Complete Guide To Kontakt by Defazed

Master the world’s most powerful sampler, Native Instruments Kontakt, in this new online course by Producertech Tutor Defazed. With a career spanning from classic Drum & Bass to the cutting edge of electronic music, in addition to numerous international label releases and a wealth of class-based teaching experience in a number of colleges, Defazed is your ideal guide to the intricate world of sound design!

In this extensive set of tutorials, you’ll not only learn how to use Kontakt to create a wide variety of presets, including drum kits, basses, leads, pads and FX, but you’ll also discover how to use those presets to create a track, as Defazed develops each patch with MIDI clips and automation in Ableton Live.

The course is available for streaming 24/7/365 and includes over 100MB of Kontakt presets, courtesy of Loopmasters, along with the Live projects from the course. You can find assistance on the Producertech forum if needed, as well as regular remix competitions, where you can try out your new skills, and giveaways of new plugins and hardware.

The course is available for purchase for £34.95 GBP.
