Native Instruments releases Kontakt 2.2 including Universal Binary support 22/11/06
Native Instruments have released Kontakt 2.2, an update for its
flagship sampler. They tell us that the new version brings a wide range of functional
enhancements and optimizations, ranging from improved loop handling and
group management to extended KSP and Universal Import functionality, as well
as compatibility with Intel-based Macintosh computers.
Handling of sliced loops in Kontakt 2.2 is now more flexible and convenient
due to new drag-and-drop and in-sync preview functionality. Group management
has also been improved with a load/save function, 128-voice groups and new
NI sat that the KSP engine now offers additional functions that allow for an even wider
range of creative scripting usage, while new modulation, tuning and envelope
features expand the sound shaping capabilities of Kontakt 2.
The powerful Universal Import function in version 2.2 now supports five
additional formats, which, say NI, underscores the role of Kontakt 2 as the most
compatible sampler on the market.
A new Kontakt 2 demo based on version 2.2 will also available for download
shortly. Pricing and Availability:
The 2.2 update for Windows and Mac is now available as a free download for
all registered users of Kontakt 2 on the NI website.
For installation on a Intel-based Macintosh computer, a Universal Binary
license code can be purchased for $ 29 / 25 Euro in the NI Online Shop.
Customers who first registered Kontakt 2 after September 12th, 2006, are
eligible for a free Universal Binary license code. More information:
