POWERING NATIVE INSTRUMENTS PRODUCTS

KONTAKT is the driving force behind a huge range of Native Instruments products. From the exacting detail of the SYMPHONY SERIES, the epic percussion of DAMAGE, the cutting-edge sound design of RISE & HIT, and so much more, KONTAKT’s powerful sound engine and advanced scripting have built Native Instruments’ reputation as a leading sample instrument manufacturer.

And because these instruments were built by the same people that made the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-SERIES keyboards and MASCHINE hardware, their integration with NI hardware creates one unified playing experience.

A HOST FOR THIRD-PARTY INSTRUMENTS

KONTAKT also hosts thousands of sample instruments from hundreds of top builders – each representing a unique vision of sample instrument design. Many of these instruments were made for the free KONTAKT PLAYER – you don't need the full version of KONTAKT to use them.

A PERFECT MATCH

Many third-party sample instruments also use Native Kontrol Standard® (NKS) – Native Instruments’ extended plug-in format for all virtual instrument developers. NKS allows for intuitive and seamless interaction between plug-in instruments and KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE hardware – definitive integration designed by developers themselves.
