Kontakt Tutorial Videos

Kontakt Tutorial Videos

A couple of years ago, I wrote a comprehensive book on Native Instruments’ Kontakt, a software sampler that is the de facto standard for modern samplers, entitled Kontakt 2 Power. (For more information on this book, click here.) From time to time, I host Kontakt seminars, and I recently had the opportunity to present a Kontakt seminar in Los Angeles for the Society of Composers and Lyricists, the premier organization for film and media composers.

In the course of preparing for the presentation, I produced several training videos for attendees to study further, and those training videos are now available here for purchase.

There are six videos in this collection, totaling approximately 45 minutes:

  1. A Tour of the Interface (12:01)
  2. Mapping the Electric Piano (10:42)
  3. Electric Piano Modulators (8:50)
  4. Pad with Modulators (7:36)
  5. Time Machine (3:24)
  6. Beat Machine (4:47)

This collection is designed for Kontakt beginners who would like a big-picture tour of Kontakt and get to know where the most important features are in the program and how to perform many common tasks. If you’d like a taste, here’s the full version of the first video:

The complete collection is available for purchase here for $9.99. The movies are in QuickTime format, easily playable on Mac, PC, and mobile devices, and can be downloaded immediately after purchase.

(The files have been taken offline temporarily due to a web site transition, but please use the Contact page if you would like to receive them, until they are re-added to this page.)

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
