Sound design, instrument creation, building multi layered patches - all these and much more are possible with Kontakt 6. See how it works in this short video.

Native Instruments' Kontakt has been the go-to sampler instrument workstation for many years, both for people creating their own instruments and for those wanting to access orchestral libraries, sound design tools and much more. And with version 6, it's more powerful than ever. But what are the different things you can do with Kontakt? Sure, it's amazing for playing and tweaking instruments, but it also has a wealth of developer and instrument creation tools that you can use. In this video from the course Kontakt 101: Beginner's Guide, Matt Vanacoro walks you through the various different talents that Kontakt has.

Kontakt 101: Beginner's Guide

Matt begins by explaining that Kontakt can just be an instrument library, whether it's the impressive core library or one of the hundreds of additional Kontakt-format libraries available. These are scripted, meaning you can make all sorts of changes to them. Then there's sound design, which you can do by using multis, layering up and zoning several instruments at the same time - complete with mixing, panning and effects of course.

And naturally there's sampling and instrument generation, with the ability to drag and drop samples into Kontakt's advanced and powerful sample edit and management system, with auto zoning and mapping of samples by pitch and other characteristics, which greatly speeds up the process of creating your own sampled instruments. There's much more on all of this in the full course, so check it out today.
