Is it possible to buy a K14 CE hard drive from NI if you are already an owner? I need help with the huge libraries and cinematic instruments included with the Collectors Edition, wasn’t aware that instruments like Lore are close to 75GBs in size. Anyone else struggling with these large downloads?

    @AKB48 There are no hard drives for our bundles anymore. If you have issues with large downloads in Native Access, feel free to reach out here: http://bit.ly/NIsupport_install Please note it's our busiest time of the season, so reply times might be longer than usual.

    For those who want to download/save any LARGE Instruments (up to 34GB) for future use so you won't ever have to do it again, there is only one option that I know of. Native Access downloads them in ISO format and windows then "mounts" them in a virtual drive before they can be installed by Native Access.

    You can copy the iso file from your download folder only while it is being installed by N.A. and if Native Access finishes installing the VST first, it will delete the downloaded ISO file ONLY after your copy process is complete.

    It is no doubt tedious, but you can also peck away at it by using Native Access to "Reinstall" any instrument whenever you are sitting at your PC. So Slowly but surely you can gather all the ISO files over time if you like.

    What to do with them then?

    IF YOU ARE MISSING AN INSTRUMENT in Native Access (you have the option to install it) you can then revert to the old fashioned way of installing said instrument if you have the ISO.

    If you Mount the ISO for the instrument and then install it, the instrument will then show installed in Native Access after you refresh it or restart it. Be sure to change the content location to the same content location you have set in your N.A. preferences. Otherwise, you will have to repair the install by pointing N.A. to wherever you accidentally installed the content. By default, it will install the content to your Document folder (in your C Drive) and that is the last place your want your content.

    So in practice, if you are setting up a new PC and you have freshly installed Native Access, you can manually install every ISO you have in this manner. If you have a Komplete CD or hard drive package for an earlier version and you want to install select items from them, you can use this method as well.

    Oh yeah that’s a good idea @MyStudioOne does anyone have all the giant .dmg Mac files on thumb drive or portable drive they’d be willing to sell me? Mainly the super large ones like: Lores, Choir Omni’s, Mysteria, Piano Colors & maybe the Symphony Series stuff?
