Xpand!2 NKS Browser for Komplete Kontrol \ Maschine

Xpand2 SplashImage800

Version 2.1.1 has just been released (11 December 2017) and contains a number of enhancements 
The Xpand!2 NKS Library is a preset pack for browsing Air Music Xpand!2 presets from the Komplete Kontrol / Maschine software and hardware. This package contains over 2400 factory presets that will add full preset browing for Xpand!2 from the keyboard!

All presets have been converted to NKS files which contains the Xpand!2 preset information, tagging information and mapped controls. Additionally, a database file and plug-in artwork is also included to create entries in your User Library. The sound preview feature included with v2.1 allows you to hear a preview of the preset before you load the instrument.

New in v2.1.1

Improved Tagging
Additional tagging has been done to many presets across all libraries as well as a more cleaning up of tags. To make best use of
this be sure to update all your libraries to the latest. Just download and copy over the existing files.

New Sound Previews
New preview files have been generated for all instruments. Bass notes for synth/acoustic bass are now an E1 note which sounds
more natural. Drum kit presets now play 4 different hits to showcase a few kit sounds. Acoustic guitars now produce a “strum”
chord instead of a single C note. Some sounds were fixed but others (especially small drum kits) may not play a sound.

New Image Display for loaded Plug-ins (Maschine Studio/MK3/Komplete MK2)
When browsing for a sound and loading a preset the display screens would show a black screen with a text title of the plugging
instead of the plugging splash logo. This has been addressed and now adds an extra few folders to cater for this. A splash image
is now displayed along with the colour of the plug-in header.

Features Added in v2.1

Xpand KK Banks

Filter by Instrument Bank
Now Available is a much needed feature that is available in the Factory library... The ability to filter an instrument by preset BANKS using a second and third filter below the plugin header.This now replaces the [Library] tag place holder that was in previous library’s and offers the ability to finally restrict a search to a single library or sub library.


Cleaner Tagging
Tags have been better condensed across multiple instruments and library’s. There were many duplicate tag locations in different areas and this has been heavily reduced which will be most noticeable in 3rd party library’s for Omnisphere. Where possible some extra time has been spent tagging additional information into the browser. This will be an ongoing process

Updated Plugin Artwork
Artwork for all NKS library plugins has been updated to fit in better with the style of the factory library. If you have the previous version 1 NKS library you will need to overwrite the IMAGES included with this release. 

Sound Previews
This update now includes sound previews for the preset browser. Every preset will play a small sound sample of the preset sound while browsing. This now adds some extra size to the download and the installation.

Frequently Asked Questions


This NKS library is created with no affiliation to Native Instruments or the VST vendor. I am not paid, or even supported by Native Instruments or the vendors. Downloading and usage of this library is at the users own risk. Payments are non refundable. There is no support or guarantee offered that these will suit your own application which is why a free version is offered to test with. If you are satisfied with the free version then the paid version offers the same features and includes all factory presets. There is no guarantee that future versions of the Komplete/Maschine software will support these preset files or the current features.

Users are not authorised to share or distribute the files with anyone else without the consent of Freelance SoundLabs. A lot of work goes into managing this project, hosting the files and writing documentation and I am also an active forum member helping out users. Please do the right thing; the cost is only a few beers to help me out.
