    Gigastudio Samples into Kontakt 3

    Does anyone know how I can convert some GS3 (GigaPiano) Samples into a format that my Kontakt 3 can use?

    Thank you!

    A lot of Giga libraries will simply import into Kontakt. Then you can re-save them as Kontakt instruments to speed up loading in future.

    Where there's any complicated programming then you'll probably need to use a programme such as Chicken Systems Translator. There are also a few straight forward things that routinely don't convert well, when doing a simple import - for instance, modwheel controlled filters or crossfades never seem to make it.

    I've been fiddling with Kontakt 3 for half an hour and still can't figure out how to convert the samples over.... can someone give me a step by step walkthrough?

    I think all you have to do is drag the GIG file into Kontakt and it will automatically convert as it loads. Then save it as an NKI instrument.

    I'm still on Kontakt 2, but it's probably still the same. I simply use the file browser on the left of Kontakt to navigate to the GIG file that I want to load. Be aware that Gig files are, in effect, folders, usually containing several articulations. So click on the Gig file in the top half of the browser - in the bottom half you should then see the individual articulations; double click on one to load it.
