|Author||Topic: CAN SAMPLES SOUND LIKE VST-I USING KONTAKT??|
Posted: 9th May 2003 02:04
I recently bought Kontakt. Fantastic sampler, I am really happy with it...but..
I have some pro sample cd's which contain synth sounds. When i load them and play a melody then it sound very bad. Not even comparable with any vst-i. Samples are cut, based on note length...etc. H
How to improve this? How to make it sound like a synth so I can play melodies with it...

I´m not shure I understand??
Load a saw wave in mapeditor and map it across the whole keyboard, open loopedit and set it so it loops perfect. Insert a amp env and then start playing. This was a very simple example.
All is depending on the actual audio file, and how it is cut and looped or not looped
If you want filters, fx etc. just add them. Kontakt can make very complex routings.
Theres a tutorial on NI site on how to operate many things.

Basically, how can I avoid that my samples are cut (no sustain, aftertouch etc...). As I said, when I play a melody it doesn't sound natural. Loading a synth sample obviously is not enough. But I can't find out what else to do to make it sound like a VST-i synth...
Thanks for any suggestions,

these Pro cd's must be single shot wavs ?
if they where multi samples they would loop, you did try the included library of coarse ? that has multi's from various synths.
but you knew that right ?

These pro samples (House essentials by Uberschall I am talking about) are indeed single sample shots (probably based on multiple samples as they sound wicked!!). I indeed tried the enclosed Kontakt libary which sound a lot better...now I want to get similar results using the single shots...

If they dont loop, you have to open each of them in the loop editor and set them to loop "until end". Note, there are different choices of looping to choose. Tip: Read the manual p-68 about the loop editor.

Perhaps what you are missing is an envelope. When you load a sample into an empty instrument, the sound only plays as long as the key is pressed. You need to add an envelope in order to have decay and release etc. Click on the plus at the bottom of the amp module and choose add envelope. Then tweek and bingo. That is if this is what you are talking about.
