Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Really Helpful - Really Useful! Like most (I assume) I haven't spent much time with Kontakt's Factory Library. But I was wrong!. Eli is one of my very favourite trainers. He bring extensive knowledge and a fair amount of passion to his videos. This video was really interesting. I didn't realise that Kontakt was so powerful. I have watched other Kontakt videos but this is one I will be revisiting the most. I especially liked Mod Wheel Amp & pan Routing, Setting Up Key Switches and From Deconstruction to Reconstruction. Eli shows you how you can literally create (recreate) unlimited instruments. (especially If you are into sound design ) And I think I now have an inkling as to how Kontakt developers work their magic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Deeper into Kontakt... This is a very efficient series for those of us that are interested in going 'all the way into' Kontakt. Kranzberg clearly illustrates by example some very powerful techniques for creating unique sounds and beats with the Factory Library. Very useful not just for recording artists in the electronic and cinematic genre like Dreamamine, but for anyone using NI to produce music!
