I'm getting ready to purchase NI's Komplete 4, which includes Kontakt 2, and I'm wanting to use some of the great Real Rhodes, MelloKurz and Drone Archeology samples from Pyramid Sound:
Thing is, there are several different formats to choose from. I'm fairly new to sequencing and samples, so I don't really know the difference between Akai S5000, Akai S2000, KDFX, K2x00, etc. Has anyone ever imported any of those formats successfully into Kontakt 2?
From what I gather, Akai would probably be the safest choice, but some of the CDs don't come in an Akai version (MelloKurz, Pyramid Collection, for example) - and even if they do, I wouldn't know which sub-format (S1000, S6000, etc.) to go with. (or would that even matter?)
They're not cheap, so I want to make sure I'm getting compatible stuff. I e-mailed the company but haven't heard back yet (to be fair, I only contacted them this morning, so I'm sure they'll reply soon). Thought I'd ask you guys too though.
Thanks for any insights.
