    I own Komplete and only run legit Massive, Absynth, FM8 and Battery. I have Maschine Jam but use k'd Maschine. Just installing au's and vst's won't achieve anything. You need the cracked standalone to run first.

    altenative - NI Kontakt 5.7.0 Portable with Library Manager
    You dont need register or crack any libraries. Everything works fine.

    Hey, guys! I have a question for those of you who have both legit and non-legit Kontakt. Do the .nki instruments created with the cracked version open fine in the Legit, or do they run as Demo?

    Thanks! Could I ask you to clarify, since you said "library", does this also apply to patches that are opened through the file browser?

    Say, I create an instrument from scratch with c/d Kontakt, and save it as non-protected .nki patch plus samples. If I share this instrument, would legit Kontakt owners be able to open it in File Browser (not Add Library)? Again, I'm not talking about encrypted libraries, just plain nki's.

    Very useful thread - thanks for all the info:

    I still have some issues with my specific setup though which is Mac X Yosemite / Logic 9 / latest legit version of Kontakt (mostly for my Spitfire libraries).

    However Im looking to run Kontakt 5.0.1.5 (cracked) side by side in Logic, so that I can run some old libraries which wont work with the most up to date version that the latest Spitfire libraries need.
    Will this version work side by side via the method previously described for simultaneous installations on Mac? I notice people keep saying it should be 5.3 or higher....??

    Any help massively appreciated!!

    Hi Introninja. I wonder if you can help me out. This post really helped me out and I now have two Kontakt 5s running side by side, one for legit Ultimate 11 and an older one for libraries I used before. Tonight I made two new ncint files and unfortunately I didn't realise that the numbers could clash. The upshot is that I've lost two legit NI libraries and can't retrieve them.
    I changed the numbers and reset everything as it was but when I try to load the NI ones they load as the cracks even though the names and numbers are as they should be. It's probably a registry deal. I tried to restore but for some reason it wouldn't go back. I'm on W10. If I spent as much time recording as I do obsessing this stuff, I'd have a much easier life!
    Reading your input here, you're definitely the man to help me.
    Also, I don't know how to find .xml files in Service Centre, can you explain that please?

    Thanks in advance pal.

    So my music sounds cracked?
    Analog vs digital debates must be over.
    Let's begin Cracked Digital vs Legit Digital vs Freware Digital vs Hardware Digital vs Cheap Analog vs Expensive Analog vs Natural Acoustics.
    Stolen sausage from shop is shittier, than bought one. But meat/ham is better! Even stolen! But homemade barbeque is wow..

  15. Lots of times certain teams transform an instrument or virtual effect which runs smoother than the unadulterated version. Buy the software and run the team version for the best user experience.

    First of all, thanks for the post, it's really explicit and well done. I'm just writting here for one precision, cause i'm kinda newbie into the kontakt world.

    So i've acquired a portable version in your webside and i decided to take some different libraries. I add libraries in kontakt normally, but for some of them i do "add encoded library" with the famous nicnt file (projectsam for example..) but suddenly, the fear came, can i really add those encoded libraries or is it dangerous (compared to self made libraries ?)

    It was juste that precision cause i don't really know this world, and it seems to bes BIG !

    Thanks in advance and have fun composers ;)
