NI presented Kontakt 4. Besides recent enhancements brought by Kontakt 3.5 to the audio engine, the new version adds a dynamic samples modeling technique (Authentic Expression Technology – that reminds similar technologies from Roland and Yamaha), new impulse response (300), extended settings for performance views, script processor enhancements, search by attributes, lossless samples compression (50% space saved and reduced load time), 10 Gb additional samples content (the library is now 43 Gb) : Choir collection that uses Authentic Expression Technology, two registers of VSL KonzertHaus Organ, solo VSL strings, Vintage (including Mellotron), Band (jazz, funk, rock – including all sounds from Elektrik Piano) and World (see details here).

Kontakt 4 will be available October, 1, and the upgrade from a previous version will cost 149$. Absynth 5 and Komplete 6 have also been announced (Komplete 6 includes KONTAKT 4, ABSYNTH 5, MASSIVE, FM8, GUITAR RIG 4 PRO, BATTERY 3 and REAKTOR 5 for only 339$). The whole NI products are compatible with Snow Leopard, however 64 bits testing won’t start until a 64 bits sequencer/host is available (and will require updated audio interfaces drivers).
