Now, you could say that programs that specialize in certain tools or their subtools may be only narrowly utilized and that their usefulness limits themselves to the original aim of the software. Well, it wouldn't be far away from the truth, it seems, as Kontakt Player in this situation fits right into this category, posing as a player intended for selected KONTAKT Native Instruments, libraries, and offering their own on that matter.

So, let's list some features of the software, these are the detailed creation of samples and their following editing, use of various libraries which can all be accessed directly in the program, composition making, ability to turn in features of the application into a plugin for other sources, so consequently it can be adjusted and expanded to your liking all the same. Now while the list may seem big for that it is, in reality, all the things KP gives out to you would probably fit an average user at most, even more likely a hobbyist if anything, mainly due to the mainstreamness of the tools and absence of some other features that would be used by professionals.


  • Considerably intuitive interface, having more of a classic look from the design side
  • Various plugins, tools, and libraries are all built-in and ready to be used
  • Many options for different ways of playing and recording the audio file, as well as adjusting its speed, tone, or any other parameter needing changes
  • Plethora of instruments to try and habituate to, having high-quality sound and being genuinely well done
  • Convolution effects, impulse responses
  • Easy importing of new samples and formats
  • 19 effects for diverse ways of toning, acoustic, and other familiar soundings

It would be right to call the Kontakt Player something like an average one, not really reaching the stars with its functionality, while also being just as helpful to the medium musician in the long run. It has many tools that mostly do the job well, a good amount of libraries to support them, and a pleasant interface/working environment to create in.
