How do you use Kontakt?

LASS is a Kontakt based sound library. That means you load LASS into Native Instrument’s Kontakt sampler playback engine to play LASS. Kontakt in-and-of-itself is a very deep program affording great flexibility to users.

While the “basics” on how to use Kontakt are beyond the purview of Audiobro’s support for LASS, we will in fact answer many Kontakt related questions as value-added support for LASS. Also, our private support forums have over 16,000 queries relating to LASS and Kontakt. You might have a good chance in finding your Kontakt-related questions already answered if you do a search in our forums.

That said, we expect our users to have a basic understanding of Kontkat. It is freely downloadable via NI’s site. For basic Kontakt related questions, please use Kontakt’s official forums here.

LASS Full System Requirements

  • 16.4 GB with loss-less compressed audio files (approximately 24 GB uncompressed)

Software Requirements:

Supported Interfaces:

  • Stand-alone, VST®, Audio Units™, RTAS®, ASIO™, Core Audio™, DirectSound™, WASAPI™, AAX1®

Minimum System Requirements:

  • Windows — Windows 7 or Windows 8 (latest Service Pack, 32/64 Bit), Intel Core Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2 GB RAM (over 4 GB recommended – the more RAM, the better!)
  • Mac — Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 (latest update), Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM (over 4 GB recommended – the more RAM, the better!)
  • Note: Mac 10.6.8 users are telling us Kontakt 5.2 (and therefore LASS 2.5) works on their system although it is no longer officially supported by Native Instruments.

Recommended System Requirements:

Any decent 4 core (or greater) machine running a 64 bit capable operating system (newer Mac OSX, Windows 7 or Vista). There are many users who use LASS on one machine without issues (we’ve been accused of being overly cautious with the “recommended” system requirements — especially considering some of today’s faster computers — 4 and 8 core machines). And even for those who have lesser computers, you can use the full mixes or you can even use LASS to the fullest by rendering midi tracks.
