Native Offers Crossgrade on Kontakt

HALion, EXS and Giga users get 40 percent discount on Mac and PC version By Dave Nagel
Native Instruments has launched a crossgrade offer on its forthcoming Kontakt 1.1 audio sampler. The crossgrade offers users of HALion, EXS and GigaStudio/GigaSampler a 40 percent discount on Kontakt for both Mac and Windows. The new version will ship Sept. 1.

According to Native, users who take advantage of the crossgrade do not have to turn in their other software, but can continue using it in conjunction with Kontakt. Kontakt includes a semi-modular architecture, realtime time stretching and resynthesis, graphical breakpoint envelopes and analog-modeled filters. The forthcoming 1.1 release for Mac and Windows adds direct import of HALion, EXS, and SDII files. Import functionality for EMU files (EIII, ESI, and EIV) will be added later this year.


The crossgrade offer affects the following systems:

  • Emagic ESX24 and EXSP24
  • Steinberg HALion
  • Tascam GigaStudio 32/96/160 and GigaSampler 64.

Users of these products can crossgrade to Kontakt 1.1 for $229. It will be available Sept. 1.
