Kontakt is a software sampler developed by Native Instruments for use in a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) or standalone operation.

It allows for MIDI control of various sound samples through the installation of different sample libraries.

MixWave uses Kontakt as the framework for all our drum libraries, making it simple to install and use one or more at a time on multiple devices and with any DAW or MIDI controller.

Kontakt Player is simply the free version of Kontakt, which allows our users to operate our libraries in the Kontakt ecosystem without needing to purchase anything extra.
