Upgrade Kontakt Player, Port Rack Instruments, Presets, and Settings?
I never really looked for a solution to this and I'm not sure why, but now it's a real impediment to me b/c I went from an Intel Mac to Apple Silicon. I will detail the issue, hopefully someone can help. I can figure out, but there has to be an 'easy way', right?
Here's the question: how can I upgrade to Kontakt 7, load a file with an old Kontakt 5 rack, and have Kontakt 7 load the same rack with the same presets and adjustments? One would hope there'd be a way for it to read the file and use the same settings. Does this exist?
- Load a PTX file that contains Kontakt 5 Player with a full multi-rack. Let's say slot 1 is DrumLab set to 'Raw' and 'Aggressive Break'.
- Kontakt 5 player is out-of-date (or let's say not installed).
- Load Kontakt 7 player and 'automagically' pull the settings from the 'inactive' Kontakt 5 Player.
FWIW, this is detailed and sorta acknowledged but not addressed in this AMA post - https://community.native-instruments.com/discussion/comment/45448#Comment_45448 = from Paul B.
"I haven't upgraded to Kontakt 7 yet, but I will. When I do, I expect that to migrate existing Ableton Live sets, I will have to go into each track which contains a Kontakt 6 instance, save as a preset, load Kontakt 7, and load the preset before removing Kontakt 6? Keeping them on Kontakt 6 will only work as long as MacOS support for Kontakt 6 continues, so I'd prefer to migrate early.
Is there an easier way? If not, can a migration option be added to Kontakt 7 to directly transfer loaded instruments and settings from a Kontakt 6 instance found on the same track, or is this too complicated/restricted by the host application?"
