how to hook up kontakt 5 to ardour 3
I apologize in advance for the following topic that might be seen as poking into a well kept open source environment.
My two questions regard the following:
Can Kontakt 5 player and for example N.I. run on a 64 bit system with Ardour 3 in any way?
If yes, is somebody running it and can give me a briefing on how to set it up right ?
I tried for a couple of weeks up till now and constantly ran into obstacles with wineasio and other platform and linking issues that seem to be on a programming level, which I am currently unable to solve or even grasp.
Before you decide to ignore me with all this 'proprietary' stuff please consider the following:
1st. I want to continue to support the Ardour project, because of its spirit and the hope that it will evolve over time
2nd. the pressure my film school is currently excercising at the producing level is so huge that it is very hard to keep up with the working pace which is required there.
I realize that if I somehow could get "industry standard" libraries working with ardour (or even just linux?), I might be able to at least build mockups in a flexible manner that could allow a better workflow between me and e.g. directing students
Does that make sense somehow?
I would be glad if somebody replied, although the commercial stench seems to be everywhere by now...
If there is concern of the proprietary turn this thread is or might be taking, I'll also gladly communicate via mail
That said, feedback would be much appreciated.
