Native Instruments KONTAKT 4 [VSTi]
4-я версия VSTi семплера с богатыми возможностями от Native Instruments.
With version 4, KONTAKT enhances its position as the professional's
sampler of choice. Building on the outstanding features of the previous
versions, including the unrivaled audio engine and state-of-the-art
semi-modular architecture, KONTAKT 4 delivers new sonic horizons for
your music. An expanded sound collection connects you to an immense
number of instruments, and the new Authentic Expression Technology
(AET) is at the cutting-edge of dynamic and true instrument simulation.
KONTAKT 4 offers endless possibilities to really get inside your
samples. You can easily edit, loop, slice and time-stretch your sounds
and pitch shift them in real time or tempo-sync them with the powerful
Wave Editor. Draw your own custom envelopes directly into the sample
waveform to easily and precisely modulate any parameter, or use step
sequencers and flex envelopes to tweak your samples. Refine your sound
even further with any of the 19 versatile studio-quality effects such
as the convolution effect for super-realistic reverbs, or use the
powerful surround sound features for cinematic productions.
New features of Kontakt 4:
* The new
Authentic Expression Technology sees KONTAKT 4 radically redefining the
authentic reproduction of acoustic instruments with all their dynamics
and articulations, while adding completely new options for creative
sound design. In addition to the traditional way of sampling different
volume levels of an instrument statically, AET is able to capture
specific spectral characteristics of samples and gradually apply them
to another samples in real-time, allowing you to seamlessly “morph”
between different instruments' characteristics. This breakthrough
allows for a new level in expression and realism when playing a sampled
AET is especially powerful applied to solo instruments
with sustained sounds - such as strings, brass, woodwinds, and choir:
You can hold down a key and then seamlessly fade with the Mod Wheel
between different articulations (e.g. trumpet playing with and without
mute) or volume/dynamic levels with different harmonics.
often possible to merge the acoustic characteristics of different
instrument such as the piano and celesta in real time, opening new
horizons for creative sampling and new kinds of hybrid instruments.
KONTAKT 4 comes with more than 300 new and professionally recorded
impulse responses from a wide rang of rooms, concert halls, churches,
speakers etc, to add super-realistic reverbs to your instruments or the
sonic characteristics of high-quality hardware equipment (amps,
speakers, hardware reverbs etc.).
The new impluse response samples are provided by Echochamber, Studiodevices and Acousticas.
PERFORMANCE VIEWS provide custom control panels, that make
Instrument-specific settings available without having to switch to Edit
mode. In KONTAKT 4, a much larger control panel is available so each
instrument has more important parameters accessible, as well as giving
each instrument a distinctive feel through the easy-on-the-eye graphics.
The enhanced KONTAKT Script Processor gives many more options for
designing custom Performance Views and for controlling other KONTAKT
areas such as the master section (when writing 'multi scripts').
It's never been easier to find the right sound or instrument. With the
attribute-based browser you can search via keywords or browse by
instrument type (bass, piano, strings).
The complete KONTAKT
4 library has been pre-tagged for your convenience. You can also create
custom attributes to tag your instruments according to your own
Attribute-based browsing works for Instruments, Multis, Banks, Groups, Presets, and Samples.
New Lossless Sample Compression format 'NCW' with real-time encoding –
reducing the size of samples by up to 50%. Instruments with high disk
streaming load, such as Grand Pianos, benefit from the fact that less
data has to be read from hard disk. Note that the complete KONTAKT
library is delivered in uncompressed WAV format - the Lossless Sample
Compression is just an option for your choice when you save instruments.
