Kontakt Performance Engine Single

Single Instruments

The Single Instrument allows you to manipulate the included content even further by controlling the start, playback and end points of the various audio files in order to create new and unique performances. Use the saved slots and performance controls to rearrange, control and save the customized performances to meet your arranging and production needs.

The Single Instrument is divided into four sections: Play Window, Sample Cycle, Big Knobs and Effects

- Window Display -

The “Play Window” provides a visual display of the waveform with customizable sample position and behaviour controls.
The “Display Name” provides a visual display for each of the performances being played or triggered.
The “Start” and “Length” displays where the playback head is starting from as well as the current length of the performance.

- Performance and Saved Slot Keys -

There are two ways to control the performance of the Single Instrument; the “Performance” keys (blue keys) and the “Saved Slot” keys (purple keys)

- Performance Keys -

The “Performance” keys allow you to customize and tweak the performance of a single performance and create new and unique performances quickly and easily.
The “Performance” keys (blue) contain all of the various performances for the entire instrument.
“Reset the Start/End Points” allows you to reset the playback points and sample position controls for performance being played.
“Reset Everything” will reset all of the playback points and sample position controls for all of the performances in the entire instrument.

- Saved Slot Keys -

The “Saved Slots” (purple) allow you to store or save a customized performance of the seven saved slot keys.
The “Saved Slot” keys allow you to customize and tweak a single performance and quickly create customized performances that are new and unique within a single performance.
“Reset the Start/End Points” allows you to reset the playback points and sample position controls for the performance being displayed.
“Reset and Save to Slot” allows you to reset the playback points and sample position controls for the performance being displayed and then save that reset file to the saved slot.
“Reset All Slots” will reset all of the “Saved Slots” with the pre-loaded, default instrument performances.
“Reset Everything” will reset all of the customizations to both the “Performance” keys as well as the “Saved Slot” keys.

- Behaviour Controls -

The “Behaviour” controls allow for the customization of the “Start” and “End” points.
“Snap Off”, places the playback points into free mode.
“Snap On” allows the playback points to snap to the determined slice or grid points.
“Snap to Slice” will cause the playback points to lock to the pre-determined slice points.
“Snap to Grid” turns the behavior to “grid mode” allowing the playback points to lock into a grid.
“Grid” mode allows for the range to be set from a range of 1/1, all the way down to a 1/32 note.
The “Sample Position” provides custom controls for adjusting the instrument’s performance. These controls allow you to quickly and easily, tweak and customize the audio performances to meet your production needs.
“Begin” controls the start position of the playback head.
“Start” controls the start position of the loop point.
“End” controls the end position of the playback head or loop position.
“Link Starts” button “On”, links the Begin and Start heads, allowing for simple looping of audio files.
“Link Starts” button “Off”, un-links the Begin and Start heads, allowing for more complex looping options.
“Link Loop” “On”, allows you to freely move the predetermined loop length throughout the performance.
“Link Loop” “Off”, allows you to freely move any of the playback points in order to create a new looping section.
The “Samples” control allows you to choose which of the saved slots will be accessed and performed by the “Auto Cycle” mode.
The “Auto Cycle” mode will start cycling with whichever key has been played and will continue to cycle through “Samples” indefinitely.
When the button “Auto Cycle” is “On”, the mode will cycle through the various saved slots that have been chosen by the “Samples” control.
When the button “Auto Cycle” is “Off”, all of the “Saved Slots” are able to be performed in real-time and the “Samples” control has no affect as to which of the saved slots can be accessed.
The “Big Knobs” control two, library specific, global effects.
Each of the knobs will control the amount or level of the global effect and allow you quickly add character to a performance.
The “Effects” provide global effect and parameter controls for each instrument. The Effects slots contain six different FX slots which can be applied to a single audio file or performance.
Use the FX dropdown menu to choose the categorized effect type.
Turn on/off the FX and adjust the parameters of the FX chosen.
