  1. Am I the only one who thinks Kontakt is a bitch?
    I tried several times to download and install the free version to try out some Kontakt-based plug-ins, or whatever they may be called.
    Every time I found myself puzzled by the UI, to the degree that it put me off, and made me uninstall the whole suite.
    Now, for me, anything Kontakt-based is contaminated to me, and inconsiderable.
    Pity, because Folds looks interesting.

  2. I’m with you, sadly. NI made themselves very difficult when I first got into software synthesizers. They really need a proper customer service module. They offer many intriguing tools, but internally, they’re a total PITA. It became a permanent deal breaker after the third installation cyclone. NI is on my no-fly list of 5. Life is too short.

    1. > my no-fly list of 5.

      Okay Dave, you put it out there so I’ll bite… What are the other 4 and why?

      (aside: and i have similar feelings regarding NI usability, but there are several of their products — e.g. Reaktor, Spectral Delay, Kore — that are just too good to give up.)
