For 20 years, KONTAKT has been the basis of countless movie soundtracks and pop hits,
plus thousands of incredible tools from NI and your favorite NKS developers.
Now, with a new HiDPI viewing interface, updated factory library, new creative effects and internal audio enhancements, the next evolution is almost here.
Changelog v7.6.0 :
Direct connection of KONTROL MK3, NKS2 controller pages created in KSP.
ADDED Kontakt can now be used directly with KONTROL MK3 keyboards.
CHANGED Options → Loading → “Ask for confirmation when loading or replacing modified tools” is now disabled for all users.
CHANGED Options → Handling → The “MIDI channel assignment for loaded patches” option is now set to “Assign to omni” for all users.
CHANGED Options → Interface → both “Suppress drawing” options are now in the Mapping Editor’s Edit → Display options.
CHANGED You can now focus on an empty tool slot even in single view mode.
IMPROVED saving Kontakt GUI state on a per-instance basis, including layout (e.g. keyboard, infobar, sidebar visibility), zoom and full-screen browser settings.
IMPROVED Loading a tool from the fullscreen browser now replaces the focused tool rather than adding it to the rack.
IMPROVED The Quick-Load menu in the top left corner of the tool header now tells the user if Quick-Load is empty.
ADDED 20 new forms for the Wavetable source module.
ADDED factory presets Vibrato/Chorus and Wow/Flutter from Guitar Rig 7.
Fixed Kontakt not respecting the offline rendering flag sent from the host with a VST3 target.
FIXED The S1200 and MP60 sampler modes did not work.
FIXED Entering a value for the Vibrato/Chorus Rate parameter did not work correctly.
ADDED KSP NKS2 parameters and navigation can be defined using KSP commands.
ADDED KSP A new control parameter, $CONTROL_PAR_TYPE, which returns the type of the UI widget owned by a specific UI ID.
ADDED KSP New $CONTROL_PAR_CUSTOM_ID control parameter that allows you to assign a custom value to each UI widget.
ADDED KSP New internal constant $NI_UI_ID which returns the UI ID of the widget that executed the UI callback.
ADDED KSP $EVENT_PAR_MIDI_CHANNEL can now be set for events in instrument scripts.
ADDED KSP engine parameter for Raum Predelay tempo synchronization ($ENGINE_PAR_RAUM_PREDELAY_UNIT).
Fixed KSP Twin Delay Predelay tempo sync, Cross and Width engine parameters were not working correctly.
FIXED KSP The $EVENT_PAR_MOD_VALUE_(EX_)ID recipient now works correctly if there is an active vote attached to the specified event ID.
FIXED KSP Incorrect wording in the script warning for the get_group_idx() command.
How to install :
1) Unpack, mount Kontakt 7.6.0 Patched.iso and install.
2) To add a library, use a separate kontakt button (it is not associated with the Kontakt interface).
If you want to add a Kontakt button to K7, use Kontakt Patcher to unlock full K7 options.
3) Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Service Center and check if the NativeAccess.xml file is there .
(If you don’t have this file or folder, create one and place NativeAccess.xml in the Service Center folder.)
Can I install the latest version of Kontakt 7 on top of a previous version of Kontakt 7 (bobdule) ?
YES! You can, just make sure you use the same location (default).
If the installation is patch, then why do you need a patcher ?
As noted above in point 2) Kontakt 7.6.0 Patcher simply unlocks the full potential of K7 options,
for example, turning the HELP>Launch Native Access menu into a Kontakt Add Button.
Can Kontakt 6 or Kontakt 7 work side by side ?
Yes! You can install both versions without any conflict.
How to make Kontakt 7 look like Kontakt 6 ?!
Just use the menu buttons for a classic display.
Carrying out an experiment without the slightest curiosity raises the most trivial questions.
