So now the well-loved Peter Siedlaczek library is out in a Kompakt player format...at a great upgrade price, but I don't think I'll go for it.
The Kompakt player is really just a cheapo way to repackage content in a piracy-proof format IMO.
It offers NO benefits to the User: it has a fiddly, tiny interface, a paltry TWO FIXED modulation routings (I know, I'm shouting....).....and that's it.
Now I actually think highly of Native Instruments as a company...and Kontakt 2 is very powerful. But the Kompakt players look so pathetic....check out what VSL have done with their new VI to make sample content, fun , fast , and powerful to use. That's what NI should be doing, too.
