Kontakt (Native Instruments)
Native Instruments Kontakt is a software sampler that can be used standalone but also integrates excellently as a plugin to existing DAWs. Since its release, the sampler has become the industry standard in professional music production due to its great sound and features, as well as its intuitive usability. In addition to the more than 40GB of state-of-the-art samples included with the sampler, Native Instruments also releases great compatible expansions from time to time. Of course, you can also load your own audio files into the sampler, where they can be arranged quickly to create custom libraries. The plugin is rounded off by a well-functioning effects section, in which sounds can be tweaked further. Regardless of the music style, this plugin is the first choice when it comes to professional sampling.
