Buy Kontakt 5 Cheap !!INSTALL!!
With respect to the Korg Collections and individual offerings like Korg Extreme, these software emulations include all the sounds that were originally available on EXB-PCM boards, so if these are the sounds that will satisfy your needs these software emulations are a great deal. The original EXBs were $$$ for each board. However, these software emulations lack some of the functionality the original product had, like sampling and some types of file and disk management, some of the more isoteric sound manipulation is also not present. Korg does have big sales a couple of times a year with huge discounts - enough so that the price of the complete Collection is almost as cheap as one of the standalone instruments at MSRP.

There are a lot of cheap and cheerful synths out there, and many of them have nostalgic roots that justify their desirability. But the SK-1 has maintained its popularity over the years, rising above the thousands of other consumer grade keyboards, because its sample engine is just so distinct and easy to use. Record your voice, dog barking, or clang a fork on a glass, and instantly spread the sound across the keyboard. That cheap digital converter sounds unlike anything made by today's higher standards:
As you comment, you think to use the bookstores that come with kontakt, very well, at first it seems to me successful until you get all the operation, then you can go acquiring things from other houses (they are quite expensive).
Well, you have the channels with your instruments, the next step depends on the daw, there are differences, in my case I charge a channel with kontakt (or several kontakt, depending on the number of instruments).
In the container of the DAW for kontakt (wrapper) I have to place a number (INPUT PORT - different for each instance) and in the instrument another channel number, for each instrument.Once configured kontakt I go to the MIDIS channels that I have imported (guitar and cello), I have assigned the kontakt wrapper the number 1 (each instance a different number), the guitar I assigned the channel 1 and the cello the 2 , so in the midi channel of the guitar you have to place in PORT the number 1 (kontakt instance) and in channel 1 for the guitar, 2 for the cello.
Another thing that has to be done in kontakt and that I forgot is to configure the outputs so that the sound goes independent to the mixer and then we can manipulate it, reverb, eq, compressor, etc.)This is easy, you have to open outputs, one for each instrument and assign them in the PROCESSING tab (in FL) 1, 2, 3, etc.
On another channel I add kontakt (we have to have it in a VST folder and tell FL the route, only the first time)in the following way:menu Channels - Add one - kontakt 5 (if it does not appear in the list you have to scan as follows:menu Channels - Add one - More - Refresh - fast scan; it appears in red, click on kontakt 5 and it will be available forever.
Now we open kontakt, we load the violin and the cello, it creates an output by default, but we need another one for the cello.In the outputs tab we can create the ones that we need, in this case another one, the 2.
We have already configured kontakt, now we must relate the channels that we have imported with the kontakt instruments so that they take control.I have changed the default names for those of the instrument, clicking on the channel we open the channel configuration window, in this case we have selected the cello and in PORT we place 1 (instance of kontakt) and in channel the number that we have given to the instrument within kontakt, in this case 2, the violin is 1, the rest is not played, they are inherited midi data.
To get an idea, I have loaded an eq and a reverb into the violin channel of the mixer, now that the kontakt sounds of the libraries are the ones in control, it is time to mix and as a last step, export to wav, mp3 etc, using menu File - Export
This is so gracious of you to post all of this and extraordinarily helpful...thank you a thousand times. I had been on the fence about the DAW but for simplicity's sake I'll download the FL trial and start playing around with this. Given the space requirements for Kontakt I suppose I'll bite the bullet on getting a new laptop, too. This is not a cheap hobby. :-D But I'll configure everything in a few days and see what I can make happen. I feel much better informed than I was a week ago, thank you.
Remember, to work with them, you need the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5 (but some of them work as a standalone VST plugin or standalone application). Libraries are not very cheap, and many of them exceed the sum of one hundred dollars, but you will see that they include sophisticated instruments and thousands of sounds that justify the cost. 041b061a72
