    Half price Kontakt, anyone?

    I just got this e-mail, which I think will be of interest to any GPOers who haven't already gotten it.

    Hello,

    As an experienced KOMPAKT, INTAKT or KONTAKT Player
    user, you undoubtedly value excellent sample
    instruments and high-quality sampler technology.
    If you are looking for an even more powerful and
    versatile sampler, we would like to make you a
    unique offer:
    As of now until the end of August you can buy
    KONTAKT 1.5, the flagship sampler, for half the price!

    The "KONTAKT Crossgrade Summer Special" is available
    for a mere 199.- US Dollar/Euro - a savings of 50% on
    the Recommended Retail Price. This offer is valid for
    all registered users of INTAKT, KOMPAKT or a NI sampler
    which comes with a library by East West, Zero-G, Best
    Service or Garritan. Owners of the Sibelius 3 KONTAKT
    Player Gold also qualify.

    KONTAKT 1.5 is a fully-equipped software sampler with
    innumerable functions for designing and playing
    sample-based instruments. Thanks to its comprehensive
    array of features, KONTAKT reaches far beyond the
    possibilities of other samplers. Naturally, the sample
    libraries belonging to your KOMPAKT/INTAKT instruments
    or your KONTAKT player, can be imported into KONTAKT
    allowing you to sculpt them even further.

    The KONTAKT Crossgrade Summer Special is only available
    until the 31st of August 2004 and only in the NI Online
    Shop.

    Of course not buddy. I just purchased Kontakt three weeks ago at a much higher price. You know, I should have waited a bit longer. Just blowing off some steam. Oh well...

    As a relatively (and smitten!) new user of the Garritan Personal Symphony Orchestra I am wondering whether to take up this offer........I have learned so much about GPO in the short time I have had it (SO much more yet to learn of course!) so I would very grateful for any information about ways in which the full Kontakt 1.5 would enhance working with GPO.

    With GPO, I still use the player version even though I own full Kontakt. If you plan on using other orchestral libraries like Alan's acoustic bass (plug for Alan), or making your own sample libraries then you'll need the full version. If not, I'd say, stick with the player and GPO Studio.

    First of all and foremost, if you decide on kontakt 1.5, after installing the software and registering immediately download the patch(upgrade) 1.5.3. You will need the upgrade if you plan on using GOS / lite for the Giga Batch Conversion tool. The tool IS NOT in Kontakt 1.5.

    How well does the GOS conversion work with Kontakt? That might be enough reason in and of itself for me to buy it as I have GOS for giga sitting on a shelf ever since I abandoned my PC for a new Mac with Logic/GPO...

    As soon as you start using it, you get 16 channels instead of 8 so you use fewer instances for your arrangements which gives you a little more cpu to work with. Then there is disk streaming - GPO is getting this in forthcoming patch i believe though. You can also adjust the programming of the instruments to suit, so for example you could combine the flute vibrato/non vibrato/flutter instruments into one keyswitched instrument if you know how.
