Native Instruments Kontakt 2.2

Native Instruments has released Kontakt Version 2.2, an update for its flagship sampler. The new version promises a wide range of functional enhancements and optimizations, ranging from improved loop handling and group management to extended KSP and Universal Import functionality, as well as compatibility with Intel-based Macintosh computers.

Handling of sliced loops in Kontakt 2.2 is now more flexible and convenient due to new drag-and-drop and in-sync preview functionality. Group management has also been improved with a load/save function, 128-voice groups and new group presets.

The KSP engine now offers additional functions that allow for a wider range of creative scripting usage. New modulation, tuning and envelope features expand the sound-shaping capabilities of Kontakt 2. The Universal Import function in Version 2.2 now supports five additional formats.

The Version 2.2 update for Windows and Mac is now available as a free download for all registered users of Kontakt 2 on the NI Website.

To install Kontakt 2.2 on a Intel-based Macintosh computer, users must purchase a Universal Binary license code ($29) in the NI Online Shop. Customers who first registered Kontakt after September 12, 2006, are eligible for a free Universal Binary license code.
