NI Releases Mac OS X-Native Kompakt

Version 1.0.2 supports Core Audio, Audio Units, VST and RTAS By Dave Nagel
Native Instruments has released an update to Kompakt, bringing native functionality to Mac OS X. The new version runs as a standalone sampler or as a plugin with a variety of hosts. It's available now as a free update for all registered users.

Kompakt is Native's streamlined sampler, offering more than 200 instruments, sound shaping capabilities and support for Kontakt, Gigasampler, EXS, Akai and other sound formats. The new 1.0.2 update brings full Mac OS X compatibility to the software. (Note that some third-party libraries require a Mac OS X version to function with the new Kompakt software.) It runs as a standalone application and also supports Core Audio, Audio Units, VST and RTAS. Native has also released a separate Mac OS X extension for Kompakt called Direct From Disk, which allows the software to stream samples directly from the hard disk. A previous version of this extension is also available for Mac OS 9 and Windows.


Kompakt 1.0.2 is available now as a free update for all registered users. For more information, visit http://www.nativeinstruments.de.
