Vi-elements is dedicated to crafting boutique quality Virtual instruments. Our goal is to create the most musical and natural sounding sample libraries in the world. From complete virtual emulations like the Core Kit, to imaginative renderings of wickedly treated instruments like the Tortured Piano, Vi-elements provides the missing element in the world of Virtual Instruments. Magic! Performance The Core Kit sounds incredible, but it can cripple even the fastest computers when too many instruments are packed into one instance of Kontakt. Although it takes up more tracks, splitting up your instruments like we describe below works well for a number of reasons.
Hi-hat Set-up The Core Kit features one of the most detailed MIDI hi-hats in the world, yet even the most basic controller will have what it takes to command this incredible instrument. In fact, a Roland Octapad with an fd-8 MIDI pedal was used as the main controller when producing and play-testing the Core Kit hi-hats.
DAW set-up The number of samples required to achieve the life like sound of the Core Kit is often too much for one instance of Kontakt to handle. Running multiple instances of Kontakt in your DAW is the best way to keep things running smoothly. Be sure to read the section on DAW set-ups below for more detailed information.
