1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Hello..I've just installed Kontakt player 5 ( I'm on an old OS ) but I can't seem to find any NI Kontakt factory content or instruments to use...where are they all hiding ? I've tried a few third party instruemnts but they're just available in demo mode.
    Thanks for all help and sorry if I've overlooked somewhere obvious

    With Kontakt Player you don't have access to the full factory library, you can download the free Kontakt Factory Selection though.

    Third party instruments that you tried and are in demo mode are not Kontakt Player encoded libraries, they would require the full version of Kontakt to work without timing out.

    It should be listed in Native Access and ready to download from there.

    It's not listed...just a prompt to install Kontakt 6. Is there another location I can find it ?

    Just checked.....it needs a higher OS than I've got so I guess not and that would sync with needing verision 6....So really no way to load any instruments into Kontakt player 5 at all then ?

    You can of course load Kontakt Player libraries that support Kontakt Player 5... but you have to own them first. :)

    Google/bing free Kontakt instruments and you will find a lot of them. Find and DL those that will load in the Kontakt Player 5. There are also a lot of presets available for purchase that will work in player 5 also.

    There's actually not an awful lot of free Kontakt Player libraries out there...
