THE DEFINITIVE SAMPLING PLATFORM
The industry-standard: KONTAKT powers the biggest selection of sampled instruments available.
Included factory library puts 55+ GB of detailed, creative, and expressive instruments at your fingertips.
Drag and drop your own samples into an instrument’s interface to use your own sounds.
Build your own instruments with powerful sample-editing and instrument-building options.
MORE THAN A SAMPLER
With KONTAKT 6, you can sound like a snare drum, a symphony orchestra, or anything in between, from a universe of sampled instruments. It’s a simple sampler when you want it to be, and a deep sonic scripting laboratory when you need something more. The next generation of the world’s favorite sampling platform gives you new instruments and new features under the hood – so you can layer, link, stretch, and shape your sounds any way you can imagine.
