Native Instruments has announced Kontakt Experience (Mac/Win; $119), the first instrument collection designed for the Kontakt 2 sampler. The collection includes 128 new instruments, covering a wide range of musical styles and sounds (including lead synths, bass, vocal sounds, drum kits, pads, guitars, and various construction kits).
The instruments make use of the Kontakt Script Processor (KSP), the programmable MIDI processing module in Kontakt 2. Included in Kontakt Experience are 10 new KSP modules that are seamlessly integrated with the instruments in the collection but can be used with any other Kontak 2 instrument. Additions include Chord Splitter, Drum Computer, Melodymaker, and Loop Designer.
The library comes with a manual that includes detailed information on each instrument, including its Quick Edit parameter assignments and KSP functionality. For more information and demo sounds, click here.
