    Talking Scripts for Practical Jokes in Kontakt2

    To continue what I started on another thread….



    Since I am waiting for the UPS guy to deliver my Kontakt 2 upgrade, I have been drooling for it…partly for the musical applications, but mostly for the potential practical joke applications for the scripting language . Here are some examples I have thought up. Please feel free to add more:

    1) Midi Hang - Filter out MIDI note-offs

    2) WTF Warped Record – Random pitchbends during play


    3) 88 card shuffle – play one key, sound 88 notes at once

    4) Unlimited Polyphony Test – combination of 1 and 3 (also known as the Streaming Hard Disk Burner)

    5) Perfect Pitch Tuner (Transpose all input up a minor 2nd and see if anyone notices before it’s too late)

    6) Crazy Piano Man - Invert the function of the Sustain Pedal

    7) Rush Head ( partial all loops to play in 7/8 )

    8) Locrian Only Arpeggio Mode (Self explanitory)

    9) Auto-Harmonizer (in tri-tones of course)

    Another way to do this is to mix 48 and 44 sample rates.

    Or re-map everything to Hungarian Minor!

    How about constantly random pitches on all 88 keys. That you can't turn off.

    Or random tempo changes.

    Or constant chopsticks on all 88 keys.

    That would drive you insane pretty quick.

    Hehehehee.

    Cheers,
