This advanced instrument design course, by Scott Freiman, gives you the knowledge to unleash the programming power in Native Instruments' Kontakt. Learn how to create the Kontakt instrument you've always dreamed of!
In Scott’s previous course you saw how to build basic, sample instruments. In this course, you learn how make those simple, sample-based instruments really rock! That's because Scott opens up Kontakt’s amazing toolkit to reveal a remarkable set of “kustom" tools you can deploy to enhance, control and add life to those instruments.
You first learn Kontakt's signal flow and it’s array of advanced playback modes. Scott then takes you through Kontakt’s Beat, Time and Tone Machines. You get inside info on Speed Control, the Amplifier Module and how to create sound-enhancing FX sends and returns. OK, here come the modulators (and Kontakt is loaded with them)! These modulators include envelopes, sequencers, envelope followers and glide, along with an unlimited set of external sources too! Along with the FX, these mods can be assigned, at will, to add realism to your samples or to create wild, out-of-control, insane sonic universes!
When you combine all these powerful tools together with your original samples, what you get is the ability to create any kind of “kustom” instrument you can dream up! So boot up Kontakt, then sit back and watch this great Scott Freiman course to learn how to build your very own advanced Kontakt instruments!

That really helped me to get a grip on that complex tool. Great Job!

Excellent Native Instruments Kontakt sampler course by Scott Freiman. I really learned a lot form these tutorials, especially signal flow inside Kontakt.

Fantastic course, and absolutely informative. I learnt quite a lot, and also quite a few new tricks to try out in my productions.

Another great Kontakt tut by Scott Freiman. I especially appreciate the sections clarifying Kontakt 5's busses, fx sends and overall signal flow and signal flow-related issues - something I had previously found a bit confusing.
Scott: I'd LOVE a detailed multi-level course on Kontakt scripting! As a musician/producer with some Kontakt instrument-building aspirations this would be invaluable!!!

Best tutorial I've watched on Kontakt 5 to date! Lot of power user tools explained here!
