Kontakt Experience includes 128 new instruments that cover a wide range of musical styles and include lead synths, bass, vocal sounds, drum kits, pads, guitars, various construction kits, and much more. The instruments make extensive use of the Kontakt Script Processor (KSP), the unique programmable MIDI processing module in Kontakt 2.
Included in Kontakt Experience are 10 new KSP modules that are not only seamlessly integrated with the instruments in the collection, but can also be used with any other Kontakt 2 instrument, opening up new creative possibilities. Additions include a versatile Chord Splitter, a full-featured Drum Computer, the unique Melodymaker, a Loop Designer, and more.
The 128 instruments of Kontakt Experience fall into the categories "Performances", "Motion & Pads", "Vocalized", "Harmonized", "Guitarized", "Exotic", "Melodic Loops", "Lead & Bass Synths", "Arpeggiated", and "Drumkits & Drumloops". The library comes with an extensive manual that includes detailed information on each instrument, including its "Quick Edit" parameter assignments and KSP functionality.
Kontakt Experience ships on a single DVD and is exclusively for use with Kontakt 2. It will be available in August 2005 for a suggested retail price of US$119 / EU€99 from authorized dealers and in the NI Online Shop.
