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 browsing interface, updated factory library,
new creative effects and internal sound enhancements, the next evolution is almost here.

Changelog Version 7.8.0 :

Released 2024-01-29.
New effects, new KSP callback, Replika latency fix.
ADDED new effects: EP Preamps, Fuzz, Big Fuzz, Stereo Tune.
ADDED option for double-click preset loading behavior (“Loading → Files, Libraries, Quick-Load: Double-clicking a file replaces the currently selected instrument slot”).
ADDED a new KSP callback type to define the behavior of all UI controls by their ID in a single callback, on ui_controls.
ADDED API command link_resource_container()command.

IMPROVED loading speed when switching between snapshots of an actively loaded tool when launched from the Library Browser.
IMPROVED The font size in the Tool Navigator has been increased.
IMPROVED The tool focus indicator (orange bar to the left of the tool title) is now only visible in Rack View.
IMPROVED Use of resizer from Library Browser throughout Kontakt.
IMPROVED Kontakt now supports “Open with…” OS behavior with samples, creating an instrument overlaid with the specified sample.
IMPROVED KSP $EVENT_PAR_SOURCE now works in multiscripts.
IMPROVED API When creating a resource container, you no longer need to enter the .nkr extension…
API IMPROVED When dragging a Lua script onto the Kontakt rack, it will now appear in the list of recently used scripts.
IMPROVED API If an error occurs while creating a resource container, the dialog will no longer be created, instead the information will be written to the terminal.

FIXED Failure to play a note after changing the output configuration with a preset already loaded.
FIXED Delay Replika in Diffusion mode did not output sound if the note duration was less than the delay time.
FIXED Visual glitches when resizing Kontakt windows on multiple displays.
FIXED Replika delay incorrectly called delay values when loading snapshots switching to Tape, Analogue and Vintage styles.
FIXED CPU overload during tempo surges when Replika delay is bypassed.
API FIXED When creating a resource container, scripts from the Resources/scripts folder were not immediately available to the builder for linking.
FIXED API When linking a script using the set_instrument_script_linked_filename() function, the script was not applied.

A SIMILAR ISSUE When Kontakt is launched from VS Code, logging of incoming KSP/API messages does not work (works when Kontakt is launched from Sublime Text).
REMOVED several entries in Options, which are now permanently enabled:
“Interface → Show display and switching of keys on the virtual keyboard.”
“Interface → Auto-update file browser.”
“Process → File Browser: Double-clicking an audio file loads the tool.”


How to install, questions, etc…
1) Run the Kontakt 7 7.8.0 Setup program on your computer.
2) Disable your antivirus and extract K7 Next Patcher.7z, then run Kontakt 7 Next Patcher as administrator.
(If you unchecked AAX or VST3 during installation, the patcher will tell you that it cannot find the file, just click the NO button).
Click the Patch button and wait until the green text DONE appears
in the lower left corner.

Can I install the latest version of Kontakt 7 over the previous version of Kontakt 7 (bobdule)?
YES! You can, just make sure you use the same location (default)..
Can Kontakt 6 or Kontakt 7 work side by side?
Yes! You can install both versions without any conflicts.

Kontakt 7 Factory Library is mentioned in the description, where is it located?
From both links below you can download Factory library + updated patch for the library.
Kontakt Factory Library 2 + Update to version 1.1.2
