I am interested in upgrading to the full Kontakt 2; I presently have the Kontakt 2 Player with GPO.
My first query is about the 'Time Machine' mode which, I understand, can make a sample wav riff (in a set key of a set duration) work at any tempo or key.
How effective is this, I mean, by using 'Time Machine' does this reduce the quality of the original riff as I believe it must, or does this have a negligible effect on the riff?
For my second query, I have heard that Kontakt 2 can load instruments that are in HALion format, and they are instantly playable. Can anyone confirm this?
