Nothing sounds quite like Native Instrument's high octane phase modulation software instrument KONTOUR, and nobody can demystify it the way synthesizer wizard Scottie Dugan can!
Scottie starts with a big picture look at what KONTOUR is and what it can do, going over the basics of its powerful Synthesizer Engine and Presets. From there, he takes you step by step through the Basic Controls and explores both interface views, View A and View B.
Next, Scottie dives into the nitty gritty of the instrument, teaching you how to get the most out of KONTOUR's two Oscillators and two built-in Filters. That leads into the next video about the powerful Envelopes that can change the entire feel of the synthesizer.
You'll then see how to set up some truly mind-bending routings in the Mix Busses and put the finishing touches on your tone with its powerful Effects Module. Finally, the series ends with a video on how to use Parameter Mapping and Assignments to make KONTOUR a flexible live performance instrument.
If you're a brand new or experienced user of KONTOUR, watch "KONTOUR Explained" and get the most out of this creative software instrument today!

everything is covered with this in depht tutorial quite well and everything is well explained. the only missing part is a bit of sound design examples e.g. how to make a distorted organ sound or how to make a growling bass, not only to come to a decision, if this synth is the right choice, but also as a trigger for own tweakings.
