    Problem: looks legit, but the generator doesn't accept letters, but if we have to use official SNPID numbers that are actually letters, because only official SNPID will work, we're stuck...

    Some librairies will now load in 5.6.6 (without the image though), but not recognised in 6.5.2 in Ableton. Is 6.5.2 bringing a new level of security from NI, do I need to downgrade maybe to make it work?

    Thanks but most of the SNPID are missing for most of the librairies posted on sister site, especially the newer ones...

    you can use any 3 digit code not refered in that list to add a third part libray.

    SNPID integration is a commercial license to pay to NI for the developper. they are not all using it.

    Okay good to know thanks. I did that but it's still not loading properly in 5.6.0, even though the XML and NICNT SPID numbers (or letters) are matching and free - I'm still trying to find a fix... I reseted permissions and so on but it doesn't solve anything. For info I of course haven't installed NI Access. Maybe I need to downgrade Kontakt 6.5.2 in the DAW if NI added extra layers of security in the latest 6 version that would prevent from loading non-legit librairies?

    Someone redirected me to Kontacted 5 (Big Sur Update) maybe I'll get more luck - http://abyssmultimedia.com/Kontacted/

    Kontakted has worked great for me with adding libraries as usual with Kontakt 5.6 and them running them under 6.5.2. Fine both on Intel/Catalina and M1 ARM/Big Sur.

    Hi guys, I am attaching a link where you can download the PDF which contains a list of 100 .nicnt files for Kontakt libraries. http://pheecith.com/6v1Q I preferred to separate the links for each file so that you can scroll through and select the link associated with the file.nicnt you are interested in and avoid downloading everything. Maybe someone might be interested. I made some and they work.

    You sir are a legend! This is the only (free) NICNT Generator working properly! Works perfect with all my librairies on Big Sur.

    The reason is because you create perfect NICNT and XML files, with 3 numbers only!

    Other generators fail because they often use more than 3 numbers for SPNID, I don't know why...

    In the next update could you please fix the fact that NICNT/XML are by default given the names of the field "COMPANY NAME" instead of "BANK NAME" (as it should be), because since we have libraries from the same company, I'm sure it will create problems when adding a second one, third one, etc... from the same editor later on. Cheers!

    Edit: my bad, it was actually me who inverted the company and library name :)) all good!

    First of all, thanks for your effort!

    I'm thinking that if you could make the source available (privately or publicly, your choice) I could take a stab at a Windows port.

    I've never had any problems at all with the old format and new Kontakt.
    And I've created .nicnt with most of the alphabet involved! Usually 2 digits and one letter; different orders.
    Not so.
    Has to be called wallpaper.png
    Well, that's obviously wrong! All SNPID are only 3 characters.
