Tod, thank you for the response! For the present I can repeat manually, what is shown in the video, with my loops and the method works quite nice. Now I'd like to script this routine. Did you do it by the means of macros using available Reaper (built-in or third-party) scripts or you had to script it all by yourself from scratch using Lua/EEL/Python?I created custom macros in Reaper to do all that.
Acon Digital Acoustica and DSP Quattro are a lot more forgiving than Logic.ah, i figured it out in logic pro. not easy to see. and this is a note for my future self cuz im sure ill forget lol.
select file and open in "file" editor below. select the loop points and hit the loop icon.
on "edit" on the file editor menu:
select: selection>sample loop.
then select "write sample loop to audio file."
now the loop point inside the file will be shown on kontakt and will work in omnisphere.
whats wierd is that creating loop points in kontakt and exporting/making a new instrument, wont embed the loop points so they appear in logic or omnisphere. unless im missing something .
Which, fwiw, is quite a pity and an oldtime request of mine. But then, there's so many things so fundamentally wrong in Kontakt that I have completely given up on any hopes.Creating loops in Kontakt is non-destructive, it only writes loop info into the NKI, not the samples.
Could be optional. Just as it is with any sample editor.Not really a pity, it's more flexible IMO because in the same patch you can use one sample many times with different loop points. Its main intention is not to be a sample editor. Burning loops into samples is a feature of sample editors, not sample players. Just my 2c.
Except Kontakt remains the most successful product they have next to Komplete. So, nothing wrong there.There's something very wrong in NI land.
Either way it's not marketed as a sample editor, which was Nabeel's point. "Sampler" can mean either "sample recorder" or "sample player".And for the record: No, technically Kontakt isn't a sampler but a sample player.
There's exactly one reason for that, and that's because they were first and kinda defined a standard for plugin samplers. Others than that, Kontakt development is an embarassing shame. And yes, I could elaborate, and no, I'm *far* from being the only one with that opinion. In fact, I and *many* other did already elaborate - but NI just doesn't care about that at all. And it's not only like that with Kontakt but with almost all of their products.Except Kontakt remains the most successful product they have next to Komplete. So, nothing wrong there.
Erm, wasn't GigaStudio the one who really defined things (direct from disk streaming, etc.)? The only thing Kontakt added to the basket was scripting, really, which led to...There's exactly one reason for that, and that's because they were first and kinda defined a standard for plugin samplers.
It's not. They just have a different vision of what it should be than you might. It's became an authoring platform rather than a creative sampler, really. Again - different vision. Want a creative sampler? Falcon is great for that (and I use it for that exact purpose too).Others than that, Kontakt development is an embarassing shame.
