System FAQs
System FAQs - Kalimba

Q: Can I use the FREE Kontakt Player for playing libraries in "Kontakt format"?
A: No! All "open Kontakt format" libraries require a full version of "Kontakt" sampler. The FREE Player can play the sounds in demo/test mode only. All libraries on our web site including a Kontakt Player licence mention this in the "system requirements"!

Q: When trying to "Add Library" my Kontakt shows a message "No Library found"
A: Then this is not a encrypted Kontakt library, but an open Kontakt format. You can find additional hints for Kontakt Libraries in that Sounds & Gear Video
