Happy Valentine’s Day, Kontakt Users

As an avid songwriter, and an avid Native Instruments Kontakt user, I’m always interested in tools to inspire new creations. Here’s a quick spur-of-the-moment demo instrument I whipped up in Kontakt as a special Valentine’s Day treat: a layered drum loop, acoustic piano, string section, and tenor saxophone. It’s a free download, though it requires a full license of Kontakt 5.0.2 as well as the Kontakt 5 factory library to be installed.

Click here to download the files.

To use it, load the multi up in Kontakt 5.0.2 or later. If it alerts you to missing sample files, point it to the Kontakt 5 factory library, then the full instrument will load.

To play it, hit the C0 key to start and stop the drum loop (which will automatically sync to your host or MasterKontrol tempo). Keys from F2 and below will play an upright bass, and keys from F#2 and above will play a layered combination of acoustic piano, string section, and tenor saxophone. For a demonstration, see the video below. It’s not intended to be the greatest, detailed high-quality instrument ever designed, but it’s functional and useful as quick inspiration for a demo or for songwriting sketches.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Wow, this new #MacPro is cheap!! I can't decide if I should get 2 or 3...or see if I can rack-mount my new composing rig into a Tesla then put it into a SpaceX rocket and compose from Mars. https://t.co/LVuGFJyi0H daviddas photo

I seriously think Mike Viola is one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the century. So much genius packed into one minute: https://t.co/XCpi49R6dG
