Probably a stupid question guys but what is the location path for the new Kontakt 6 dll files?
Well that's weird indeed. It's not supposed to be like that at all.This is weird ... I have both plugins available in my plugin list and NI Access always asks me to specifically upgrade my Player version despite owning the full version. Also, the songs made with Player still load Player ... So you got me fully confused now ...
I already mentioned the one possible cause for the difference would be a different multicore setting in Kontakt. Did you confirm they're identical or different between v5.8.1 and v6?Dear ED (EvilDragon)
i know you dont believe me, but its a fact that patches from TIME Macro are 20-40% less CPU on the Kontakt 6 player than on kontakt 5.8.1 full.
I dont know why that is (only you should know)...
As mentioned above, full version and player version are exactly the same code. Just the license is different.hopefully that will be on kontakt 6 full also.
I fear that Kontakt 6 does not auto move the presets folders over for you. You may need to go to the Mac Documents / Native Instruments / Kontakt 5 folder and move those presets folders manually to the Kontakt 6 folder (I am assuming it will be called Kontakt 6?) Please let us know if this resolves the issue.I notice Sample Logic Expeditions and Arpology Cinematic seem to be Kontakt 6 casualties (i.e. they don’t work in Kontakt 6). Anybody found any others?
just did stress testing with a TM patch ( Strings very slow trem) and put slider of timestretch to the right.I already mentioned the one possible cause for the difference would be a different multicore setting in Kontakt. Did you confirm they're identical or different between v5.8.1 and v6?
I don't have any OT libraries so I can't really test that, but stuff that I do have (Spitfire, NI, OTS, Vir2, whatever else, I have a ton), has exactly the same CPU usage between v5.8.1 and v6.
As mentioned above, full version and player version are exactly the same code. Just the license is different.
I'm curious, how many notes were you playing at once?just did stress testing with a TM patch ( Strings very slow trem) and put slider of timestretch to the right.
not playable in kontakt 5 due to "overheating" and clips and crackles all over.
kontakt is just fine with appr. 75% CPU
i think i did 2 notes if i remember corectly.I'm curious, how many notes were you playing at once?
I just tried the same (Kontakt 5.8.1) and hit 75% CPU with 5-6 notes simultaneously.

It Works!Yes we Just installed our copy of Kontakt 6 and ED is correct the new presets folder location is not Kontakt 6 but rather "kontakt" as the application is now called Kontakt.
To use our non-Kontakt player products in Kontakt 6 you will need to copy the related presets folders from
users/documents/Native Instruments/Kontakt 5
and paste them into
Interesting. I'm no tech guru and haven't kept up with what's what in the past few years, but it appears you've got far more muscle in your machine than I have in mine. So why do I seem to be doing better?i think i did 2 notes if i remember corectly.

That would explain why I could not find any QuickLoad folders I have made either. Have to go to %AppData%,
What I like most about Discovery: Middle East are the percussion instruments. A tremendous amount of articulations, rolls, fills, and patterns, the mostI've ever seen on any Middle Eastern percussion instrument. And a lot of instruments--4 darbukas, a Daf, a Daire, a Davul, 4 frame drums, Kudu, Tombak, and 2 Riqs. Very expressive, you can change the fill speed with the modwheel and the roll velocity with Pitch Bend and Aftertouch. This is the library that has sold me more than any other on my ROLI, as it responds to very subtle changes in pressure.Thank you very much, TtF, that's extremely helpful, especially with all of the hyperlinking . . .
. . . man, NI's demos do nothing to really sell me on anything other than K6 (which is an inevitability) and Thrill (now I understand all the positive chatter about it... although it reminds me that I haven't yet squeezed out all of Morphestra 2's possibilities).
As for the rest . . . I'd like to be excited about Session Strings Pro 2, but so many of the patches in the video walkthrough sound so synthy, and I can't tell whether it's the patches themselves, or just misapplication of the built-in reverb/EQ/compression/effects, which I wouldn't use.
Ditto Discovery Series: Middle East . . . does its Saz always sound harpsichord-y, or is that they gussied it up poorly for the video? The Ney sounds like it came off of one of my old EIIIx disks. I really like that it lets you play the string instruments in proper scales and tunings (and I'd be pretty intrigued if I could use DS:ME's scale/tuning selction to constrain the scale/tuning of a different VI that I've loaded onto another DAW track), but I can't tell from the one walkthrough video how much it gives me that Ra/Silk doesn't already cover.
The two guitar libraries have some neat features, but I'm not sold on the sound of the guitars themselves... again, I wonder how much of that is due to the way they were amp'd/reverb'd/EQ'd/compress'd/effected/whatever'd for the videos.
