ZoneMatrix transforms a single instance of Kontakt into a multi‑instrument performance environment.
Back in those hedonistic pre‑pandemic days when people used to play live, keyboard players increasingly turned to managing multi‑instrument rigs with software — MainStage being the tool of choice for Mac users, or Camelot for PC, Mac and iOS. Any combination of instruments can be addressed simultaneously or separately via key splits, layers, velocity switching and various other means of control, using only a small number of physical keyboards, or even just a single one. With a single gesture the entire soundset and configuration is changed; an entire gig’s worth of complex setups can be chained together and stepped through with a single command.
Whether or not this concept was the inspiration for ZoneMatrix, independent developer Hagai Davidoff realised that such an approach could be developed to run inside Kontakt as a ‘plug‑in’ KSP script to control multiple Kontakt instruments in a similar way.
Installation is straightforward; from the downloaded ZIP file, drag the ZoneMatrix .nkp file and the ZoneMatrix folder to the specified locations on your system drive. These locations are described clearly in the user manual. ZoneMatrix now appears as a user preset in the list of KSP scripts. Click and it...
