Where is the Absynth 5 pdf manual located?

It doesn't appear to be part of the Komplete 13 installation and no longer appears to be on the ni site.

    If you installed Komplete 13 correctly, the manuals are located in a <Documentation> directory where the instrument was installed (FM8, Absynth,etc.)

    Usually on C:/Program Files/Native Instruments/Absynth (or similar location on Mac).

    All installation is handled by Native Access, so not sure what is meant by "If you installed Komplete 13 correctly...".

    The only documents in

    C:\Program Files\Native Instruments\Absynth 5

    are License Agreement stuff. No manual. That was the first place I looked.


    Search results on the ni site for "absynth manual" don't show any link to it on the first couple of pages of results.

    This page is linked:

    "How to Find NI Product Manuals"

    saying you should go to the product page and find the manual from there. But of course there is no Absynth product page, at least that I can find.

    Ironically however, the above page uses Absynth 5 as the example of how to locate a NI Product Manual.

    Perhaps ni would like to update that page, and also make it possible to find the Absynth manual by searching?


    Monochrome thank you, those links are super useful!

    They reveal not only the manual, but all the old installs AND presets appear to be available too. Very nice indeed.

    Would be great if the search results revealed such relevant info.
