Hi Guys

As one who is relatively new to Mixcraft, and, in fact to any kind of computer generated music in general, I find myself in a bit of a dilemma.
With my tendency to run before I can walk, I recently purchased Requiem light, a sizeable, and somewhat complex choral VST for a project I had intended, in the purest optimism, to attempt.
The problem occurs however, when I find out I need something called Kontakt to load this program into, and I have no idea how to use Kontakt, or if Kontakt can be used with or integrated into Mixcraft 6.
If anyone could offer any advice, I would be most grateful

Thanks :-)

Yes, lots of people use Kontakt in Mixcraft, you just load it as a virtual instrument plugin. Install the 32-bit version of its VST files into your VST folder and Mixcraft will load it the next time you start Mixcraft.

Many thanks guys, appreciate the advice. It all looks very complicated, and as I may frequently be back asking more stupid questions. I'll apologise in advance :-)

Thanks again!
