Installing and Activating Kontakt 7.5.1+ Collections

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Because of NI policy changes, all new and updated collections require Kontakt Player (or Full) 5.7.1 or higher and can not be used with any previous version.
This is due to Native Instruments only encoding new libraries in the newest version of Kontakt.

General Activation Notes

After downloading and extracting the collection, please note the following about the activation process:

1.It is NOT possible to add Kontakt 5.7.1 Collections to Kontakt in any version prior to 5.7.1. Doing so will very likely make Kontakt crash. This is an issue within Kontakt and is not related to Orchestral Tools in any way

2.You will need to activate these collections within Native Access following the instructions in the relevant section Add Library (Native Access) in the Installation Guide. You can not use the old Service Center. Please read this section carefully, as the process differs from previous versions of Kontakt

Read the Installation Guide!

The Installation Guide describes the whole process. Please read it!

If you encounter any issues activating, especially if you have (unsuccessfully) tried to add the collectiont to Kontakt in an earlier version of Kontakt, please follow the steps below in order:
