Na­tive In­stru­ments Kon­takt 5 £339

Future Music - - REVIEWS -

You may well al­ready have Kon­takt or the free Kon­takt Player in­stalled on your hard drive. With its Fac­tory li­brary of­fer­ing or­ches­tral, world and vin­tage tones, Kon­takt 5 is a dab hand at whip­ping up real in­stru­ment sounds. It’s when you start search­ing through the world of (some­times free) third-party sam­ple li­braries, how­ever, that Kon­takt be­comes even more pow­er­ful. And that’s with­out even men­tion­ing its im­mense fea­ture set as a sam­pler. This does mean that it doesn’t come cheap, though, and while it’s fre­quently up­dated, we still feel it’s owed an in­ter­face and use­abil­ity up­grade. V6, any­one?­tive-in­stru­ VER­DICT 8.7
