    HOW TO USE A LEGIT (PURCHASED) LIBRARY IN AN UNLOCKED KONTAKT

    DISCLAIMER: This was tested on a Mac, but this solution could also work on Windows.

    I decided to write this tutorial after I’ve spent quite some time trying to get my legit library to coexist in peace with my other (unlocked) libraries. The specific library I have purchased requires Kontakt 5.6.8 or later, so that was one of the issues I had to overcome. I found a solution, that works.

    1. Download and NI Kontakt Free Player
    2. Download and install NI Access
    3. Register and add your legit library to Kontakt Free Player via NI Access
    4. Install NI Kontakt Full (unlocked) 5.6.5
    5. Use only the AU plugin (or VST if you’re on Windows) to use with your DAW - don’t overwrite the standalone Kontakt 5.6.5
    6. Use the Kontakt 5.6.5 standalone to add unlocked libraries (even if they require 5.6.8 - they’ll be added, they just won’t show up in the standalone app)
    7. Use Kontakt 5.6.8 plugin in your DAW to use your legit and unlocked libraries

    Hope this helps someone!

    Hello everyone,

    I have been having a hard time trying keep some libraries in the library tab.. They disappear everytime I restart Kontakt.

    Anyone knows why is this happening?


    Thanks!:bow:

    Sorry for the newbie question, can anyone point me out to the best crk 5.6 version to use on PC?

    Is there also an explanation on the forum on how to use a legit Kontakt version with a Cracked one on PC?

    Thanks!

    Having a weird issue with symlinked 5.7.1: Libraries don't add--period. I run the Library Assistant, it finds and "adds" the libraries and then...nothing. When I start Kontakt, nothing is there!

    Edit:
    That's weird. It seems to be one specific library: Joshua Bell Violin. All the others add. It's in the registry, has an entry in the XML and isn't hidden. Very strange.

    Delete the old XML and then try adding it again. Also, go to Settings and then on the Libraries tab make sure Joshua Bell Violin is made visible (check the box on the left if it isn't).

    If @ponstorygames solution doesn't work...

    Why don't you backup the original nicnt file and generate one with one of the tools available?
    Of course, first remove registry and xml stuff.

    Regarding adding libraries I've found the portable version even more powerful then the "installed" one, but one should be able to use all libraries in both.

    Having a similar issue to the ones mentioned in this thread; cracked kontakt 5.6.8, and legit Spitfire Orchestral Swarm and Spitfire Bernard Herrmann toolkit. The `add library assistant` will add the library, then state that it will appear after reloading kontakt.

    Neither library appears after reloading kontakt. I'll try some of the things mentioned here and report back. Other fairly recent Spitfire libraries and recent libraries add successfully...

    First of all I'm a Kontakt (legit) user now.
    Kontact 5 has been installed and works fine. But... Native Access does not download bundle libraries (the "Kontakt Factory Library", 29GB). After I click on start button a "downloading" status message appears and nothing more. It wait for a connection... wait... wait... wait... an endless wait. Using Google seem I'm the only unlucky guy on Earth.

    Any idea/suggestion?

    Note.
    At the moment the "Factory Selection" only is installed using its own downloader.

    Hey, just installed this version of Kontakt:

    https://audioz.download/samples/kon...-5v568-symlink-fixed-add-library-problem.html

    and I'm having trouble strating the app after adding BO inspire library (legit) it crashes after immediately with no error code. I noticed that after adding the library, no registry entry is created in the current user branch and no "Berlin Orchestra Inspire.xml" is created in Common Files. Could that be the issue, or does it lie in something else? When I delete the HKLM entry for BOI, Kontakt starts again with no hiccups.

    Heyy! I desperately need some help here.. I have original Kontakt 5.6.5 Version, and Spitfire Chamber Strings (Cracked) is running on Demo Mode. Please advice on how I can activate this library, or If i can install a cracked Kontakt version separately to run Cracked Chamber Strings?

    Hello,

    I just moved my system to Win 10 LTSB.
    And my goal is to be able to use the older Kontakt Samples and the newer samples together that work with new R2R schema, in the same song setup. Sounds too familiar?!

    I have been studying all the forum material for a week now. Not just here but also at A.N. as well.
    And the conclusion that I arrived at is this: :woot:

    I have everything Kontakt, that has been uploaded here and elsewhere.
    My question to you fellow music people

    1) What is the best way to set things up in, Multiple Versions of Kontakts working in the same system scenario? Which one is to install and which one to use Standalone?

    2) Which versions would work together better?
    To make my self more clear,

    One way I gathered is installing the old version and using the new version as a standalone.
    Someone can correct me but I believe Ver. 5.5.0.409 is the last version that can load up the older samples.

