    Hello there!! to all those who have encountered the same issue with Kirk Hunter's Kinetic Strings (installing in Kontakt 7) here is my answer and solution: First - following Kirk's installation guide- I opened the first .rar file with the app KEKA which created 2 folders ...one folder called Instruments Original and another one called Instruments Plus which contained the extracted sounds (basses, cellos, violas, violins, Kinetic strings LOW RAM and Kinetic Strings Plus ...aall with the extension.nki) Then I opened a Logic project with an instrument track that contained Kontakt 7... I opened Kontakt 7 and clicked on Kontakt's FILE and clicked on LOAD...Then selected my EXHD where all my native instruments have been installed including th folder above called Instruments Plus with the extracted strings sounds (basses, cellos, violas, violins etc.) I had to load manually each sound with the extension .nki... Now Kinetic strings plus live in Kontakt 7 as part of my Logic project.. Hope this helps as I spent days trying to figure it out!!!!

    Hi Spiramus ,

    Because you originally posted your question on your own profile page then I explained it to you and even sent you an answer as a PM

    It's quite alright that you also post your question here as I told you to do in the future to make people see/notice your post !

    I will post my own answer for your question here again then others can join discussion or help if they have more or better to add !

    please take a look at my answer here ! (treat you hard drive files as had they been install files)

    Otherwise then please contact Kirk Hunter Studios and ask how to install and use ! (I took a peek and I did not find any answer)

    My guess is that they sent an email with instructions and a serial !

    Thank you Poorfellow !!! When I downloaded the 11 files there was a 12th file which was really a URL like a guide as to how to install which at first I found it hard to comprehend here it is ::https--khkinetic.s3.amazonaws.com-installation

    I contacted Kirk Hunter telling him that I needed a tutorial in order to show me how to transfer my Kinetic strings plus into Kontakt and his response was: " I am not sure I understand the question. The procedure to open an instrument is the same with this library as any other Kontakt instrument."

    Meanwhile I just re-read the guide and used the KAKA app to extract all files and when it finished I option copied and pasted them into my natives folder in my EXHD. I haven't checked whether the Kinetic strings are in Kontakt7 yet .. I will and get back.. thank you again!!
