Software description

Creative music nowadays can easily be found on the internet. Aside from accessibility, you can also make one yourself using Kontakt Player. Kontakt has been in the music industry for almost a decade now, used fondly by musicians and sound professionals alike. If you’re planning to test the application first, you can download the Kontakt Player which is a free version of the paid class of Kontakt 5. However, the contents and features that are available in the free version fairly differ from the paid version, evidently. There are many libraries with subcategories that can only be found in the paid version of the Kontakt Player.

Kontakt has been the music industry’s standard when it comes to virtual sampler of Native Instruments. It has revolutionary instruments which are totally sample based, constructed on an incredible audio engine and superior modular design. Kontakt Player is an application that is widely available for all that hosts a wide variety of instruments that are primarily sample-based by Native Instruments, but can also use a third-party products that are made for the platform.

Right at the start of using Kontakt Player, six different audio modes of playback that differently process audio. One is the customary sampler mode that plays back audio from memory. Another one is the time machine mode which has time machine 2 mode and time machine pro mode, all of which allows you to change the pitch of the audio without affecting the playback speed.

There is the tone mode which also allows you to change the pitch of the audio without affecting the playback speed, but it sounds a little on a grainy side. Beat machine mode is somewhat similar to the time machine pro mode in which you can also change the pitch of the audio independently with the playback speed, preserving your the overall quality of the audio.
