not just for bus compression!

    TRANSIENT MASTER*
    Another premium-grade effect, also available separately — TRANSIENT MASTER is an incredibly musical and versatile tool for re-shaping any kind of percussive sound. Make a sound hit harder, or shorten the resonance tail of a sound that rings too long. Bring instruments to the front of the mix or smooth out spikiness.

    TAPE SATURATOR
    By simulating the natural, harmonic compression of analog tape, the TAPE SATURATOR adds a pleasing warmth to your sound. And pushed a little harder, it delivers a smooth, organic overdrive.

    * These pro-league effects are also available as fully fledged individual products - but you have them already included here in KONTAKT 5.


    37 NEW FILTERS

    KONTAKT 5 enhances your creative sound design palette with 37 new, high-quality filters, developed by the creative mastermind behind MASSIVE. The range covers the whole spectrum from classic state variable low-pass filters to avant-garde formant filters, and nine of the new additions employ groundbreaking adaptive resonance technology. These 'AR' filters manage resonance peaks automatically — like an intelligent limiter inside the instrument — to avoid sudden harshness, unpleasant volume bursts, and unwanted distortion.

    VINTAGE SAMPLING MODES

    KONTAKT 5 offers vintage sample modes, straight from the MPC school of beatmaking. These re-create the unique sound and feel of the MPC60 and the SP1200, and are authentic enough to bring a nostalgic tear to the eyes of veteran beatheads everywhere. The algorithms used come from MASCHINE.

    ADVANCED TIME-STRETCHING

    An important addition in KONTAKT 5 is the new Time Machine Pro algorithm, providing super-high-quality time-stretching — particularly suited to melodic and tonal material. Use Time Machine Pro for complete audio fidelity and imperceptible tempo-changes with all harmonic content intact.

    FEATURES FOR BUILDERS

    16 CHANNEL BUS SYSTEM
    The new 16- bus system introduces comprehensive routing options with integrated insert and send effects. This is a powerful tool for creating detailed effects chains within an instrument. For example, when building a drum kit, you might want to use completely different effects on the kick, toms and snare, while still sending the whole kit to a stereo master channel. Now you can.

    MIDI FILE SUPPORT
    KONTAKT 5 provides a new feature in the Kontakt Script Processor: the MIDI file player. Useful for creating instruments that can play patterns, loops and grooves as opposed to single notes. As used in STUDIO DRUMMER's groove library, which provides over 3,500 exclusive beats and fills as production-ready MIDI patterns.


    RETRO MACHINES MK2 INCLUDED

    Customers who buy KONTAKT 5, or update / cross-grade to KONTAKT 5, are eligible for a free copy of RETRO MACHINES MK 2. You'll receive this collection of 16 definitive analog synthesizers and keyboards once you have registered KONTAKT 5 - we'll send you a download link for your free copy.

  • New Authentic Expression Technology (AET)

  • The new Authentic Expression Technology sees KONTAKT 4 radically redefining the authentic reproduction of acoustic instruments with all their dynamics and articulations, while adding completely new options for creative sound design. In addition to the traditional way of sampling different volume levels of an instrument statically, AET is able to capture specific spectral characteristics of samples and gradually apply them to another samples in real-time, allowing you to seamlessly "morph" between different instruments' characteristics. This breakthrough allows for a new level in expression and realism when playing a sampled instrument.
    AET is especially powerful applied to solo instruments with sustained sounds - such as strings, brass, woodwinds, and choir: You can hold down a key and then seamlessly fade with the Mod Wheel between different articulations (e.g. trumpet playing with and without mute) or volume/dynamic levels with different harmonics.
    It's often possible to merge the acoustic characteristics of different instrument such as the piano and celesta in real time, opening new horizons for creative sampling and new kinds of hybrid instruments.


  • Expanded sound library: + 10 GB

  • In addition to the six collections available in the previous version, KONTAKT 4 now includes a comprehensive Choir Collection, recorded exclusively for Native Instruments, providing a complete set of soprano, alto, tenor and bass voices in different setups.

    Several instruments of the Choir Collection makes use of the new Authentic Expression Technology giving you a new level of control: the choir voices can seamlessly morph the vowels ("A-E-I-O-U") while holding a key/note, which is nearly impossible with other samplers.

    In addition, the Orchestral Collection has been updated with a new Solo Strings section, taken form the legendary Vienna Symphonic Library, and a concert hall organ, while the Vintage collection gets the famed Mellotron keyboard. Plus, all the e-pianos from ELEKTRIK PIANO are included.

    All in all, an extra 10 Gigabytes of new material enrich the KONTAKT library.


  • Expanded Convolution Effect Library

  • KONTAKT 4 comes with more than 300 new and professionally recorded impulse responses from a wide rang of rooms, concert halls, churches, speakers etc, to add super-realistic reverbs to your instruments or the sonic characteristics of high-quality hardware equipment (amps, speakers, hardware reverbs etc.).

