Build Your Own Kontakt Instrument

Friday, September 18, 2015 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

During this workshop we created a number of unique sampler instruments from free samples downloaded from freesound.org. A recording of a spring reverb became a polysynth. A female vocal recording in Catalan was manipulated to sound as if had been processed with a vocoder. Along the way, we looked at many of the editing windows in Kontakt, such as the Wave Editor, the Mapping Editor and Group Editor as well as the powerful effects and modulation capabilites of Kontakt.
