    Kontakt 3 update with 64-bit confirmed

    In case you might be interested...on the NI website.

    Kontakt 3 update with 64-bit memory addressing confirmed
    Hi everybody,

    I want to bring you the good news that NI has started development on a Kontakt version that supports 64-bit memory addressing for Mac OS X 10.5 and Windows Vista 64.

    This will be a free update for Kontakt 3, and will allow to go beyond the 32-bit memory addressing limit and utilize as much RAM as your operating system or host makes available.

    This version of Kontakt 3 will also run as a VST plugin under 64-bit hosts in Windows Vista 64 (Windows XP 64 will likely not be supported; standalone and 32-bit plugin operation under Vista 64bit are already possible with Kontakt 3.0.1).

    No specific info on the release date yet, but you can expect it sometime in the second half of 2008. It is a substantial development effort and requires a lot of testing and optimization.

    I will keep you posted about upcoming milestones of this update.

    Regards, Thomas

    Excellent news.

    I'd hate to think I could use XP64 and Gigastudio 4 w/o Kontackt.

    Now I can have all of my content and 8GB's of RAM.

    -or-
    It is officially rumored to be true.

    What a riot though. This post is coming up on it's one year anniversary.

    Not really a riot though. I am a Pro Tools user so have been SOL with Kontakt on my Mac/Leopard Machine.

    There actually is a riot developing over on the Pro Tools forum. Things are getting ugly.

    Call it official, unofficial, rumoured or whatever, I'll get excited when its actually released and a user base says it actually works.

    Eventually, no doubt.

    I guess all you can really say is that the announcement is official.

    One year later and it still is in development, not even beta yet.

    We are a ways off still!

    Sure, it's gonna be a while. But at least they're getting closer.

    If an official announcement from the official developers doesn't make a product or update _OFFICIAL_ then what will? Geez.
