KONTAKT 3 crossgrade
Native Instruments says it is now offering its KONTAKT 3 sampling software in a crossgrade package for owners of GigaStudio. The software features 1,000 instruments across six collections, totaling over 33GB of data. Users can edit with simple or advanced tools, the latter including freely-drawable envelopes. A wave editor, meanwhile, allows samples to be looped, sliced, or tempo-synced. Integrated effects include the likes of convolution or amp and cab emulation.
The software works standalone or as a AU, VST, RTAS, ASIO, Core Audio or DirectSound plug-in. KONTAKT 3 for Windows or Mac is available now, with a price tag of $280 for GigaStudio owners until the end of the year.
