KONTAKT 6 is the next generation of the world’s leading sampler. Continuing the development from sampler to sampling platform, KONTAKT has evolved into the host for an encyclopedic range of sampled instruments from countless instrument builders. As a platform, KONTAKT supports the whole music production industry, powering the instruments used by composers and producers, and providing a development framework for instrument builders.

NEW FEATURES FOR BUILDERS

For instrument builders and advanced users who work in the edit view, new possibilities for sound design exist thanks to five new effects – three new reverbs, a Replika delay module, and a wah-wah – plus a new wavetable engine. Creator Tools, a standalone application, rounds off the package. Designed to improve the workflows of library builders and instrument creators, it consists of a Debugger and an Instrument Editor.

NEW EFECTS

Replika Delay: Based on the dedicated Native Instruments plug-in REPLIKA XT, it offers multiple delay modes, each with a vastly different sound character.

Room Reverb: A new high-quality algorithmic room reverb that offers options for real time modulation.
Hall Reverb: Another high-quality algorithmic reverb, tuned for hall sounds.
Plate Reverb: Emulates a plate reverberator for for classic vintage metallic sounds.
Cry Wah: Wah-wah effect module, based on the most popular wah pedal of all time.

WAVETABLE MODULE

The latest version of KONTAKT adds wavetable synthesis to the ever expanding KONTAKT toolset. All three of the new Play Series instruments incorporate this new module, and we’re looking forward to hearing what you create with this powerful new building block.





THREE NEW INSTRUMENTS

For those using KONTAKT mainly as a host for instruments, version 6 expands the on-board library with three new instruments: ANALOG DREAMS invokes legendary synth sounds, ETHEREAL EARTH combines sampled traditional instruments with digital synthesis, and HYBRID KEYS provides a modern digital twist on classic keyboard instruments.

The instruments all feature eight carefully assigned macro controls, corresponding to the eight rotary encoders on our KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE hardware. These controls are mapped to numerous shared parameters behind the scenes, so you can change a sound dramatically with a single twist of a macro knob.
