    Stradavari Violin- Halion version? Kompakt Player version?

    I have been interested in the Stradavari Violin but refuse to buy any library that requires me to use Kontakt. No offence to those who love Kontakt, but I cannot stand it. I used Kompakt Player VSTi's with no problem, though. Has anyone heard of a Kompakt Player version or a Halion version coming soon?

    Thanks!

    I'm 99.9999999% sure Garritan will be releasing a Kompakt 2 player version. NI's own website for Kompakt 2 lists the Solo Violin as an example (there's even a screen shot).

    I think it's very near release.

    You could ask in Gary's Forums too

    A K2 player version is coming. Nobody has said anything about a Halion version. Since the Strad depends heavily on K2's scripting, I doubt that a Halion version is even possible.

    Cool! I will wait patiently then.

    Hi quantum7,

    JPIII and Dan are right, there is a Kontakt 2 version coming soon. The Solo Stradivari will be one of the first instruments to use the new NI player.

    As Dan points out, the Strad depends heavily on K2's scripting, and also instrument body convolution, and Halion does not yet offer these features to make a version of this instrument possible.
