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 :-)

Hi,

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.

Here's what you're looking for: http://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/synths-samplers/kontakt-5/

A couple times a year they have a 50% off sale.

Prepare yourself for a fairly steep learning curve.

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!
