Using Kontakt Quick-Load to Manage Unsupported Sample Libraries
This helpful video tutorial shares how to use the Kontakt Quick-Load feature to make it easier to manage and use your unsupported sample libraries!
If you are new to Kontakt, or just starting to grow your sample library collection, you may be a little confused about why some libraries can be imported directly into Kontakt and kept in the left-hand sidebar browser and others cannot. This is simply because some libraries that are released by 3rd part companies (not Native Instruments) are licensed to allow for this additional support. All other libraries cannot be imported (without a hack). This is not a bad thing, and it does not mean that you cannot play these sounds inside of Kontakt. In fact, you can load just about any sound you can think of into Kontakt and use it any number of ways, just not ‘import’ them into the browser. That’s the only difference. This is were the Kontakt Quick-Load feature comes into play.
This should explain why you may have received an error message when trying to import a new library into Kontakt. But there is a small work-around, of sorts, if you want to take just a moment when you load up an unsupported library (which is most, BTW). The Kontakt Quick-Load feature was created for this very reason! You may eventually have hundreds of sample libraries, and managing them would be a bit cumbersome without the ability to do so directly from within Kontakt. This is what the Kontakt Quick-Load feature does, it allows you to create and manage file directories from Kontakt. You can also use this to quickly save and locate individual presets from supported libraries, as well. It is entirely up to you how you decide to use this feature, but as you can see in this video, using it to manage your unsupported libraries is easy, intuitive and incredibly helpful!
