    KONTAKT 5 takes a bold leap forward with 37 new filters, four new on-board studio effects, updated time-stretching, a new instrument bus system and more. As you will see from the newSTUDIO DRUMMER, for example, it's a deep-rooted update to the KONTAKT platform, allowing us — and you — to create even better instruments and more powerful, expressive sounds.

    KONTAKT 5 includes a rich and diverse sound library with eight stunning Instrument Collections: Choir, Orchestral, World, Vintage, Band, Synth, Urban Beats and the new RETRO MACHINES MKII. In total, you get well over 1,000 different instruments, with over 43 GB of samples, all recorded and processed with meticulous attention to detail and quality.

    Playing highly-responsive instruments is one thing — tweaking, editing and creating instruments is another: KONTAKT 5 gives you both. With a detailed yet consistently straightforward interface, you can easily edit, loop, slice and time-stretch your sounds, pitch shift in real time or tempo-sync with the powerful Wave Editor. 64 integrated effects provide a universal sound design toolset, brought to life by the powerful KONTAKT 5 sound engine with full surround sound support.

    For deep editing, go under the hood and draw your own custom envelopes directly into the sample waveform. Or use step sequencers, flex envelopes and the new filters and effects to take your sound to entirely new places.
