Description: Kontakt is the standard in the world of samplers. Native Instruments Kontakt 5 provides a set of high quality filters ranging from classic analog circuits and state variable models to modern format filters. Some of the 37 new filters use the new Adaptive Resonance concept, which automatically controls the filter response to prevent annoying sonic artifacts from excessive resonant peaks. The fifth version of the sampler also adds TimeMachine Pro time-scratching, which provides better sound quality for harmonic solo instruments.
The effects section in Native Instruments Kontakt 5 has been expanded with several key additions that focus on the studio style of sound processing. New Solid G-EQ and Solid Bus Comp algorithms, borrowed from the Solid Mix Series, allow equalization and compression, and the separately purchased Transient Designer has been integrated into the Kontakt effects section in its original form. In addition, a new analog Tape Saturator can add natural compression and a subtle organic overdrive, while vintage sampling modes taken from the Native Instruments Maschine have been integrated into the Native Instruments Kontakt 5 feature set.
For sound designers and professional samplers, Native Instruments Kontakt 5 offers a new instrument bus system and KSP-based MIDI file support. The 16 internal stereo busses with their individual built-in slots provide increased routing flexibility, the MIDI file feature in the Kontakt Script Processor allows you to create advanced instrument types from instruments with versatile integrated MIDI playback.

Additional functionality :
1. Activation of protected libraries is not required, the ability to register (add to bookmarks) in batch mode.
2. Ability to edit patches of protected libraries.
3. Possibility of resaving with samples patches of protected libraries.
4. Ability to edit password-protected scripts.
PORTABLE version features :
0. Not integrated 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 program’s portable folder (the Windows registry and other system storages are not used, administrator rights are not required*).
3. Integrated Library Manager, which provides full control over protected libraries, and also allows you to register unprotected (self-made) libraries without generating nicnt files.
4. Ability to work simultaneously with the installed version of the Contact without conflicts and with different settings.

* Requires (super)administrator rights if the portable program folder is placed in a protected system storage (for example, in Program Files) – such a location for portable programs is unnatural and not recommended
