Hi,

Regarding the use of Epic Horns with Kontakt, how are the keyswitches laid out? Am wondering how many channels I would need for multiple articulations.

Thankyou,
Best Regards,

Tony

You could have everything on one midi track if you use Instrument banks. I know there other ways to do this as well...

..Just a thought.

Hey AJ

Ok, I've done that before (banks). Does the performance tool come with this? Are there any keyswitches at all?

Thanks,

Tony

You'll have to register to get the performance tool which will then load with your instruments.

Hi Tony,

just wanted to add another info:

You will need the Performance Tool as a standalone software additionally if you are still using Kontakt 1.5.

And here´s the good news: The Perormance Tool has been implemented in the programs for Kontakt 2 (using the scripting feature), which makes it much more comfortable to work with!

Both programs are available in your user area after you registered the corresponding Horizon Series products Smile

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the info. I'm using the newest version of Kontakt. I think it's 2.2.3. Not having any other VI products other than Appassionata I'm not really following the concept of the performance tool. Is it used for articulation switching? Am waiting on Sweetwater, I ordered Epic Horns Thurs. but they were out of stock. I'll register it first thing when it gets here.

Thankyou,

Tony
Best Regards,

Tony

Hi Tony,

here is a video that sheds some light on what the Performance Tool (and therefore also the "secret" behind the logic within the Legato and Repetition patches in the Vienna Instruments) actually does Smile, one of our first promotion videos.

I have also moved this thread to our Kontakt Forum.

Hi Paul,

I have a question regarding your videos. At some point you play a string portamento interval but mute the starting note leaving only the transition note, can i ask you how you do that? What hey do i have to press to mute my starting note. Confused

You're doing a good job on those video, assuming that's you?

Thank you!

Hi Joe,

yes, that´s the slick version of me, my younger brothers are still showing these videos to anyone who isn´t supposed to see them..... Wink

I´m using the "Ghost" Trigger here, you can see which key it is assigned to in the Performance Tool (in K2 this is shown in the script window), depending on the instrument. You have to press it before you play the note you want to be muted, of course.

This is of course also explained in the manual that comes with the programs!

Best,

Paul

OK thanks, i need to reed the manual a little more it's true. My understanding of ghost note was a little different, i just didn't realize there was a key for that.Cool

I guess i cant do it here because my keyboard wont go that low being a 61 not only Confused. I'll do it in my sequencer then.

Thanks! [Wink]
