How to optimize Kontakt 7's "Import Content"

Hi

I have just started using Kontakt 7 after having been with Kontakt since the very first version. I have more than 100 folders with non-player Kontakt instruments, i.e. .nki and .nkm files. I want to import this content into the new browser and I can do so but only one folder at a time. When I select a folder, only the instruments in that specific folder are imported, i.e. no subfolders are included, meaning that each and every folder must be imported separately.


Is the a more efficient way to import content into Kontakt 7's the library browser?

Thanks a lot for any help :),

    Hey @Sorenrv By the time you read this you might have finished the tedious importing. I contacted the Kontakt team to get an answer to your question. This function is not yet implemented but should be in one of the next Kontakt 7 updates.

    Jeremy, thanks a lot :). Actually I have awaited a reply to my question before proceeding. Now I will systematically go through each folder with .nki and .nkm files and import them ... I hope that the new library navigation and search method is worth the effort :).

    Actually, this feature might be available in a round of beta testing soon, but I don't know when exactly. Would you be interested?

    Let me know if you need more hands on deck. We're set to try and do away with our Quickload database(s) and bring it all into the K7 folder structure as soon as we can test, understand and pull it off successfully.

    Said database and spans 15+ years of large film scoring libraries and needs to be done on about 8 systems.

    Hi Jeremy

    Yes, thank you, I am very interested in participating in beta testing the improved import metehod. Awaiting further information, I will NOT proceed with importing my Kontakt instruments using the current import method. Please note that another NI community member has chipped in, offering to participate. It looks that he/she has a huuuge library to import compared to mine :).

    @R3kl355 @Sorenrv I've forwarded your emails, you should be invited for the beta soon. I'm not sure in which round the feature will be implemented, so check the notes before installing. Also as it's a Beta, it might be a good idea to backup these files before proceeding, just to be extra safe!
