    Anyone Using This Library With Kontakt 2?

    This Celtic Library, at[ http://www.bigfishaudio.com/4DCGI/detail.html?350 ], from Big Fish Audio, seems to be exactly what I've been searching for. The only issue is that I'd have to convert either the giga or the akai to Kontakt's nki format to make it work.

    Though K2 claims conversion capabilities for both, is there anything I should be aware of or wary about before I purchase this? Are there any advantages to getting the giga instead of the akai or vice versa? Does one convert better than the other?

    Also, if anyone around here has any experience with the library, I'd appreciate any observations or opinions. Thanks.

    Michael

    I don't own this Celtic library, but I've already converted libraries to
    the nki format. If've used the Giga format, and besides some minor
    problems with Yellow Tools 'Pure guitar' (this library uses 5 velocity
    layers, and for some reason one single layer wasn't configured for 3 or 4
    notes) everythign went fine or could be solved with Kontakts manual.
    Best regards,
    Tom

    This is a good piece of news Tom as I have to convert Pure Guitar myself sometime soon, hopefully. Any tips would be appreciated if you could spare the time.

    The problems showed up with the 'Nylon vibrato' patch, the quietest velocity
    layer of the 'D2' and the second quietest of the 'C#2' were not available.
    You can fix this in the 'Instrument edit' mode in the 'Mapping editor'.
    It's quite easy and you only have to do it one time.
    Best regards,
    Tom
