Installation Guide - Setting Up a Third Party KONTAKT Library

          Setting Up a Third Party KONTAKT Library                  

     

Note: If you wish to set up a KONTAKT Library provided by Native Instruments instead, read this article.

KONTAKT allows you to add third-party Powered By KONTAKT Libraries to the Browser. These libraries can also be used with the free KONTAKT Player. Please check the third-party manufacturer's product page to find out if your Library is Powered By KONTAKT.

Note: Third-party KONTAKT Libraries that do not have a serial number cannot be added to KONTAKT's Library Browser. Please use the Quick-Load Catalog to organise these libraries, as explained in this video.
