    EXS vs. Kontakt

    Hello ladies and gents. Anyone here have firsthand knowledge of both the EXS sampler in Logic 7 and the current incarnation of Kontackt? I'm trying to decide whether or not to switch from DigitalPerformer to Logic and use the EXS, or to stay with DP and get Kontakt2 when it comes out.

    Thank you, and good night.

    Well, changing to Logic will probably be a good move, since it´s the best sequencer out there, for sure. Too bad it´s not available anymore for PC
    Regarding EXS, it is a VERY powerful sampler, and a very good choice, specially because it´s is bundled with Logic and you won´t have to spend extra money to have it. But Kontakt 2 is coming, and it promisses to be the best sampler ever, with many features that are very ahead of its time.
    I guess you made an excelent question, I can´t think of a better choice now, just keep in mind that you will be very well served in both cases.


    Good Luck!

    Thanks Guga. Yes, it looks like Logic has some really great features not available in DP. Too bad for me that Apple won't offer a crossgrade from DP. I'm sure they would get more switchers if they did.

    About Konakt2, if it works as well as they describe, it should be very interesting.

    Decisions, decisions...

    Cheers,

    Why would you want to change your sequencer because of imagined differences between EXS and Kontakt?

    The best squencer is the one you know how to use.

    I wouldn't change my sequencer because of imagined differences, but rather for real and significant advantages, both in the sampler and in the sequencer software itself.

    I don't think here are significant advantages between any top tiered products, squencer or sampler.

    Is there something DP doesn't do you that you need?

    I'm simply seeking information, that's all.
