KOMPAKT is a streamlined sampler, powered by the KONTAKT engine, that ships with a comprehensive library and can import the most common sample formats. The factory library contains a wide range of instruments like pianos, basses, loops, drums, guitars, strings, and more from the East West and Zero-G libraries. KOMPAKT is a quick way to build a production-ready instrument collection, and it can also import KONTAKT, Gigasampler, HALion, EXS, AKAI, and other common formats.

KOMPAKT's multi-mode filters, envelopes, and LFOs give a wealth of creative possibilities. Integrated reverb, chorus, and delay effects give each sample life and depth.

KOMPAKT offers professional details allowing for convincing realism of acoustic samples. Direct from Disk playback lets samples be as large as available hard drive space. Eight-part multitimbrality and 256 voice polyphony allow lush arrangements for top productions.

KOMPAKT features a selection of sounds from the East West and Zero-G libraries. Shipping on three CDs, the two gigabyte library includes acoustic and electric pianos, basses, drums, loops, and guitars. Realistic orchestral strings and solo instruments mix perfectly with choirs, brass, and percussion. The world of synths is also covered with leads, pads, basses, and much more.

KOMPAKT's interface doesn't let technology get in the way of creativity. An integrated browser with full drag and drop support makes it easy to find the perfect sound. All important instrument parameters can be immediately adjusted without the need to page, scroll, or fumble through a manual. KOMPAKT puts the world's finest sample-based instruments at your fingertips.

INTAKT will be available in the first quarter of 2003 at a suggested retail price of $ /€ 199.
