    Freelance SoundLabs has released "NKS Library's" over the last few years for the Komplete Kontrol \ Maschine software and hardware and this thread will now centralise support and release announcements to save maintaining a number of different threads.

    Introduction
    Komplete Kontrol \ Maschine hardware and software offers users a convenient way to browse, load and start tweaking the Komplete selection of VST instruments and a small handful of 3rd party "NKS Ready" instruments. Unfortunately there are many VSTs that will probably never be NKS compatible or will be a long way off.

    Through the use of scripts, patience and time I am working through my personal collection of VST instruments as well as searching out developers and snapping up reasonably priced instruments to process these as NKS ready instruments to allow full preset browsing and tweaking from the hardware.

    Compatibility
    • Komplete Kontrol software v2.1
    • Maschine Software 2.8+
    • Komplete Kontrol S Series MK1/MK2 compatible
    • Komplete Kontrol A Series
    • Komplete Kontrol M Series
    • Maschine Studio, Micro, MK2/MK3 compatible
    • Supports VST instruments only
    • Works on PC / MAC
    • Supports 64 bit installations
    • You must own the actual VST and library's, these are only NKS preset files.

    Issues \ Support
    We have hundreds of users that are happily using these NKS files. If you are having issues getting it working it is normally an easy fix so just post a simple message here and I (or other users) will help get you up and running. If you notice any performance issues let me know and we will try and work through them. Every system is different but based on number of downloads and number of reported issues, there are none that I know of.

    If it does not work for you please check the following

    Windows Users


    Mac Users


    By far the most common issue is the fact the instrument plugin is not installed as a VST or the VST.dll file is not loaded by KK/Maschine (either due to an older version of KK being used or the VST.DLL file is not located in the location the software loads plugins from).

    • Do you have Komplete Kontrol 1.9 or later installed?
    • Do you have Maschine 2.6 or later installed?
    • Can you load the instrument manually in: Menu > Plugins
    PluginMenu.png
    This is the most common problem and not related to the preset pack. You must see a plugin within the plugin menu before a pack will work. If you do not see the plugin check the following:​
      • Is the VST version installed (you may have an AU version installed which is not loaded by KK)
      • Is both KK and the VST 32/64bits (the bit depth of both must match)
      • Is the VST.dll file located in the location KK is looking for plugins (check KK Preferences > Plugins > User)
      • Have you tried a Rescan of the plugins preferences
    upload_2017-3-25_9-13-59.png
    • Have you copied the Preset folder to the correct location? The preset files need to be copied to your KK User folder which you can easily see the path in Preferences > Library > User
    UserLibrary.png
    • Have you opened KK in Standalone mode and done a "Rescan". In the Preferences > Library > User you will see a Rescan button.
    • Are you looking in the USER library section of the KK software? The presets will be accessible from the user browser of the KK software, not the factory browser

    Maschine is pretty much the same method. Check your preferences for the user and plugin library locations.

    FAQ

    Please read through this FAQ section before emailing me with support assistance. In most cases, any issues you have will be because the plugin or Komplete Kontrol are not setup correctly and nothing to do with the files I offer.

    Test using the Free download
    A free version is offered for all plugins so you can download and test how it will work before making a payment for the full library. If you have any issues with artwork or the presets working within komplete or maschine please make sure you get this sorted before donating.

    How do I install these?
    There are install instructions within the zip download for PC / Mac. It simply involves copying the preset files to your "User Library" location and the artwork files to the "Database" location which is explained within the instructions. There is now also a video on our youtube channel and probably posted in this thread too.

    I followed the instructions but it's not working
    You have missed a step somewhere:

    • Did you install the files to the correct path? Did you double check this?
    • Did you make sure you have v1.9 Komplete Kontrol / 2.6 Maschine or later installed?
    • Did you make sure you have the VST version of the plugin installed?
    • Did you make sure the VST is scanned and recognised by Komplete Kontrol software?
    • Did you launch the Komplete Kontrol software in Standalone Mode and allow it to scan?
    • If it did not scan did you confirm the user path in the Preferences and try a manual scan?
    • Is your VST up to date? I always use the latest version and some preset information could change.
    Check the top of the thread for detailed troubleshooting (with pictures) or a moving pictures (video) example of the installation​

    Failing all that you can get in contact with me but try and include some useful information such as your versions of plugins/KK software, Operating System etc. Simply saying "I installed this and followed instructions but nothing is working" is not useful to me.

