Did you ever wonder how Kontakt instruments are created? If so, you've discovered the right course! Learn everything you need to know about creating your first sample instrument in Kontact.

Building your first Kontakt instrument begins with learning all the ins-and-outs of sampling. In this initial course '"in our new advanced Kontakt series'" trainer Scott Freiman breaks down the process of building a sample instrument while demystifying the art of sampling.

You see how a Kontakt instrument is constructed starting with the samples themselves. From there Scott explains how you inject all those audio recordings (samples) into Kontakt. You then learn how to map a simple sample across the keyboard using the Mapping Editor. But this is just the beginning. Scott explains how to batch load multiple samples and then AutoMap them! You also learn about the Group Editor and alternating between different sample groups to achieve more realistic performances. OK, now it's time to start tweaking...

Next up is a section of tutorials that zoom in on the art of looping. Scott explains all of Kontakt's advanced looping and editing tools and to use them to create perfect, seamless looped samples.

By the time you complete this course you will know what building a simple sample instrument involves and how you can get started building you very own collection of Kontakt instruments. And stay tuned, because there are more Advanced Kontakt courses on the way!
