Playing ASR 10 samples on Kontakt

I have come across a Keith Emerson sounds CD where his Hammond and Moog were sampled. It is in ASR 10 format. Can the samples be loaded into Kontakt?

When you start up Kontakt, you'll see an "import" tab. That's were conversions from other stuff happen, including prompts as to where to save etc. Section 12 of the Kontakt manual goes into a lot of detail as to the nuts/bolts of this.

the manual says Kontakt can Read these CD Rom's .. i think this is the site you are looking at right ?? 79.95 for Keith Emerson ..

https://syntaur.com/asr-cd.html#scd4

or Ensoniq ASR10, ASR-X, EPS Series, TS10, TS12 Sample Library CD-ROM

i tried to find a place that you could get One ASR-10 Test File ... or a way to create one to see if KOntakt would import it ..

maybe someon here with Chicken or that has a CD rom can Zip File transfer you One File to try out ..

cheers john

I don't know if kontakt will read it but it looks as though it should read it. but I'd think that compatibility is there also on the latest version too. garth at chicken systems probably did the code for the compatibility. so you could phone chicken systems maybe

Yup. I bought patches for my Yamaha TX81Z and Casio CZ-1000 back in the late 80's from him. He goes back way further than that too.

if anyone has an ASR-10 file they could upload (zip file so it does not get corrupted) i would be happy to test it with Kontakt .. it says it will reac CD's but not sure if it will read straight files ..

anyone ?? Bueller !!

I've thought about doing this but always end up just triggering my ASR via midi instrument.

Good luck

ASR samples are just raw PCM right? So you can just rename the efa file or what not, and any music program can read it. You won't have the effects or parameters that maybe the preset had added to it, but you definitely should have the raw sound.