    The new impluse response samples are provided by Echochamber, Studiodevices and Acousticas.


  • Improved Performance Views per instrument

  • PERFORMANCE VIEWS provide custom control panels, that make Instrument-specific settings available without having to switch to Edit mode. In KONTAKT 4, a much larger control panel is available so each instrument has more important parameters accessible, as well as giving each instrument a distinctive feel through the easy-on-the-eye graphics.


  • Advanced Script Processor

  • The enhanced KONTAKT Script Processor gives many more options for designing custom Performance Views and for controlling other KONTAKT areas such as the master section (when writing 'multi scripts').


  • New attribute-based browser and pre-tagged library

  • It's never been easier to find the right sound or instrument. With the attribute-based browser you can search via keywords or browse by instrument type (bass, piano, strings).

    The complete KONTAKT 4 library has been pre-tagged for your convenience. You can also create custom attributes to tag your instruments according to your own criteria.

    Attribute-based browsing works for Instruments, Multis, Banks, Groups, Presets, and Samples.


  • Lossless Sample Compression

  • New Lossless Sample Compression format 'NCW' with real-time encoding – reducing the size of samples by up to 50%. Instruments with high disk streaming load, such as Grand Pianos, benefit from the fact that less data has to be read from hard disk. Note that the complete KONTAKT library is delivered in uncompressed WAV format - the Lossless Sample Compression is just an option for your choice when you save instruments.


  • Various Improvements

  • Last but not least, KONTAKT 4 includes all the powerful improvements from the comprehensive KONTAKT 3.5 update
    Kontakt v 3.5 17 juil. 2009 Windows
  • Extended Memory Addressing

  • KONTAKT 3.5 features full support for 64-bit memory addressing in both Windows and Mac OS X. This means you can load more than 4 GB samples into RAM in both stand-alone and plug-in mode. In Windows, 64-bit operating systems and sequencers with special stand-alone and VST versions are now supported. On Mac, the newly-created Memory Server feature bypasses the OS X's 4 GB limit and can address as much RAM as you have installed - even in 32-bit hosts such as Logic or ProTools.

  • Enhanced Sampling Engine

  • KONTAKT 3.5 features a completely re-designed sample playback engine. The Direct From Disk mode has been reworked to act dynamically, allowing the operating system to allocate memory in real time as you play and release voices. The result is a significantly smaller memory footprint which leaves more RAM for loading samples. This is especially useful with 32-bit systems where you can now load significantly more samples than was previously possible.

  • Multi-processor support

  • KONTAKT 3.5 now provides true multi-processor / multi-core support. You can now switch multi-processor support on and off and set the number of processors / cores you want to use for KONTAKT. Up to 16 cores are now supported.

  • Direct MIDI Learn

  • KONTAKT 3.5 now features MIDI Learn function for all sliders and knobs including Performance Views. Assigning MIDI controllers to KONTAKT sliders and knobs is quick and convenient with multiple assignments also possible.

  • Enhanced Library Management

  • KONTAKT 3.5 integrates a visually enhanced library tab that now makes browsing and loading samples and libraries quicker and easier.

  • Various Improvements

  • Further improvements in KONTAKT 3.5 include a bypass button for effect slots, localized info pane in six languages, improved automapping, Pro Tools compatibility under Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, aftertouch interpretation added to KSP, a Play cursor for Beat Machine mode in Wave Editor and enhanced REX file support.

    version 3.0.1, MacOS X UB
    J'ai toujours été plus "synthé" que "sampling". Du coup, je viens un peu tardivement aux joies de l'échantillonneur virtuel et sans avoir connu celles des sampleurs virtuels.
    A réception, j'ai été un peu déçu par le rapport : Place sur le DD/ et nbre de patches de samples offert par Kontakt... (notamment une joie bien moindre qu'à réception de Reaktor qui offre immédiatement un terrain de jeu infini...).
    Puis progressivement à l'utilisation j'ai mieux apprécié la qualité des sons et les possibilités d'édition de ce logiciel qui sont très riches (modulation, effets et combinaison... ) . Finalement, c'est un excellent outil. Le mode d'emploi est d'une taille raisonnable et la prise en main n'est pas ultra difficile. Et l'ergonomie/convivialité de cette V3 est tout à fait convenable (en regard de ce que disaient les utilisateurs des premières versions réputées un peu plus spartiates).
    Utilisé sans pb avec GB en AU sur un macbook intel et 4 Go de ram.

    Je n'ai pas connu Kontakt dès ses débuts. Prise en mains depuis +- 3ans. L'interface a gagné en convivialité. Mon avis rejoint celui de Ptilou, pour l'ensemble. Par contre, il ne faut pas s'attendre à une qualité exceptionnelle pour tous les sons. Et je le trouve un peu maigre dans sa banque de sons "synthé", ceux-ci proposant des réglages minimalistes. Mais bon, pour plus il faut se tourner vers les autres produits de la marque.
