Native Instruments Kontakt 5.6 FAQ

How to download Kontakt 5.6 update?

Users are still able to use the Service Centre to download latest updates for Kontakt, however moving forward all Native Instruments products (including Maschine) will be supported within the Native Access application. Some legacy 3rd party Kontakt Libraries may be missing within Native Access, the NI Service Centre would still be required for checking updates on such titles. All future products will be managed by Native Access exclusively.

See Native Access FAQ for more details

Is Logic 9 still supported with Kontakt 5.6?

Kontakt 5.6 will work with Logic 9, but you must be running Logic 9 in 64-bit mode.

To open Logic 9 in 64-bit mode, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure Logic Pro isn't running.
  2. Go to the Logic Pro app in the Applications folder and choose Get Info from the File menu or use the Command+i (⌘i) key command.
  3. Disable the "Open in 32-bit mode" checkbox.

Kontakt is now missing?

Kontakt 5.6 is only available in 64-bit on Mac, please ensure you are not running a 32-bit host. If you are using a 32-bit host/DAW, Kontakt will no longer be displayed. See steps above for details on enabling 64-bit mode.
