The Kontakt Browser - Features of Kontakt - Part 6
Welcome back to our ongoing introductory video tutorial series focused on the basic layout, navigation, features and functionality of Kontakt. This week we take an in-depth look at the Kontakt Browser.
Our resident Kontakt expert, DJ Nyce, is back to kick down some more detailed information about our favorite sampler. This time he walks us through each and every part of the Kontakt browser feature, which allows you to save, load and manage your sounds and sample libraries. Although the Kontakt browser and the searching capabilities are fairly straight forward, there are several tips that are mention worth taking note of. For instance, all sounds can be tagged with attributes to keep your collection of samples and libraries more manageable, and therefore accessible. You need to make sure that you are always aware of selected attributes when searching, so you don’t filter out any sounds you may be looking for. Likewise, if you want to look through all sounds in your database, then you need to make sure that no attributes are selected at all in your search.
Saving new samples and libraries into your database via the Kontakt browser is also covered in this lesson. Doing this properly is crucial for your database to stay up-to-date and provide you with correct results when searching and loading. Just like any type of information stored on your computer, you need to be aware of how a program locates and handles the files it deals with. This in-depth tutorial covers everything you need to know in a way that makes it accessible and understandable to users of all experience levels. In fact, if you know someone just starting out with Kontakt, consider sharing this link with them to help get them up to speed quickly and avoid some of the more common mistakes beginners experience.
