Important Note
Notes: When playing slow portamento and quarter tone scale try reducing tune amount as it might glide slowly and sound strange. Key switches (yellow keys) are made to switch between articulations, try not to hold them down while playing as the script will translate it as a legato part and get stuck Latest Kontakt version 5.3.0 is needed to run this library
