THREE NEW INSTRUMENTS

KONTAKT 6 introduces the KONTAKT Play Series: New twists on sought-after sounds. Each places powerful, creative processing chains into a simple, intuitive interface. These hybrid instruments combine wavetable synthesis with creatively sampled content, allowing dynamic live blending and sound sculpting.

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.

A powerful instrument featuring legendary analog and digital synths of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

POWERING SAMPLED INSTRUMENTS

KONTAKT is a host for hundreds of highly realistic and detailed sampled instruments. And because it’s the most widely-used host platform, you’ve probably already heard KONTAKT – on chart-topping pop and club smashes, hit TV shows, and blockbuster movies.

As well as our own KONTAKT instruments, there are currently around 600 licensed instruments from other manufacturers that run in KONTAKT, plus thousands more so-called ‘indie’ instruments. This diverse ecosystem means that KONTAKT 6 is your access point to the industry’s biggest collection of playable sampled sound.

ABOUT THE KONTAKT ECOSYSTEM

BUILDING INSTRUMENTS IN KONTAKT

KONTAKT is a playground for working creatively with samples. Whether you’re creating a specific sound for a track, or building a complex multi-sampled instrument, the tools you need to do it are right in front of you: Flexible editors, seven playback modes, built-in effects, and an advanced scripting language for going in deep.

KONTAKT 6 also introduces Creator Tools, a standalone application that radically streamlines and improves the instrument creation process. It includes tools like a multi-instance Debugger, an Instrument Editor and a GUI Designer.

MORE ABOUT BUILDING

HARDWARE INTEGRATION

KONTAKT is fully NKS compatible, meaning both our own instruments and those of many third-party partners allow instant audio previews of patterns and sounds, powerful tag-based preset searching, pre-mapping of key controls, and more.

KONTAKT also works seamlessly with the Light Guide on KOMPLETE KONTROL S-SERIES keyboards for one-to-one visual feedback. Access extended performance controls such as articulations (slide on a guitar instrument or mute on brass, for example), pattern switches, key splits, and more.
