    Welcome news.

    Is there any possibility of cross-grade pricing for those of us who already have the Gigastudio version?

    Hello,
    we will think about a possibility of cross-grade pricing for owners of the GigaStudio version.

    Regards,

    Hallo Hans-Josef

    XSamples war schon immer tolle sounds, insbes. Cello,Klarinette & AltoSax in der Emuversion!

    (I always loved the Emu XSample Cello, Clarinet & Alto Sax!)

    Did you do any scripting for the K2 versions or is it a simple format conversion?

    Thanks

    Nigel

    Hello Nigel,
    Danke für die Komplimente!

    It's no simple format conversion. That's the reason, for the
    long time it takes...
    The Kontakt2 Library comes with a complete new layout.
    The solo strings are completed with a lot of more articulations.
    One of these new articulations is natural vibrato for all solo strings.
    Finale integration through a special adaption for Xsample instruments.
    There are some special scripts for Kontakt2:
    -body resonance (solo strings)
    -layer-key-swichting (so you can handle a lot of switches, the key switches are
    converted to controller values, so that a sequencer starts every time with the right sound (fetch controller).-extended tune script

    Thanks for the Info.

    I own the entire X-sample (Gigastudio) line, but have stopped using Gigastudio long time ago, it would be great to use X-sample (Kontakt 2) libraries again.

    A crossgrade price is the only way I would consider buying a Kontakt 2 version, provided that the K2 will be a big improvement over the Giga version X-sample library.

    Thanks.

    Hans-Josef,

    thanks for the reply; that sounds promising!

    I have the complete Emu Collection, which I rate very highly and have converted and programmed many instruments to use with exs24 in Logic.

    The Emu programming was of a very high standard, so I would think that you probably are doing some good work using the new possibilites of K2.

    If possible, it would be nice of you could offer crossgrades from all formats, not just Gigastudio, and also if the new version were available as modules, like the original collection.

    best regards,

    Nigel

    Hello Nigel,
    if there will be a cross-grade, then of course for all formats.
    Thanks for your comment on the Emu Version of our library.
    I liked the good old Emu architecture very much and so I've
    invested a lot of work to program the presets.
    The new Kontakt Library will be online available as modules.

    Best,
    Hans Josef
