Creating Kontakt Instruments
Instruments in Kontakt are the basic building block of all sound in Kontakt and there are many ways to create them. But instruments are also made up of smaller pieces called groups and even smaller are the zones. In today’s tutorial we will talk about creating Kontakt Instruments, creating and editing zones, creating and editing groups and using Instrument InsertFX.
There are a few ways to create Instruments. You can use the Files button. You can drag (or double-click samples from the browser. Or you can drag samples from your desktop.
When you use the Files button to create new empty Instruments, you have more control over the Zones. You can access the Zones, by clicking on the wrench icon to enter Instrument Edit mode. Once in Edit mode, click on the mapping editor to manage your Zones.
When you drag a sample from your browser, your mouse position determines the keyrange and velocity range. When you drag multiple samples, the same applies, except the samples will be evenly distributed across the keyrange or overlapping.
