The upgrade of the portable version of the high-quality sampler is now with a table-wave engine that allows you to combine synthesis and samples in order to create sound themes that have never been heard before.
New built-in effects: Replika Delay (REPLIKA XT); Reverbs – Room Reverb, Hall Reverb, Plate Reverb; Cry Wah – emulation of the pedal- “wist”.
From the 6th version went into non-existence: a database of tools (Browser Database tab), the ability to import tools of third-party formats (except Reason), VST plug-ins with a limited number of audio outputs (8 and 16out).
Assembly features :
0. Does not integrate into NI Maschine and Komplete Kontrol!
1. Installation, including additional software (Service Center, Native Access, MS VS C ++ runtime), is not required.
2. All settings are saved in the portable program folder (Windows registry and other system storages are not used, administrator rights are not required * ).
3. The Library Manager is integrated, providing full control over protected libraries, as well as allowing to register unprotected (self-made) libraries without generating nicnt-files.
4. The possibility of simultaneous work with the installed version of the Contact without conflicts and with different settings.
5. No activation of protected libraries is required.
6. Ability to edit password-protected scripts.
7. The possibility of resaving with samples patches protected libraries.
* Requires (super) administrator rights if the portable program folder is placed in protected system storage (for example, in Program Files) – such a location for portable programs is unnatural and is not recommended
Fixed: In some cases, dynamic fonts [Dynamic Fonts] could be the wrong color after downloading a new tool.
Fixed: Feedback parameter in the effect of Replika Delay could spontaneously move 100% after changing the sampling rate
Fixed: Quick changes of parameters in the table-wave [wavetable] module could cause audible artifacts if they came not from the built-in modulators; now all parameter changes (manually, automation or script) are smoothed out more efficiently for a better sound result.
Fixed: Kontakt Portable does not start on Windows 7 without the installed KB2999226 update (Universal C Runtime for Windows 10)
Fixed: When saving in the 6th version of the Contact, the mysterious “Unknown Tool (unsupported)” appears in the tool tags (nki)
Changed: Library Manager starts from the Contact interface when clicking the Manage Libraries button directly, bypassing the intermediate settings window.
Built-in scripting language (KSP):
FIXED KSP: Kontakt would crash if watch_var () was used with a ui_control variable
FIXED KSP: Certain GUI elements are already defined (eg, Una Corda) (related to the ui_switch control)
