May 30, 2019 Mac Library folder – how to get to Library on Mac May 30, 2019 by Asya Karapetyan 0 Comments Despite the fact that Apple keeps the Mac Library folder hidden from users, it’s good to learn how to show the Library folder on Mac. Freebies, freebies everywhere. A huge list of free sample libraries. Free Kontakt instruments, VST and SFZ's all you need to produce your music for free. HALion libraries incorporate many source files, such as presets, samples, macro pages, MIDI modules, scripts, and sub presets. The Library Creator allows you to write VST Sound files that contain all the necessary source files of a library. A library can be created as a single VST Sound file or as a combination of VST Sound files.
One of the most powerful features of Kontakt is its scripting engine. Seeing how various developers utilize this engine to make truly unique libraries is one of my favorite aspects of reviewing virtual instruments. The last year has seen quite a few wonderful offerings from various companies that will enhance your Kontakt instrument library. Here are five of my favorite, in no particular order.
Im having the same problem. I have installed Komplete 7, but the library is missing from Kontakt. Ive found a library named 'Kontakt Elements Selection R2 Library' in the shared folder. Is this the Kontakt 4 library or is that only for Kontakt Elements? I dont want to install Kontakt again and have 2 copies of the library on my system.
1. Exhale by Output
Dubbed a ‘modern vocal engine’, Exhale truly lives up to its name. In fact, exhaling is likely the first thing you’ll be doing in awe of the sounds coming from your monitor speakers. There really hasn’t ever been an instrument like this before. With Exhale, you’ve got access to oodles of vocal samples that have been lovingly recorded, warped in ways you can’t even begin to imagine, and then sliced/looped to perfection. You can play it like an instrument, loop it like a loop library, trigger slices like sampler… it’s all at your fingertips and it’s pretty damned amazing.

2. Gamelan by Sample Logic
Once again entering the ‘record an acoustic instrument then absolutely twist it on its head’ department, Gamelan by Sample Logic is an instrument whose sounds truly shout ‘boutique’. The sounds themselves are crisp and clear, the loops are inventive and catchy, and the interface is just a marvel to behold. Gamelan will fit right in whether you’re looking for traditional Indonesian sounds or modern synthesized loops with an ethnic feel.

3. Signal by Output
Output scores 2 instruments on this list, but only because they’re both incredibly unique and will bring quite a bit of diversity to your Kontakt library. Signal is a ‘pulse engine’ which will give you a seemingly endless supply of synths with motion elements.
One of my favorite aspects of signal is the little ‘hints’ you get from the developer when choosing a sound. Right below the preset window you get a short explanation of the macro controls, or perhaps some guidance on what the original sound was and what types of situations it was intended for. I kind of wish everyone provided that much insight into their preset design!

How to Move a KONTAKT Library Note: If you are on Mac OS X 10.10 (and higher) or Windows 7 (and higher), you can also use the Relocate function in Native Access as explained in this article. This article explains how to move an already installed KONTAKT Library - including the KONTAKT Factory Library - to another location on your computer.

4. Gravity by Heavyocity
Everything Heavyocity seems to put out is just so… BIG. Gravity is no exception to this observation. The pads and atmospheres you can create with Gravity will your room with rich sound and harmonic complexity. One of my favorite aspects of Gravity is the use of sub-patches. Many of the NKI files provided by Heavyocity have ‘alternate versions’ which can be accessed using the snapshot menu at the top of the instrument. There’s a seemingly limitless supply of creativity here.
5. Cinematic Guitars Infinity by Sample Logic
Very few instruments can come as close to ‘film scoring in a box’ as Cinematic Guitars Infinity by Sample Logic. As a complete package with Cinematic Guitars 1-3, Infinity can bind them all together into a huge mega-beast of guitar inspired sounds. The rhythmic loops and lush environments can often make you forget that a guitar is at the heart of most of these presets, and that’s totally OK in my book. It’s a diverse sound library that will allow you to build complex pieces of music with a single virtual instrument in record time.
