KONTAKT 3 demo released

Native Instruments has released the demo version of KONTAKT 3, its latest pro sampling software. The program is said to have "universal" file import ability, and incorporates a wave editor which goes beyond standard functions such as looping, slicing and tempo sync. Users can draw envelopes directly within the waveform, and apply 18 different effects, such as amp and cabinet simulations. The full version of KONTAKT 3 also has over 33GB of stock samples, with 1,000 instruments in categories such as Orchestral, World, Band and Urban Beats.

The demo is 458MB, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher. All functions and presets are included, but the program can only be run for 30 minutes at a time, and there is no ability to save or do a total recall. The sample library is meanwhile reduced by necessity, although it still taps into all six instrument categories. The full version of KONTAKT 3 is $450.
