Native Instruments has released a demo version of its software-based professional-audio solution, Kontakt 1.1.

The company describes its solution as the most powerful sampler ever created. It introduces a modular, configurable interface with an advanced sampling engine. That engine furnishes real-time stretching, integrated loop editors, analogue-like filters and more. The solution also offers a visual display of modulation and other audio behaviours. The product ships with 3GB of sounds for use in projects.

The product is compatible with Mac OS 8.6 or later. The demo version is available with limited features and audio resources.

More information on Kontakt 1.1 is available from Native Instruments. It costs 399 Euros – about £245.
