Scott Freiman unveils the incredible sampling power of Native Instrument's Kontakt in this comprehensive series of tutorial-videos.

In this tutorial, composer and sound designer Scott Freiman shows you how to use Native Instruments’ powerful Kontakt 4 sampler -- the sampler that has rapidly become a standard in every professional studio. New and novice users alike will find plenty of tips and tricks scattered among this 3 hour course.

After a brief series of “getting started” videos, Scott gets right into music making with Kontakt. Scott will introduce you to all the features that make Kontakt so much fun to use. Topics include creating a database of your own samples, using Kontakt as a plug-in (with a special guest appearance from Steve H!), automating Kontakt with MIDI, and getting the most from the Kontakt browser. The course also takes a detailed look at each of the sample collections that make up the Kontakt Factory Library.

Whether you are migrating from another sampler, such as Gigastudio or EXS-24, or completely new to sampling, Exploring Kontakt will teach you everything you need to know to use Kontakt as part of your composing arsenal.
