INSTALLATION: USB EDITION
Note: The installation steps in this chapter only apply to the boxed USB edition of SYMPHOBIA 2.
Step 1: USE YOUR CHALLENGE CODE
If you purchased SYMPHOBIA 2 directly from ProjectSAM, you can skip to step 2.
If you did not purchase SYMPHOBIA 2 directly from ProjectSAM, use your challenge code at www.projectsam.com/My-Account to unlock your download and retrieve the product serial number you need to activate this library.
Step 2: COPY LIBRARY FROM USB STICK
Insert the SYMPHOBIA 2 USB stick. Copy (drag-drop) the entire folder named 'SYMPHOBIA 2 Library' to a local drive on your computer. You can place the folder in any subfolder and on any internal or external drive that you wish.
Step 3: INSTALL KONTAKT PLAYER
SYMPHOBIA 2 runs as a library inside Native Instruments Kontakt Player. If you are new to Kontakt, you need to install Kontakt Player. On the USB stick you will find Mac and Windows versions in the ‘Kontakt Player’ folder. Start the correct installer and follow the on-screen instructions. Version note: a newer version of Kontakt Player might be available than the one found on the USB stick. To make sure you have the latest version of Kontakt Player, compatible with the latest operating systems, go to www.projectsam.com/My-Account. If you already have Kontakt or Kontakt Player installed, you can skip this step.
Step 4: ADD LIBRARY TO KONTAKT
Add SYMPHOBIA 2 to Kontakt Player using the ‘Add Library’ button in the ‘Libraries’ panel near the top-left corner. Kontakt will ask you to browse to the library’s folder, which is named ‘SYMPHOBIA 2 Library’. Browse to this folder, select it, and confirm. Note that you do not have to select an individual file, selecting the folder is sufficient. After confirming, Kontakt may ask you for your administrator credentials.
Step 5: ACTIVATE
Click the ‘Activate’ button in Kontakt and activate SYMPHOBIA 2 using your product serial number. This number can be found in your ProjectSAM account at www.projectsam.com/My-Account and in your order confirmation e-mail.
Note: activation inside Kontakt is done using your Native Instruments log in, not yourProjectSAM log in.
