Tovusound have done it. They have released a version of their foley instrument Edward that is Kontakt Free Player compatible. So how there is no need to own a full version of Kontakt to use their foley instrument. Even better they have dropped the price to $79.
What they have done is added Kontakt Player and full NKS support to Edward Extended and re-named it Edward Foleyart Instrument, which long-standing users will remember the name from our first release which now will no longer be supported.
Edward and Edward Ultimate are now set up for expansion packs and they tell us that they are working hard on some AddOns to release this year.
