Kontakt 5?

I've recently been looking at kontakt 5 to be the next addition to my virtual studio. And, since Kontakt is 50% off right now it seems like the high time to get it. But first I'd like to get some opinions here.

What is everyone's experiences with kontakt? Is it worth the price tag?

Thanks!

Re: Kontakt 5?

I've played around with Kontakt 4, a friend who has a studio owns Komplete 7 and recently upgraded to 9. I really like kontakt 4, to me it's user friendly and it comes with really awesome patches. I don't really know much about making your own patches though and I don't know how it would compare to Kontakt 5 though, I suppose it would only be better.

If it's not on special, I just saw it but $100 less than komplete, I don't know about The States, but converting the $200 extra for komplete to my currency would make a serious knock in my budget, but then again I couldn't afford kontakt as is...

Re: Kontakt 5?

Konakt is my sampler of choice since around version 3..5 has many improvements under the hood and some great scripting choices IF you plan on doing you own patches.Some new effects and has become a little more CPU forgiving that past versions.

just my two cents. cheers.

Re: Kontakt 5?

Kontakt 5 is really fantastic. I would recommend it, but you might as well go for Komplete, you'll get a lot more on top of Kontakt. NI has a ton of great plug-ins in that set. I really love the strings in Kontakt and the simplicity of changing the playing techniques and keys, along with their realistic sounds. (That goes for most of the samples in Kontakt quite honestly.)

Re: Kontakt 5?

The tone machine setting is singular for achieving the "vocoder" effect. This is the most powerful sampler I have ever used, hands down.

Re: Kontakt 5?

If you can afford Komplete 9, go that route. If not, Kontakt 5 is a great VST.

Re: Kontakt 5?

I bought the komplete 6 audio interface and it came with Traktor and Kontak 5. Kontakt 5 has some of the best sounds IMO. The drums , keys , horns, brass, strings sound soooo goood so i recomend you to get them!

Massively versatile. I mainly use it for the libraries but when I do use it for sampling my own sounds there is so much I can do with it
