Re: Get your custom Kontakt 2 Scripts here

Thanks Frederick!! :grin:

May I suggest that we post the links for the original threads where the scripts are posted and discussed along with a short description of the script so that this area stays clean and efficient. I'll start by posting a few that caught my eye. Please feel free to add other links too. These are updated periodically with the newest at the top.

Cross fade script using Big Bob's math library

This script provides equal-power crossfade without volume dips.

Big Bob's math library

This is of great use and importance to those who want to use actual log, sin and cos functions in KSP.

BTW There is also a Technical Guide for the Math Library. If you're interested, here is the link to download it.

K2 Table editing utility

http://vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3715

Nils (Kotori) made a utility for editing K2 tables as a list of values. It can extract a table to a value list and it can also export to Kontakt tables. The purpose of the Table Editor is to make it possible to easily setup rescalings with good precision. For example, it can be used to setup rescalings for mod-wheel controlled equal-power crossfading between velocity layers. It's possible to manually enter the table values, paste them from eg. Excel, or write your own formulae - eg. sin(x/127*pi)+0.5 - and calculate the table automatically with an optional normalization to make the values span the whole 0-100% range.

Nils Liberg's Kontakt scripts

http://nilsliberg.se/ksp/scripts/scripts.html

Scripts:

Matrix alternation - articulation switching inspired by Vienna Instruments.
Alternation - setting up sequences of articulations (for a single key-switched VSL instrument)
MIDI Filter - switching articulations using conditions (for multiple non-keyswitched instruments)
Speed control - switching articulations using playing speed (for a single key-switched instrument)
RAM Manager - group level purging, using any sample in a group will mark the group as used
Part Maker - ensemble parts without phasing problems.
Velocity Test - test the velocity response of your keyboard.

Code Module to get Instrument Range

http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3605

Many scripts that we write require the user to specify the Instrument Range from lowest to highest key. Here is a fairly concise way of doing that, using the new KSP string variable enhancements. The User Function named 'Note2Key' can also be generally useful whenever you need to convert from a MIDI note# (60) to the Scale-Tone/Oct format (C3). Because of the string enhancements, the Tones array only needs to be declared one time. After that, any number of calls to Note2Key can be made with minimal in-line code generation.

SIPS -- awesome Legato/Vibrato tool

http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3374

It's out.... the ultimate Legato and vibrato Script for the general public written by Big Bob.

TCS - Tone Color Script

http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3433

There is a new script on the K2 page called TCS - Tone Color Script. (third one)
As you can see it's more of a sound manipulation tool, you can get some crazy pads and textures by manipulating sustain samples or you can change single shot samples. It's like changing the body of the instrument and the strings, so a harp at -9 color would sound like a much smaller harp with smaller strings.

Ultra TKT Update to V1.05

http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3438

The Ultra TKT (machine-gun eliminator) has now been updated to V1.05 which includes the EWQLSO release sample fix previously posted as a patch (on the NS forum). You can now download the new version on Theo's K2 Page. http://www.theokrueger.com/kontakt2.htm

------------------------------------------------------

Intelligent Round Robin Script V1.1

Here is a little script that will make your round robin patches far more realistic when playing 2 notes (or more) at a time. Normally, with a stock RR patch, when you play a chord, each note of the chord cycles through the round RR.... so... if you had an Up/Down bow RR and played a 4 note chord, half the notes in the chord would be up bows and the rest down bows... not very realistic.

Nils Liberg's Kontakt scripting Editor

Here is a useful editor to help in K2 scripting. It's free and it does a great job in keeping things clean and organized:

------------------------------------------------------

Showing/hiding ui controls - "tabbed" interfaces

http://vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3538

As you might know the K2.1 update makes it possible to hide ui controls by moving them to position 0, 0. This makes it possible to do very flexible user interfaces without being limited by the 6x6 size limitation of the UI area.
------------------------------------------------------

Exploring KSP in K2.1 - letting the user enter strings

http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3543

I figured since there isn't any text edit control we will just have to make it ourselves. Here's my take at giving the user a possibility to input text. This can be useful, eg. for naming presets.

-------------------------------------------------------

GPO Kontrol

http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3508

This script can make it easier for GPO users to "bridge the gap" between standard midi methods of volume control vs GPO mod method as well as doing some on-the-fly midi translations, velocity scaling and humanization.

You can get the code at: http://www.ndpcci.com/downloads/gpo_kontrol.txt

What is the EWQLSO release trail fix? Sorry to re-hash old ground; I understand the issue with reverb and legato, but I don't know what the fix is.

Re: Get your custom Kontakt 2 Scripts here

Thanks Frederick and Andrew (and Nils and Bob and Theo). Being new to Kontakt, this scripting thing is giving me a headache as I try to decipher it all. It will make keeping up with everything much easier now that it's all just one click away.

Hi Nick, I think Thonex is refering to the EW 'fix' for the Ultra TKT Script not SIPS. Download the New UTKT and I think it's discussed in the readme file (although the User's Guide seems to no longer be included in the package). I'm going to update the UTKT again soon and I'll try to restore the complete package when I do.

God Bless,

Bob

Re: Get your custom Kontakt 2 Scripts here

They may be moving to new hosts. Their domain registrations don't appear to have changed lately (though my non-existent Swedish is a little rusty, so I'm not 100% sure about Nils).

Re: Get your custom Kontakt 2 Scripts here

Thanks so much for your reposting / relinking of all those very helpful scripts. Being a noob to the world of Kontakt I will be absorbing all I can of these.

I can already see great uses for many of these principles. By shear coincidence, I may have utilized one of the techniques (part of the TKT -repitching by small amounts a snare drum sound to help prevent machine-gun effect) back in the '90's when using an Alesis HR-16 drum machine.

Since there are so many efforts to emulate instruments using ever-expanding libraries, how often are the inclusion of noises / playing "mistakes" as sampled entities being utilized by V.I. composers?

Also, have many scripts been written which allow for other MIDI controller #'s (or other techniques) to be employed to utilize these noises / "mistakes" to enhance realism without compromising the need for "both hands on the wheel" playing styles?

Just curious as a performing composer, and of course I'll continue to search the forum for any breakthroughs with these, but any suggestions or comments welcome.

Hi Justin,

most of your scripts listed above are not on your blog anymore - only the divisi script. I cannot find a donation button either. Where can I find them?


cheers

Re: Get your custom Kontakt 2 Scripts here

This is a drumkit made from a yamaha power special kit, along with a number of cymbals I recorded quite a ways back. Drums are sort of my goto "garage" sound.

GM format layout, with one of my first attempts at a script...
with the following features:

velocity/volume table for groups for "all bass drums", "all snares", "all hh", and cymbals... offsets the velocity/volume of played notes. (works well if you want to get "down" to a lower velocity layer, but raise up the volume to be consistent with the rest of the kit)

three dropdowns that will cycle several sounds to alternate keys so you can choose from several bass drums, snares, or cymbals.

keys are colored to make finding each type of sound easier.

label for bd, sn, cy that shows the most recently hit group name for easy reference

dropdown allows you to pick any individual bd/sn/etc group and adjust the pan, volume, fx send bypass, and reverb

enjoy,
