A couple of years ago, I wrote a comprehensive book on Native Instruments’ Kontakt, a software sampler that is the de facto standard for modern samplers, entitled Kontakt 2 Power.

There are six videos in this collection, totaling approximately 45 minutes:

- Electric Piano Modulators (8:50)
- Pad with Modulators (7:36)
- Time Machine (3:24)
- Beat Machine (4:47)
