I was telling my friend how I was going to go to a store like guitar center to pick up a fresh new copy of Kontakt 2, and she interrupted me and said she actually had a (legit) copy of kontakt 1.5 and that she would sell it for me for a very low price! I'm really excited, because I'll purchase the upgrade and have the VSL stuff! Then My next goal is to pick up the kirk hunter emerald!
I have been using sfz+ and soundfonts... I figure i'll just sell sfz+ and be able to load my soundfonts into kontakt if i ever want to use them again
