Creative Ways To Disable Script Slots In Kontakt
With Kontakt Scripting, you have 5 slots or tabs available each containing one script. Code executed in the slots are processed in order from left to right. In some situations you want to disable the script in some tabs, leaving others enabled. In today’s advanced video tutorial, we will discuss Creative Ways To Disable Script Slots.
Kontakt includes a powerful and flexible scripting language processor, which is designed to let third-party developers come up with custom and complex ways in which users can interact with their Instruments and Multis. Kontakt’s scripting language is easy enough to learn for anyone who has used a programming language before, but you’ll still need a thorough reference, which is available in the Kontakt Documentation folder.
In order to open the local editor of an Instrument, click the Script Editor button below its header when the Rack is in Edit mode. The Script Editors on the Multi and Instrument levels are identical.
At the top of the panel, you’ll see five tabs, each of them with an empty label. These are slots that can take up one Script each; if a Script changes any events, another script in a slot to its right will ‘see’ the modified events. In other words, the five slots act as a chain of event filters. Below the slot tabs, there’s an empty space; each script can provide its own user interface, which will appear here.
