    Yes it is possible. What you need is:

    • Go to folder C:\Users\Public\Documents\NI Resources\image
    • Create a new folder with the name of the library. Inside, you have to create some images and a .meta file

    I am sending you a template (just black images with the correct dimension + a .meta file). All you need to do is to replace them with your images and rename the folder and the .meta file to your library name.



    Finally, you need to open the .meta file with a text editor and change the name there as well.

    Yes, just to be sure. What you need is actually depended on your hardware. If your hardware is old, you can skip some.

    • MST_Artwork : appears in the on-screen overlay plug-in list, when not using hardware browsing.
    • MST_logo : shows on the right screen as a background image (on MKII +)
    • MST_plugin : appears in the plug-in panel, and on the left screen switched to plugin view (MKII +).
    • OSO_logo : plugin name in the on-screen overlay, after selecting a plug-in in the filter list.
    • VB_Artwork : appears in the browser view on the left in the plug-in list.
    • VB_logo : plugin name that appears in software browser after selecting the plug-in in the filter list.

    If it’s just for the Kontakt browser you can get away with just MST_Artwork.png.

    I have been leaving out the .meta files recently and it doesn’t seem to make a difference
