New in v2.1

Xpand KK Banks

Filter by Instrument BankNow 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 TaggingTags 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 ArtworkArtwork 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 PreviewsThis 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. 

Free Version

The Free Download Version contains a handful of presets to test how the NKS installation and compatibility will work. You can download and install this for free to test things out before purchasing the full NKS browser pack.

FAQ 

Can these presets be added to the Factory Library?
It may be possible in the future but right now they are accessible only via the User library.

Does this work with S Series MK1/MK2 Keyboards and MK2/3 Maschine?
Yes these NKS presets will work with the latest Maschine/Komplete Kontrol software and hardware  

I'm not hearing any preview sounds.
Check in the Factory library at the bottom of the library that the volume slider for previews is turned up. There is no volume control for the User library in the current versions of the software. Otherwise check that the preset folders contain a .preview folder inside (it may be hidden) 

Some tags or presets are missing?
Tags have been formatted to fit with the NKS standard as much as possible. This requires renaming some tags or consolidating similar tags to improve browsing as much as possible. If you happen to notice anything that needs fixing just let me know and I will get it fixed up. Donors will receive free updates to the preset packs when these are pushed to the site so worth the time to report if it's something major.

I’m having some Installation Issues. 
If you are having issues with installing and using the presets, check out the Forum Thread to ask other users who may have some solutions.

I have sent a payment but haven't received the download? 
You should now receive a download link straight away and also emailed to your PayPal/Website accounts email. 

If you have not received anything or something has gone wrong feel free to contact me and be sure to include your PayPal email address or copy of the transaction and I will fix it up for you.

Can I get other VSTs or preset library’s created as NKS? 
I can only create presets for instruments I own or have a copy of and the list I am working on. I am always on the lookout for new VST instruments at good prices so may do more down the track. If you are able to offer me a legal copy of a VST or can transfer me the library I can have a look if it is possible to make NKS compatible. If you are a plugin vendor it may also be possible to add NKS compatibility for official factory inclusion. Feel free to contact me.

Can I please have the script you use so I can make my own? 
Sorry it’s just not possible. I use a few different technologies some of which cannot be re-distributed and some of which has been very hard to program or obtain. I encourage all users to voice their opinions on the official forums to make NKS tools more easily available to users.

This NKS preset pack is created with no affiliation to Native Instruments. I am not paid, or even supported by Native Instruments. Downloading and usage of this preset pack is at the users own risk. Donations 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

and assess. If you are satisfied with the free version then the donor 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.

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.

Cheers.
