Messing around with the Kontakt demo

Post by J.w.M. » Tue May 13, 2008 11:44 pm

Here's a song that I put together using the Kontakt demo, some Alesis Micron, and no modular. You'll hear Sonniccouture's Mbira sample set used heavily. Lots of delay effects, too. So, without further ado, The Unilluminated:

How do you like working with Kontakt?
Is it intuitive?

Well... Keep in mind that I'm not very experienced with it at all, so this is just coming from me as a total Kontakt n00b...

Still, I found it easy to pick up and use, with superb samples included in the demo. Importing new samples and mapping them to keys is straightforward... Other aspects (such as creating envelopes controls and other custom settings) are less so, but given all of the power available, it seems to be reasonably intuitive.

Download the demo and give it a shot-- it has limited runtime and won't let you save, but beyond that it seems full-featured (though it only includes a few sample packs, one of which is an obnoxious bagpipe thing).

Thanks, Kwote-- I had tons of fun messing around with different automation parameters on the delay effect. When used to a much lesser degree than I did here, I think it would be a good way to spice up a loop too keep things from sounding too repetitive.
