Hi, I am looking into Kontakt 3. At this moment I am using GS3 as my sampler and I read from the web that they are now offering crossgrade from GS to K3 by NI.
Anyway, having used GS3 for a while, I know some of the limitations ( or nice features ). I like to ask some questions here for apple-to-apple comparison and hope someone can help me.
1. GS3 runs in kernel mode and has a limit of 2G ( and not likely to achieve it ) and runs in 1 core of the CPU. Is there a limit K3 will run ? ie, if I have a 32-bit XP, installed 8G memory with 2-core CPU, can K3 use more than 2G of memory and utilizing the other core ?
2. I have Sonivox complete symphonic collection for GS3 format. A lot of them have the DEF filtering. Is there a similar feature in K3 ? Can K3 scripts achieve similar effect ?
3. Now since K3 doesn't seem to require special audio card as it runs ASIO, is there anyone running the app ( plus sequencer ) on a laptop, say, with 2G memory or 2.2GHz cpu or more powerful configuration ?
Thanks for any input.
