I was asked to re mix an old session from 2017 in Logic Pro x.... about 80% of the piece was using Kontakt 5 and various orchestral libraries. Six years later I have upgraded to Kontakt 7. I was assuming kontakt 7 would just open the patch that is still on my hard drives but I guess not. Any ideas on how to move forward? I'm in Mac OS 12 Monterrey now. Will kontakt 5 even work on the new Macs?

    What about trying Kontakt 6? Or Kontakt 6 and after that Kontakt 7. Maybe that transition works only step by step....

    I doubt Kontakt 5 would run on Aple Silicon Macs even under Rosetta. But I may be wrong. I am not Mac user.

    @Michael Terry What kind of Mac do you have? Intel? M1? Kontakt 5 is not officially supported on MacOS 12 but it could work. You could then open your old projects with Kontakt 5, create Kontakt 7 tracks and open the same instruments/libraries (for future proofing).

    Unfortunately at the moment, Logic will not load automatically older versions of Kontakt in the new one. this is something that will be eventually possible but not in the near future.
