Native Instruments has released a public beta version of Kontakt v3.5 for registered users (you need to be a registered Kontakt 3 owner to join the public beta test).

The Kontakt 3.5 update is said to bring many technological improvements including a revised sampling engine and DFD streaming technology, as well as 64-bit memory addressing under Mac OS X and Windows Vista 64.

This is a pre-release version and should be used with caution in performance-critical environments.

New and improved features include:
  • Compatibility with Windows Vista 64 (XP 64 tbd).
  • 64-bit memory addressing for Mac OS X and Windows Vista 64.
  • New DFD engine with drastically reduced memory footprint.
  • Optimized sampling engine with substantial performance increase.
  • Advanced multiprocessor support.
  • New browser feature for Kontakt Player libraries.
  • Direct MIDI Learn for all sliders and knobs, including performance views.
  • Improved automapping.
  • Bypass button for effect slots.
  • Aftertouch interpretation added to KSP.
  • New “Engine Restart” button.
  • Custom wallpapers for library boxes.
  • Play cursor for Beat Maschine mode in Wave Editor.
  • Pro Tools compatibility under Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
  • Localized info pane in six languages.

IMPORTANT: The public beta version:
  • Will be unlocked with your existing serial number.
  • Requires (and overwrites) a previous Kontakt 3.0.x installation on the same computer.
  • Will expire on July 1st 2009 (the official 3.5 update will be made available before that date).
