Using Kontakt as a VST plug-in In Cubase and Nuendo

Users of Steinberg’s Cubase or Nuendo sequencers can use Kontakt as a VST plug-in. These instructions have been prepared in Cubase 5, although Kontakt may also work in earlier versions if the computer meets the system requirements.

Once the project is open, go to the Devices menu and choose VST Instruments:

When the VST Instruments window appears, click in the first available slot in which “no instrument” is listed.

A popup menu will appear; choose Kontakt. An alert box will appear asking if you want to create a MIDI track assigned to the Kontakt plug-in. Click Create.

The Kontakt window will appear, and a MIDI track will be created, transmitting to Kontakt’s MIDI channel A-1. When it is record-enabled, it will send any incoming MIDI played on your controller into Kontakt.
