Kontakt does not load Aliases and Symbolic Links :(

Arceo67 Member Posts: 2 Newcomer

I’m on Ventura and I’m trying to organize my kontakt libraries.
I don’t want to use quick load, I’d rather use finder aliases or symbolic links.

To my surprise I find out that Kontakt 7 does not load aliases and does not load symbolic links via drag and drop. When I drag an alias onto a kontakt plugin, it gives me an error message that says “The format file is not supported o corrupt”. When I drag a symbolic link It Kontakt does not accept the file.

Am I doing something wrong? I can’t think of a reason why it should not load aliases or symbolic links, since quick load items are themselves aliases.

Does anybody has had such need? How did you solve this issue?
Thanks in advance

    I could care less about such things. Everything I use is pretty much a customized user preset and I'm getting exactly what I want quickly. And if it's not exactly right I modify it so it is and save it as a user preset. Typically I do this sort of thing when I first get a new library as I audition their presets and functionality. That makes it easy to begin using it when I consider that library as a candidate for a project.
