Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need any additional software to use Simple Samples Audio instruments?

All of my libraries require the full version of Kontakt 5 or above. Refer to each instrument page to see which sub-version is required (ex. Kontakt 5.8.1, Kontakt 6.4.2, etc.); this is the minimum version required to open the specific .NKI instrument patches. Kontakt can run as either a standalone application or as a plugin in a VST/AU compatible host (such as Cubase, Logic Pro, or Digital Performer).

Can I use your sample libraries in the free Kontakt Player?

Unfortunately not. All of my libraries require the full version of Kontakt 5 or above. NKS licenses are expensive and I'm not interested in that investment at this time. Perhaps later as this business grows!

Will your libraries show up in the "Libraries" tab on the sidebar in Kontakt? Can I add the instrument to Native Access?

All of my libraries are delivered as .NKI files ("open format"), which can only be opened through the File menu within Kontakt. Open format files cannot be loaded in the "Libraries" tab, however they can be dragged to the "Quick Load" panel for easy access. Native Access is not used to activate these instruments. 

Why does Kontakt give the error message "Your version of Kontakt is too old to load this file. Please update to the latest version."?

You are trying to load a library in a previous version of Kontakt. All of my libraries require the full version of Kontakt 5 or above. Refer to each instrument page to see which sub-version is required (ex. Kontakt 5.8.1, Kontakt 6.4.2, etc.); this is the minimum version required to open the specific .NKI instrument patches. Kontakt can run as either a standalone application or as a plugin in a VST/AU compatible host (such as Cubase, Logic Pro, or Digital Performer).

Why does the instrument say ***DEMO*** when I load?

You are likely using the free Kontakt Player with a library that requires the full version of Kontakt 5 or above.

All of my libraries are digital downloads only. Product box art is for illustration purposes only.
