Kontakt allows you to play back and process previously recorded audio data – samples of musical instruments, sound effects, vocal tracks, etc. – but this is only a small part of the full range of its capabilities. In VKontakte you can use ready-made instruments from a huge number of libraries from third-party developers or create your own virtual instruments, apply powerful built-in processing modules to their audio signals, and build complex performance schemes with various modulation connections. Everything is possible – from ultra-precise recreation of real instruments to the creation of original, unlike anything else instruments.
The main innovation of the sixth version of Kontakt is the wavetable engine, which allows new hybrid instruments that combine synthesis and sampling to create unique sound textures.

✔️ What’s new in Kontakt 7:

New Factory Library (Download separately): has been redesigned and includes seven new collections of instruments, fresh sounds, effects, additional features and a HiDPI interface.

New Browser: Provides access to all your instruments and snapshots, allowing you to filter sounds by tags, text search, custom presets and favorites, helping you quickly and intuitively find the right presets for your musical needs.

Two new effects: PsycheDelay and Ring Modulator.

Psyche Delay is a stereo delay effect that creates a series of atmospheric background echoes and reverse effects reminiscent of the “reversed tape” sound of the 1960s.

Ring Modulator is an effect based on the ring modulation technique, also called balanced. This special type of amplitude modulation destroys the harmonic structure of the sound and gives it a metallic sound character. By using a low-frequency modulation signal, tremolo effects can be achieved.

HiDPI: Pin 7 supports high resolution monitors.

Improved engine: updated time stretching algorithm.

Updated Sidebar [Classic Browser]: The Database tab has been removed and its functionality has been replaced by the new browser. The Expert tab has been renamed to the Monitor tab. When editing a complex instrument with different groups and zones, it’s easy to get lost in the editing tools. The Monitor tab counters this by providing a useful overview of various aspects of the tool you’re currently editing. Similar to the Instrument Navigator panel, it shows a constantly updated and searchable list of all groups and zones in your instrument. It allows you to quickly include and exclude groups for editing, and also provides a context-sensitive parameter view that shows the values ​​of the parameter you touched last across all groups.

✔️ History of changes:

FIXED a crash when replacing a Daft filter with any other filter with more than 8 voices playing at the same time.
FIXED Step Modulator no longer resets the steps setting after adjusting other parameters.
ADDED new Electric Grand EQ and tremolo mode to EP Preamps effect settings.
IMPROVED Tool selection is no longer reset when clicking on a level meter or empty space in the tool header in Single View.
