"Kontakt Rocks my world"
What else do I need for software sampling? Nothing I think.
Out of all the other soft samplers I've used I'd say what makes this best is how good it sounds stretching or compressing samples. Using the Time Machine 2 mode I'm able to get great results and then modify it live for instant granular fun.
I love the import functionality, I was able to easily import my Akai sample CDs and keep them in my database. There are tons and tons of things this thing can do, but the routing seems confusing sometimes.
Ease of Use
Once you learn the workflow in Kontakt it's really easy to get in and edit one or multiple samples I'd definitely recommend getting the tutorial to get you up and running.
No other soft sampler sounds nearly as good.
Pretty good price, just wish the tutorial was free with it.
Manufacturer Support
I had to move Kontakt from my old laptop to my new one and I was able to have it all taken care of in a reasonable amount of time, but what was great was that I got some good suggestions for working with Kontakt.
The Wow Factor
I wasn't so sure that I wanted it till I got it and found out how much more editing I could get done in a short amount of time.