    So now which version I should use as a Standalone along with installed 5.5.0 version?
    a) Native.Instruments.Kontakt.5.v5.7.3.Portable.WIN
    b) Native.Instruments.Kontakt.5.v5.7.3.Incl.Emulator.WORKING-AUDiTOR
    c) Native.Instruments.Kontakt.5.v5.6.8.SYMLiNK.FIXED.Add.Library.Problem.WIN

    Then there is this;
    Native Instruments - Kontakt 5.7.3 STANDALONE, VSTi, AAX x64 WORKING [12.2017]

    If anyone has time to share experiences or straight up wisdom I would be ecstatically happy and then be in that person's debt.
    I really need to start making music... Lost too much time not making music and I am old, already! So soon too.

    I hope this was NOT too long to bare and thank you...

    PS. I have read everything that has been shared here... and still, :woot: I am

    Okay, so idiocracy has its own rewards...

    I am less baffled by the previous choices that I needed to make because I made them, but of course force of nature, I have new bafflements...

    These are the choices I made: Installed and updated Ver.5.5.0.409

    And then cracked up "Native.Instruments.Kontakt.5.v5.7.3.Portable.WIN

    Standalone works but Studio One doesn't see the folder "Kontakt 5.7.3" but does see the Ver.5.5.0

    Furthermore, when I fired up Studio One, after putting 5.7.3 in, Daw did detect and registered all the new VST dlls fine...

    Some light please???

    Well, it appears as if this place is a bit like; let every man skin his own skunk, kind of a place...

    (applies to Native.Instruments.Kontakt.5.v5.7.3.Portable.WIN)

    Well, actually the coder solved it! There was a 'Modified PluginID.RAR' that had modified Dlls that just created for this scenario,
    in case the Daw doesn't see Dlls...

    So now it does... [​IMG]

    But I have to point out something here that I think it has not been mentioned anywhere else;

    When you get the "Kontakt57Portable" folder before you click on "Install.exe" in that folder, YOU NEED TO MOVE THE WHOLE FOLDER TO

    "C:\Program Files\Native Instruments" or somewhere in your OS Drive...

    Becuase where ever you install it, that's where the DLLs will be waiting for Kontakt to call...
    Also, you need to add the folder, in my case: "C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\Kontakt57Portable\Kontakt 5\x64\VST" to your Daw's VST addresses...

    As far as 8 out and 16 out goes I have:

    Kontakt 5 Portable x64 8out mod
    Kontakt 5 Portable x64 16out mod
    Kontakt 5 Portable x64 64out mod
    All Installed...

    Hey guys,

    I have a problem with the Action Strikes library. I'm running Kontakt version 5.6.5. I can add the library just fine to Kontakt, but whenever I try to load an instrument from it, it crashes. The VST version crashes my whole DAW, the standalone version crashes itself.

    I've tried cleaning the appdata folder of Kontakt, but that doesn't help. Both standalone and VST still crash. I also tried to load an instrument directly, without adding the library. It still crashed.

    I'm kinda out of ideas. Anyone knows what might cause this? My best bet would be that my Kontakt is too new for the library. but I doubt that.

    Thanks

    Help required, I cannot get Kontakt to run in standalone mode, when I double click the icon I get the mouse icon spinning but the app does not load, it is running in task manager, and it runs fine in my DAW but sometimes I just want to play the piano sometimes without going through ableton, its a Win10 64bit PC in case that helps.
    Thanks in advance

    I have a problem with my Kontakt. Loading of Libraries takes extreeeeemely long. I mean it. For example i`m loading Electric Sunburst now and it`s already 15+ mins loading and still not even 50%. I know its a huge library, but its not right. Libraries smaller take about 2-3 minutes to load. On my previous laptop, which was a lot weaker than this one had no problems at all, everything loaded literally in seconds, I changed my laptop, my DAW and now have this problem. I used FL before, now Ableton, but I`ve tried to load on FL aswell, same thing, very very long. Even my Kontakt VSTi loads a lot longer than it used to and it should. For a laptopt with my configurations it should load them instantly. My download of this libraries takes faster than opening it in Kontakt
    Here is my conf:
    Ram: 16GB
    Processor: Intel i7 3630QM 2.40 GHz
    Video: 2 GB Nvidia something :D :D
    SSD system drive
    And 1tb HDD

    [QUOTE = "jjitter, post: 285098, member: 34204"] Hola a todos,

    He estado teniendo dificultades para mantener algunas bibliotecas en la pestaña de la biblioteca. Desaparecen cada vez que reinicio Kontakt.

    Alguien sabe por qué está sucediendo esto?


