    Kontakt Player 2 Announced

    The first KONTAKT PLAYER 2 instruments to be made available to musicians will be "Stradivari Solo Violin" from Gary Garritan, a breathtakingly dynamic and highly musical emulation of the legendary violin; "Chris Hein Guitars" from Best Service, an outstanding virtual guitar instrument that authentically recreates a vast range of typical playing styles; and "OTTO" from Fixed Noise, a cutting-edge electronic sound workstation designed and produced by avant-garde musician and sound designer Otto von Schirach.

    "Kontakt Player technology was a keystone of the success of our award-winning Personal Orchestra", says Gary Garritan, founder of the software instrument company of the same name. "The new Kontakt Player 2 platform is an extremely exciting basis for us to work with, and we are looking forward to fully exploiting its musical capabilities in our upcoming instruments, of which the Stradivari Violin is only the first."

    Thanks,

    Nice. Very nice. Looking forward to GPO on K2.

    One of these days I will get the Strad lib too.

    Skysaw, I'm not sure yet. I have to work out these details with Native Instrumements. It there is an upgrade fee it will be very reasonable.

    Will we be seeing an upgrade for JABB, too? Does KP2 support "controller learn" where I move a slider on my keyboard and KP2 will know (or can be told) to adjust cc26? I'm in the middle of my first JABB project and am enjoying the natural-ness (is that a word? I should probably have used "authenticity") of the sounds. That factor makes the whole experience more inspirational. I'm hoping KP2 will further that dynamic - looking forward to a great product getting better.
