PREVIEW YOUR KONTAKT PATCHES
NATIVE INSTRUMENT USERS HAVE LONGED FOR A WAY TO QUICKLY AUDITION PATCHES
CLARIFICATIONS: Komplete Kontrol is available for free to any owner of a Komplete Kontrol keyboard or the Komplete bundle.
Abbey Road Drum kits DO have preview files available. Apparently, there was an issue on our machine that prevented them from playing back for this video.
One feature that many Native Instrument Kontakt users have wished for is a way to hear a patch without loading it.
Why would this be beneficial?
As Kontakt libraries have become more sophisticated, the time it takes a patch to load has increased. So the thought has been: “Isn’t there a way to hear this without waiting the three, four, five, or however many seconds it takes to load?”
Well now there is a way to do that by using the latest version of Komplete Kontrol (which is free) or the Maschine software.
This video will show you how to set it up, how it works and discuss some of the pros and cons.
