The solo piccolo is 8.2 GB in size as a result of its sheer richness in quality content, so keep in mind you will need at LEAST 20 GB of space to download the rars, and then extract them. There are six mic positions, including LDC, SDC and Ribbon spots so you can even choose your type of spot mic, and really control the character of the recorded sound, as well as an orchestral spot pair, a stage position and a room position.
You are even able to control the level/volume of the key sounds/mechanics of the piccolo, and the sound of the musician pressing the keys will also be louder depending on how hard you press the key on your MIDI keyboard (velocity).
One feature we are exceptionally proud of is the intuitive trills articulation system, which allows you to play any trill/tremolo within the piccolo's playable range up to a perfect fifth (seven chromatic notes)... See the demo video for an insight in to how this works!
This instrument requires the FULL VERSION of Kontakt 4, or above (so it will also run in Kontakt 5 perfectly). The full version of Kontakt 4, is not the free "Kontakt Player", which can be downloaded, it is the full retail version which can be purchased from Native-Instruments' website.
