What is Kontakt?

Okay I know this seems like a nooby question
But genuinely, what is Kontakt?
Like, as far as I can make out it's a sample loader....if that makes sense
As in you run samples through it....and off you go making drum tracks and such

How do you go about getting a full version of it?
As far as I can see they only have the demo on native instruments website.

It's just a sampler, yes. And unfortunately it's very expensive and the free version only supports paid libraries - which is a shame, since freeware like Big Mono is amazing.

Oh fair enough
The free version only supports paid libraries, what do you mean by that?

That you have to pay for their sample libraries, I've never used Kontakt but I assume you can't use samples with different extensions with it (like samples you can find on the internet for free).

There are a lot of free libraries for kontakt, but there sounds usually aren't great. Session strings is a great add on for it really quality and the African instrument set is really cool.

Ive been told that the sampling algorithms are top notch and most the people i know whos opinion i trust rave about kontakt. I haven't had time to learn much about sampling as been Mega busy learning synthesizers but kontakt deserves a look see but unfortunately it is really expensive for all the add ons.

Most software daws have a built in sampler that will basically do what this does for free.
