    Can I buy Kontakt Player 2?

    I have Halion3 and I'm using Logic 7, so I have virtual samplers, but I would like to get Kontakt Player2 for the "scripting" feature. Is it possible to buy it seperately? If so... where?

    I can't find it for sale on the net. Does this mean you can only get bundled with a particular library?

    I believe that you canot buy Kontak 2 Player which only comes bundled with various manufacturer's samples.

    You can buy Kontakt 2. There are several price points based on what you already own including:

    - crossgrade
    - upgrade
    - academic
    - full

    Looking at the page you linked to, I do not see a place where you can purchase the player without purchasing one of the 3rd party libraries.

    Also, I believe (but am not sure) that you cannot access the scripting in Kontakt player.

    I think you need the full Kontakt 2 to do what you want.

    You misunderstand what they are saying.

    The Kontakt Player 2 can not be purchased separately; it only comes as part of an associated sample library. The Kontakt Player 2 can only load and play other Kontakt Player 2 libraries, not any Kontakt 2 library.

    The easiest way to understand the Kontakt Player 2 engine is to compare it to the older Kompakt-based libraries. Under the old "Kompakt system", each library has its own separate player interface (e.g. GPO player and interface separate from EWQLSO Gold interface). With the Kontakt Player 2 engine, all Kontakt Player 2 libraries you own are displayed within a single inteface.

    If you look at the screen in the background of this picture, you can see a single Kontakt Player 2 interface showing Garritan Strad, Fixed Noise OTTO, VirSyn Acoustic Legends, Sample Logic AIR, and Chris Hein Guitars (5 libraries) along the left hand side.

    It was a lot easier when they called it Kompakt.
