After doing conversions to halion and EXS24 mk II I must say that Kontakt has been the far easiest sampler to work with. I just spend 2 days on it - and made native programming while learning it for the first time! This is FAST.
I also think it is very flexible with ram versus HD streaming.
So far thumbs up. The next weeks I will convert my bass libraries and they are FAR more advanced. It will be interesting to see how this works. I wonder how it will react with program changes...
How did you fare with the DFD? I can far better results with it disabled. I was eyeing up your piano samples, but worry that I would not be able to use them because of severe processor peaks when DFD is active. I can, however, always get the giga version too.
