About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I've been a music educator for many years. My instrument is piano. I continue to study advanced theory, orchestration, conducting and the technical aspects. My latest studies have been with Hummie Mann at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program. Great program, I highly recommend it for composers in all mediums.

Currently teaching and composing a piece for small chamber ensemble to be performed in Seattle. Also, deciding on virtual instrument programs to include in my current studio to create demos of various lengths and genres.

Hi Laura,
I'm in your situation, 6 month ago,
I thinking of getting Kontakt 4, but like you said it's a big and pricey decision.
I just wanted to know if you were still happy with it ?
And Have you bough other things since ?
Thank you
Daniel Monge

Thanks Ray!

Yes I agree, that's the monster! I have decided on Kontakt 4 and found a great price on the bundle which was recommended by other composers as well. And it's my understanding that if I do a thorough reading of the manual it'll be easy to wrap my head around. I'm excited to get into it!
