everything from strings to keyboards to
drums and it’s really like a central
part of my workflow and also because I’m
selling contact instruments since last
year I decided to show my beginner
subscribers you know the basic stuff
about contact like the folder
architecture the way to load instruments
the load the way to use it to actually
make beats in your dog so follow me
through these basic concepts as I show
you how to use contact and make beats
let’s go so the first thing I want you
to understand is the folder architecture
of contacts instruments and libraries
here we have all of my complete
libraries and if we click on any one of
those you’ll see pretty much the same
structure where you have documentation
which is the manual the instruments
which are the nki files that you load up
into contact the samples in this case
these are compressed native instruments
format but sometimes you’ll have
literally the wav samples these are the
resource files in which you have the
scripts and information on which image
to put on the the GUI and stuff like
that and finally this n i CNT file which is
the file that allows you to load up a
library inside of the library browser in
contact let’s take a look at some other
types of contact instruments let’s look
at for example my latest sub library
it’s an 808 instrument that I’ve
programmed and it’s up for sale by the
way on delicate viscom and here if you
go to the samples folder I do not use
the native native instruments
compression format so you can literally
have these
wav files you can play them like this so
whenever you have a contact instrument
you can also just go in the samples
folder and drag and drop in your enter
your da for example the the samples if
you don’t want to use contact so the two
main things that you have to look out
for when you have a new contact library
is the samples folder if you just want
to use the samples and where are the nki
files next up I’d like to show you how
to load contact onto a software
instrument track inside of Logic Pro X
so first of all let’s begin by creating
a software instrument track and once
this track is set up you’re going to
want to go to instrument here and load
up native instruments contact now by
itself contact is an empty shell here
you see my library browser but you want
to pay attention to this empty black
spot here which is the space where you
can load up samples instruments
libraries so first of all let’s go back
to my hard drive here into the completes
folder so there’s this first file
browser you can use for any type of wav
file or contact instruments you want to
load up what we’re going to do here is
go to the instruments folder and now you
can either double-click or drag and drop
any of this these dot nki files so let’s
try that alright so now the library is fully
loaded and I’m ready to play it
now I’d like to show you how to add
these libraries to the library tab so
here at the top you have add library and
because all of my libraries are pretty
much loaded up I’m just going to go down
here because lately I’ve changed hard
drives and now it contact cannot locate
certain libraries so if we want to load
up for example the scarbee pre base
library we can just go here into locate
and we’re going to try to find where
this dot and i CNT
you remember this file that i’ve
mentioned earlier which has the
information regarding this little image
and instrument browser so we’re going to
click on the Browse folder button and
here if i go back to my complete folder
and obviously you have to know where on
your hard drive reside all of these
libraries and here i should have the
scarbee pre based library and if i click
enter so i’m going to click ok enter my
password and here you go
now you could click on instruments and
in this library there’s only one
instrument and here you have it just to
show you the other example let’s say the
kinetic metal I’m just going to remove
it and if it were a brand-new library
that that I just had the bot I would
click on add library and here click on
kinetic metal press enter and kinetic
metal is now available and I can just
use all of these instruments drag and
drop them here and boom
I’m ready to use this library okay now
let’s try something different let’s try
to just load up a wave sample in contact
and create an instrument with it there
are two ways to create an instrument you
can either double click and it’s going
to create this empty slot where you can
add the effects and put the samples on
your MIDI keyboard and edit the wave if
there were samples loaded up but my
preferred way of doing this is just
let’s remove the instrument first my
preferred way of doing this is just to
go oops sorry
you don’t need a browser for now let’s
say we go back to this 808 I can just
take a wave sample and drag it and drop
it into the blank space here and it’s
automatically going to create this
little instrument interface and if you
click on the wrench to edit the wave
sample you can go into mapping first and
mapping is what contact does to make the
sample playable on all keys
okay now I’m not going to go into all of
the options like the sampling options
and and all the effects but just go so
it goes to show you that if you just
drag and drop a WAV file into contact
you can already play it on your MIDI
keyboard let’s take a drum hit let’s go
into this smoke two samples library and
in the samples I’m going to use one of
these traps snares so again I’m just
dragging and dropping the sample into
contact so as you see automatically
contact has mapped this snare to all of
the keys so it makes it very easy to go
and you know loose these typical trap
snare rolls but what I want to show you
is once again if we click on the wrench
you can add effects on all of these
little squares here so we’re going to go
into insert effects and the first thing
I want to do is add an EQ so there’s a
bunch of different types of EQ I prefer
the ssl g eq here because you have more
flexibility and control over the sound
and you have four bands of EQ here and
if for example i wanted to take some of
the high end off I could just go go like
this and maybe add a little bit of body
to it so here instead of creating a bell
around 700 I’m going to create a bell
around let’s say 200 and right just like
this next I’d like to put a compressor
on the sound so I’m going to go into
effects again and add this compression
plug-in and I really like oh I know that
contact is a bit cluttered but always
look on the left for the presets any of
these effects will come with a bunch of
different settings that can be very
useful just to get going
so in this case I’m going to go press on
pre here which stands for preset I’m
going to use well let’s say the track
slammer just so we really really hear
what we’re doing with the compressor so
once this is done I kind of like the the
trail that it gives off but I’m just
going to ease off ease off on the
threshold a bit and if you want to see
the before and after difference there’s
always a little B here which stands for
bypass and you can so really adds a lot
of regression I really really like the
the compressor in contact and finally
let’s finish off this effects tour with
a reverb so in effects here you have a
two different types of reverbs there’s a
reverb but there’s always also the
convolution reverb which to me sounds a

online training

I don’t know realistic and natural so in
here again there’s a bunch of presets
let’s try a real plate reverb one of
these e2 45s and let’s go for medium
trail 1.7 seconds obviously this is way
too much but again here look there is a
dry and a wet dial so I’m just going to
ease off on the web and again by
by passing it and here you have it so
there’s really really so many options in
terms of effects just inside of contact
okay so to wrap up the tutorial I want
to create a little beep just using
lynda library login to show you the
power of this sampler I’ve created three
software instrument tracks here on the
first one I loaded up my drum kit smoke
two on the second track I loaded up
signal by output which is going to help
us create a little arpeggiator sequence
and on the third track I want to show
you how to load up contact load up an
instrument so first of all obviously you
need to have a software or MIDI
instrument track set up in your arrange
window and on the input of this track we
are going to go into our VST or in this
case a u folders and find Native
Instruments kontakt-5
and click on this stereo for the sake of
the presentation I hid the browser but
you can always click on the browse and
then here kontakt 5 tutorial
well obviously again you need to know
where your you are storing your contact
libraries and instruments so once that’s
that is done you either drag and drop or
double-click on the nki file you want to
load up on the track and here you have
it now I can play my 808 to start off
this beat I’m going to lay down a little
arpeggiator sequence I have a MIDI
keyboard setup so it’s plugged into my
computer by USB and I can play the notes
like this if you don’t have a MIDI
keyboard that’s not a biggie you can
always write down MIDI information with
the pen tool for this first track. I’m
going to use my keyboard and later on
for the drums I’m going to show you how
to do that with the pen tool so let’s
record a little something
right so this trick on how to use contact so
thank you for watching and go out and
make bangers English (auto-generated)
