Perhaps this topic is already somewhere in the forums, I\'m not sure, but anyway....
I am interested in one or two of the VSL packages, but I prefer Kontakt - does anyone have any experience in successfully converting VSL to Kontakt. I know there\'s some sort of performance tool with the Performance set - any way to make that work with Kontakt? I\'m not really worried about an easy conversion, I can manually recreate the x-fades and such if necessary, but any experiences here would help. I know that EWQLSO is the logical choice for a Kontakt-only user, and I don\'t have that yet either, but I\'ve heard that the Perf Set and Woodwinds from VSL or a must have for serious work, I just don\'t want to get into Giga. Been using Kontakt and Akai stuff, and that\'s where I want to stay.
it is my understanding that we have to wait for version 1.5 of Kontakt to do this..
I have run QLEWSO as a DXI in Sonar 3.0 Producer and all other Kontakt voices including Giga libraries as a DXI in Kontakt To Sonar 3.0 Producer too..
I know people who are running VSL in Kontakt and Halion. U need a midi loopback device to run the performance tools(midi yolk,or maple tools from marblesounds.com). About 80% of the lib. will convert easily and the other 20% is dif***ult because of the diff. between the architecture of GS and kontakt .GS uses mutli-matrix dimentions or something like that in VSL and Kontakt 1.2 doesnt handle that. Kontakt 1.5 may be different .We`ll see. Basically,VSl works in Kontakt but some patchs may not work perfectly with 1.2. I`ve loaded the demo cube in and it worked perfectly. Good luck,Rich
Thanks a bunch guys! Sounds like it\'ll be an adventure, but I usually have good luck with things like this, so maybe it won\'t be that bad. I don\'t really have a problem with manually doing some of the conversion, so 80% would be bonus!
its the ones that use Kswitches AND the mod wheel that dont work, which is like %5 of the library, and you can make variations of these that only use KS instead of both.... so you dont need ot miss out on those patches.