    Can you change the parameter mappings to how I would like?
    Possibly depending on the plugin. You need to create the mapping yourself then email me a single .nkfs file to use as your mapping template. Please make sure it is exactly how you would like and that it can be easily applied to ALL presets. Some VSTs (like Omnisphere) have different effects with different presets so having effect parameters mapped will not work over all presets. I will check your mappings before processing. A small fee may apply.

    I have additional presets for a VST, can I also browse these too?
    Only factory presets can be included but it may be possible for me to script these for you at an additional cost. Please PM me to find out.

    I have a VST that I would love to browse, could you do this?
    Let me know what the VST is and I will have a look. I can only script instruments I personally own but I have contacted some VST developers asking for assistance to make these compatible with Komplete Kontrol and some are open to sending a NFR copy for doing this so anything is worth asking. Optionally if you are keen to purchase me a copy of the software and it's possible to be scripted I will give you the presets back for free in exchange.

    I have a fully working cracked version of a VST I can send you?
    Please do not even think of it. I do not use any software I do not legally own a license for. I don't need to explain this further.

    Does the sound preview feature work with User presets?
    Yes. The latest 2.1 release of any of my NKS presets include preview files for all presets. If you find any sounds that do not have a preset file or the preset sound is silent, corrupt or doesn't sound right please let me know and I will fix this.

    My Akai MPK249 allows changing the encoder from continuous to inc/dec -- double check your edit window on the Advance to see if it allows that choice. Good to know, though - thanks!

    I will definitely be sending you several more donations! :)

    Requires elok dongle :(

    Ive dodged around ever having to get a dongle as most have moved to the online ilok system. Looks quite impressive but I imagine a pain to setup a mapping template due to the fact its "modular" and appears to have a lot of business under the hood.

    If they ever move it to electronic license i'd add it to my interest list but i'm dodging around license dongles because they are simply a pain and I need another thing in a USB port like I need a kick in the face.

    Hi Jester, no avenger is working without dongle too. Only ILok Licence Manager.

    Well that's good to know. They need to update their website info then because I only use software that does NOT require a dongle these days.

    So I have completed the Korg Legacy Collection and will soon have this available after I check all the library's

    I also received my copy of keyscape this week and apart from having some awesome sounding keyboards I had no idea it also had a massive library of "creative" patches just for Omnisphere.

    So I will be working on both a keyscape library and Omnisphere Creative library as well as the Bob moog library. This will take a while though but very excited to start exploring.

    Information & Download Page

    Now Available: Korg Legacy Collection Preset Browsing Pack.

    This pack contains ALL factory presets plus additional downloadable library banks from Korg, wrapped and mapped in Komplete Kontrol for all 6 VST instruments. The donor version contains 6000 presets:

    - LegacyCell = 321 Presets
    - M1 = 3464 Presets
    - MonoPoly = 839 Presets
    - MS-20 = 257 Presets
    - PolySix = 219 Presets
    - Wavestation = 900 Presets

    This pack is complete with artwork for each instrument, full controller mapping, tagging and database files to nicely update your User Library. Designed for Komplete Kontrol but should also work for Maschine too.

    [​IMG]

    This pack was a real pain to create as it was difficult to script a method to save the presets but I managed to crack a way that now allows the use of these fantastic instruments directly from the KK Keyboard or Maschine controllers.

    Visit the download page for full details.

    Hey @JesterMgee, looks like a fantastic work on the Korg Legacy Collection ! Any plan on adding the MDE-X effects ?
    Anyway I just bought it, I guess we'll be in touch by direct emails. Cheers :)

    Effects aren't supported by KK so cannot do anything there

    That's crazy, NI Kore easily batch imports them all from KLC, third party ones too. Why is this so hard for NI to implement for bog standard fxb format preset banks?

    Users who have the Korg Legacy Collection may notice a few duplicate preset entries. This is because the 3rd party banks sometimes contain multiple pages but the user who created the banks simply copied a factory bank and used only the first page of the bank file so the subsequent pages were automatically ripped and created duplicates of the already existing factory presets.

    I will be culling these duplicate files and updating the download soon but feel free to do this yourself if you like.

    Let me know anything else you find, good or bad.
