So sit back and learn to get "kreative" with Native Instruments Kontakt in this course by trainer and Kontakt expert Matt Vanacoro!
This course is well-designed. It assumes no prior knowledge of the subject, but is mature and straightforward in its presentation of sometimes complex material. I found it easy to absorb the explanations and to put into practice what I had learned.

This was a well laid out, well narrated course. It just scratches the surface, but it helped me to dare to dive in the rest for myself, while if I hadn't followed this course, I wouldn't have explored it all on my own. Cudo's.

This course helped me to move from the vision of Kontact as just a tool to playback packaged libraries to an actual instrument and environnement for sound creation. Great.
