Using the Library Tab: If your library is compatible with the Kontakt Library tab, you can easily add it through the Native Access application and then load it directly from the Libraries tab within Kontakt.
Using the Files Browser: Navigate through your computer’s file system within Kontakt to find and load individual Kontakt patches (.nki files). This method works for both libraries that are formatted for the Libraries tab and those that are not.
Using the Quick Load Catalog: You can add your most commonly used instruments, multis, and banks to Kontakt’s Quick Load catalog for faster access. Right-click in the Kontakt window to access and manage your Quick Load settings.
Dragging and Dropping: You can drag .nki files from your file explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac) directly into Kontakt’s interface to load them.
If Kontakt is having difficulty locating the files, executing a “Batch Resave” is necessary. This process significantly improves loading speeds and ensures everything is correctly installed.
To initiate a Batch Resave, open an empty Kontakt instance, go to File > Batch Resave, and confirm the action in the dialog that appears. Next, direct Kontakt to the folder where your collection is stored to begin the resaving of patches.
Should a “Missing Samples” dialog emerge, simply redirect Kontakt to the collection folder once more.
Once you have successfully unzipped the collection, there’s no need to keep the compressed files within the collection folder. We advise saving them in a safe place for any future reinstallations. It’s important to note that we cannot assure the indefinite availability of re-downloads for purchased collections.
