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 be coming next in what we know will be the best Kontakt kourse kollection on the planet!

Great course with useful insight, particularly in building your own instruments!

If you are working with kontakt, it's very wise to watch this tutorial to get a better understanding of how it works. It's a very powerfull program and after watching this tutorial it's easy to create your own Kontakt instruments. Very good course!

If you're new to Kontakt I'd suggest you watch Matt's "Exploring Kontakt" tutorial before watching this one... lots of great info in here.

Man, i know so much and so little at the same time right now. So much more than i knew yesterday and so little in comparison to what i'll know after i've applied these courses to how i'll use Kontakt. I really love the 6 tutorials in the "Using Instruments to their Fullest" chapter. I think a lot of people would revisit these engines if they thought of them the way you've explained. I've gotta go make some music right now, be back for more courses tonight!

Great follow up to 'Exploring Kontakt 5' by Matt Vanacoro. Matt delves deeper into Kontakt 5 in this comprehensive and interesting course.

It was informative and fun. I enjoyed it. I guess one way to improve it would be including demonstrations on making songs with the concepts presented.

These courses are a great way to decide what software to buy. With the cost of quality software studying these courses will certainly help you decide where & in what order to spend what budget you have on what will give you the best return for your outlay as adverts do not give enough details for a decision on what & in which order to part with your pocket money. I hate demos as they tend to leave crap in your machine if you decide they are not for you. This software looks great - I want it.

I took a synthesis course in college and learned how to use this program there. However, it had been a few years and I forgot a lot. This was a great course and know I am able to take the samples I have created and play them like an instrument.

Really nice intro to Kontakt 5. Previously the app was tough for me to navigate through so much that I avoided it. Not now. Thx.
