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.)

New: The #AI lawsuit that's shaking up the music world. This new frontier of #GenerativeAI music is being pushed by #Suno and #Udio, but there are serious concerns. https://youtu.be/Hy8Or6af98c

ICYMI: 1 of my most popular #choral arrs ever is this SAB of Pierre Passereau's playful Il Est Bel Et Bon (16th century). Traditionally 4-part SATB, Perfect for emerging choirs to tackle vocal technique & part independence. #choir

New from me: what is going on with @Adobe, @Dropbox, and the future of online #privacy? It concerns every one of us:

I think it’s safe to say when Instagram tries to launch their nth new feature copied from another rival platform, their chances of success now become 1/n.

An interesting comment in light of the fact that the work of millions of human creators has been vacuumed up by OpenAI without consent or compensation.

Happy birthday to this dude (@aaronscottlazar) who is working on a project of a lifetime in the middle of a battle of a lifetime and is making everyone stronger for it. Thank you for being in my life bro and so glad we get to make some magical music together. @youralsnetwork
