Once again, NATIVE INSTRUMENTS raises the bar with KONTAKT 5 — the latest version of the industry-leading sampler. KONTAKT 5 takes a bold leap forward with 37 new filters, four new on-board studio effects, updated time-stretching, a new instrument bus system and more. As you will see from the new STUDIO DRUMMER, for example, it's a deep-rooted update to the KONTAKT platform, allowing us — and you — to create even better instruments and more powerful, expressive sounds.
Fully functional, both standalone and VST plugin works perfectly fine. VST plugin has been tested with with REAPER 4.71 (also via Wine) and with LMMS 1.0.3.
What does not
In LMMS 1.0.3, Kontakt 5.0 runs well via VeSTige, but the "wrench tool" does not show any proper knob (instead, it shows 512 unnamed knobs that don't do anything, thus not allowing automation). This bug seems to be caused by LMMS itself (see: http://lmms.io/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1409).
What was not tested
Any form of scripting.
