    Hello,

    I bought a recent library and have a "properly K'ed" Kontakt 6.2.2
    Library is great but Kontakt not so much fits my workflow.

    I would like to extract .wav from this library but it seems to be protected as when I do batch/collect samples I have this message quickly after launching it

    "One or more samples could not be written to disk.
    Your patch has not been saved.

    Possible reasons:

    - the original samples were removed
    - an external drive was disconnected
    - the target drive is full"

    So I guess it means the library is protected? Is there a solution for this?

    Thank you

    What library? If you can load it and play it you should be able to convert it to wav.

    It's written in Kontakt manual see attached pictures so I guess it's not doable hence why I'm wondering about inNKX method

    Not a problem for K'ed Kontakt. That's why they cr*cked it.
    Also, what library....

    Oh you mean sharing a commercial library that I bought?
    Well no sorry, did not realise that was the price to have an insight.

    Thanks anyway.

    To Smoove Grooves, unfortunately don't know the team. Got 6.2.2 on two different places one for mac the other for windows, encountered the same issue on both platforms.

    Even with the error message, I can see some .wav getting exported in the destination folder, but they are corrupted and so can't be opened.

    You would have to ask for help @Introninja , he is an expert on such issues.

    It's a weird problem you've got there. I've never had any problems converting any of the Kontakt sample banks to WAV with any of the Kontakt releases. Currently 6.2.2, but still using 5.8.1 more often, though. 6.2.2 only for a couple of libraries that explicitly need it.

    It's weird that both batch resave, nor saving a patch and converting to WAV wouldn't work. Maybe your Kontakt is not cracked properly. Are you using Native Access and some legit NI plugins? That could possibly be an issue.

    Maybe try uninstalling Kontakt *completely* and installing it following the instructions in the nfo word for word. I recommend e4r's Kontakt 6.2.2 version.

    I just figured you're a mac user since you used the "k'ed" word. So my solution wouldn't work anyway. You could have mentioned that "little" detail. ;) I can't remember the exact folders and files you have to delete, before reinstalling Kontakt. ~libraries/audio and then something. Probably Native Instruments or Kontakt folder, then erase all there. I can't access my mac right now to be able to tell you exactly. I have to remember all the Linux, Windows and macOS shit and that's impossible. LOL I use everything.

    There is a thread about installing Kontakt properly on macOS and cleaning all the crap that could interfere with the installation, but I think that's on the sister site. Look for the latest Kontakt for macOS release.

    Ok thanks. I did mention I was on mac catalina a few posts above ;) but as I sais I tried with a parallel windows 10 and had the same issue. Can use both.

    I had the free legit kontakt player installed before and when I installed cr*cked Kontact it got replaced. I would say maybe it’s coming from that but on windows 10 (parallel so via my mac) it was « clean install » nothing native was installed before soo yea maybe should try with an older version?

    I’m going to check the one you mention, thanks!

    it is only the third attempt to get a solution.

    refuse to share and ask for help is fun.
    keep running... but nobody can check your registration issue.

    the insight is allready done, it is a crappy loop player toy.


    you will remain the only sound guy who cannot export to wav.
