Native Instruments Kontakt 6.2 is one among the leading sampling solutions within the audio industry. Kontakt 6.2 allows you to replay and process audio samples — but that doesn’t even begin to convey the complete range of its capabilities. With Native Instruments Kontakt 6.2, you’ll create sophisticated sample-based virtual instruments, process their audio signals with powerful DSP structures, build complex performance setups with extensive modulation routings, and gain access to an enormous number of thirdparty sample libraries.
What is New Native Instruments Kontakt 6.2?
Native Instruments Kontakt 6.2 has some fresh new features: you’ll now drag and drop samples into supported instruments to use your own sounds. There are new chorus, flanger, and phaser effects inherited from MOD PACK, and for instrument builders, Creator Tools has been given some like to make the creation process easier than ever.
Native Instruments Kontakt 6.2 update includes a set of latest builder features that permits the creation of advanced instruments that allow users to tug and drop samples, MIDI files, and arrays onto an instrument’s interface.
Changes in Kontakt 6.2
- Added: There are now three new state of the art modulation effects (Choral, Flair & Phasis).
- Added KSP: there’s a replacement sort of zone which will be created and is fully accessible from KSP, allowing dynamic mapping of samples, including end-user ones (set_num_user_zones(), set_sample(), set_zone_par(), set_loop_par() & is_zone_empty()).
- Added KSP: All zone parameters can now be read from KSP (get_sample(), get_zone_par() & get_loop_par()); available for both user zones & standard ones.
- Added KSP: New MIR functions to detect pitch, RMS, peak level and loudness of any zone (user or standard).
- Added KSP: New MIR functions to classify samples supported their audio characteristics (e.g., Kick, Snare, Choir, Synth, etc).
- Added KSP: New UI widget (ui_mouse_area), this first iteration of which allows dropping files from the system to an instrument’s UI.
- Added KSP: New command to form handling asynchronous operations more convenient (wait_async()).
- Improved: An instrument can now be loaded with missing resources (samples, NKRs, etc) without the references being completely discarded, i.e., one can load an instrument, ignore missing samples, reserve it and reload it without losing data.
- Added: a replacement entry within the Mapping Editor’s Edit menu allows for manually removing all zones with missing samples.
- Improved KSP: purge_group() is now returns an async ID, allowing reliable tracking of the operations completion.
- Improved: there have been some performance issues with instruments with many automation assignments when running in Logic.
- Improved: The scrolling and animation speed within the Libraries tab has been adjusted.
- Fixed: There are not any more conflicts between MIDI and Host automation in Logic.
- Fixed: Kontakt would often crash when trying to run a Batch Resave operation.
- Fixed: there have been some audible clicks in certain cases involving looping samples played back with machine Pro.
- Fixed: Kontakt would crash when saving an NKI after assigning user automation to any of the recently added reverb and delay effects.
- Fixed KSP: Switches and menus would grind to a halt in their hover states under certain circumstances.
- Fixed KSP: In certain cases, when an impact was within a panel, its position would be 1 pixel off of what was expected.
- Fixed: Kontakt now works on Mac OS Catalina.
- The update is now available from Native Access.
