Somebody asked you what your favorite plugin is and you answered: Kontact...
what do you do in Kontact that one couldn't do in Live's Sampler or Logic's EXS? What do you use it for? Realistic instruments? beat mangling? I honestly don't find much use for it in my own electronic music. I would use it if I were to do orchestral music...
What do you use it for?
I use it as one would use any sampler - for playing back chunks of digital audio in various states of modification.
I don't use Logic so the EXS point is irrelevant - and when I did use Logic I found the EXS to be clunky and poorly designed. It has probably come on a bit since 2003.
Kontakt is beautiful. Like most NI products it is a masterpiece of complexity and simplicity combined. I cannot imagine a more comprehensive and brilliantly designed sampler.
I prefer Battery for drums.
when are you coming back to Oregon, USA?? I saw you at the Alex Grey show a few years ago in Portland Oregon, and still listen to your music. So do my friends!Ott responded on 10/18/2013 Next question
What kind of EQ do you do on a kick drum? People always talk about cutting here or there, seems arbitrary to me, are there any general rules of thumb?
Do you HP filter out the bottom to stop interfering with the sub?
I find the kick tends to get drowned out as the song builds up layers, not sure how to keep it cutting through.
