I'd buy Kontakt if I can be assured that I can change the starting point of sample playback with a continuous controller. As an explanation of this---
For any single sample:
1) If I depress a key on a keyboard, the sample should play normally starting
at the beginning.
2) Using a continuous controller, I would like to be able to change the point at which the sample starts to play back. For instance, for a 10 second sample:
a) With the continuous controller at 10% of it's full-scale value, the
sample would start playing back at the point roughly 1 second
after the beginnning of the sample.
b) With the continuous controller at 90% of it's full-scale value, the
sample would start playing back at the point roughly 9 seconds
after the beginning of the sample
ETC. ETC. ETC. for other values from the continuous controller.
c) No matter where the sample playback starts, the sample should
I'm wondering if Kontakt can do this. Gigastudio can't because the beginning of each sample is stored in memory. Does anyone know if this is possible in Kontakt?
