In this episode of TMS, we’re going to be talking about one of the most versatile plug-ins from heavyweights Native Instruments – Kontakt.
A great plug-in to build your own libraries & also for producers who dive into a lot of sampling. To begin, we simply drag a sample & drop it into the Kontakt window. Open the settings, located on the top left corner & click on the wave editor to work on the tone of the sample.
Next, we explore how the tracking tool helps us map a single note to all keys on the keyboard. You can toggle this on & off with a single button.
From here we dive into mapping samples based on their key or velocity, changing the root key & how to work with multiple samples. We also talk about looping samples & explore a couple of essential samples for a more diverse approach to production.
