Kontakt Factory Library 2

drdr Member Posts: 1 Newcomer


I am installing Komplete 14 and notice the Kontakt Factory Library 2 is quite big (39GB+).

I want to save space. Can I safely uninstall Kontakt Factory Library (24GB)and install Kontakt Factory Library 2 without breaking anything?

If yes, is there an accepted workflow for this on Mac OSX that I can follow?

    I searched around and came to the conclusion that FL2 is a better version of the contents in the old one, plus additional material. Some people found that some sounds has been renamed, but there's either the same or better samples for everything old, one way or another. So I deleted mine.

    I only unticked it in Kontakt's preferences and deleted the folder. There might be a file lurking around somewhere too to tell Native Access it's supposed to be gone.

    @drdr Yes you can uninstall the old Kontakt factory library, it won't affect the new one. To totally uninstall a product on a mac, this is the way to go: How to Uninstall Native Instruments Software from a Mac Computer

    @Jeremy_NI Does that mean that the old Kontakt factory library is included in the factory library 2?

    Also, if I have already installed the factory library 2 do I need to install the factory selection 2 for some reason?

    @Neoxis Not all is included but most of it and for some of it, instruments have been improved or updated.

    No need for the Factory Selection 2, it's only a cut down version of the full one.
