    Kontakt 6.2.0 - 2019-11-14
    • ADDED There are now three new state of the art modulation effects (Choral, Flair & Phasis)
    • ADDED KSP: There is a new type of zone that can be created and is fully accessible from KSP, allowing for dynamic mapping of samples, including end-user ones (set_num_user_zones(), set_sample(), set_zone_par(), set_loop_par() & is_zone_empty())
    • ADDED KSP: All zone parameters can now be read from KSP (get_sample(), get_zone_par() & get_loop_par()); available for both user zones & standard ones
    • ADDED KSP: New MIR functions to detect pitch, RMS, peak level and loudness of any zone (user or standard)
    • ADDED KSP: New MIR functions to classify samples based on their audio characteristics (e.g., Kick, Snare, Choir, Synth, etc)
    • ADDED KSP: New UI widget (ui_mouse_area), this first iteration of which allows dropping files from the system to an instrument’s UI
    • ADDED KSP: New command to make handling asynchronous operations more convenient (wait_async())
    • IMPROVED An instrument can now be loaded with missing resources (samples, NKRs, etc) without the references being completely discarded, i.e., one can load an instrument, ignore missing samples, save it and reload it without losing data
    • ADDED A new entry in the Mapping Editor’s Edit menu allows for manually removing all zones with missing samples
    • IMPROVED KSP: purge_group() now returns an async ID, allowing for reliable tracking of the operations completion
    • IMPROVED There were some performance issues with instruments with many automation assignments when running in Logic
    • IMPROVED The scrolling and animation speed in the Libraries tab has been adjusted
    • FIXED There are no more conflicts between MIDI and Host automation in Logic
    • FIXED Kontakt would often crash when trying to run a Batch Resave operation
    • FIXED There were some audible clicks in certain cases involving looping samples played back with Time Machine Pro
    • FIXED Kontakt would crash when saving an NKI after assigning user automation to any of the recently added reverb and delay effects
    • FIXED KSP: Switches and menus would get stuck in their hover states under certain circumstances
    • FIXED KSP: In certain cases, when a control was within a panel, its position would be 1 pixel off of what was expected
    • FIXED Kontakt now works on Mac OS Catalina

    Creator Tools 1.2.0 - 2019-11-14
    • ADDED File Browser: Direct access to the file system, complementing the new Project Manager
    • IMPROVED New layout, allowing for more than one tool to be visible at once
    • IMPROVED All factory content (scripts, instruments, performance views, etc) are now easy to copy to a user location for direct editing; just use the new Help menu entry.
    • FIXED Instrument Editor: Pulling data from big NKIs (>90k zones) would be unreliable
    • ADDED GUI Designer: A new widget type is added: MouseArea
    • ADDED Instrument Editor: MIR type tagging can now be performed with Lua
    • ADDED Instrument Editor: Zone and group pan settings can now be set and retrieved with Lua
    • ADDED Tutorials: Populate Zones From Filesystem (Instrument Editor Lua Scripting)
    • ADDED Instrument Editor: New user zones field displays true when a zone is a user zone or false otherwise
    • ADDED Tutorials: MIR Type Tagging (Instrument Editor Lua Scripting)
    • IMPROVED UniqueID property has been removed, zone ID's are now handled automatically
    • FIXED Adding a UI element and then clicking undo would collapse the element tree

    Nice
    This one is funny (in both meanings) because it still finishes the job almost always.

    I was under the impression that with kontakt 6 , you were unable to load certain third party libraries and thus was using a certain version of kontakt 5. Am i an idiot or is there any truth to this?

    @CharlieCrizzle There is truth to this. I have Kontakt 5.6.6, which I renamed the app itself to K5_Add_Lib. Using this to add libraries and opening Kontakt 6 the added libraries appear. K6 has no 'Add Library' feature. You would have to use Native Access.

    When following this process, the K5 app WILL crash. Do not be disheartened. It will still work in K6.

    Haha, who's always coming up with these stupid "creator tools", as there would be an extra product.
    The tools are functions that are integrated into kontakt and when you get the full version, you automatically have
    the ability to create libraries with the included tools.

    @phloopy Cobain. Lennon. Bowie. Bach.
    And Jesus. Though he keeps telling me that's not His real name.

    @Von_Steyr You should see what she does with her foot.
    I've been away and it's truly good to see you back. I missed you, brother. No lie.

    There's truth to it, it's weird though. On my Macbook I needed Kontakt 5 in order to add libraries. On my PC desktop however I'm able to add Libraries directly using a 6.1.1 version of Kontakt.

    to get the Creator Tool, add this regedit key.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Native Instruments]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Native Instruments\Creator Tools]
    "InstallDir"=""


    simply repair in the installed products tab of native access.
    it is an extra product totally free.
