Just bought Ethera Gold, but I can not select any preset and for most instruments there is no sound. Any idea?

Oh I've got it! There is another step in installation process: You have to execute INSTALLER SNAPSHOT WINDOWS.bat to copy files to user folder. IMHO it should be told a litle bit clearer.

Hi, and welcome....

I suggest reading the Manual, for this purpose :)

Thanks Stefano, I just watched the instruction video on EG2.5 page and read the email until I got stucked. But my post may help others as well in the future if they search in internet.

Now I am looking forward to use EG.

I had questions but eventually found out where to put those Snapshot files (xxxxx.nksn) My initial experience was similar to Andras's, "no Snapshots". Some other Kontakt based libraries I own keep their Snapshot files inside the main Kontakt instruments and samples folder, so the Ethera location was new to me. But I came to think about this quick way to find out. I fired up my DAW with Kontakt and created a dummy Snapshot with a unique name, closed down the DAW, and searched in Windows 7 for the file name. This revealed the correct location to move those files into:

"(C:)/Users/your_name/My Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Kontakt".

Here's a tip for making the instructions easier:
While the manual hints at moving the files into the system folder, the actual Snapshots folder inside the main Kontakt samples and instruments folder (in my case located on an external SSD) is named "_Snapshots INSTALL THE CONTENT OF THIS FOLDER INTO THE KONTAKT USER FOLDER". You see; partly conflicting information and no clear hint about where this folder is to be found.

Once again, thanks a lot for these highly useful and inspiring instruments! <3

Hi,

Thanks,

By The Way, there is an Installer on Mac and Windows for Ethera Gold 2.5.
So I think is absolutely easy. I created also a lot of videos.

Also, manual Installation is quite simple:

Take the CONTENT of the folder "_Snapshots INSTALL THE CONTENT OF THIS FOLDER INTO THE KONTAKT USER FOLDER" and copy into SystemDisk/Users/your_name/My Documents/Native Instruments/User Content/Kontakt".

Anyway, I suggest using the INSTALLER, I created the installer for an easy Snapshot Installation.

The only problem is on Windows if you are using Microsoft ONE DRIVE,
But I created also an Installer for the users that are using One Drive. Anyway, I suggest disabling One Drive is absolutely shit for an AUDIO PC.

Thank You

THat's great with the installer and I certainly used it. But it doesn't move the snapshot files into place for you. This is the info I missed. Like Andreas also did. I have not yet installed on my Windows 10 machine or the Mac, so I can't share any user experience on that.

Snapshot Presets MUST not be moved, but copied.

The installer works perfectly for both Mac and Windows. The only problem is with Windows if you are using Microsoft One Drive as I said. But I have provided a special installer in the case.

Going off-topic, but really need couple directions for properly setting up latest ETHERA Gold 2.5 & Intimate Vocals using Kontakt 6, UNIFY .... on Win10 Pro / Reaper. Have had every Ethera working so far, but now unsure with UNIFY. ALSO ___ have new Unify Ethera Gold 2.5 rar and a bit confused by pdf instructions. Where does this 'Patches' folder go? Not clear if it goes where instruction state, or entire Ethera Gold 2.5 folder goes there ??

Happy to go to Zero-G Site if you prefer .....

Intimate Volcas? No.. with Unify no.
Who talked about Intimate Vocals? who then has 1 nki and not snapshot presets. :)

Unify is useful for the Hybrid Sounds and Vocal Prases. Not for True Legato of course.


About Ehtera Gold 2.5 and Unify
It seems very clear if you know Unify.

download this guru file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jlaa5r60ocqsjna/EtheraGold.guru?dl=0

and follow the PFDs here

IF the GURU file is un-compressed when you download it of course, is not necessary unzip it.

Thank-you for patience and assistance. Kontakt (6.4.2) was not scanning into UNIFY properly. Now resolved and all working well with ETHERA GOLD CORE SYNTH 2.0.nki

Exactly.

On MAC is important to check if UNIFY has the VST version of Kontakt and not only the Audio Unit.

( VST and not VST2 or VST3) the correct path is


HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST


Under windows, there is no problem because there is only Kontakt vst 2.4

Keep in mind the UNIFY Ethera Gold 2.5 library has ALL the presets from Core Synth, Action Synth; Vocal Synth and the Vocal Phrases.

And That's Amazing. You can search everything with the browser...create layers..just amazing.

Just for the True Legatos, you have to load Kontakt normally in a track.

I've converted also the Cyber World Exp Pack. ( maybe I will do a Live tomorrow)

And I will do also Ethera Soundscapes and Ethera EVI.

So UNIFY will be a nice and fantastic way to use Ethera Series ( in particular for the Hybrid Sounds and the Vocal Phrases ), with other Virtual Instruments and Libraries.

Hi,

What OS are you using?

How you load the snapshot preset?

Do you load the presets from the snapshot preset menu?

mm is not so clear..

When You Have content missing?

Can you load Ethera Gold Core synth for example?

If you Have content missing, you have a bad installation with the RAR or you are loading the Snapshot Presets in a wrong way, by clicking directly on the file in the snapshot folder, that is wrong.

And Please,

Check if your Ethera Gold 2.5 folder is about 33Gb if you have a different size, you did a wrong installation from the RAR.

And remember:
The Snapshot Presets must be loaded from the Snapshot Preset Menu and not from the folder or from the File Tab.
