Native Instruments just released an update to Kontakt 4.1 and it now allows you to load instruments in the background.
This means, when you pull up a sound from the Kontakt library, you no longer have to wait for the full sound to load!
This is huge! I HATE waiting for large libraries and instruments to load, but now, they load in a few seconds, which let’s you quickly get to what you want to do, make music.
This may seem small, but in a world full of huge software libraries this is a huge plus for Kontakt users….trust me, watch the video and see the difference.
Some libraries used to take minutes to load, depending on the size, huge ones like Abbey Roads Drums are notorious for taking ages to load up.
With this new feature, I don’t feel so put off on actually using Abbey Roads drums now.
