How do I know if I have the ‘Full’ version of Kontakt?

All our libraries require the full version of Kontakt 5 or above. If you are using the free Kontakt Player, the libraries will display a ‘DEMO’ message, and will time out after 10 minutes. Kontakt can be bought from Native Instruments here, or as part of Komplete here.

 

To determine if you have the ‘Full’ version of the Kontakt application installed, please follow the steps below. 

 

  1. Open up the Kontakt application. This can be done either inside your DAW or by navigating to the application via your desktop.
  2. Once open, you will see in the top left-hand corner that your application is either titled “Kontakt” or “Kontakt Player”. The latter title indicates that you are running the Free Kontakt Player and NOT the Full Version of Kontakt. See below image. 
  3. For further clarification, click the application’s title to open up a box displaying further details about the application. Again, in order to use our libraries, your “License Type:” needs to indicate that you have the “Full” version of Kontakt. See below images and highlighted areas.
