    Microtuning

    Many samplers and synthesizers support microtuning. I am requesting (begging actually) this feature for Kontakt. I recently purchased Garritan\'s Personal Orchestra. This is a spectacular library of orchestral sounds. Yes, one can adjust the overall concert pitch from the Kontact interface. But I am surprised not to find support for the importing of Scala tuning files or at least the capability to adjust the intervallic relationships in such a sophisticated product. Not everyone plays in 12-tone equal temperament! With the growing interest in ethnic, microtonal and world music in general it is hoped that NI can remedy this glaring omission from their very fine sample player.

    No 12th root of 2 here, please,

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your response. Yes, I learned that the full version of Kontakt 1.5 can do this. Unfortunately for me the version that comes with Garritan\'s Personal Orchestra is a stripped down version. It is simply a sample player with no editing capabilities and therefore no retuning support.
