In this video, we explore how you can use Kontakt 6’s Creator Tools to automatically map samples based on their pitch and volume.
We’re releasing a new sample library today: Viola Ensemble. It’s $15 for a limited time.
We’ve created a Kontakt template that should be perfect for people trying to build piano instruments in Kontakt. The basic idea behind the template is that it it should allow you to build a piano instrument in Kontakt 5/6 without doing much scripting. Check it out!

We’ve made a new Kontakt scripting tutorial in which we show how to work with piano samples. Topics covered: distinct samples for sustain and non-sustain, release triggers, and pedal up/down sounds.
Last week, Jon Meyer released in his fantastic Soft Drums library. In this video, we tinker with his samples–adding hi-hat “choke groups” to his kit.
In this Kontakt tutorial, we show how to make mic level knobs using instrument busses.
The samples we worked with in this video are from the free Box Violin Harmonics library we released last week.

This Fender Jazzmaster is without a doubt my favorite electric guitar. And this Music Man Sixty-Five tube amp is my favorite guitar amp. For the past ten years, I’ve used this combination on countless rock songs, film cues, and instrumental pieces. And now – finally – this versatile combo has been sampled and turned into a Kontakt instrument. Requires the full version of Kontakt 5.3.1 or later.

In this video, I take some first steps towards coding my own arpeggiator script. I also show off the great arpeggiator script that comes bundled with Kontakt. Along the way, I turn some samples of a toy piano I sampled and turn them into a full-featured Kontakt library.
The Toy Piano Kontakt library I made in this video is available for free here.
At one point in the video, I reference a video about round robins that I made a while back. You can watch that here:
I also mention Big Bob’s fantastic Ultra TKT script, which is available here: https://nilsliberg.se/ksp/scripts/utkt/utkt.htm