    ¡Gracias! :arco:[/CITAR]
    Hola como estas esto se debe a problemas con el registro si haz registrado varias librerias con un mismo archivo nicnt en blanco con el código necesario para funcionar solo que tengas que modificar el SNIPD(código de tres dijitos) mas el nombre de la libreria o de la empresa; despues de un tiempo utilizar este método provoca estos resultados lo experimente por cabeza propia esto sebe a que no todo el codigo que estamos agregando es diferente se va repitiendo por mucho que lo modifiquemos; se obtienen los mismo resultados con un programa que crea los nicnt aunque en menor medida, pero llega un momento que puede fallar , uno intenta agregar la libreria la agrega y se desaparece o en estas ultimas versiones como uno no puede ver en tiempo real cuando agregue la librería si no después de un reinicio del programa por que el addlibrary ya no se encuentra en el programa por cuestiones de mejoramientos de seguridad del software , no aparece la Liberia, ahí me doy cuenta de que esta desapareciendo , por esto busque por Internet una solución que es bastante efectiva y no es muy complicada es agregarlas por medio del regedit o el registro de windows si uno sigue los pasos del video uno no necesita nicnt para agregar la libreria tan solo unos cuantos codigos para que se agregue y ahi si kme doy cuenta si se cometio un error pues no se visualizara la libreria pero se que el error fue mio y no fue un error de registro o de un proceso de segundo plano que se ejecuto mal el video se encuentra en español pero si no lo logras comprender contactame soy [email protected] me mandas un correo y ya trato la manera de que lo puedas entender un saludo desde colombia

    [QUOTE = "Elnur Magerramov, publicación: 334009, miembro: 37888"] Tengo un problema con mi Kontakt. La carga de las bibliotecas lleva mucho tiempo. Lo digo en serio. Por ejemplo, estoy cargando Electric Sunburst ahora y ya lleva más de 15 minutos cargando y aún no llega al 50%. Sé que es una gran biblioteca, pero no está bien. Las bibliotecas más pequeñas tardan unos 2-3 minutos en cargarse. En mi computadora portátil anterior, que era mucho más débil que ésta, no tuve ningún problema, todo se cargó literalmente en segundos, cambié mi computadora portátil, mi aplicación de audio y ahora tengo este problema. Utilicé FL antes, ahora Ableton, pero también he intentado cargar FL, lo mismo, muy, muy largo. Incluso mi Kontakt VSTi carga mucho más tiempo del que solía y debería. Para un laptopt con mis configuraciones debería cargarlas instantáneamente. Mi descarga de estas bibliotecas lleva más rápido que abrirla en Kontakt
    Aquí está mi conf:
    Ram: 16GB
    Procesador: Intel i7 3630QM 2.40 GHz
    Video: 2 GB Nvidia algo: D: D
    Unidad de sistema SSD
    Y 1 TB HDD [/ QUOTE]
    En mi caso también me paso tenia un disco HDD donde tenia el sistema cambie a un disco en estado solido y allí pues me toco instalar todo de nuevo y empezaron mis problemas con librerías que antes me cargaban en menos de 2 segundos , ahora tardaban mucho tiempo en cargar pues la solución del batch resave no me valia ni colocar el archivo nkr ( no se si la haz intentado , haciendo el batch resave hacemos que kontakt tenga por así decirlo memoria de donde el va encontrar los samples , si tu sabes donde dejas tus cosas va ser mas fácil encontrarlas en mucho menos tiempo no ?; por eso sale una advertencia antes diciendo que haciendo esto se modificara por asi decirlo la naturaleza de los samples pero no pasa nada, simplemente es como un consejo pero no pasa nada si lo realizas ) , pero bueno no me servia esa opcion , desinstalaba una y mil veces el kontakt pero nada de nada fue desesperante hasta hoy hace media hora que pude encontrar la solucion que fue desactivar el antivirus el windows defender agregue una exclusión de las carpetas donde contenían los samples y automáticamente me empezaron a cargar como estaban antes prueba con eso también , agregando una exclusión en tu windows defender para que el no este protegiendo ni haciendo nada con los archivos donde están tus librerías si tienes algún otro inconveniente no dudes en contactarme para intentar darte una solución contactarme [email protected]

    [QUOTE = "Vega, post: 287535, member: 28524"] Perdón por la pregunta de novato, ¿alguien puede indicarme la mejor versión de crk 5.6 para usar en PC?

    ¿Existe también una explicación en el foro sobre cómo usar una versión legítima de Kontakt con Cracked para PC ?

    ¡Gracias! [/ QUOTE]
    la espondi arriba y de como solucionarla aunque pues esa librería trae su propio nicnt (archivo responsable para que podamos agregar la librería si este no esta pues sale el error library not found) contactame [email protected] o revisa mas arriba que respondí otra manera para agregar librerías que tengan estos problemas o que no posean el archivo nicnt
