Managing Your Quick-Load Catalog in Konatkt
Kontakt has several tools for locating and loading objects on your hard disk. Among them is the Quick-Load catalog. Once you’ve built up your catalog, managing it from the Quick-Load browser can become time consuming. In today’s video tutorial, I’ll give you some helpful tips on Managing Your Quick-Load catalog.
The Quick-Load Catalog is similar to the File Browser because it provides access to a hierarchical directory structure. The difference is that you can freely define the Quick-Load catalog’s structure without having to worry about the actual file paths, library relationships, or formats. In other words, you can define a “virtual file system” that exists in parallel to the actual file system on your hard disks, and use it to freely organize and index your files without actually copying or moving them to different locations.
The central facility where you manage and access your catalog is the Quick-Load Browser. It appears below the Rack when you right-click somewhere inside the empty space below the Instrument Headers. You can resize this pane by clicking and dragging the bar that separates it from the Rack. Another right-click inside the empty region of the Rack hides the browser again. Please note that as long as the Quick-Load Browser is visible, it will hide the On-Screen Keyboard.
